Description

Description

The oil is an excellent plant-based substitute to animal musk notes in perfumery, and has a highly persistent scent, which makes it perfect as a fixative or a base note in fine fragrances. Ambrette seed oil is distilled from the dried seeds of Abelmoschus moschatus (also known as Hibiscus mochatus, musk mallow and musk seed). This perennial shrub is native to tropical Asia and widely cultivated in other tropical countries. It produces bright yellow, hibiscus-like flowers with purple centres, followed by hairy seed pods containing several kidney bean-shaped seeds. The seed pods are dried before distillation.
