According to scientists, Amber is a fossilised tree resin that has taken millions of years to form. The scent we know as "amber" however has very little do with this pre-historic sap. Amber exists in fragrance as a fantasy note, an accord, where several ingredients, particularly resins, find harmony together to form what is referred to as "amber".
