Is amyl nitrite safe?

Poppers are a liquid drug that can give an instant high when inhaled. Other names for it are amyl nitrate, butyl nitrite, and liquid gold. The effects of poppers appear quickly and include dizziness, warm sensations, an increased heart rate, and headaches.

Poppers are sometimes marketed as room deodorizers or leather cleaners, although people rarely use them for these purposes.
