F. Ambergris is another highly valued ingredient in perfumes. It is made of a sort of fatty hairball coughed up by a sperm whale that then floats upon the surface of the ocean. Over time it darkens to black, and its scent mellows until it becomes what is described as a "soft, suave, dry-mossy, musty and seaweed-like fragrance that is extremely difficult to duplicate with complete fidelity."
