Amber Attar, Rare Aromatic Extract


About Amber Essential Oil

Amber essential oil is a rare find, primarily used as a natural perfume and base note fixative for blending essential oils and natural perfumes. One of the great mysteries of the aromatic world is amber.   Historically, the term “amber” has been used to refer to both ambergris (an aromatic oil taken from the sperm whale), and amber (the fossilized resin of Pinus succinifera). Amber aromas historically found in the natural perfume world are blends or co-distillations  that imitate ambergris.   According to Steffen Arctander (the man who wrote Perfume and Flavor Materials of Natural Origin in 1960, still relevant today), its aroma is “rather subtle, reminiscent of seaweed, wood, moss with a peculiar sweet, yet very dry undertone of unequaled tenacity.” Today’s style of amber aroma is sweeter, balsamic, and more refined, with less focus on earthy mossy tones.
