Reviews of Ambre Nue

Although I can tell this is an amber scent, it's a typical fresh take a la Atelier Cologne; the amber doesn't have the sharp, thick or dry qualities, the fragrance is creamy and gourmand-ish. The freshness at the beginning is replaced by a subtle bouquet of flowers. To me, this is in the lines of Vanille Insensee; not a duplicate, but both are approaching the same theme.

The opening declares itself as an amber straight away, smooth but with a fresher bergamot edge initially, with judicious doses of marigold and cinnamon combining with benzoin to create the amber impression. This amber is rounded and not sharp at all.

Soon a lovely labdanum develops, together with a very soft patchouli adding additional depth and richness to the amber core. In the base added tonka and vanilla give it a sweet note, but only gently so.

The sillage is moderate, the projection excellent, and the longevity is ten hours on my skin.

A very nice autumnal and versatile amber composition that is very well blended. 3.5/5.

Ambre Nue by Atelier Cologne seems to be frequently regarded as a citrus-dominant fragrance but I really don't get citrus at all. My experience of it is dominated by the amber and labdanum, a sweet floral mix that seems decidedly feminine. To its credit, it's an interesting fragrance with potential all-season and day/night versatility.

Performance is definitely above average for the line, more on par with Vanille Insensee and Rose Anonyme than most of the other fresher fragrances.

Ambre Nue retails above the typical Atelier Cologne rate, at $150 for 100ml, though it's slightly less expensive on Beautyspin.

I wouldn't say that regard it as bad, just mediocre and unfitting on my skin.

Ambre Nue is all about the bass, no treble. The benzoin, tonka bean and labdanum in the base combine harmoniously to approximate an amber scent, offering a smooth warm backdrop to the floral heart. It smells a lot like a quality floral talc, albeit one with patchouli undercurrents.

This one seems to battling between mandarine and amber. Smells nice though. Can be worn year round IMO. The cinnamon note is nice and refined in this. 7/10

Well this is definitely a floral spicy one!

In the opening I get a very real fresh Mandarin and floral Marigold... it's a very authentic orange fruity note, and it hit's you straight away.

I would describe this as a very warm scent. It certainly has a warmth to it and a spiciness which is really pleasant and uplifting (hot, fiery Cinnamon). The Amber note itself is the Labdanum, but it's the Benzoin, Tonka Bean and Patchoulli that make this a dark and heavy scent. It has a cologne like citrus opening (Bergamot and Mandarin), but once the heavy resins and spices show up it becomes a very dark, Ambery skin scent. The most satisfying creation I've tried from Atelier Cologne. Worth a try for sure!
