Brown Ambergris collected within the Bahamas.

Brown is the second best grade ambergris and is coveted for a stronger scent than white. For these purposes it is best used for its scent on its own rather than for use as a fixative.

The word Ambergris originates from an Old Arabic word 'anbar', having been introduced to the west by the Arabs, it has since played a key role in perfumery across the world both traditional and contemporary.

The early Muslims highly regarded Ambergris from the Coasts of India, with Yemeni Ambergris also highly coveted from Al-Shihr.

The polymath historian Al Masudi lists Ambergris as one of the five principal aromatics (usul al-tib), and it plays a central role in the creation of the renowned and historical fragrant compound - Ghaliyah.
