Room odorisers and often referred to as poppers. Poppers is the term for the group of chemicals known as alkyl nitrates that include amyl nitrite, butyl nitrite and isobutyl nitrite. They come as a clear or straw-coloured liquid in a small bottle or tube. The vapour is inhaled through the mouth or nose.
The use of poppers is often found within the dance and club culture. They used to come in glass capsules which made a popping noise when opened - hence the name 'poppers'.
Amyl nitrate is stronger than butyl nitrate. In the UK, butyl is used more than amyl. They were initially prescribed as medication for the heart. Today, they are rarely prescribed for this purpose.
Effects are instantaneous and brief, but intense. These effects are caused by a sudden surge of blood to the heart and brain;
Light-headedness, giddiness, heat flush or heightened sensual awareness may also result. This is known as a 'head rush';
Some users may also experience the impression of time slowing down;
The effects fade two to five minutes after use;
Users are often left with a headache.
