Product Overview

Unlike the synthetic Amber perfumes that are commonly sold, Fossilized Amber Oil has a completely different aromatic profile. The extraction process yields a dark, viscous oil with smoky, resinous, leathery, tar-like, woody-dry notes and hints of Pine and balsamic overtones. The aroma is not sweet at all and because of this it is not often used as the main note in a perfume unless modified with other aromatic oils.

While there are several sources for Amber throughout the world, Eden Botanicals is the sole source in North America for this rare form of Fossilized Amber Oil. Compared to the oil extracted from Baltic Amber, our Fossilized Amber Oil is extracted from 35-million-year-old Himalayan fossilized tree resin.[1] Unlike our oils from living plants, there is no essential oil that can be directly obtained from the fossilized resin. Instead, the oil comes from a process called “dry distillation” whereby the Amber resin is processed over high heat until an oily substance is obtained.[2]

When used in trace amounts, Fossilized Amber provides unique and interesting nuances in natural perfumes. It dissolves in both 190 proof alcohol and fixed oils and makes an excellent fixative and base note. For a pre-blended and easy to use dilution of this oil, please see our Amber Oil, Fossilized - 5%.

Amber

Rating

fossilized note, unique in sense that's it's not similar to the ambery-powedery notes of Labdanum.

Mechanic workshop, bulldozer, asphalt rink

Rating

Beautiful smell, some kind of old equipment, such as a bulldozer or an asphalt rink, with a note of some very noble wood. Very earthy, dark smell of low frequencies.

Bought mine at least 10 yrs ago and it still smells heavenly. Mine is solid but will try to liquefy with alcohol.

Diluted 50%

I need to add: I diluted it by half with jojoba oil OMG!! Changed it into a mess of smoke and darkness, could stand on its own, a mysterious depth.
