(fr. ambre) AMBRA - waxy, gray-brown secretion of the digestive tract of a sperm whale. It is excreted in the form of a shameless lump, which is then crushed and diluted. The formed suspension is thus shaken in special machines for several months. Only after this time the created substance may be used in the manufacture of perfumes. Ambra is a valuable resource because it is used only in the compositions of the highest quality fragrances. Its aroma resembles a sharp smell of horse sweat mixed with seafood. It is an excellent fixative of odors.
