    Default Is anyone here into pure ambergris? Indian Ocean Ambergris

    Anyone here into ambergris? I recieved a sample of pure Indian Ocean Ambergris. I heard about ambergris but have never smell pure ambergris before... Well let me tell you what it smells like... Sweet, tobacco, musky and animalic... Very addicting... Nice and very unique...

    There's a guy on eBay who sells various localities of it, along with deer musk oil and pods, sandalwood, and oud. Definitely gonna throw down on some when I get the cash.

    raw ambergris can not be tabacoo sweet and nice!
    it is horrible first months and need to be aged very well.
    then after some time it becomes odorless or something that smells like bad breath smell.

    price of best quality i can get here in bahrain is $220 for a 12 ml pure tincture oil by asaq
    so it is not somthign u can buy for 50 dolla.

    I've made a tincture of ambergris but I think it needs to cure as it has very little odor. I've bought ambergris oils from other sources and think that some of it at least is authentic. But my own tincture hasn't developed any of the sweetness I associate with ambergris. I guess I'll have to wait six months. My next project is to make ambergris oil either by combining oil (and shaking) with my tincture or directly heating ambergris (very gently) in oil. The reason I want to try this is I think the solubility might be better in oil than it is in alcohol such that I could come up with a more aromatic extract.

    Dear Savitar,
    Can you tell me who this guy is? I've been getting ambergris from a place in New Zealand.
