    Thumbs up Re: Got Ambergris?

    I didn't read the link you provided yet, but I use a tincture of ambergris (profumo.it) a lot. I layer it with just about any cologne, attar, EdP you can think of. I think it makes a tremendous difference in the quality of the scent worn.

    hope it is ambergris.

    They want some one to identify the ambergris ? Hey, why not give Olivier Creed a call ... ?

    Sorry, but that doesn't look like any ambergris I have ever seen. It usually looks like a rock. Hopefully it's not the intestines of some sea creature.

    Yes you are right - lots of ambergris pics can be found here:

    She should burn/melt a bit of it. That's how she'd be able to determine if it was truly ambergris or not.

    Been one of the 3 sites worldwide trading in ambergris which can be found googling , I am contacted by anybody who thinks he may have found ambergris.
    A good photo is usually enough to identify ambergris, but some people just send samples straight away and I have a large collection of weird stuff such as dried petroleum, plastic matters, rubber and other unidentified mostly stinking matters.
    The lump from the picture is definitly not Ambergris and it is not necessary any deeper inquiry to be sure of that. The photo is clear enough.

    Thanks Profumo! That's what I thought. It looks like sea junk. Poor thing is hoping she is going to get rich and it's probably barnacles or something...

    Frankly I don't think she will find anybody to buy this stuff.

    It looks like seaweed to me. (I don't know how it would become so hard, though.)

    I know! It broke my heart to read the part where she looks whistfully out the window of her tchotchke-filled cottage, where she lives off social security, childless and never married, and thinks "this could be my retirement"
