Ambrette is an annual or biennial plant originating in India and tropical regions of Asia and Australasia. The seeds contained in the fruits are harvested from January to April. Ambrette Seeds are cultivated for their musky Essential Oil, which has long been used as a substitute for animal musk in perfumes. The dried seeds are crushed and processed by distillation, yielding an essential oil that becomes soil at room temperature. Ambrette Seed Oil is widely used as a light musk bottom note for delicate florals, as wellas an accessory note in oriental perfumes.
