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 5% in DPG, 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, if you’d prefer a higher concentration liquid, we also offer it at 10% in DEP.
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.
