Black is the lowest grade of ambergris and is commonly used in perfumery. This batch has light and fecal aroma.

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.
