Its warm and sensual scent makes it a popular choice in oriental, woody, and floral fragrances. In cosmetics, musk ambrette is used in various personal care products such as lotions, creams, and soaps to add a unique and alluring fragrance.

Animal-Free Musk: Musk ambrette is particularly significant because it is one of the few natural musk fragrances that does not require animal-derived musk glands. Historically, musk was obtained from the glands of male musk deer, which raised concerns about animal cruelty and conservation.

It has been employed for its aromatic and soothing qualities, with uses ranging from stress relief to promoting relaxation. However, it's important to note that the use of musk ambrette in modern aromatherapy is less common compared to other essential oils and fragrances.
