Description and usage notes:

One of many woody-amber materials, this one is useful because of the floral reinforcement, herbal connotations and subtle complexity it conveys.

From IFF: “Warm woody, dry amber, cedarwood. Use: in woody complexes & provides good support for most florals. Substantive & has very interesting synergistic properties.”

Arcadi Boix Camps finds a complex herbal-agresic quality that is missing from other similar woody-amber materials. He says there are “quite interesting moss, thyme, origanum, sage, rosemary and lavender spike aspects. Of special interest is a clear rosemary absolute shade that recalls to me the woodiness of Mediterranean forests, despite that a humid earth shade is missing to reconstruct the overall scent, say, of the maritime forests in Catalonia in the northeast of Spain.

I like accords of Bornafix paired with a woody-rooty-herbal and humid chemical … Its accords with Tonilide or … Vulcanolide, are absolutely great.”

    Slightly cedar and ambery wood. To me it acts like the Iso E Super family (Timbersilk and exquisit Sylvamber). But I am not sure how to use it yet. Hopefully, a more experienced “parfumeur amateur” could share their experience with it.
