    Ambre Sultan by Serge Lutens Les Salons du Palais Royal Shiseido

    Ambre Sultan has captured EXACTLY what it was going for - a bone-dry amber fragrance that brings to mind a middle-eastern bazaar.

    Resinous with loads of sandalwood and coriander, this really pushes the boundaries of what western perfumes do with amber accords.

    Surprisingly, this fragrance works extremely well in the heat (as it also does in cooler weather) and makes a nice change to the generic aquatics that are mostly used in stiflingly hot weather.

    To me this scent is just a little linear to make it a must-buy, but if you truly appreciate the amber accords that are so often ruined by fragrance houses, you'd do well to sniff this out.
