Authentic White/Grey Ambergris
White Grey Ambergris
White/Grey ambergris represents the zenith in ambergris quality. A product of nature's serendipity, ambergris is an exquisite rarity. Born from the depths of the ocean within sperm whales, it embarks on a prolonged odyssey, drifting across the seas for years, sometimes decades. Exposed to the relentless sun and unforgiving elements, its character is sculpted, refined, and transformed.
Recovered from shores after its long maritime journey, it often emerges after tumultuous storms and erratic weather, like a treasured gift from the sea. So rare is ambergris that it rivals gold in its exclusivity. Its elusive nature has given rise to countless imitations. To those unfamiliar, any mysterious substance washed ashore might appear identical, leading many to be deceived.
Beware of the plethora of "ambergris" temptingly priced online; many are mere counterfeits. Opportunists, upon discovering ambiguous beach remnants, often misrepresent substances like palm oil fats or random waxes as genuine ambergris.

The origin of the word ambergris
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.
