An elusive scent
Amber is a very mysterious ingredient in perfumery. It is a term that causes huge confusion, as many people use it without understanding its meaning. It has nothing to do with the fossilised resin used in jewellery and is generally used to describe synthetic Ambergris. It is also often used to describe Labdanum based scents, as well as Vanilla based Oriental harmonies. This is the traditional Amber from India.
