Ambre Tigré fragrance notes

Reviews of Ambre Tigré

An amazing multi-faceted amber! Which isn't as easy to come by as you might think. Amber is used as a throw around cheap base note in almost every mainstream release you can think of. It's most often times found cozied up right next to patchouli on a list of base notes, and the two have started to become interchangeable almost to the point of in-recognition in many fragrances.

The vanilla gives this sweetness, but it's not the herbal chocolate lended to amber by aforementioned patchouli. The labdanum gives it a resinous wood with the tease of a powdery accord (one of my favorite 'textures' in a fragrance for lack of a better term at this point in time) but not enough to lean into standard subpar oriental drydown. Granted, this is the loveliness of an oriental drydown without the few hours of fruity floral mess that a house like Givenchy might normally employ in a mainstream release. Ambre Tigre doesn't beat around the bush. Entirely linear, which means you'll know exactly how you feel about the scent almost as soon as it touches your skin.

Multiple short whiffs right on top of each other reveal a waxy, hidden incense. Like the sensation of blowing out the candles on a birthday cake and the smell that immediately follows, but it's gone in a flash.

I'm loving these fragrances with a stripped down note pyramid lately. It's easier to get an idea of what you're smelling and appreciate the scent for what it truly is, and not worry about getting only 3-4 of the 20+ notes promised in crazy marketing bubbles (sometimes not even the notes that sparked your interest in the first place!)

This is a delicious beast (Tiger, if we're being on the nose) and another one added to the list of future purchases for fall/winter. Sillage is great and longevity is as long as you want to go without showering it off. (for me around 8-10 hours after application)

If you've just about given up on 'amber' fragrances due to the lack of clarity and smelling like just another version of "_____", give Ambre Tigre a try.

A gorgeous Oriental fragrance comprised of vanilla, and a resinous amber. The perfect gourmand for lovers of vanilla.

While wearing two sprays of Ambre Tigré, I was in a co-worker's office talking with her. When I returned to my desk, my co-worker messaged me and wrote that another female co-worker walked by her office and said

"Ohhhh someone's perfume smells good."

So projection is low (within arm's length) but apparently sillage in motion is very good.

Longevity was around 8 hours on my skin.

Ambre Tigré can be worn for any occasion during the Spring, Autumn and Winter seasons.

An opaque and aggressive amber that is truly unisex. The labdanum note provides some complexity and an olfactory break from the heady amber.
