Description

Ambergris Oil-Gold Ambergris @10% in Fractionated coconut oil.
A rare natural aromatic and aphrodisiac used in perfume, incense and medicine for thousands of years.

This is an oil infusion/extract of Gold Ambergris in Fractionated Coconut oil. In aroma, it is velvety smooth with a dry, sophisticated marine note, hints of cured tobacco, petrichor, (the scent of the earth after rain), and an underlying soft musk with delicate notes of warm animal fur. It is most often used in solid and oil-based perfume blends to add dimension and anchor more fleeting notes.

Ambergris oil has a tenacious note reminiscent of our own skin and seems to act as a bridge, blurring the line of where the perfume starts and our natural body odour ends. This aromatic affinity may also contribute to the anchoring power and longevity of perfumes that contain Ambergris.

A perfume does not necessarily need to mask or hide our natural fragrance. It can also work with and integrate into our personal odour, building on it, creating and projecting a new aroma/persona with natural depth and authentic presence rooted in our own.

Ambergris is Sustainably Sourced & Cruelty-Free

Expelled through excretion or emesis by the Sperm whale, (depends on whom you ask), Ambergris is thought to form in the digestive tract as a response to the irritation of residual squid and cuttlefish beaks which the whale cannot digest. Nowadays one also finds man-made objects wrapped in a protective layer of Ambergris. These intrusions and inclusions are most often plastic products such as bags, pieces of fishnet and other garbage we cast to the sea.

With the aid of a compound produced in the whale’s bile duct, a waxy substance is created that coats the irritants and builds up in layers. These layers are one of the indicators of real Ambergris.
Once Ambergris exits the whale it can float on the ocean for years and lie undiscovered on a beach for decades. This is where all the shop Ambergris comes from. No whales were harmed in its collection. The material used in this oil hails from beaches in the south Pacific and the UK.

Ambergris oil as a perfume fixative and aphrodisiac

Ambergris is a cross-cultural, traditional medicine used to treat respiratory diseases, strengthen and balance the organs and nervous system. Used for thousands of years in perfume and incense, it is considered a natural fixative that extends the lifespan of perfume on the skin and anchors more fleeting notes. In many cultures, it is considered an aphrodisiac increasing libido and sexual powers.

In some Arabian traditions, a drop or two of Ambergris oil is rubbed into the scalp as an aphrodisiac and sexual attractant. This is reminiscent of the more modern use of Poplar Bud Oil which blends with the scalp’s natural odour creating a unique and attractive personal fragrance.

Less is more

Like other natural animal-sourced fragrance compounds, the olfactory magic and power of Ambergris lie not in the strength of its aroma.
It does not transform a perfume by adding the intensity of its aroma proportionally to a blend. Instead, it operates in a less obvious manner, as if anchored in the interstices of aroma, rounding out or pulling together a bouquet from underneath, or inside. It adds depth, tenacity and extra dimension to compositions by means of a mechanism that is not well understood. To a great degree, all animalics work on the principle of less is more. Only a minute amount is needed in a perfume to exert its influence.

Prepare your own Ambergris oil, tincture or attar

Ambergris is used in perfumes as an alcohol tincture or an oil infusion at a very low 1% to 5%.

Oil of Ambergris can be added to an alcohol-based perfume blend at up to 20%, (@95% alcohol), without clouding. Higher water content will lower the % of oil one can add.

Please note- This is NOT a perfume! It is a perfume ingredient and is meant to help fix, transform and elevate perfume compositions. It does not smell like commercial perfumes nor is it intended for use as a perfume. That being said, in some cultures, a drop or two of Ambergris oil is considered an aphrodisiac when rubbed into the scalp or other key points on the body where it blends with our natural aromas.

    A long drawn-out whiff off the skin produced a subtle yet delicious scent. A tiny amount added to an experimental formula gave it the smoothness and integration I was looking for. Very nice.

    this is a nice ambergris tincture with a distinctive ocean scent profile…..not to heavy so would be wonderful to fix and enhance lighter floral compositions.
    would recommend as an alternative to making own.

    By itself, smells like bare, clean skin, a little waxy, very subtle. Vaguely salty, but I wouldn't pick it out as marine without knowing the source. But somehow the effect in a blend is amazing. Always love this shop, thanks!

    Very great seller! Shipping was prompt, packaging was careful and beautiful.

    I had never smelled real ambergris before; it was a very interesting experience. As a "musk girl", I am planning to add a small amount to my favorite oils, and hopefully even come up with a scent of my own. I plan to order more in the future, and will definitely be visiting this shop to do so. Thank you very much.

    Upon initial application to my wrist, there is very little scent, but then… BAM… it explodes on my skin. In a good way! This would certainly be a phenomenal addition to a perfume creation, giving depth and that unmistakeable ambergris scent.

    I will need to keep working with this one. Absolutely nothing at all wrong with the product, more what's wrong with me. Deviated septum and I only have a sense of smell in one nostril. Will try using this as a base, which is how I believe it's intended to be utilized.

    This smells like salty skin with a hint of sweat and just a touch of ocean breeze. It's soft. It's sexy. It's going to be fun to blend with other scents. Shipped quickly and securely.

    I'm so glad you sell this and I'm especially glad how you harvest this product.
    I know it's difficult to find a good bottle to house this, however, something that allows a drop at a time would be awesome! I've seen somewhere really small bottles like you have pictured.
