Hey, so I'm relatively new to poppers and I'm a bit concerned. I bought a brand of poppers from a local sex shop, the brand is Amsterdam Black Label, New Formula (with Pac West Distributing on the side of label, no indication of what it is besides "Liquid Incense" on front). The cap is steel and flat, with ridges, but the overall shape of bottle is like any other.

It hits hard and quick. I go red and hot following the rush. No thumping arteries unless I hit hard. I'm only used to isobutyl, specifically Iron Horse. This one doesn't have much of an alcohol or acidic smell, more slightly chemical-sweet. It does, however, give off a smoky, bitter release when exhaling (which I find odd).

Afterwards I get a slight headache/nausea, but no tremors or anything too alarming. Most other pops I use do the same, if not more. I'm just curious what this is before I continue to use. I've heard of Chinese fakes being a thing...

I should note that I mention a steel cap, but I'm not certain. It is matte and makes a "metallic" sound when hit. Most other brands have a shiny cap with a bubble-like appearance (at least that is what I'm used to).

Hard to say what it is. No popper should smell acidic and they all are sweet smelling if they are fairly pure. So you have to know the slight differences in odor. N-butyl nitrite is definitely sweeter smelling than isobutyl or amyl. It's more like a sweet rum, with no bitter undertones. Isobutyl is more like a sweet chemical similar to nail polish compounds....not something you'd want to drink or eat. When it degrades to the alcohol, it's more bitter smelling. Amyl is much more subtle in sweetness and less volatile, so less likely to hear gas escaping. Sometimes amyl has a slight medicinal odor.

I have smelled n-butyl nitrite with a very sweet banana scent. It leaves a room smelling like a locker room as well...not a banana.

Thanks @Nitritespecialist for your reply.

When I said that I'm only used to Isobutyl, I meant ISO in general. Kinda scary not knowing what I'm using (besides the subtle smell difference). This one smells like a sweet-chemical blend. I'm almost certain it is a strong or old Isobutyl. The strangest part is the release. After taking a hit, a smoky and bitter exhalation is noticeable. I'm just not used to that lol.

Did some small hits again and experienced stomach cramping, headache and weakness (nausea). Yeah, fake or not, this is going in the trash.
