    Ambre Précieux by Maître Parfumeur et Gantier

    A real masterpiece in "Amber" scents kind.... Warm, embracing like a cachemire skarf, just a little spicy accent... and then the powerful but gentle presence of ambergris that lasts for so long.... so intoxicating but incredibly wearable.... this is the ultimate amber scent you can experience.

    Ambra Aurea by Profumum

    A dark, resinous, warm and sensual amber fragrance, probably one of my favourites because of its deep and obscure character, softened by some saline and rounding facets - surely due to
    its high percentage of ambergris that gives this fragrance its wonderful identity.
    As all other Profvmvm fragrances, its quite oily texture add a long-lasting but close-to-skin quality at the same time.
    Really addictive!

    Amber & Spices by Montale

    Really, I do not understand why Montale called this fragrance "Amber & Spices", as it clearly seems to be rather an aoud one, as it stands as the main note in it.
    Though, I can say that the usual medicamental scent of oud has been "rounded off" by precious woods and delicately heated by spices and an additional softening has been probably due to the amber presence, even if it is not clearly defined.
    Anyway, I like it as a further example of Montale's aoud interpretation.

    Aki by Tann Rokka

    A somptuous, rich, long-lasting fragrance: its powdery character, due to the rich amber and sandalwood notes make it a warm, sensual, very attractive scent. Vetiver and patchouli give their slight smokiness and some of spicy accent.
    Excellent in winter time, it is a perfect evening and night fragrance, when cold and dark comes...

    Acqua Viva by Profumum

    Such a really refined and long-lasting citrusy fragrance!!
    Lemon note is dominant, sparkling and bright. The drydown turns on cedarwood note, which is the most perceivable.
    Acqua Viva by Profvmvm is one of the best citrus based fragrances I know and I bought it!
    Just 2 things to say:
    - very expensive fragrance
    - its semi-oily texture, that makes it long lasting as well as all other fragrances of this brand
