Ambrette 9 fragrance notes

Reviews of Ambrette 9

Not an unqualified success, it is light and delicate. I'm not sure I understand the brief I read about wanting to reproduce the mild milky mother and baby smell. Not getting that myself, there is a touch of very clean baby shampoo/powder smell with a grassy undertone of faint baby sick and perhaps poo? But not as disgusting as that reads. It does smell of clean warm bodies. It doesn't have a synthetic vibe and for such a mild and light scent it lasts amazingly well. It blooms in summer with warmth and possibly sweat into a post workout just showered feeling.

I can't say I see much merit in Le Labo Ambrette 9 at all. The opening is an acerbic mix of alcohol and rotten fruit, and it dries down to a gentler, sweeter version of the opening. I'd just as well wear no fragrance at all as opposed to something like this at a niche cost. It's not repulsive, just bizarre and underwhelming from both the standpoints of performance and scent, almost to the point that I'd guess I'd received a bad sample if it weren't an official Le Labo sample. Not much else to say apart from recommending against a blind buy.

Ambrette by Le Labo is a cute and graceful scented thingy gently and carelessly revolving around amber, musk, ambrettolide, ambroxan, with something fruity on top and a pleasant anisic-floral breeze providing a watercolour silky touch all over. Cozy, sweet, lively, as much pleasant as completely unsubstantial to me, as it basically smells like the drydown of a whatever floral-fruity feminine scent from the late Nineties. Feeble, nerveless, and short lived. Meh...

No perceptible odor whatsoever. Am I anosmic, or is this an expensive joke?

A Le Labo with a name containing -ette and no.9? I was expecting something simple, light with ambrette and maybe a touch of amber. What I got was an extremely light scent with ambrette and a whiff of a very light amber with a touch of citrus, with aldehydes. Extremely close to my skin, neither any significant silage nor projection, and two hours of longevity. Not bad, but not enough, I am afraid, of nearly everything that matters.

Fruity musk. Ambrette 9 is a thin and synthetic concoction of slightly acidic, sort of fresh, fruit and musks. The fragrance is so subtle that initially I couldn't detect anything but a light (non-sweet) fruityness but as it started to react with the skin, synthetic musks made their presence clearer turning Ambrette 9 into a transparent, inoffensive but overall pleasant "clean-fragrance" Nice but unremarkable.

Lovers of the "Jardins" serie by Hermes should dig this.
