Prada Amber pour Homme fragrance notes

Reviews of Prada Amber pour Homme

I felt pressured when I originally bought it and wasn't a big fan. Now, 6 years later, my taste has changed and I love it. Prada seems to always give Guerlain a run for its money when it comes to masculine powder scents.

As many others have mentioned, this one is packed full of soap and powder. It really smells like a bar of soap found in a hotel.

Longevity is great and the scent is completely linear. If you like it after the first spray, you'll be satisfied 8 hours later as well.

No idea why this is called Amber

There is no Amber note in it, also you can replace every single note in the pyramid with soap .

This is a nice soapy scent and probably the nicest soapy scent I have sampled after infusion d iris by Prada .

A few people I work with have said it smells like an old lady though lol.

This is a nice one for when you don't want to offend and just want to smell clean and fresh , very nice but very boring.

Lasts a long time and has the right projection for this scent, moderate to good.

YouTube reviewers like to call this "soap in a bottle". More precisely, this is nice shampoo in a bottle. I say that because it smells polished, sterilised, filtered, a bit sharp under its muskiness. And once you move beyond the opening notes there really are no notes that have a substantial link to naturals.

It opens with one of the great designer openings - an impressive burst of clean cardamom, neroli and low-key citruses that are nondescript, zestless and candied. There's no doubt this opening is designed to instantly seal the deal at the counter.

The drydown is a clean, somewhat powdery musk overlayed with a masculine floral combination that smells like a perfumer's pre-mix. There's tenuous links to geranium, jasmine, orange blossom, lavender, accented by a hint of an aromachemical which I guess is meant to be the saffron. But really it's just all a big blob of clean, shampoo-ey pleasantness.

As for the other listed notes, patchouli, Vetiver, suede, tonka bean, vanilla - I don't smell them. Certainly not in the way they are effortlessly presented in some of the finer works in perfumery. As for Amber, this would have to be one of the most misleadingly named fragrances ever. Apparently the bottles were labelled well before the perfumer was done with their edits.

A neutral rating because the opening is well worth experiencing, and because it's competing against a lot of rubbish in this price segment. But the drydown is a little grating in the long term if you are the type who pays attention.

Really nicely crafted fragrance from Prada.

Amber pour Homme has a classy, relaxing and warm feel to it, thanks to the wonderful notes of tonka, patchouli, orange blossom, saffron, suede, and cardamom. Neroli and vetiver liven things up in the base, and overall ApH just strikes me as smooth and so wearable on most occasions and weather conditions of the year.

Smells like expensive soap or baby powder. That's the best I can describe it.

Very nice fragrance. Still trying to figure how/when to wear it or if it's for me.

Thumbs up for now.

Tested Prada Amber Pour Homme in Macy's and fell in love. Prada Amber Pour Homme smells like high-quality soap and is a charming scent. May lean just a tad feminine for the first few minutes, but no question Prada Amber is a man's fragrance. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a clean, fresh scent guaranteed not to offend even the most discriminating nose.

Lastly, Amber Pour Homme is its own fragrance and well deserving of a place in any serious fragrance collection. I would not hesitate to add Prada Amber Pour Homme to any collection that already includes Prada Infusion d'Homme and Mugler Cologne, two other great soapy fragrances.

Smell 10/10
Projection 6/10
Longevity 8/10
