Description and usage notes:
Undiluted Ambrofix comes in the form of fine crystals that will dissolve in ethanol and other perfume materials. However it takes a long time to go into solution (which can be a problem if you don’t have an automatic stirrer) and at concentrations above about 5% in ethanol it tends to crystallise out at lower temperatures, so it is presented here at 10% in DEP, which makes a more stable solution for those who prefer to work with liquids. If you prefer however we also have the undiluted solid. and, for those who prefer not to use DEP, we also offer it at 5% in DPG.
If you’re considering the solid note that Ambrofix will dissolve reliably in ethanol up to about 10% in a warm room, but it takes a lot of agitation: we don’t heat the solution (heating alcohol creates a fire risk) but we do use an automatic stirrer because it takes so long: be prepared to do a lot of shaking or stirring if you don’t have a machine to do it for you.
Description from Givaudan: “Ambrofix is a highly powerful, highly substantive and highly stable ambery note for use in all applications. The most suitable material for obtaining an authentic ambergris note.
Produced from a natural starting material, this chiral product contains one main high impact isomer.”
Effective from the smallest traces, through to 2% or even more and lasts for over a month on a smelling strip. One of the most useful chemicals in modern perfumery.
