Reviews of Eau de Mandarine Ambrée

I'm not sure why anyone would want to smell like orange jelly/jello. This is sweet and a little cloying, soapy and synthetic.

If you've ever eaten one of those sour tangerine Jelly Belly beans, then you've already experienced this fragrance.

I wouldn't say it was awful but it's not my idea of perfumery or even refreshing cologne. Think along the lines of a tacky car air freshener swinging from the rear view mirror of a taxi you wish you hadn't stepped into. Although this is fairly light in sillage and projection, I think it would be positively sickening in the heat.

I don't smell any amber, per se, but I guess I'm thinking in the traditional sense. Otherwise, this is a juicy, lovely concoction of citrus and passionfruit.

Funny though, one day I love this, the next it smells very sour and pickled. A bit temperamental, but still good stuffs.

Dusty orange and amber accompanied with a few fruity notes. Not my style. This is a spring scent. Think this maybe too cloying in the summer. 6.5/10

A very pleasant combination of mandarin orange, passionfruit, and amber, all of which complement one another well and make for a juicy, summertime scent with a nice warm drydown. Longevity is extremely poor for the price point.

I just can smile when wearing or testing or smelling this cologne.
You can relax with it.
" Jean-Claude Ellena" create a very comfortable cologne to wear.
He knows how to play with perfume notes as well as "Beethoven" knows how to play with music notes.

This is a very nice instance of cologne that based on amber.
You know that amber has not natural essence. and it made from tonka bean and some other notes. so we have many kind of amber.
In this case, You smell a sharp and resinous kind of amber.
one of the best of them.
Select mandarin along with Amber, is a smart choice.

But there is a problem in this artwork.
It is EDC (eau de cologne).
The longevity and sillage are so hopeless.

It seems like Jean Claude Ellena has spent ages honing in on the perfect juicy citrus. Jour d'Hermès had fantastically bright, sweet, juicy topnotes but got caught up in a whirlwind of shampoo and fabric softener. But I think, with Eau de Mandarine Ambrée, he may have finally gotten everything just right.

The mandarin is so hyper-realistic that it's almost pop art, like smelling one of those "Cuties" mandarins, but rendered in such day-glo orange that it requires a slug of salt to keep it focused. If you're going to buy this for anything, buy it for the hours of juicy citrus - the amber is quiet enough that it's not worth sampling this as an amber perfume. That being said, the butterscotchy, nutty amber far from an afterthought - it's got a lot of complexity. It's just not the star of the show.
