l agree with all the positive reviews here; this is a silky-smooth, sensual, comforting & yet sexy amber. There's just a hint of orange in the opening, & then it doesn't develop any further, but melts into the skin as a sweet, musky amber which stays close, but lasts for hours. A very nice scent for cozying up with, like a soft, warm blanket.
I keep a tightly sealed dark blue glass jar with a chunk of pure unadulterated amber from a chemists' supply. On moments when I need a smile, I reach for that jar and get a whiff of the Real Deal. Of all the other amber frags out there, only Sage Machado captures so perfectly that single exquisite note. And unlike a lump in a jar - I can actually *wear* Sage Machado Amber.
Yes, there are supporting notes - gentle traces of blonde wood and faint hints of orange rind, but Ms. Machado has so perfectly subdued them, letting the star ingredient do what it does best: shine. glow. burnish.
I meant to elaborate further, but what else can be said? Simply one of the best ambers ever.
In a nutshell, Sage Amber is the silkiest, richest, sexiest amber I've ever smelled. Absolute luxury.
