Ambery notes and sweet woods
Balsamic ingredients such as ciste labdanum, powdery ingredients such as heliotropin, and ambery ingredients such as benzoin are typically found to create oriental fragrances. They give the feeling of warmth and comfort, while being very grown up.
Woods with sweet undertones such as Sandalwood, as well as its synthetic alternatives such as Bacdanol or Polysantol, will give a round, milky and soft leather undertones. Gaiac wood, a wood often confused with the its more famous cousin Palo Santo is also perfect to give a warm, sweet and balsamic note to a fragrance.
