Not exactly amber or vanilla to my nose, but a syrupy & slightly soapy almond. Around 45 minutes in, a deliciously nutty labdanum note makes an appearance, & remains for the duration. As l adore labdanum, this saves the fragrance from being unremarkable, & makes it a very pleasant, if unchallenging, comfort scent to me.
The body cream is worth a mention here; it is more amber-dominant, highly-scented, rich & very luxurious to use.
More amber than vanilla, a very creamy and smooth starring amber slightly characterized by a touch of syrupy and citric cinnamon that turns the smell out as a sort of rice cream body lotion with its touch of neutral laundry feel and moderate mildness. The general atmosphere reminds the hammam habitats.There is something soapy, classic and neutral as a bath foam in the air. I smell also something slightly aromatic or airy as fern of some aromatic herbs. It's very comforting and clean as a cloud full of soap dish bubbles. The final outcome is talky but mysteriously sophisticated. Romantic. Not bad.

I smell Vanilla and Amber, that's all. It's very pleasant, it would be OK at work, and it costs about $33/3.4 oz.
