Purchased from an online discounter for less than $30. Very elegant and masculine fragrance. The opening reminds me of a spiced honey or spiced tea with hints of apple. It has a certain sweetness to it that is very warming and relaxing. Violet, leather and whiskey in the dry down is a nice transition from the opening. I also detect a vanilla that isn't listed, but is underneath the violet.
I would wear this in fall and winter or on a rainy spring day. Appropriate for office as projection isn't big and longevity is average. Great deal for a unique fragrance.
Ambre is so easy to wear and it smells nice every time. A fruity apple opening moves into a sweet, mildly spicy heart with tones of vanilla and amber. I never have to think when I put this on--I know the people around me will enjoy it and I won't be choking out the room. Projection is good, but it's not nuclear. It radiates as a soft glow for about half a meter and leaves a decent scent trail. There've been some complaints that it's a little flat at times, and I'm not going to argue with that, but your audience will not perceive it that way as it leaves a very nice impression, and depending on your skin chemistry, it may not be flat at all. This one's a great daily scent for the cooler months, dates, and quiet evenings out. It never gets loud, so it works well in intimate settings, and has a romantic quality due to the vanilla, leather, and subtle floral notes that linger around. Sold at a very reasonable price, I really don't think you can go wrong with this one. A safe blind buy and recommended for anyone over 18.
For comparison's sake think "Boss Bottled #6" "Kenneth Cole Mankind," and "Montblanc's Legend."
Baldessarini Ambre is one of my top 5 favorite fragrances. I love to wear it on chilly days. I do get the red apple, leather and whisky. The dry down is very nice and it lasts a very long time on me. Very highly recomended.
A safe Amber like scent
I like these types of scents, the color reveils its type, a warm cozy scent its not very intelligent or suprising its just a good safe scent to go out with.
I think they made a mixup of labdanum, benzoin, vanilla, styrax and fir or a combination of some of these to create an effect which gives this scent its richness and in top and middle they put a sweet apple in it to create a sort like burned,caramelised apple effect.
Best worn on a evening out or if you want to get romantic...
Women will digg their noses in your neck!
My verdict : Deep,sultry,enigmatic,warm,cuddly and boozy fragrance for men. ( yes indeed MEN , not for little boys )
Pros: Women like it in general
Cons: Can be a bit too linear sometimes"
A VERY SHORT LIVED CEDAR BASED SCENTS. LIGHT HINTS OF BORUBON AND SPICE IN THE DRYDOWN MAKE IT ENJOYABLE.fades too quick too be considered top or even mid notch level. an extreme version would work with more emphasis on spice and liquor.
Pros: ENJOYABLE WITH LIGHT ZEST
Cons: TOO SHORT LIVED
