The scientific name of Ambergris attar is Pinus Succinifera and it is a kind of excretion from the whales. It floats on the oceans and is collected from the beaches where it appears as rough and filthy blocks. Ambergis is secreted by the sperm whale and the freshly released Ambergis has a soft consistency and an unpleasant smell. Though it has a dark black color when it is excreted, but the sea water and atmosphere transform its color to a silver-gray to golden yellow. Finally it turns white in color with a sweet and pleasant aroma.
Floating ambergris is collected in different parts of the world such as Australia, Madagascar, Sri Lanka, Maldives etc.
The Muslim traveler Ibn Btutah has mentioned in his travelogue that the people from Central Asia used it commonly.
