Ambre Sultan fragrance notes

Reviews of Ambre Sultan

Amber is a popular note in many perfumes; generally speaking its sweetness can be a bit too much for me. I kept looking for an amber-based fragrance that came with an "edge," something that would temper the syrupy notes that strike me as overwhelmingly one-dimensional. Ambre Sultan accomplishes this via top notes that are bracingly herbal but surprisingly complementary. During the drydown this maintains a perfect balance, even as the herbal notes recede and a vanilla base emerges. To my nose this skews heavily masculine, but what do I know. For me, this is a nearly addictive fragrance and, given the changes brewing chez M. Lutens, I have secured my own personal lifetime supply. That's how much I adore -- and expect to continue adoring -- this perfume. An unqualified success, even in batches from 2016, which is what I've got.

A nice Amber fragrance with some vanilla in it. A bit dirtier than most Ambers.

A reference masculine Amber. Enough said.

Perfect resinous amber, not the light powdery stuff that is in so many women's perfumes. I get a few nice woody notes, pine and cedar mixed in there, but the amber is still the star. A sweet vanilla comes in during the drydown an this must be what is making everyone say it's so feminine.

Dry, sweet, smoky, utterly evocative. Somewhat Guerlain-like in style. A must-try. (I feel bad writing so little - must mull this over more...).
