Do you know the different between natural and synthetic fragrances? The popularity of natural fragrances is quickly on the rise – they are concentrated with less fillers, stick to your skin longer, and aren’t full of dehydrating chemicals. And you get the added bonus of knowing that everything your skin is absorbing is safe and suitable for most skin types.
The majority of synthetic fragrances are made from petrochemicals, which have been linked to cancer, reproductive toxicity, allergies, and more. These petrochemicals are absorbed into your skin and breathed into your lungs every time you use products that contain synthetic fragrance. Synthetic fragrances can be hidden in everything from cosmetics and skincare to cleaning products and candles.
Synthetic fragrances tend to be more offensive to those around you than natural fragrances. You know the feeling of walking into a department store and having your senses assaulted by the harsh smell of dozens of perfumes. When you wear synthetic perfumes and colognes, it’s very likely you’re causing those in your path to be offended from the overwhelming odor.
Natural Fragrances are Long Lasting
On average, natural fragrances will last anywhere from six to 15 hours. We read comments from our customers all the time saying they can smell their Ambre Blends on their clothes or skin a full day later. Synthetic fragrances last for an average of one to three hours. Dry skin has a hard time holding onto scent, and when you use a synthetic fragrance that contains alcohol it can contribute to your skin drying out even more. On the other hand, natural fragrances are sometimes known as “skin scents” because as your body temperature gradually increases, the scent begins to grow stronger.
Natural Fragrances Aren’t Overpowering
Natural fragrances such as Ambre Blends oil essences are alcohol-free and have a clean, rich, true scent. Since our oil essences are alcohol-free, they have a long shelf life – you’ll notice that the longer you have your oil essences the stronger they will get. Synthetic fragrances have a scent that is harsh, overbearing, and overpowering. Since synthetic fragrances are made with 80-97% alcohol, they have a short shelf life due to alcohol evaporation.
Natural Fragrances are Great for Sensitive Skin
Since natural fragrances use natural ingredients, they are less likely to cause allergic reactions. Natural fragrances also tend to have fewer ingredients to emit a richer aroma. Synthetic fragrances are full of fillers and chemicals, which means a much higher probability of causing an allergic reaction. If you have sensitive skin, it’s time to switch to a natural fragrance!
Natural Fragrances are Moisturizing
Natural fragrances are made with oils that will assist in nourishing and moisturizing your skin, helping it to retain the scent on your skin longer. You and only those close to you will experience the pleasant, natural aromas, not leaving a trail of odor behind you like traditional perfumes and colognes. Due to the high alcohol content in synthetic fragrances, these will remove your natural body oils causing dry skin. They are also highly flammable.
After seeing how natural and synthetic fragrances stack up to each other, which would you rather put on your skin? We think the choice is clear.
Meet the newest member of the Ambre Blends team, Scott Vanzo! Scott has been with Ambre Blends since November of 2019. He came on to help us get through the holiday season and then we never let him go! You can find Vanzo picking, packing, processing, and shipping orders as well as helping out in production.
What is a day in the life of Vanzo like? Other than Ambre Blends, I enjoy nature, sand volleyball, live music, lake life – a free living lifestyle.
What is your favorite part about working at Ambre Blends? More than anything, I appreciate that Ambre Blends is not just a place of employment, but a family.
What was your first job? My first job was bagging groceries any Joe O’Malias for $4.35/hour.
What is one fun fact about you that most people don’t know? I have worked for all of Ambre’s siblings with exception of Josh.
What do you enjoy doing outside of work? Spending time at my family’s lake property.
Why should people use Ambre Blends products? It’s locally made (with love) in Indianapolis with all natural products. Win-win.
What has been one of the most rewarding experiences of working at Ambre Blends? We had an opportunity to work with Central Indiana Land Trust. We planted over 1000 trees and learned about central Indiana flora and fauna.
One piece of advice? If I could convey a message to the world it would be to live present in every moment of every day…nothing is promised, but not to worry because everything happens exactly as it is supposed to.
We’ve made a design shift with our 10ml pure essence oils…and we’re PUMPED to tell you about it!
Introducing our new 10ml Pure Oil Essences, with a pump! Our new 10ml packaging and applicator was specifically designed to give you the exact amount of oil essence you need to radiate our Ambre Blends scents all day long. More importantly, the pump forces you to rub in the oil essence, creating the friction and heat necessary to immediately help activate the aroma of Ambre Blends, and your body heat and chemistry will take it from there.
Highlights of Our New Packaging
Another reason we’re excited about the new 10ml pumps because it will better protect the integrity of the oil essence. You won’t be rolling up anything that’s on your skin into the bottle (lotion, bacteria, a spray tan, etc.) but simply pumping the pure oil essence into your hand to use. The new bottles are to refill with a twist on/off pump applicator, so you can stock up with a 30ml that will refill your pump three times while saving you money.
One pump dispenses the perfect amount of oil, and a 10ml bottles with a pump last an average of three months. It’s the same oil as before, simply a new bottle design that we love…and we think you’re going to love it, too!

One minute you smell your Ambre Oil (or any scent in general) and the next you don’t. Are you worried that your oil has lost its scent or that your nose isn’t working?
You might think that your Ambre Blends Oil Essence doesn’t last very long, but in fact, it lasts all day (and into the night), much longer than alcohol-based perfumes! The truth is that you lose the ability to smell the oil essence after a period of time due to olfactory fatigue.
What is Olfactory Fatigue?
Did you know that in an average day, you inhale around 23,000 times? That’s a LOT of scents to be smelling each day! The olfactory receptors in your nostrils pick up these scents and communicate them to your brain. Our brain then tells us what the scent means. For example, the smell of burgers on a grill tell you that someone is having a BBQ.
Our brains have been programmed to tell us when there are changes in smell, not to tell us when things smell the same as they have over x amount of time. That’s why when you wear an oil essence, it becomes part of your constant environment and your brain eventually stops registering the scent, pushing it into the background. This is olfactory fatigue. But this is also why people will ask you what you’re wearing, since their nose will be able to pick up the new smell!
Want to Smell Your Products Again?
We hear it from our long-time customers all the time. “I love the smell of your products even though I can’t smell them on myself anymore. But people always ask me what I’m wearing so I know it’s working!”
With the recent addition of Ahnu to our Oil Essence line, Ambre Blends now has five different scents you can mix and match. We often suggest to our customers to switch up the scent you’re wearing to overcome olfactory fatigue. If you’re a faithful Ambre Essence wearer, try using Ahnu Essence for a little bit and then switch back to Ambre! All of our Oil Essences are made with the Ambre Essence as a base, and they are made to mix, match and layer.
Do you ever wonder who makes all the Ambre Blends products that you order? When you step into the Ambre Blends Disco Hut, you’ll find Alison Agan, our Production and Fulfillment Assistant, making your products by hand with love! Since starting with Ambre Blends in August of 2016, Alison not only works in production but helps with shipping.
What is a day in the life of Alison like? During the week, you can find me cranking out product at Ambre Blends and coming home to some Netflix and ping pong. Friday and Saturday, I’m working at The Compass. Sunday is for pajamas and organized sports. Or unorganized…it’s Sunday so who cares!
What is your favorite part about working for Ambre Blends? The team I have the privilege of working with every day. We get to come together and provide people with their favorite products not only nationally but internationally, which is mind-blowing considering the humble beginnings of Ambre Blends. We can get goofy and we can certainly get down to business. Did I mention it’s the best smelling work place on the planet? That’s another bonus!
What are some of your favorite organic products that you use? Organic food is my favorite. I love all food but organic is my favorite!
What is your favorite Ambre Blends product/essence? I’m an all-out oil junkie. Solace and Invoke mixed together is my magical potion of choice. The Skin Tonic has also completely simplified my skincare routine.
What is a fun fact about you that people don’t know? I was born in a truck on Highway 101 in California. Literally born Ford tough.
What do you enjoy doing outside of work? I’m a true night owl and like any late night social scene revolving around food. I love to paint so if I’m feeling creative I can go to town on a canvas. Also, I like to get out in nature with my two pit bulls and my husband.
Why should people be using Ambre Blends? What makes Ambre Blends so special is how intimate yet powerful it is. It is so memorable but not invasive. When I first met my husband he wore Ambre Essence. I was wearing one of his shirts and could not get over how addictive yet light the scent was. So yeah, Ambre Blends is great for starting relationships.
What has been one of the most rewarding experiences about working at Ambre Blends? Being able to use our platform to spread information about the benefits of not only wearing more natural products but the impact of supporting local businesses and companies that support a greener lifestyle.
What was your first job? Working for my family’s tree service. Hauling brush, driving a dump truck, roping down trees…you know…the normal job for a 13-year old girl!
It’s hard to believe that March has almost come to an end and we are a quarter of the way into 2016! With the first day of spring behind us, I have to share my gratitude with all of our loyal customers for such a tremendous 2015.
Ambre Blends had its largest annual increase in sales ever last year! Much of that is attributed to YOU, our loyal customers, who are branching out, wearing more of our line and making Ambre Blends part of your lifestyle. We’ve noticed that our customers who previously only wore one scent in a Roll-On are trying different scents and exploring our product offerings, including the Natural Deodorant, Pure Soy Wax Candles, Skin Tonic and more. Did you know that we have approximately 80 different products now?
Our retail stores are noticing the customer demand and stocking a more diverse selection of our products to help meet our customers’ wants and needs. Stores that have only carried Roll-Ons now stock Deodorant and Beard Kits, and we know we couldn’t have grown like this without you. Thank you to all of our incredible customers for the support, kind words, encouragement and suggestions. You have played such a large part in the growth of our company.
We have so much in store for you for the rest of 2016. For starters, we are now selling our Ambre Beards products individually as well as in the Men’s Grooming Kit. So gentlemen, if you need to restock your Face and Beard Oil, you can buy individually instead of only in the kit. We also will be debuting an unscented Skin Tonic just for your face (for men and women) due to customer demand. We’ve had people tell us that their eyes are sensitive to some of the oils when wearing the Skin Tonic on their face, so be on the lookout for small bottles in an unscented version.
April showers bring May flowers, but they’ll also bring in two new limited edition products you can find exclusively online. For Earth Day, we’ll be selling a limited quantity of our white birch display holders. We debuted these at our open house for our Indianapolis customers in December and they were a huge hit. Each birch display holds a 10 ml Roll-On and 30 ml refill bottle, which is a great way to let your oil sit and age before use.
Also in April, we’ll have a small limited supply of Ambre Essence Bubble Bath available online in the end of April. These will come in a beautiful frosted glass bottle. We’re launching the Bubble Bath just in time for Mother’s Day, so treat your mom to a luxurious bath, she deserves it. Get it while you can because once it’s gone, it’s gone!
Good news beer lovers: we are partnering with Sun King Brewing Company to come out with Lip Remedy made with hops. Instead of tasting like blood orange, this Lip Remedy will be similar to the taste of Sun King’s Grapefruit Jungle. If you’re not signed up for our newsletter yet, make sure to sign up so you can be informed about the release date of this limited edition product.
One of the things I’m most excited to announce is that I’m working on developing a baby line that will come out in the latter part of 2016. I was inspired to make a baby line a long time ago. I use these products on my own children because kids need quality, clean products just as much as adults do. I’ve been making my own products since my son was born, and with so many customers asking us for a children’s line we knew we had to do it. Our customers constantly tell me that they use our current products on their babies and toddlers, so we wanted to offer something more.
While the products we have now are already safe for your children, this will be a line exclusively for them. It will have a unique scent that is exclusive just for the baby line that will include oils beneficial to babies with colic, teething kids and more. In addition to products for your children, we’re developing on a belly oil for the baby line to help moms-to-be prevent stretch marks and also help heal stretch marks that are already present.
As always, we are committed to bringing you clean products that make you feel good about yourself and what you’re putting on your body. Thanks again for supporting Ambre Blends and helping us become the company we are today!
