Description and usage notes:

Description from Givaudan: “Azarbre has a warm honey note with aspects of dried flowers. At 2 or 3% will enhance the effect of ionones. When used at up to 10% it blends the woody and floral components of a fragrance together. Particularly suited for honey-sweet florals.” 

Arcadi Boix Camps, writing in 2009, laments that Azarbre is “missing from most laboratories.” He describes the odour as “ woody-honey-rooty, with notes of dry flowers” and suggests that it “forms great accords” with a range of materials including rooty essential oils, agar wood oilstobacco absolute, ionones, damascones, phenylacetates and others.

    Doesn’t particularly smell of honey, on it’s own or in a blend.. not quite sure on this one, but I may be using it wrong… I since ordered Honey Absolute instead

    Hay, tobacco, ​a ​lukewarm smell… Really nice. Smells kind of dry flowers, pipe tobacco, sweet and dry at once… and I can detect a little hint of damascones, but just as a shade… A fruity version of iso butylquinolene, less dry and nicer to my nose, as it reminds me of that typical tobacco store and its alluring smell.

    Ok, i LOVE this material, but it can be tricky. At a first sniff I did’t recognise honey aspects. But if you compare Azarbre to Honey sig-nature,
    the honey facet will be easily recognisable.
    I can also smell a ionone-like aspect, which makes it velvety-woody.
    And there comes the tricky facet: to my nose there’s a kinda fresh-herbal hint bringing an aromatic aspect to the whole thing, especially in high %.

    Lovely soft and, yes, ionones with a honey aspect.
