Description and usage notes:

This almost solid, sticky resinoid is produced from Cistus ladaniferus gum-resin. Invaluable in many types of fragrance especially amber, incense and chypre types it contains a material similar in odour to that present in ambergris.

Like most absolutes, this is an expensive product and for this and other reasons several materials are commonly used alongside it, including Ambrofix, Copaiba Balsam, Hexyl Acetate, Hexyl BenzoateVertofix and Vertenex.

Labdanum is an essential part of the Amber Accord, along with vanilla (vanillin, ethyl vanillin) and benzoin.  This accord is one of several meanings of the word ‘amber’ as it is used in perfumery that are explained in this blog post.
