Musky and woody, with a warm vanilla undertone, a classic Amber formula that invokes sensuality and passion.

Our Amber includes notes of labdanum, an ancient Egyptian perfume ingredient obtained from tree resin that is leathery and sweet, and Benzoin, a frankincense-like tree resin with a lush vanilla tone. The result is a creamy, warm musk.
Amber often conjures the image of the golden gemstone obtained from fossilized tree resin that usually captures plant and animal matter in its formation. But Amber perfume is a bit different. It obtains its name from the early and legendary perfume ingredient called Ambergris.
In the early 18th century, Ambergris was one of the most lucrative items along the trade route. Although romantic in its history, it’s a bit grotesque in reality. Ambergris was obtained from the intestine of the now-endangered male sperm wale, and invoked a deep musky animalistic essence. Needless to say, Ambergris is not produced in modern times. Although modern day “Amber” derives its name from Ambergris, it is dissimilar to the original perfume ingredient in many ways. Amber spurred the family of “Oriental” perfumes, an era of fragrances with a musky vanilla base that are characterized as spicy, fiery, and bold.

"Our mission at Herb & Root is to encourage the timeless experience of adorning oneself with fragrance.
Perfume has its own intimate way of evoking emotions and invading the psyche. Carrying the souls of its plant notes, perfume is somehow physical and metaphysical at the same time. It makes us feel confident, vibrant, serene, cared for, connected to the earth.
Today, the pace of modern life has broken that connection. In the frenzied pursuit of living, we forget to let our minds wander, to embrace the world around us. We surround ourselves with visible beauty but we often neglect our noses, yearning to be connected to nature"
