Ambergris, a material which has fascicnated people for thousands of years and is seen by some as a medicine, by some as an aphrodisiac, and to perfumers it's been a very useful tool since before the era of synthetic fixatives. Bloom are great admirers of the ambergris phenomenon in human history and culture and we want to make this mysterious substance available to the general curious public, connoisseurs modern alchemists, historians and ancient medicine methods practitioners.

What is ambergris? It's a pathological metabolite from the rectum of a whale. It forms over wounds caused by the beaks of squid and octopuses these whales feed on. Once out - a piece of this substance can spends decades floating in the sea and in the process it matures from dark brown to white.

White ambergris with a high content of ambrein is more valued by perfumers, black (heavy on the fecal nuance) ambergris is also in high demand from certain interested parties.

Each piece of ambergris is unique and prices vary greatly. If you are after a certain odour profile or quantity please get in touch at a_dealer@bloomperfume.co.uk. Otherwise browse the selection below.
