    Default Would/does anyone here wear Amberbris oil?

    I ordered some off Ebay. Got it yesterday. It smells amazing. It was described as being strong and animalic, and I would agree with that. However, it is not overpowering at all. I only bought it because a) it was 3 and b) I love the way Creed use it in some of their frags.

    Contemplating wearing it. However, I don't know if my enthusiasm for it would be echoed by those who could smell it.

    Do you have a link to what you actually bought?
    I know you can make a tincture in alcohol, but I guess I've never seen an ambergris oil.

    A tincture is basically extracted "goods" (in this case the smell of ambergris) from something in an alcoholic solution. There's more to it than that, but that's a very basic explanation.

    I personally would avoid that like the plague, but only because I hate really sweet and overpowering scents and am not overly fond of strong animalics. So ambergris ain't my thing.

    Assuming it's the genuine thing and unbastardised, that looks like a reasonably good price.

    Thanks for the explanation .

    Based on that, I would say it is a tincture. It's quite thick and reminds me very much of the alcohol-based hand rubs you get in hospitals. It smells a LOT better though . I love it.
