Description

This listing is for 5% and 10% tincture of brown Ambergris in alcohol.

It was prepared by macerating Brown/Black Ambergris in 95% Ethanol and allowed to infuse for over 9 months before filtering and bottling.
It has dark tobacco and sweet marine notes wrapped in a dry animalic musk. It has a hint of mint and is void of the fecal notes often associated with dark Ambergris. Instead, it exhibits a layer of soft warm animal fur.

A rare natural ingredient used in perfume and medicine for thousands of years.
.
Ambergris is one of those classic mystical ingredients that we find revered and referred to in many ancient texts and cultures.
Expelled through excretion or emesis by the Sperm whale, (depends whom you ask), Ambergris is thought to form in the digestive tract as a response to the irritation of residual squid beaks and cuttlefish bones which the whale cannot digest.

With the aid of a waxy compound produced in the whale’s bile duct, a substance is created which coats the irritants and builds up in layers over the irritants. These layers are one of the indicators of real Ambergris. (Many materials that look similar to ambergris are regularly found on oceanic beaches around the world).
Once Ambergris exits the whale it can float on the ocean for years and lie undiscovered on a beach for decades.

Ambergris has been used as medicine and in food, it is considered an aphrodisiac in many cultures and of course, it has been a key ingredient in the creation of perfume and incense for thousands of years.

Like other natural animalic fragrance compounds, the magic and power of Ambergris lie not in the physical olfactory strength of its aroma.
Ambergris does not have an intense fragrance and does not transform a perfume by simply contributing its aroma proportionally to a blend. Instead, it operates in a less obvious and covert 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.

Ambergris is most often used in an alcohol tincture at a very low 1% to 3%.

Typically, a tincture of Ambergris will be left to macerate at least 6 months before it is considered ready to filter and use.
To a great degree, all animalics work on the principle of more is less.

Please note. This is NOT a perfume! It is a perfume ingredient and is meant to help transform and elevate perfume compositions. It does not smell like commercial perfumes.

    I really don’t know exactly how old this infusion tincture is but it smelled more benzoin than ambergris. Any ambergris scent (if I ever had any) seems like is long and only the alcoholic tincture remains. Disappointed given the 245.00 paid.

    I bought 5% concentration and could not really feel any smell … Had to dump the entire sampler bottle on my skin to just get small notes only lasting for five minutes … Very disappointed ☹️

    This literally knocked my socks off! Ambergris is subtle, and adds magic to a blend. This . . . I can’t wait to work with it.

    I ordered the 1ml and tested it with some of my fragrances and loved it so much I ordered more. This give nice warmth and substance to my fragrances and increases the staying power. I would like to sample other animal tinctures with hopes of enjoying them as much as this. Thank you for a quality product!

    This is the real deal – leaves a haunting, primal scent on you or your lover. It's not an aroma I can easily describe, but it's warm, like a freshly buttered toast, but it does seem to trigger something in one's mind that stays there. Once smelt, never forgotten.
    Wonderful stuff!

    A pure delight… This, combined with Tonka bean extract, will serve well in top quality incense mixes.
