Reviews of Amber Absolute

Went for a Tom Ford fragrance marathon in Paris last August and snagged a 50 ml of this. Pricey. Why didn't I get two or find the 100 ml.
Excellent all the way around and probably my fave TF over the Tuscan Leather and the Noir Extreme, although I haven't secured the TV, opting for the Eau des Baux instead.
Almost gone and lamenting.

I went to a cocktail party wearing six (!) sprays of Amber Absolute... Everybody (men and women) seemed to want to talk to me.

Huge Tom Ford frag fan in general. The re-release of AA in 2015 has made for an absolutely outrageous scent. This is sex in a bottle. It's the perfect scent for covering up dirty deeds and makes you smell very, very expensive.

I have been experimenting with ambers recently; I usually find them too cloying. This frag, however, is: long lasting, exotic, complex, and sensual. It is also mature without smelling old; in other words, this is pretty sophisticated for a youngish person to successfully pull off. I can imagine it smelling fantastic on a man as well. One of the few frags I have put on that my BF has commented on... he couldn't keep his nose away from my neck the first time I wore it.

This is powerful stuff and you should be careful where you wear it. A NSFW scent, I think. A little goes a long way. Immaculate!

Reminds me slightly of Ambre Nuit or Mitzah but slightly sweeter. Nice fragrance IMO. I see why this one gets a lot of hype. Wish I would have sprayed more on my arm. A nice light incense is in here as well as a nice dose of vanilla in the drydown. 8/10

Now that I own a full bottle, I've also noticed that AA smells a lot like Ambre Sultan. Very identical.

This one holds a special place in my heart, it's the first ever private blend that I purchased back in 2008 when the line debuted. I read an article in some magazine talking about how amazing it was; the author said this one and Tobacco Vanile were his favorite; I decided on AA to be the first purchase and planned on buying TV later on.
When I first got it, I opened the box and sprayed it on a tissue, and smelled...and I immediately gasped...I thought it smelled absolutely awful. I was very disappointed in myself for blind buying it, and I was basically pissed off at the world at that point, especially at the guy who wrote the article :P I put the tissue down and forgot about it, and I left the room. Came back about ~45 minutes later and something caught my was a very faint vanilla incense that blew me was the tissue I had sprayed earlier! I sprayed some on my hand and again hated the opening, but after awhile it really started to smell magnificent. Eventually I learned to appreciate the opening and the entirety of the absolute masterpiece.
Boggles my mind why this one got discontinued. It's one of the highest rated private blends on this site and other fragrance based websites, there are tons of threads on it and multiple youtube videos and magazine articles...I doubt they'll ever bring it back, but one can hope...
