History of amber, not always grey!
Tracing the history of amber is tricky! In the 9th century, in present-day Iraq, an emeritus doctor classified the great perfuming olfactory aromas, including amber. The word appeared in Europe in the 11th century, but it is difficult to specify whether it is the crystallized resin of trees or ambergris and its particular perfume. The perfumes, whose notes are amber, originate from ambergris, the only one used in perfumery.
In the Middle East, amber is attributed aphrodisiac virtues, whereas for a long time Western countries did not know ambergris, but only yellow amber used to make jewelry.
Having become relatively expensive, amber is then replaced by synthetic amber. Its origin comes from the stomach excrement of the humpback whale. The latter evacuates the ambergris, which dries and forms a kind of gray paste. The smell that emerges is reminiscent of the ocean and the salt of the water, resembling a marine musk and camphor.
Fresh, ambergris offers an unpleasant olfactory sensation. It is only after drying and exposure to the sun, after months, even several years, that ambergris reveals its particular scent of tobacco, an earthy, wild and marine smell. Today very easily reproducible synthetically, harvesting at sea has almost disappeared.
