Reviews of Ambre Doré

A Rose by any other name

Ambre Dore, released in the west 2012 is Soir d'Orient.

From Fragrantica:

Maître Parfumeur et Gantier Ambre Doré launched for the US & European market June 2012, was initially launched in 2006 exclusively for the Eastern market, as Soir D'Orient, but the current trend of oud in western perfumery has finally made way for MPG to launch Ambre Dore to the west as well as part of the collection "Les Accords Mystères". Finis.

Definitely unisex at the opening the oud is dominant, with hints, to my nose, of sour tamarind, defintely medicinal, as already covered. Thereafter in its mature phase the fragrance veers towards the feminine and many hours later a trace of Imperial Leather loiters artfully. MPG does not get enough love. The only thing that heightened appeal for Soir D'Orient was its scarcity. It has been ignored as Ambre Dore. I would put it up against Arabian Wood by Tom Ford anyday. Same strategy, marketed exclusively to Prince Ali Khan by spin doctors with degrees in advanced elephant washing.

Your loss, my gain, I've stocked up.

Pros: Collector's item?
Cons:

Ambre Precieux 2.0. Those of you who like Ambre Precieux will definitely like Ambre Dore as well but if you find the former too simple and classic, you might still want to try and give a chance to this one. Don't get me wrong, the central amber accord here is literally the same but the fragrance have been given an exotic, herbal-leathery twist in the top notes with the addition of a skanky oud note and some herbs. The opening smells animalic, sort of challenging, intense and bold but, unfortunately, the fragrance quickly evolves into what could be just considered a batch variation of Ambre Precieux.

Good, very good...but maybe redundant if you already own AP. I stick with the Precieux.
