    Default the ambroxan in Dior's Sauvage

    is that strong ambroxan smell in Sauvage just ambroxan (or rather a special version of ambroxan) alone or is it an ambroxan accord?

    i ask this, because i have ambroxan (well... it's ambroxide from Symrise) and it's not a very strong smell to my nose. i know, it must be diluted well, so i smelled it at 10%, 1%, 0,1%, ... dilutions and it seems that the 0,1% is the sweet spot to me. above that, i can't smell it that clearly (probably overflows my nose) and under that, it gets weaker and weaker. but that 0,1% sweet spot is still pretty weak. maybe i'm almost "anosmic" to it.

    BUT i can clearly smell the same (or very similar) ambroxan smell in Sauvage. it's like... 100 times stronger. how is this possible?

    I m very interested in it ,too.
    I think that there is some ambrinol in sauvage, but maybe some captive musks
    I am very curious: anyone knows what chemicals give that "sweet sea" impression in the top notes? It s something like a "new plastic" smell...

    New plastic= indole. But Sauvage not smell indolic to me.

    I think something in the dynascone family that has a distinct "new smartphone" smell

    Dior Sauvage is Creed Aventus on amber steroids.
    It has sinergy between different amber molecules, but the element you describe is likely AmberXtreme, Ambrocenide or Timberol. They provide the upper spectrum of amber accords, but I think perfumers should be careful with these amber molecules, because I know people that have developed hypersensitivity to them. I have noticed that niche sector tends to overdose on them lately.
    Perfumers, be mindful!

    Yes Dynascone also smell plastic but different type than indole ( less naphtha-gasoline more electronic). Indole is styrene and gasoline like new car/ plastic.
