FOSSIL AMBER

LET US TINCTURE IT

 

amber....
My amber suitcase, all of it is Baltic amber

 

We shall tincture about 5 grams of fossil Amber of Baltic origin. The age of baltic amber is estimated at 150 million years.
Can a perfume last over such a lapse of time?
In some way it definitely does, whoever worked amber to poslish it and shape it as I did for some time, knows the typical smell, similar to rubbery lemony frankincense.
A very delicate smell that transforms working this matter in a pleasurable olfactory experience.
Moreover amber is called bernstein in German, "burning stone", because it has been used as incense in Europe particularly during epidemies and for vibrational therapies.
The smell is there. Can it pass into the alcohol in order to be used as a perfume?

5.4 grams of Amber

The first step is to pulverize the amber, in this way we shall facilitate the tincturing. We can use the same technique that I use to pulverize Hyraceum stone, an other fossil material (the oldest is only 10000 years old) that can be tinctured and makes a very strong perfume.
