Adam Michael has this to say “Wow what a material, amber warm with sticky sweet medicinal qualities oozing within the top notes. The heart and base notes are lashings and lashings of sultry warm ambery charm and a never ending output of animalic-leathery shoe shop nuances. The longevity, the body, the intensity, the consistency, it is simply breath taking – lasting weeks on the smelling strip and several hours on the skin.
A true masterpiece material, maybe the best natural amber material available. Fantastic material for building amber bases, developing leather, tobacco, fougere, chypre and dry woody accords. Excellent material for enriching frankincense notes, adds interesting effects within citrus accords and blends especially well with sandalwood materials.
This material is obtained by molecular distillation from cistus labdanum extract, orange-yellow in colour and of a pourable viscosity.”
David Ruskin has this to say “Not at all sweet! It is strongly labdanum and reminds me of Dynascone or Animalis. I love it! Possibly some styrax there too. It smells to me of Plasticine (old and all the colours mixed together, like I remember from Junior school). After a while there is a dried fruit note. After that, it stays pretty much the same, and I imagine that it lasts for weeks on a smelling strip. Very nice material.”
Botanical Name: Cistus ladaniferus L

One of my favorites. Superlative for leather blends, I’ve used it for a boozy floral blend, cray enough it work very well with violet like notes (Ionones-Irones-Iris…). Can be used in substitution of Castoreum or Birch, though not the same result, it gives an amazing super long lasting animalic effect that is balanced and very peculiar…

This stuff is out of this world but also a puzzling to use.
Gives me an olfactory trip back to my youth and the barns and stables of nearby farms, this has a horsey, manure, hay note combined with medicinal balmy and unusual Plasticine bitter-sweetness. It’s completely odd but overwhelmingly intoxicating. One of the most interesting resins I’ve ever smelled, but perhaps not for everyone?

I really do adore this material. Amber sweetie to me is an animalic warm and intoxicating blend of benzoin, labdanum and Raspberry absolute all in one. It whisks me back to the dusty hot streets of Chennai.

This is great stuff for building amber based scents together with some labdanum abs, vanilla and African soap myrrh. benzoin, vanilla and woods. Still experimenting with it for sure.

A very useful fraction of Cistus ladaniferus, it is a blessing for anyone who fantasizes of the perfect leather accord. I am very happy to have come across it. It blends so well with Frankincense as well other traditional “leather” oils like rectified Birch. It is tenacious, however, and it will likely outlast even other powerhouse base notes.

Gorgeous, more elegant version of labdanum. That slightly bitter note makes it sophisticated and addictive. Very useful and beautiful material.

A fascinating oil. Very warming. Smelling neat, the dominating note I detect is “barnyard”, almost manure-like!

A wonderful, deep, rich leather-ish and animalic long lasting smell.Great alone or mixed with other scents in perfume. Goes really well with “woodsy” scents like sandalwood, cedar, and Peru balsam.

This is a MUST for leather accords. It also works beautifully in rounding out more deep and masculine amber accords. I definitely get resin-leather-sweet amber impressions.

Beautiful deep smoky and sensual amber. Leather with a touch of red fruits and powdery violets. My new favourite 🙂
