Read Chapter 92 - Ambergris of Moby-Dick; or, The Whale by Herman Melville. The text begins: Now this ambergris is a very curious substance, and so important as an article of commerce, that in 1791 a certain Nantucket-born Captain Coffin was examined at the bar of the English House of Commons on that subject. For at that time, and indeed until a comparatively late day, the precise origin of ambergris remained, like amber itself, a problem to the learned. Though the word ambergris is but the French compound for grey amber, yet the two substances are quite distinct. For amber, though at times found on the sea-coast, is also dug up in some far inland soils, whereas ambergris is never found except upon the sea. Besides, amber is a hard, transparent, brittle, odorless substance, used ...
Jolys first thought was to use an Earl Grey tea for its tannic, dark flavors and the floral notes of the bergamot, adding a honey syrup to complement the aroma of the ambergris. He chose two spirits: Pierre Ferran 1840, a 90-proof cognac, and Kronan Swedish Punsch, a liqueur recently reintroduced to the U.S. by an importer that specializes in arcane liquors. It contains Batavia arrack-an Indonesian spirit distilled from sugarcane and fermented red rice-rum, sugar, and spices. He also added a bit of nutmeg and a twist of lemon peel to add some brightness to a drink thats warm and very masculine otherwise. Joly called the cocktail Manatee Musk Punsch, both because ambergris was thought to attract mermaids, and because sailors supposedly used to mistake manatees for mermaids. Have you ever seen a manatee? Joly asked. Theyre beautiful, majestic creatures of the open waters, but I dont know if Id want to share a Motel 6 with one, you know what I mean? The aroma of the ambergris and the ...

I have forgotten to say that there were found in this ambergris, certain hard, round, bony plates, which at first Stubb thought might be sailors trowsers buttons; but it afterwards turned out that they were nothing, more than pieces of small squid bones embalmed in that manner.. Now that the incorruption of this most fragrant ambergris should be found in the heart of such decay; is this nothing? Bethink thee of that saying of St. Paul in Corinthians, about corruption and incorruption; how that we are sown in dishonor, but raised in glory. And likewise call to mind that saying of Paracelsus about what it is that maketh the best musk. Also forget not the strange fact that of all things of ill-savor, Cologne-water, in its rudimental manufacturing stages, is the worst.. I should like to conclude the chapter with the above appeal, but cannot, owing to my anxiety to repel a charge often made against whalemen, and which, in the estimation of some already biased minds, might be considered as indirectly ...
This unique speciality ingredient derived from Cistus ladaniferus gum-resin, has been produced by the Synarome company (now part of NACTIS) since 1926, when it was introduced as an alternative to Ambergris Tincture.. Invaluable in many types of fragrance especially amber, incense and chypre types it contains a material similar in odour to that present in ambergris but is much more strongly animalic than the plain labdanum absolute.. Although this is quite an expensive product, its economical in use because very little is needed to get a large effect. It is very rarely used above 1% of the fragrance concentrate.. This is Synaromes usage description: Replaces ambergris tincture. A 1% solution of Ambrarome is equivalent to a 2.5% ambergris tincture. Very widely used as a fixative, this product also contributes to the development of fragrance notes. It can be used at 0.5% - 3% in a compound. 1gr per 40 litres of ethanol gives to ethanol a round note This extract contains the following materials ...
So what is causing all this seaweed to wash up in masses on our beautiful shore? Recent articles have been mentioning that it all has to do with the current changing weather and temperature patterns. It is anticipated that the masses of seaweeds could increase as more tropical storms are predicted for this hurricane season. Scientists say that it is possible that climate change could be indirectly responsible for the increase of this particular weed which is currently affecting many global coastlines.

Mawags; this is a fair question......Its a challenge shopping on any island and Ambergris Caye is no exception.....Consistency, availability & quality are the biggest obstacles......We find that Super Buy South & Mermaids are 2 stores that meet the requirements ......Ive learned enough Spanish to discover some really great cleaning products that are even better than the familiar name brands......And when all else fails a majitel, pinol, & bleach can clean up anything.....It did take me awhile to learn how to use a mop.....Im doing much better now.....With regard to Grills (like charbroilers or bbq?) we finally imported after going through one every 6 months......Good Luck and feel free to send me a note if you have more questions ...

Title: Human Acetylcholinesterase Inhibitors: Electronic-Topological and Neural Network Approaches to the Structure-Activity Relationships Study. VOLUME: 5 ISSUE: 5. Author(s):F. Kandemirli, M. Saraçoglu and V. Kovalishyn. Affiliation:Department of Chemistry, Kocaeli University. Kocaeli, Turkey.. Keywords:human ache inhibitors, electronic topological method, neural network method. Abstract: The Electronic-Topological (ETM) and Neural Network methods were applied to the study of the structure-acetylcholinesterase (AChE) inhibitor activity relationships for a series of physostigmine and Nbenzylpiperidine derivatives. Molecular fragments specific for active compounds and breaks of activity were calculated for human AChE by applying the ETM and Neural Network methods. Requirements necessary for a compound to be active were formulated; they are the result of detailed analysis of all compounds under study. A comparative study of the activity features found for human AChE was performed. ...
There was a time when perfumes were made of plant oils, resins, animal products (such as musk and ambergris), flower petals and spices. When Chanel #5 came out containing an aldehyde--purely not from nature but smelling (in my opinion) like Heaven--things changed. Since then, scent producers learned that synthetic fragrances are a lot cheaper than the real deal---pressing oil from roses takes a ton or work--and modern perfumes are more chemical than anything else. It wouldnt matter--except have you noticed that more people than ever are sensitive to scents ...
In essence, skin scents elevate and enhance the smell of our own skin. The opposite of big, bombastic fragrances, skin scents have very little sillage. Like any perfume, you can find skin scents that lean into fresh, clean notes to evoke freshly clean skin, or they can embrace more animalic, musky notes for a deep, sexy feel. Theres nothing that prevents them from being florals or orientals in the letter of the law, so to speak. The sun tan lotion note for instance is technically a tropical reference, usually married to wild white flowers, yet fragrances sporting it aim to smell like your skin while sunbathing, a Perfume Shrine blog post about skin scents reads. Another quirky category with lots of potential would be mineral, abstract fragrances with a nuance of warm stones, sand, salt notes or ambergris. ...

Spermaceti, obtained primarily from the spermaceti organ, and sperm oil, obtained primarily from the blubber in the body, were much sought after by eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth century whalers. These substances found a variety of commercial applications, such as candles, soap, cosmetics, machine oil, other specialised lubricants, lamp oil, pencils, crayons, leather waterproofing, rust-proofing materials and many pharmaceutical compounds.[202][203][204][205] Ambergris, a solid, waxy, flammable substance produced in the digestive system of sperm whales, was also sought as a fixative in perfumery. Prior to the early eighteenth century, hunting was mostly by indigenous Indonesians.[206] Legend has it that sometime in the early eighteenth century, around 1712, Captain Christopher Hussey, while cruising for right whales near shore, was blown offshore by a northerly wind, where he encountered a sperm whale pod and killed one.[207] Although the story may not be true, sperm whales were indeed ...

Essentially, there is no such thing as an amber essential oil. Essential oils are oils from plants in their purest form, distilled or otherwise extracted from a single plant species. Fragrant amber is a combination of several different botanical sources (or in ambergriss case -which is a completely different material- a product of animal origin, more on which later). There is no one plant from which amber comes from, although some claim it comes from a special tree growing in the Himalayas. This is probably imaginative copy. Fir tree resin, in its regular, non-fossilised form is actually used in perfumery sometimes and offers a rather sweet, warm and deep smell that serves as a base to anchor the other ingredients that are placed on top of this less volatile ingredient. But its not the usual reference ...

Importance Head of the sperm whale contains 3-4 tons of spermaceti, a substance valued as a lubricant for fine machinery and a component of automatic transmission fluid. It is also used in making ointments and fine, smokeless candles (once it solidifies into a white wax upon exposure to air). The sperm whale has also been a target of commercial whaling in years gone by, in areas around the world. The meat of the whale was not generally consumed, except in Japan. Instead, spermaceti was extracted from the head, and the teeth were often used as a medium for the artistic form of engraving and carving known as scrimshaw. The most important product obtained from sperm whales is the oil, once used as fuel for lamps and now used as a lubricant and as the base for skin creams and cosmetics. A gummy substance called ambergris forms in the large intestines of sperm whales and can be found floating on the surface of the water or washed ashore once it is expelled.
