    Oriental Amber by Pecksniff's

    Oriental Amber opens very interestingly with its burst of spice – interesting for about thirteen seconds. Then the spice severely settles down, joining with the middle florals in a rather unexciting heart accord. It’s soft and pleasant and it doesn’t really seem very floral – it seems like a slightly spicy, neutral texture accord. The first note I get from the base is sandalwood – it gradually slips in under the floral accord to provide a warm base to the florals. Then gradually the amber takes over the base. When the amber is dominant, it still presents a soft sandalwood and has added patchouli. The amber base is not really sweet and is quite recessive for an amber oriental; yet, as a skin scent, it has its attractions. Oriental Amber is a very nice feminine fragrance – well constructed with good accords. It could use better longevity.
