    I'm not a fan o this one, I find it very obvious and boring. Ellena was too literal on his reference, I would expect something a bit more intriguing from him... Maybe he could have explored the dirty and salty aspect of amber to compensate the cinnamon and the apple note. I really dont get why people get so excited over this.

    I think it may be the best sweet scent ever made. Incredible. Smells like apple pie, but damn this is just addictive. Sometimes it makes me hungry, as it transcends the perfume realm.

    We can't deny that this gourmand amber from the luxury collection Hermessence is delicious and "baroquely decadent" (namely not just agreeable in a linear way but also well structured and multifaceted) at once. The buttery amber/benzoin features an olfactory twist of honey (beeswax), sugary almondy molasse, rum, bergamot, fruits (apple/peaches jam), and incense (a touch of tobacco or tonka? Or may be eliotrope?) that is rich and full of texture. Yes the juice is "food" but not just that, it's also old castles, heralds, chandeliers and tapestries. The role of the spices is a starring, expecially nutmeg and cinnamon, some labdanum (also galbanum?) provides some viscousity while some ginger imprints a cool fruity aroma that marks with fresh stripes the middle of a rich warmth. A golden elixir and another example of noir lusty decadence.

    Mmm, this fragrance is simply amazing. It opens up with a sugary sweet blast of honey and cinnamon(which stay all the way to the drydown) which is very pleasing, gourmand lovers will really like this. As the fragrance matures, you start smelling more amber(I think the amber in this one smells like rum+raisins and it has kind of a gummy feel to it, very pleasant), and you also get some sweetened tobacco, along with some other dessert spices. This one isn't easy to label, as it starts as a gourmand, and ends as an oriental

    This isn't an overly complex cologne, but it's the best blended one I've ever had the pleasure of smelling. It is thick and the longevity, projection, sillage are superb, but it has a quality transparency to it where it doesn't become cloying. This is the best comfort cologne in my opinion. It's also very sensual and evokes feelings of sitting in my comfortable blanket, eating an apple pie in the middle of a frigid, Canadian winter.

    You might think that it sounds silly to pay $235+ to 'smell like an apple pie', but it really does feel like an otherworldly experience to me, and is worth every penny. 10/10 scent, a masterpiece.

    Tried liking this so many times, but it's sweetness is such a negative point that it overwhelms any of the good aspects. Very dense and rich. Smells a lot like an apple pie which is the big selling point. Problem is that I don't want to smelll like an apple pie. Very feminine and I would actually love this on a woman. Hermes needs to come out with a bacon fragrance for men which would be the perfect companion to Ambre Narguile.
