Previously, ambergris pieces were sold for between $37,500(RM15,6731) to $42,791 (RM178,844) per kilogram, giving Narong’s ambergris a value of up to $1.25 million (RM5.22 million) based on previous prices.Thai Fisherman Becomes Millionaire Overnight After Finding ‘Whale Vomit’ Worth RM5.2 Million 3Thai Fisherman Becomes Millionaire Overnight After Finding ‘Whale Vomit’ Worth RM5.2 Million 4“None of the villagers has ever seen or touched a real whale ambergris before that’s why everybody was happy,” he said.

Although ambergris produces a foul smell at first, it develops a sweet and long-lasting fragrance once it dries out. This makes it a highly sought-after ingredient in the perfume industry.
