    Amber by Demeter Fragrance Library

    I got this because the description on the Demeter web site led me to believe that it smelled like ambergris. I imagined that they had done a headspace analysis of real whale puke and reproduced it perfectly.

    Not so much. But then, what do you expect for a $20 4 oz. bottle of cologne spray?

    Well, what you should expect is a very straightforward sweet amber in the organic-food-store/headshop mold. Lasts about an hour or so on skin. Nothing amazing, but given the price/ml, its a good value. Might be good as a bedtime scent, for scenting linens maybe, or anytime you want something sweet and simple that won't linger for hours.
