Guerlain House Perfumer Thierry Wasser drew inspiration from the treasures of the East to create Ambre Eternel, a powerful sillage that makes the ideal scent for men and women alike. The main ingredient in this amber accord is Ambergris, which gives Ambre Eternel its sensual, voluptuous character. The amber accord then unfolds, roused by the spicy facets of cardamom and coriander, before delicately melting into a blend of orange blossom absolute, leather and woody notes.

Perfumer secrets

Ambergris is a rare and precious raw ingredient, naturally secreted by the whale, whose fine qualities are revealed after several years’ oxidation under the action of seawater and the sun’s rays. Thierry Wasser meticulously chose different blocks of ambergris on the basis of their iodine, warm or animal scent to create an exceptional blend, known as a communelle, and thereby obtain the perfect amber note. This note, traditionally extracted through a maceration process, will be used in the fragrance’s composition in the form of a tincture to preserve all of its purity.
