    Default Bois Ambrene Forte/Amberwood

    Does anyone here have any experience with Bois Ambrene Forte? I have had it sitting on the shelf for a few months now and every once in a while I pick it up and try to give it a whiff. I smell nothing. Absolutely nothing. This has been the case since the day it arrived in my studio. I can honestly say that this is one material that is baffling me. Even some of the other notoriously large molecules haven't given me much of an issue. This stuff is driving me nuts.

    I have it, and I can smell it, but it's not that strong. It's got a dry, scratchy, cardboard-y scent akin to norlimbanol. I've used it for incense blends more than anything, but I haven't found it to be that much of a key player.

    i played around with aromachemicals a few years ago, and bois ambrene forte was one of them. As opposed to you, I have no difficulty smelling this chemical. It's a musty, leathery, woody smell. Very, very dry. One of the fragrances that I blind bought, AdP Colonia Intensa smells exactly like this aromachemical. I almost immediately got rid of this bottle because the amberwood forte smell literally makes me gag. It's a true scrubber for me. The funny thing is that when I first smelled it, I liked it. The like turned into intensa hate quite quickly. And I hate to think that Acqua di Parma hung an entire fragrance on this chemical; I pretty much love everything else they make.
