    Unhappy Profumum Fiore di Ambra- massive disappointment

    I was extremely excited to try this fragrance because of the supposed opium note. Sadly I get no opium at all, or at least nothing I can detect amidst its powdery, balsamic, vanillic, resin-yness . In many ways it reminded me quite strongly of Parfum d'Empire's Cuir Ottoman. I'm not a fan of these types of scents, needless to say I was extremely disappointed because opium smoke is one of the most magical smells I have experienced. Any comments on Fiore di Ambra and/or the smell of opium smoke would be welcome.

    I really like this one and was planning on buying a bottle sometime. I get the opium in it in the bitter note that's present although not very smoky.

    I tried it again today, and I do notice a slight bitterness, and I can see how this could be perceived as opium, because there really is not much odor to opium putty beyond a slight bitterness. The smell of opium smoke is entirely different. Unfortunately that's what I was hoping to find in this fragrance.

    I am however enjoying this slightly more on my second try.
