This precious ambrette is such a wonderful ingredient in natural perfumes. In seeking out the rare item, I notice that there is a CO2 extraction and a Steam Distilled extraction of the oil from the seeds. What is the difference between the oil from the CO2 extraction and the steam distilled oil and is one better for perfumery? Thanks for your time.

Dear Gina, in our organ we used the essential oil. There is also an absolute but I do not use it becaise maximum power is in the essential oil. The CO2 extract is even less powerful than the absolute.
Your perfumes will be only as good as your ingredients are. The best for ambrette is is the essential oil.
I do not like co2 extracts, they do not have life, brightness abd longevity,
