Best Amber of All time.

Uber-intense (many would say overwhelming) Ambra Mediterranea is both beautiful and brutal, and it takes no prisoners: this is full-throttle ambergris, only for hardy enthusiasts. Ambra Mediterranea is deliberately excessive, sort of a comfort scent in overdrive: a veritable explosion of smooth balmy sweetness, tropical spices and gorgeous amber opulence. The name makes little sense: I don't see anything “Mediterranean” about it. This fragrance is eminently oriental, a thick and pervasive ambery sweetness wonderfully backed up and rounded off by a delicious mix of sticky resins (tolu, benzoin), vanilla, incense, a bit of musk and patchouli, a dash of coriander and maybe a drop or two of citrus. Ambra Mediterranea is disarming and decadent, mysterious and unapologetically maximalist. Apply with extreme caution - a bottle of this stuff will last you forever. Very highly recommended.

If you're looking for smooth, sensual and yummy type of amber this is right up your alley. for me this fragrance is something between "Tom Ford Amber Absolute" and "Montale Blue Amber". more rough against Blue Amber and smoother against Amber Absolute.

The opening of this fragrance is a sweet amber and vanilla combo mixed with some incense. the sweetness isn't so strong and it leans more toward creamy side which makes it super yummy! the incense gives this sweet opening herbal and kind of soft smoky aura and this is where it reminds me of Blue Amber but little more naughty!

As time passes the incense settles down and some spices and woody joining in.
The mid is still a creamy and lovely amber/vanilla plus soft woods and spices and a little incense in the background that they all together creating a sharp but at the same time completely wearable peppery woody scent which makes it more masculine. this is where it reminds me of Amber Absolute but definitely smoother.

The base is pretty the same except woods and spices are weaker and mostly in the background while creamy amber and vanilla (now it's more vanilla) dominating the scent. the whole performance is very smooth and easy to love.
Projection is great and longevity is 10 hours at least.

the summer season is over, the first autumn clouds are rolling in, all the stabilimenti are closed..this is the end of summer in a bottle sad oily ambra, solid sillage and duration, wonderful scent....

Finally one of the very few amber scents which tries to do something creative with this accord. A dry, smoked, camphoraceous amber rich in darkness and sour resins (like benzoin), with an indolic and dusty texture, perhaps provided by jasmine. Basically a sort of Donna Karan’s Black Cashmere with less spices (at least initially) and more amber: there’s quite some differences, but that (and other scents like that) came to my mind because of its dark, ambery thickness, almost harsh and pungent, which is one of the most interesting features of Ambra as well. The scent is really good initially, and much powerful too, with a palpable and charming feel of gloomy nostalgia, romantic and quite decadent (jasmine, benzoin, woods). Finally something different from basically almost all other warm-sweet-powdery amber scents – nothing against them, if there wasn’t dozens of them. This scents has almost nothing in common with almost any other amber: the note is there, but it’s austere, dry, sour and shady. Much velvety and mellow too, but in a sort of more sensual, “naughtier”, mature way if compared to the cozy, friendly warmth of the usual amber accord. On the very base I also get a balmy-woody accord, that too quite dark, dirty and smoked (almost like oud at some points), but with a brighter, more gently aromatic side of cedar. In my opinion, the downside here is a persistent “chemical” feel, something halfway metallic and terpenic, and the use of spices (which is a totally personal opinion, but it seems like they are there just to provide more substance and thickness, and after a while they get kind of boring to my nose). Apart from this, surely a remarkable take on amber worthy a try. One of the few Duchaufour I like!
