  • Product # 1434
  • Part Distilled seed
  • Origin India

The seeds of Abelmoschus moschatus have an odour somewhat between musk and amber, and are employed as a substitute for animal musk. Its generic name is derived from the Arabic hub-ool-moosk. The plant is now cultivated in Martinique, whence the seed is largely exported to France, where it is employed by perfumers in the preparation of pomatums, powders, and perfumes; by them it is called Ambrette and Graine d'Ambrette. Under the name of musk-seed, parcels are occasionally imported and sold at the drug sales in London, being worth about 4s. per pound. In Egypt and Arabia the natives bruise this seed, and, mixing it with their coffee, regard it as a cordial and stomachic.
