Or was it ambergris?


It's what's been accumulating in the sperm whale's stomachs whose staple diets are giant squids that no one has ever seen before. When a sperm whale eats a giant squid, the beak which is indigestible accumulates and over time turns to embergris.

And guess what?

This enbergris is used as a fixative in perfurmes. So, next time you spray our Channe1 Number 5, or Eternity M0ment, or take a whiff from your man's chest of Dunhill, remember that one of the must-have ingredients are giant squid's beaks!
