Description and usage notes:
Description from Kao: “A very soft delicate woody amber note with a natural richness”, this is a very reasonably priced amber material that can be used alone or in support of the more expensive materials such as Ambrofix and Ambermax.
Kao have this to say about its uses: “AMBER CORE excellently harmonizes with many materials. It blends well with a delicate composition such as Citrus and Muguet. It can be used in a big amount, recommended use level ; up to 50%, bringing to life a natural spirit in all fragrances”
Such a natural spirit indeed that, despite being entirely synthetic in origin, it has been found in at least one “all natural” fragrance currently on the market!
Arcadi Boix Camps, writes in 1999 that it “is beautiful, velvety and delicate, smelling similar to cedramber but with a different ambery nuance that is less costly. It is very effective in functional products because it is quite substantive. It is also very useful for boosting the fragrance of detergents. It forms part of the base called begur.”
Rarely offered in small quantities.
