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 oils, tobacco absolute, ionones, damascones, phenylacetates and others.
