Seven samples of my choice.
Portrait of a Lady, which I like, similar to Briar Rose but Briar is less expensive. Of the two, I prefer Briar Rose.
Ambre Extreme by L'artisan has a very, very bad note in there to me, like a strong poop note then gets better as the dries down. But horrible poopy note!
Amber Oud by Kilian, not bad really! Could go for a little less bay in there though.
Noir Epices, something in there makes me sneeze, musky? Plus orange-y rose, not sure if I like orange-y rose, pass. Was expecting more spice..all I get is orange-y rose and a bit of pepper. A rose dipped in peppered orange juice or rinds..not diggin it.
L'eau de Ambre L'artisan, a no good green note, must be the geranium, don't think I like geranium. That green, blech.
Ambre Precieux by MPG. Kind of reminds me of Must De Cartier for women, which I like but there is something about this I don't care for, some kind of greenness to it or something/smells antiseptic-y. Don't think I'd wear it.
Voleur de Roses L Artisan, a branch-y, woody patch and rose. A bit too much patch in there for me though and I don't like strong patch notes on my hubs either. The rose note is alright after that patch subsides a bit. I don't like that much patch in my scents though, at least that kind of patch? I do like some, just not that much, probably wouldn't wear. For a dark rose, I much prefer something like Noir De Noir by Tom Ford.
2 out of 7 I may wear, lol
