Many expensive perfumes contain sperm whale feces known as 'Ambergris'.

Some sperm whales produce ambergris — a clump of squid beaks and fatty secretions that scientists believe exits through the whales' bowels. Some high-endperfumes use ambergris for a chemical it contains called ambrien, which suspends smells in the air, and for its own unique scent.
