more than $1.5 million worth of rare and valuable ambergris, BBC News reported on Tuesday.Ambergris is a strange, waxy substance with an almost rock-like appearance—sometimes referred to as "whale vomit"—that is produced in the intestines of sperm whales.

Used by top end perfume makers. That $200 bottle of Chanel you bought for your wife - yep, it has whale vomit in it.

Skunk oil is a lesser alternative but also used in high end perfumes.
