Reviews of L'Eau d'Ambre

This is a beautifully balanced and very simple amber - nothing foodie or over spicy, sweet but not at all cloying. It's a perfect scent as opposed to perfume - I mean it doesn't really develop or take you on a journey. There are no surprises, just a comfortable sense of well-being. I couldn't wear it every day as I'd tire of it, but on days when I want a simple comfortable and enveloping haze, this is perfect.

It's light but persistent, and very very calming. A perfect cocooning blanket for 'recuperating' on the sofa. I also find it surprisingly airy at times.

It's alright if you like that sort of thing, and if you do like that sort of thing there are many others that you will probably prefer (see other reviews for suggestions). I love the Amber accord/base, but this is a little too timid for me. After a few minutes on the smelling strip there is apparent a slight milky sweetness which I don't particularly enjoy, but it doesn't last long. I really cannot get excited about this, but don't hate it. I'll wear it when I cannot think of anything else to wear.

This fragrance has been to my first untrained, later a bit more skilled nose THE archetypal amber. Nothing exceeding, here: not too aromatic or fancy the opening, not too sweet and sugary the development, not too dark and animalic the base. A green, spicy geranium on top, a core of vanilla, a nice round patchouli in the base. I can see how people looking for an amber with a bolder, more distinctive character- more animalic, more aromatic, sweeter, spicier..- can find excellent alternatives on the market, but this fragrance remains the perfect one, for me.
It's a scent I associate with end of year festive days, I feel its warmth and composed sweetness as a source of golden, mellow light, so easy and comfortable to wear, yet elegant and subtle.

Genre: Oriental

The mildest mannered amber I've ever sampled. I don't wear amber to be mild mannered. Dries down all nougat and vanilla, without the sexy edge I look for in this kind of fragrance. Pleasant, but hardly interesting

An amber not for cooler weather? Here it is: light, nigh bright, but definitely amber, albeit with a white floral undertone at times. Added is a touch of tonka. Quite original as a concept, albeit not sensationally unique - but as an autumn scent it is well made. Very good silage and protection with eight hours of longevity. 3.25/5

As others have already pointed out, this amber does not have much in common with the more powerful likes of Ambre Sultan, Ambre Russe, etc.. Not nearly as aggressive and flaring, this is a very soft amber, smoothened by abundant, if not overriding, doses of vanilla and tempered by something cooler, which based on the noted listed here I guess is geranium, though to me it almost smells minty at the outset.

A gentle and appeasing interpretation of amber. Not revolutionary, but hey, not everyone's born to be a superstar.
