Perfumers are ready to buy at a premium price this waxy substance secreted by the digestive system of cetaceans and vomited into the water by them. The Yemenis have received a proposal of more than 1.2 million euros for their discovery.

The product is highly sought after by perfume professionals, who are willing to pay more for it than gold to be able to use it in their creations.
