Crazy quick update.. but had to post!! Check out this article, written by Daily Makeover. It’s nuts! To summarize for those who don’t want to read (you know who you are… ;))Whale vomit (otherwise known as ambergris) was a common ingredient in luxury perfumes. It was a rare ingredient which costs a fortune to produce. Now, perfumers have found a cheaper, natural alternative in the likes of a balsam fir gene that can produce the same effect ambergris did for a-lot less. Again.. check out the article… its’ short and makes you wonder what other mysterious ingredients have been lurking in common beauty items.
