    L'Eau d'Ambre by L'Artisan Parfumeur

    The light aqueous/botanic (and with botanic i mean slightly grassy/floral and lymphatic) first impact is the prelude to a really simplistic, comforting and graceful ambery aroma. The latter teleports me in those days of the year that in the south Italy herald the upcoming summer, days when i use to face the life with optimism at morning well "showered" by a soapy and neutral soft ambery bath foam. I detect a really affordable amber almost utterly deprived of the usual animalic ambery mould and with a balmy final evolution. I detect the patchouli for sure while the floral presence is undertermined and just watery/grassy in my feel. I agree this scent could be good to be combined as olfactory base for other concoctions. The dry down does not contain powdery woods, moss, musk or honey, just a soft, unpretentious and soapy/balmy amber with a minimal density and a touch of residual fluidity.
