    I received this magnificent ambergris from a brother who lives in Saudi Arabia
    A person felt it on me and said: it smells like clean! what is it like perfume?
    I answered: it's the sperm whale's ambergris
    it has nothing to do with Abdul samad Alqurashi, it's me who is put in this bottle
    the liquid changes depending on the temperature
    at some point it can become transparent, as it can become white thick milk !!

    Thats looks more like the synthetic thick white "Musk Tahara" attar? Does it smell sweet soapy with a thick consistancy?

    white is rather clean ... but even white hard to reach that colour ...
    Later I will make pictures so you can compare.
    Don't want to put you or the one who sold you this in any difficulty, just suprisping ...

    Salam alaykom akhi F4R1douX
    Thank you for your question
    I feel the sea and something clean, a smell that we are not used to feeling!
    An ASQ saleswoman felt it and loved it!
    By cons I do not like the smell of brown amber gray, too earthy.
    in your opinion akhi, can I macerate it with the Siberian musk seed I received from sibmusk?
    Djazakallah

    Looks like some type of fat , not ambergris unfortunately .

    You cant get white or clear ambergris oil or resin , the best 1000 year old pure white chunk made a tincture that was still "amber" colored so its most likely synthetic in the bottle

    ambergris has very different aspects.
    This one looks soapy suspect but maybe still is.

    Can you heat a needle and place hot needle on the piece and make a video of what happens and what do you smell when you do this ?
