Oriscent Ambergris is a vintage attar that is made from aged Indian sandalwood oil and ambergris, two of the most prized and sought-after ingredients in the world of perfumery. This attar is a rare find, and it is available only at Scent Legends, making it one of the most exclusive and elusive scents in the world.
Ambergris is a rare and highly prized ingredient that is found in the intestines of sperm whales. It is believed to have been used in perfumery since ancient times, and it is still used today in high-end fragrances. Indian sandalwood oil, on the other hand, is extracted from the heartwood of the sandalwood tree and is known for its rich and creamy aroma.
What happens when you combine a beautifully crafted Indian sandalwood with the finest beach-combed ambergris? You get an oil that is worthy of the Oriscent label, with its majestic and powerful sandalwood married to a quiet, but transformative ambergris that exalts the blend into the level of a fine natural perfume.
Now leave to mature unmolested in a dark and cool wooden chest, then open 13 years later in 2020. The resulting heady scent is testament to the effectiveness of careful ageing as a way to improve on the sum of its parts. This definitely belongs to the Scent Legends family of rare vintage oils.
The fragrance of Oriscent Ambergris is a combination of the rich and creamy Indian sandalwood oil and the oceanic ambergris, which have both aged and merged together over time to create a mesmerizing aroma. The sandalwood provides a warm and woody base to the scent, while the ambergris adds a salty and musky quality that gives the fragrance its unique character.
