Prada Amber pour Homme fragrance notes

Reviews of Prada Amber pour Homme

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

Clean and pleasant to the nose from the first splash. And quite modern and unique I would say too. Can't really compare it to any other fragrances.

And what I read in the reviews is true. It smells like luxurious shower gel.

Soap in a bottle!

Now, there's nothing wrong with soap. It washes away dirt, it keeps you clean. It's great. So Prada here under the direction of Daniela Andrier on the theme of Amber, an imaginary accord composed of Vanilla, Benzoin and Labdanum. I get all of these in different variations. I also get neroli and orange blossom (used quite a lot in soap) as well as geranium, an ingredient used in men's soaps of the past. This is also combined with myrrh and patchouli, sandalwood, coumarin, and hints of cardamom.

Overall, it's a great achievement. Even though I identify it as "soapy", it is is an incredibly high and good quality. It's worth the money. Because it's a long lasting fragrance that develops from a clean burst of elegant, expensive soap, into a wonderful second skin scent. I cannot recommend it enough just for this fact alone. Great longevity and above all, elegant. For the price it can't be beaten for freshness, cleanliness and elegance. It may be soap in a bottle, but it's probably the best soap you've ever had.

According to the blurb, Amber pour Homme was created in four blocks: amber, fougère, leather and cologne. Not only does this strike me as willfully complex but it verges on the perverse.

Amber and fougère; alright, I admit this can work (Pour Monsieur de Pierre Cardin pulls this off in its own rather threadbare fashion), but leather as well? ... and cologne? Thats just going too far.

This 4-square, everything-but-the-kitchen-sink structure seems to be the triumph of somebody's ideal over conventional perfumery wisdom. Anybody who has dabbled with oils will know that, after a certain point, the more you add to a blend the less definition you get until you end up with a brown smelling mess. This isn't quite on that scale because there was a nose at the helm, but the principle is the same; more is less.
