WHAT IS THE SCENT PROFILE OF BLACK AMBERGRIS
Our black Indian Ocean Ambergris oil is naturally thick, rich and exceptionally musky sweet. It rubs on with a natural licorice like herbal top note, which mellows down into the sweet slightly oceanic animalic 'basement like mildewy' muskiness that will linger on your skin for amazingly many hours.
Perfumer's Note... Black ambergris is the rawest form of ambergris, which means that it lacks the overtly sweet note like that of the golden and white ambergris varieties, hence it tends to be less expensive on the market. The defining character of black ambergris is similar to that of tar or pitch. The essences of note is oceanic, animalic fecal, mildewy, sour, bittersweet, musky, sharp, penetrating and naturally spicy similar to that of dried cloves.
This is a robust bold fragrance best suited for those who prefer perfumes that have animalic oceanic dark notes such as opium, cistus, opomax, labdanum or pepper, and who are not intimidated by such a distinguished and assertive fragrance. Truly an oil to add variety to the connoisseur's already well stocked repertoire of fine essential essences. Lastly, it is sweet, but is the least sweet of them all. In addition, as it is a complex scent all on its own, it also blends well with leather notes, woody notes and floral notes, adding an evocative, aphrodisiac and addictive character to fine essences... olfactory pleasure par excellence.
The Perfumer said, if true ambergris and musk was so cheap and readily available at the current prices that these are being sold for, compared to the actual market price, he would buy from these online sellers himself enough of each to fill a bath tub and bathe in it twice a day, interchanging between ambergris and musk.
