Reviews of Ambre Précieux

Do not expect a powerful amber. This great work of delicacy explores its sweetest (precious) facet. Although it is not my favorite, its complexity, the refinement (that is the word) of this baroque perfume makes it a worthy possibility for an elegant and extroverted appearance.
The usually edible character of amber is surrounded here by light pink, green and blue tones. Mellow, of a feminine orientality. Very beautiful.

Very nice scent, don't need much to create that 12" scent envelope. Honest amber/woods/vanilla palate that doesn't take itself too seriously. A friendly scent, excellent for spring and summer.

This is much more ambery on me than the Ambre Dore, which I tried recently. The lavender and nutmeg are right there at the opening, along with a slightly dusty, woody note. This seems more unisex that the Ambre Dore – it’s a bit spicier, but still a lovely, warm amber scent. I like it, but alas, it seems that this is another scent that my skin eats – it seemed to disappear after only a few hours. Beautiful while it lasted though.

Ambre Precieux is an honest, solid amber composition that is a good representation of this genre. It opens up on the skin with a brisk lavender note. This initial phase is great- deep and vaguely spicy. This phase shortly ends as the amber note develops and asserts itself. It is not spicy, but rather balsamic- perhaps due to the myrrh. The vanilla hovers in the background but never becomes too much of a distraction. There is not much further development- only the amber-myrrh-vanilla combination becomes a warm, cosy, enveloping and intimate. The great thing about this fragrance is its perfect balance of sweetness. My only gripe is it is a little unexciting from the heart onwards.
Average projection, good longevity.

Genre: Oriental

Ambre Précieux is probably the most balanced amber scent I know. Sweet spices, soft woods, and a judicious touch of vanilla make a scent that’s sweet and sensuous, but not syrupy. This is richer, deeper, and sexier than Ambre Extreme or Montale’s Blue Amber, but less sharp and aggressive than Ambre Sultan. It also lacks the latter scent’s peculiar, jarring top notes. Ambre Précieux is warm, luxurious and satisfying, at once individual but inoffensive, and it’s easy to see why it’s so many reviewers’ favorite amber fragrance.

Somptuos, decadent, perfectly-executed sweet and warm amber fragrance. To me there's three scents on the market that compose the perfect "Amber Triad": Ambre Sultan, which enhances the animalic, medicinal, earthy and dry side of the amber accord; Ambre Russe, which plays with its baroque, boozy and libertine side; and Ambre Precieux, which just takes the classic signature warm coziness of amber and glorifies that majestic, silky powdery sweetness that other fragrances tend to hold back. Another timeless piece from MPeG - just like Santal Noble for sandalwood.
