Thread: Ambergris frags

  1. #1

    Default Ambergris frags

    I'm interested in smelling some fragrance with ambergris. I know Creeds usually have ambergris in their basenotes, but does anyone have any other fragrances of particular note?

    Last time I wore Habit Rouge EdC I was struck by an ambergris-like quality in the base (didn't really notice that before).

    Mandarine-Mandarin from Serge Lutens has a pretty conspicuous ambergris (probably synthetic) among its basenotes.

    I am quite surprised no one has mentioned Creed (stands behind a thick wall)
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    Phantagarow made my nomination. Azzaro PH is what I use to tell myself about ambergris.

    I know! Isn't Erolfa very ambergris heavy? I have a decant of that.

    About whether or not Creed was mentioned, I thought you were asking for other fragrances of particular note.

    I am. I'm writing down people's suggestions. Though if there happens to be a Creed that is noted for a prominent ambergris note, do tell! I'll smell it and try to pick it out.

    Time to research the directory, I reckon.

    Profumum Fiori d'Ambra has the most magnificent Ambergris note i've ever smelled.

    Erolfa, along with MI, have very very prominent ambergris notes of all the Creed scents (I think). I'm also looking for GREY amber prominent scents and not RESIN amber scents. Even scents stating grey amber as a base note seems more like resinous amber, and that annoys the heck out of me when I receive my samples

    Agarscentsbazaar's Ambergris White is pure White Grade Ambergrs tincture. It is amazing and is as complex as any perfume out there. Because it is top grade there is no animal note to it so it is that much easier to wear. It can be purchased here: http://www.agarscentsbazaar.com/serv...-PARFUM/Detail

    Indeed. Those bottom notes are pure magic when they appear in all their glory.

    You might want to order a sample of Molecule 02 from www.luckyscent.com. It's basically just ambrox, a synthetic version of ambergris. Similar to the real thing, but lacks the oceanic and salty scent of the real stuff... as well as some "magic" only real ambergris has.

    I haven't tried the ambrox/Molecule 02 yet, but I have a sample on its way to me in the mail. I'll post on it when I get it.

    Of course Creed, goes without saying, MPG as well. As for the more mainstream edts that are widely available Kouros and Kouros Cologne Sport both have a nice ambergris quality to them.

    Ditto that. I think Himalaya and MI have the strongest ambergris note in the Creed line, with Himalaya edging out MI.
