Ambergris is rarely used in it's natural form in today's fragrances. It is found in older scents with the older formulation. It is very expensive thus the synthetic (lab) form is used about 98% of the time. I know of a few natural perfumers that still use it, but it is a rare thing.
Thus, I seriously doubt that Daisy contains the real thing or even the lab version. More than likely the musk is "white musk" a type of chemical that provides a woodsy and fresh drydown after a half hour or so.

"Ambergris, a secretion of the sp3rm whale intestine, is regarded as a marine mammal product by the U.S. Department of Commerce. Possession of it is prohibited by the Endangered Species Act of 1973, which includes the sp3rm whale, declared an endangered species on June 2, 1970. The Act states that it is unlawful to possess, sell, deliver, carry, transport, or ship by any means whatsoever any parts or products of an endangered species taken within the United States. This means that, although ambergris is valuable as a fixative in the manufacture of fine perfumes, perfumers in the United States are not allowed
to buy or sell it or perfumes containing it. They now use a synthetic substitute."
Based on that, I would say NO! Also, ambergris is supposedly extremely expensive where it is still legal to sell. Any perfume containing it would most likely be quite pricey!
