Ambergris Al Oud, a golden rich, oceanic woody warm and inviting composition with genuine Ambergris White and fine Agarwood. The sweet, intensely oceanic, slightly damp and musk like quality of Ambergris - used as a fixative in fine perfumes for centuries - intertwine with the richness of Agarwood in Ambergris Al Oud, making for the most intriguing, deeply aromatic scent experience - olfactory pleasure par excellence.
Ambergris Al Oud is a must have for any Connoisseur's Collection of Fine Mukhallats. It is a Classic Fragrance of the Sharif LaRoche Collection, a favorite Agar-scent and has become one of our bestsellers.
WHAT IS AMBERGRIS AND WHAT DOES IT SMELL LIKE
Ambergris is found in lumps of various shapes and sizes, weighing from ½ oz (14 g) to 100 or more pounds (45.36 or more kg). When initially expelled by or removed from the whale, the fatty precursor of ambergris is pale white in color (sometimes streaked with black), soft in consistency, with a strong fecal smell. Following months to years of photo-degradation and oxidation in the ocean, this precursor gradually hardens, developing a dark gray or black color, a crusty and waxy texture, and a peculiar odor that is at once sweet, earthy, marine, and animalic. Its smell has been described by many as a vastly richer and smoother version of isopropanol without its stinging harshness. (Wikipedia)
