There are 9 reviews of Rive d'Ambre.
This opens with a very good bergamot top note which dies down to a subtle bergamot skin-scent and then... nothing.
How Tom Ford can justify charging such a high price for this kind of thing is beyond me. I admit that the bergamot is extremely well done but the fragrance as a whole is so one-dimensional and short-lived that it amounts to little more than a luxury version of Boss Orange.
Another disappointment from the Private Blend line which really needs to return to the early promise of Tobacco Vanille, Amber Absolute and Oud Wood et al if it to retain any credibility.
Pros: Very good bergamot note.
Cons: One-dimensional and short-lived."
Let me start by saying that Rive d'Ambre is probably my favorite Tom Ford release of the past few years. However, that's not saying much when there have been so many duds released. Upon application, I get a burst of natural citrus notes reminiscent of a freshly cut orange or tangerine. However, within a matter of a couple hours, the scent is gone. Even when I do smell it, it projects very poorly.
Rive d'Ambre smells very similar to Frederic Malle Bigarade Concentree. I much prefer the Malle.
Pros: Smells of natural oranges
Cons: Fleeting. Poor projection & longevity."
It opens with a slight minty citrus freshness with a touch of amber and floral musk. It's very light and non descript and does not last. A poor effort.
