    Ambre Précieux by Maître Parfumeur et Gantier

    amber, butter, powdery vanilla drydown

    Wanted to love it, but it was just OK. Its a comfortable, respectable, and unchallenging smooth amber fragrance and I can see why its a classic favorite.

    So far in my exploration of this note there are 3 other fragrances I prefer over this because they are more bumped up with spice or something medicinal added to it. Worth testing though for historical value, and I'm glad I did.

    I give it a 3 stars because there is a distinct "butter" smell I get from this, and I don't mean: "buttery" as in creamy. Maybe what is butter to my nose is "play doe" to another poster below this.

    That and the powder vanilla drydown is why its a neutral rating for me as I'm not a vanilla fan.
