Olfactive description

Extremely powerful and elegant ambery odor with a musky, woody tonality.

From its discovery by Firmenich in the 1950’s to its breakthrough new production process via white biotechnology in 2016, AMBROX® SUPER delivers all the promises of sleek elegance and powerful iconic ambery signature.

Sparkling sensuality, AMBROX® SUPER offers musky and woody tonalities to the emblematic’ family of ambery ingredients.

Compared to CETALOX®, the profile of AMBROX® SUPER is more natural, more animalic, closer to ambregris in which it had been discovered (the profile of CETALOX® is more woody, dry).

Perfumery usage

AMBROX® SUPER is highly diffusive and brings a unique ambery effect from top notes to dry down.

Process

White Biotech is biotechnology employed in industrial processes. An example is the use of a micro-organism to produce a useful chemical by fermentation.
