Amber Absolute fragrance notes

Reviews of Amber Absolute

I mainly get amber and incense. Very seductive and nuclear projection, longevity & sillage. Not my style as i'm not a massive amber fan but masterfully blended and surely one of the best amber fragrances ever made!!?

Just got my bottle of Amber Absolute, and here's my experience with it...

Starts out boozy, but not overwhelmingly so. There is a resemblance to a glass of Sambuca, strong with licorice note. The alcohol subsides within a minute, and the African incense plus amber accord really stick out.

Patchouli also becomes quite evident, brighter than what I'd usually experience with other colognes. Labdanum and sandalwood are subtly intertwined about the former notes, and what I get minutes from spray-on is a very pleasant, powdery high-quality amber that is just AWESOME.

It doesn't smell multi-layered in the end: It is a composite construction, putting forth a smooth, spicy and sweet vibe that leans towards an oriental family of fragrance. It just feels great, and it gets compliments every time I wear it.

Amber Absolute is a masterpiece that is addictive and appealing, worthy of being in any serious collector's arsenal.

This smells pretty darn amazing. I can't detect individual notes too much but it basically smells of a very oriental amber with frankincense and vanilla, with Middle Eastern vibes and a touch of smoke. It smells very gourmand and has the aroma of a very high-end luxury chocolate dipped in some sort of Middle Eastern sweet. It's very mysterious and dark yet sweet but in an edible way. It kind of reminds me of the idea of standing in a Middle Eastern spice market but beside someone smoking hookah and selling exotic sweets. I also detect something that smells like very authentic and realistic cedarwood (not the synthetic kind). Sillage is beastmode while longevity is also beastmode.

5/5

A pleasure for your nose and for the lucky people around you, Amber Absolute smells sweet, delicious, woody, sensual and when i say sensual i mean in fact aphrodisiac.

Maybe the most complimented scent from TF.

A wonderfully dark, spicy, woody and resinous smoky amber Oriental fragrance that is a complete pleasure to smell.

Very comfortable for wearing in any situation and is best worn during Spring, Autumn and Winter.

If you can find it, buy it.

10/10


Food for Thought:
I would like to add that member landshark321 generally gives fragrances a 7/10 and the ones he/she enjoys an 8/10. It really says something seeing that 10/10 score for Amber Absolute.

Tom Ford Amber Absolute perhaps is as known as much for its power as it is for its quality, falling into the group of Private Blend fragrances (like Tobacco Vanille and Noir de Noir) that are regarded as extremely powerful for EDPs.

The note breakdown is relatively simple and straightforward: amber, incense, vanilla, labdanum, and woody notes. Overwhelming, the amber, vanilla, and incense dominate the experience of the fragrance. In essence, it's a pure expression of amber mixed with the sweeter vanilla and the spicier/floral elements as well.

I compared Amber Absolute to a few other amber fragrances (Tauerville Amber Flash, By Kilian Amber Oud, Le Labo Benjoin 19), and what's obvious about Amber Absolute is that it's perhaps the sweetest amber-dominant fragrances I've ever tried (while still being spicy and smoky due to the incense).

I have a 30ml decant but intend to buy a full bottle as the 2015 release is a limited edition, still, to my knowledge, available only at Neiman Marcus / Bergdorf Goodman in the US, and it's not difficult to imagine that it'll be discontinued again as the 2007 was.

Again, one of the great performers of all time and certainly of the TFPB, and a must-try for amber lovers and lovers of sweet gourmand winter fragrances alike. Superb.
