Yeah, yeah I know! but I just listening to Suede...a track called Animal Nitrate... The title "perfectly summed up what it was like to be young and chemically imbalanced in the nationís capital at the time" That would be early 1990s. As I say I know it is amyl nitrite, so what is the deal with amyl nitrate then?

Amyl nitrate is the word that everyone uses to describe amyl nitrite. So I guess it is basically slang, a street word if you like. In the 1980s before the arrival of the internet and the wonders of wiki :-) it was ALWAYS called amyl nitrate, or just plain amyl actually. Now that we have a world of key punchers sharing their "knowledge" we must conclude that the product is actually amyl nitrite. That does not devalue the term though, as it is 80s subculture vernacular. You can sometimes see folks get their knickers in a twist about it on forums. NO NO! its nitrite. To understand these folks take a good look at Simon Quinlank......enjoy :-)

Ooo Ah! I didn't know that. I see that it (the nitrate one) is used in some kind of fuel process. OK, well I remember once that there was a brand called jungle drops and that was amyl nitrate. It isn't poppers or what?

Jungle Juice?

Jungle Juice is amyl nitrite (or it was) I still have an old empty botlle chucked up a corner in the storage room. It says Room Deodorizer and on the back AN. It is made in Canada.

Simon Quinlank....haha! that guy who plays him has a new show of his own :-) What would the "Duke of Hobby" have to say about poppers??

KeithBI said on Fri, 22 Mar 2013 at 16:36...

Jungle Juice is now called a leather cleaner and there is one called a "Nail Polish Remover"? Which is the one with amyl nitrate?

Torres said on Sat, 23 Mar 2013 at 08:14...

So where do you find amyl nitrate poppers for sale?

Batty said on Tue, 26 Mar 2013 at 17:06...

Get some real Jungle Juice as ya'all say - or Rochefort - from Europe.

I have used real amyl nitrate for a long time and it is the very best. I noticed that they did change the label to amyl nitrite and then again it changed to something like iso ??? anyway, even though it was once a room deodorizer, then a leather cleaner and the other things change it seems to be the same to me. on a miss/sub forum I know they say that Jungle Juice has changed, but i guess it depends where you buy it. I think that amyl is not the STRONGEST in that wham!! boom!! way, but it lasts longer and intensifies play like a good poppers should

if it has a weird mellow fruity bouquet like a load of tropical fruits then it is AMYL NITRITE. Anything calling itself nail polish remover is isobutyl

Jordan Patrick said on Wed, 8 May 2013 at 07:41...

isobutyl is much easier to manufacture than amyl and I think it is a lot cheaper to make as well! that is why real AN is like a needle in a haystack..really difficult to find. the other problem with it is that it degrades very quickly. the original poppers were not called Jungle Juice, they had completely different names....I can try to remember what they were called :-) but they are discontinued. Some JJ is now isopentyl nitrite which is a name dance product but it is the best one out there. Actually you used to be able to buy amyl in Johannesburg which was made locally, I do not know if it is still made though. I can ask my buddy in SA as I am sure the store still exists.

>the original poppers were not called

You know I think that all those labels like Thrust and such came AFTER they started using isobutyl. Might be wrong, but my guess is that there were little or no labels back in the day. Those glass mesh pods of amyl are known as vitrellae - did they have a brand label? They certainly had a paper wrapper, so I guess they could.

Cougar said on Mon, 27 May 2013 at 18:44...

They were certainly selling amyl in the early 1980s as it was advertised in NYc as the original and better than the west coast.

Here is an historic advert from 1983:

The real thing amyl nitrate

KOLLER NORTH AMERICA...Box of 12 crushable capsules. Safer and more effective than butyl

1 Box $20.95
4 Boxes $ 76.00
8 Boxes $ 144.00

and from the old days:

On one of the old tins it says "Glaseptic Ampoules No 50 Amyl Nitrite. Directions: Crush an ampoule by bending between the fingers so that the contents will be absorbed by the cloth cover. Apply to the nostrils and inhale. Do nor remove the cloth wrapping. Keep in a cool place"

Parke, Davis & Co Detroit. Michigan. USA.

those are amyl snappers. Those little glass phials and the snap were all part of the experience. like the sound triggers the pleasure..cool. some stores in philly had them a few years back with a different chemical

Koller North America never sold any nitrate. Period. Never had any amyl but I heard it doesn't burn like the junk in the stores now??

Denzil Dexter said on Thu, 27 Jun 2013 at 06:37...

Amyl has no burning sensation, that is some other formula and there are a whole bunch of those. It would be cycohexyl mix that you mean, or isopropyl nitrite

DocMs said on Sun, 18 Aug 2013 at 13:40...

Jubilee is a film by Derek Jarman (late 70s) horrible arty mess, but it features a character called Amyl Nitrate (would have been funny as Amy L. but Jarman aint no barrel of laughs) Figures that the term is used to mean poppers even when it isn't..

Anonymous said on Sun, 1 Sep 2013 at 13:27...

What was commonly known as amyl nitrate actually amyl nitrite was
really a mix of isomers (with mostly iso-amyl) Those isomers are going to be in differing %s and that is quite normal as it is just a by -product of the process.

What is the strongest popper using isobutyl

Tisza said on Sun, 12 Jan 2014 at 14:56...

planetmars said on Sun, 23 Mar 2014 at 00:52...

Could anyone tell me where can I find the REAL stuff (amyl)???
Gimme some websites or something...

Skeet said on Thu, 27 Mar 2014 at 11:21...

@Planetmars, thestreets.com or their lesser known partner site,thefriscohood.com

Randy said on Sat, 29 Mar 2014 at 13:04...

Cam the so called Upper poppers be purchased in Upper New York State. I am from across the border in Canada, and they have been banned here since mid last year.

Thanks
