About amber and ambergris:
Although amber is the name given to one of the most important and popular fragrance families, amber itself (the fossilised resin stone) cannot be used in perfumery. Instead, it's a fantasy accord, combining labdanum, benzoin and vanilla. It's warm and a little powdery, and definitely seductive.
Ambergris on the other hand, is an existing natural ingredient used in perfumery. It's a mythical and expensive ingredient, but basically: it's whale poo. The sperm whales produce it in their digestive system to digest hard objects easier. When lumps are secreted, they float on the ocean and finally end up on a beach or are retrieved by fishermen. After aging, ambergris smells sweet, radiant, animalic and earthy. This floating gold is prized for its fixative qualities. Because it's so rare and expensive, most often synthetic ambergris is used in perfumery.
