Hydroxyambran is an aromachemical for use in, for example, perfume, cosmetics, soap, and air fresheners.


Please read all information below and general product information before purchasing.
Not intended for use in food, vape liquids or other internal use.
Intended to be mixed with other fragrances: on its own the scent can be dull or even unpleasant.
Do not use undiluted on the skin: it is a raw material, not a finished product.


Hydroxyambran has the scent of wood, amber and something sweet: musk, nuts. The odour is strong, and the substance is usually in solid form. Making a solution of, for example, 10% can therefore be useful. Although IPM seems most suitable for this, TEC and DPG are also used in practice to dissolve this substance. Like virtually every fragrance in this direction, it fits almost everything, whether or not in combination with similar fragrances. It has a slightly different scent and offers the perfumer some extra choice. You usually use between 0,1% and 5% of this substance in the fragrance composition, but it is certainly suitable for higher doses, where it then will dominate the scent. It adds warmth and subtle sweetness to the scent. In perfumes it is mainly a base note, it is stable in most products, including soaps and acidic products.

Store in a cool, dry, dark place and out of the reach of children.


Hydroxyambran is usually a clear to white solid at room temperature, but in certain conditions or batches it can be liquid, where it is a colourless, clear liquid. The purity is at least 97% and the substance has a fairly long shelf life. It does not occur in nature, it is a synthetic substance.

Not everyone will be able to smell this material: especially in its pure form and without other fragrances. It is also conceivable that sometimes it works and other times it doesn't, one batch works and the other batch doesn't.
