After a long period of development, we are pleased to offer Dhen al Ambergris White 'Crude' Semi-Solid, pure authentic ambergris oil.

The White 'Crude' oil, brought out from beach found white fossilized ambergris rocks, is unrefined and charming with its sublime genuine oceanic scent, yet highly complex in maturity and sophistication. Its unique character makes it highly rare on today's market - there is truly none like it. In room temperature, this ambergris may settle in a semi-solid state, but when slightly warmed it will rub into the skin easily.

The Dhen al Ambergris White 'Crude' Semi-Solid will include a complimentary vial of Rose oil to layer with for a more agreeable odor. The rose scent lessens the fecality of ambergris and atinuates it to a most pleasing level without altering its core essence. This was done in the ancient world with animal scents, as the complementing floral note would not alter the character of musk but act as a buffer. The core essence of ambergris is similar to that of musk. Against popular thought, all ambergris is not the same, it encompasses many varying scents - each rock will tell its own scented story.


Ancient Treasures of Ireland

Since ancient times Ambergris has been collected and traded worldwide as a highly valuable and useful commodity - a powerful medicinal aid, prized perfume fixative and a incomparable gourmet ingredient in fine cousine. Expelled ambergris are sometimes buried on sheltered beaches of undiscovered lands for ages, after spending decades floating on the ocean waters. These ancient treasures are found worldwide by fishermen, beach combers and ambergris hunters, not only on the Indian Ocean beaches, along the Pacific Ocean shore lines or along the African East coast. From the Atlantic seabed surface mature rocks of fine ambergris, mainly found along the South American shoreline and South African coast. A mostly unknown source of ancient ambergris comes from the shielded beaches of Ireland, where it has been commonly collected and traded for ages, but not officially recorded.

Due to glacation over the Millenia, some stony beaches on the Irish coast are set in many levels, and ambergris are at times embedded in inaccessible crevices after substantially strong storms. “The Night of the Big Wind” (Oíche na Gaoithe Móire), which occurred on January 6th, 1839, was the heaviest storm that hit Ireland in 300 years, causing extensive flooding when the storm surge drew an enormous amount of sea water inland. It is popularly believed that this legendary storm may have caused not only the recorded massive damage to the lands and unfortunate lives lost during the night, also propelled invaluable pieces of ambergris to be trapped at high grounds in unreachable places.

“The piece was so high up the gallery that it must have taken a phenomenal storm or a Tsunami to get it to where it was” says long time ambergris trader and expert Mr. Lillis of Clare, Ireland, about an extraordinary maturely aged find. The ambergris pieces are sometimes as unique as the location they emerge from; “I will forever be amused by how a white piece can smell very animalic and a jet black piece can smell very highly perfumistic, in fact two black pieces have been exceptional… Generally we store the anbar graded by scent, with the colours often secondary. I often burn a little bit to get the concentrated scent which I really love.”


Fascinating indeed are the possibilities in regards to the individual pieces of anbar. Each piece has a story to tell, and will most likely be best understood by those whom recall the past, and can relate it in the present.
