Very nice stuff from Mr.Monegal. Ambra di Luna opens with a slightly boozy amber note immediately joined by castoreum providing the right amount of "dirtyness" and immediately bringing to mind of a brutally tamed down Muscs Koublai Khan. Where are you going? Come back here, Ambra Di Luna doesn't share any similarities with the Lutens. The castoreum is really subtle and serves as a necessarely balance for the typical sweetness of most ambers. As the fragrance "evolves", there's a woody-balmy quality remarking its presence and driving the composition towards moderately sweet territories. Elegant, solid and well balanced with compelling dry undertones. If you like Monegal's restrained style, this is a great fragrance well worth checking out. Not as heavy or pwdery as other compositions in the same genre yet pretty darned solid.
