What does the word ambrette mean?

Ambrette takes its name from the French word "ambre", referring to ambergris, a precious substance often used in perfumery. This olfactory note is extracted from the ambrette seed, i.e. the seeds of Abelmoschus moschatus plant, also known as musk hibiscus. It is often used as a plant-based alternative to ambergris, offering a musky, sensual fragrance subtly reminiscent of amber.

In the beginning…

The use of ambrette in perfumery dates back to antiquity, when it was prized for its aromatic and medicinal properties. The Egyptians and Romans were already using the note to create perfumes and scented ointments. Over the centuries, ambrette has continued to be appreciated for its unique fragrance and musky qualities, which add a warm, sensual touch to perfume compositions. Today, ambrette remains an ingredient of choice for perfumers seeking to create sophisticated, bewitching fragrances, ensuring that its olfactory heritage endures through time.

Ambrette cultivation

The ambrette is a plant native to India, tropical Asia and it is also found in parts of Africa. Ambrette is grown mainly for its seeds, which contain the essential oil used in perfumery. The plant is grown in areas with a warm, humid climate, where it can develop fully. The seeds are harvested by hand, then dried and pressed to extract the essential oil, which has a delicate, musky scent.
