    A good article to read is this one by Basenotes' very own ClaireV: http://www.basenotes.net/features/33...nd-half-truths

    Basically, the answer is there isn't a drop of the real stuff in this. It's entirely ambrox. Get a sample of Molecule 02 by Escentric Molecules, don't over spray it (to avoid going nose blind) and see for yourself.

    Maybe the vintage contained trace amounts. Old man Creed has confirmed in interviews he uses it.

    The problem is they can make the claim of using natural ambergris even if it is just one drop per batch, plus there are different grades and qualities of ambergris. Until we find out the secret formula, we will never know.

    While most will say it's mainly synthetic, whatever they're using is incredible imo. The late dry down remains incredibly pleasant to the nose and not at all like the sticky, overly sweet ambroxan I get in other frags.

    Agree.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.
