What is Ambergris?
Ambergris, which comes from specific sperm whale species, is one of perfumery's most expensive raw ingredients. It's uncommon, and the fragrance it emits is even more so. Ambergris is used as a fixer in fragrances, and its scent is characterized as sea, animal, and sweet. Triterpene alcohol, ambrein, the major active agent, as well as epicoprostanol and coprostanone, are the three main chemical components extracted from ambergris.
