    Default Halston Man Amber by Halston

    A new release, for men and women, from Halston...flankers of the Halston Man and Halston Woman's re-releases last year. Very little information at this point, but look at that bottle...



    The Scented Salamander gets the scoop!

    I assume this will be a Neiman's exclusive as well...

    The notes sound awesome! Can't wait to try this. Hopefully this will have a wider release than Neiman's and Bergdorf Goodman.

    The tall bottle (Woman, if I had to guess) looks like a gold-plated Feminité du Bois!

    So, this is not to be confused with the new Halston Man, right?

    On the Neiman Marcus website - wonder if they have testers yet?

    I get it from Harrods & it was my gift to all my family members, the most original oud launch this fall & for a reasonable price, i mean it does stand out from the Armani Prive' Oud & Jo Malone Oud.

    They do have testers at Neiman's and I tried this and I have to say I am impressed.

    Tried this at NM today. Could be my next buy. Loved it and will be great for Fall. A lot better than the Silver Man and I liked its vibe better than TF Italian Cypress. Similar but not. I got a full tobacco, woods feel from it.

    I'm up for it. I'd love to see Halston have a resurgence. I'm ready to head back to the '70s anytime!

    It is. I was on break and have to go back to try it again. She let me sniff the Silver Man and then we both tried Amber...she hadn't tested it..and she was like "Wow, I love that." I thought the same thing.

    I tried this today and really liked it. IMO it is one of the better recent releases - much better than things like Blew de Chanel. I get a lot of insence from it on my skin - which I like a lot.

    Agree. I tried this again, as mentioned in my Niemans thread, and the drown was amber, incense and a burned firecracker smell I got a lot of in the initial sprays. I love this and Bang right now.

    I'm wearing this today because of the morning cool weather and I love it!!This is a great Fall scent and probably one of the best done scents I've smelled this year. The difference on skin vs card is the amber...go figure. The amber is present much more on the skin. The initial spray was that firecracker burning paper smell mixed with a creamy amber.. Then the incense(myrrh) creeps in and overall that is what I get. Basically if you made 3 piles of burning things below your feet and the smoke was wafting up to your nose it would be burning a medium pile of burning fireworks, a small amount of amber in the middle and a thing of incense sticks last. All of it comes up at the same time in varying degrees and it is wonderful.

    I know the idea of the fireworks paper smell may not make sense but when I brought it up to the SA at Nieman's she said she got the same thing. I'm guessing the Amber, Labdanum and Myrrh and woods are giving me alot of this combo. As I said in the other thread I spent 3 weeks in another part of Houston for work, close to Nieman's and the Galleria. I visited there probably 7 times. I tried everything from Creed Aventus, to Bang, to Halston Amber to Ferragamo to all the Cartiers, etc. This was hands down one of the best done scents and one card I kept coming back to. She finally broke and made a sample. I actually had the card out to purchase it but the snobs ( ) only take American Express or Niemans....damn Visa....lol

    Hey we have two posts going on with the same subject so I copied this from the other post. Should combine them, I think.

    Neiman's ace SA (Andrew) sent me a sample of Man Amber Halston along with a few others, and I've worn Man Amber twice and I am getting acquainted with it. I hope its not just my "new fragrance blush" but to me this is one fantastic fragrance. I have some very good amber fragrance in my wardrobe - but I know I will buy a bottle of Man Amber - it is very good!

    NOTES - Top: geranium leaves, province thyme and bergamot; Mid: pure amber, myrrh and labdanum; Base: oud wood, cedar atlas and musk

    True to its name it is a masculine scent that smells primarily of amber, but amber turned darker than I've smelled in a while. The top notes blend in and go away on me, but a very noticeable smoke woods note drifts all through and around the red cedar/oud woods that elevates off the surface. The woods have impressive "hang time" all around the amber. It may be clever use of synthetics here that causes the liveliness of cedar and smoke but the combination of the sprightly woods with the low and slow amber is brilliant. The woods are a combination of oud + atlas cedar which yields that old fashioned red cedar closet type of cedar made with freshly split wood.

    You can tell I like this one quite a bit. This is my favorite of the recent release of very nice wood + amber/vanilla fragrances that includes Givenchy Play Intense and D&G the One Gentleman. Halston Man Amber!

    Wonderful scent that is not LOUD like a lot of "Amber" scents can be - the oud really stands out in this one.

    Excellent description. I revisited Amber Man as a result of this thread and have to agree it just may be the best masculine amber scent out there. I really appreciate the way the sweetness is turned down a few notches, allowing the wood notes to mingle.

    Next to l'ombre fauve, this is another 'go to' of this genre.
