    Default Ambre Doré by Maître Parfumeur et Gantier (new release)

    As a huge fan of MPG's creations, I am VERY EXCITED about this one:

    Maître Parfumeur et Gantier presents its newest perfume, Ambre Doré in June 2012, embracing this oud trend, adding a touch of regality in its already classy and varied line of fragrances. In fact the fragrance isn't completely new: It was launched in 2006 exclusively for the Eastern market, but the dominance of oud in western perfumery for connoisseurs has finally given the kick to launch it to the west as well as part of the collection “Les Accords Mystères.”

    Ambre Doré, an oriental for men but shared by women, garlands the mysterious essence of oud with ambergris and other essences that recall both the east in regards to heritage and its powerful pull; styrax resin, saffron spice, sandalwood, coriander, myrrh resin and vetiver grass are united with oud and amber to bring harmony to the composition and to rekindle the tradition of Jean Laporte's brand, which has always excelled in its ambery orientalized blends.

    Notes for Ambre Doré:
    Top notes: styrax, geranium, clary sage
    Middle notes: ambergris, oud, coriander, saffron
    Basenotes: sandalwood, vetiver, myrrh

    The packaging is decorated with a carved diamond glass stoper on the classic slender bottle of Maître Parfumeur et Gantier, this time in a warm brownish shade like a precious topaz.


    Debuting in June 2012, Eau de Parfum in 100ml/3.4oz bottles.

    Holy sh...!

    Notes list is epic. I love JP Millet-Lage's style as much (or more? Heresy, I know) than Laporte's.

    This better be good. No, it will be good...

    ..please, for the love of god, be good!


    Wait, I just read that again, and apparently in my excitement I missed this blurb the first time through:

    " In fact the fragrance isn't completely new: It was launched in 2006 exclusively for the Eastern market, but the dominance of oud in western perfumery for connoisseurs has finally given the kick to launch it to the west as well as part of the collection “Les Accords Mystères.”"

    So does that mean this is basically a relaunching or tweaking of their old oud scent - Soir d'Orient? As far as I can tell that was released in 2006 (well, that's the earliest the reviews show for the scent) to only the middle east, which really makes this sound like a re-release.

    THAT would be epic.

    I sniffed it at their Paris boutique in April. I regret not having asked for a sample. It smelled right to me, if you wanted something stronger than Ambre Sultan (it's gotten a bit more timid over the years to me) and with oud. I am not fond of most oud fragrances, but this smelled great to me. I will have to revisit this.
    I wonder whether it bears any resemblance with the legendary Soir d'Orient?

    Default Re: Ambre Doré by Maître Parfumeur et Gantier (new release)

    I wonder if this is somewhat similar to Amouage's Opus VI then. Was the amber element of this dry and woody/dusty, or more thick and creamy or 'wet'?

    Weird......

    I saw this here about 8 months ago.

    I was confused. I didn't know if it was new and I missed the release announcement or old and I overlooked it.

    I told Alfarom and scent about it. ... They weren't aware of it either.

    Hedonist, did you ever try their earlier Soir d'Orient? This sounds like a (tweaked?) re-release and I'm curious if anyone will be able to confirm that.

    This must be a re-issue of Soir d'Orient then. Almost every review of Soir d'Orient mentions Ambre Precieux, saying that SdO is like AP + oud.

    This is making me regret not having sampled AP!

    I too am very interested to hear your opinion, hedonist! My first thought also was that this looks like a kind of re-release of Soir d'Orient. It's available in Paris. You can call the boutique, hednic! The directrice gave me her business card to call in the future, if I wanted to order from them directly. No store outside Paris seems to stock the full range.

    Just sprayed.

    So far:

    Amber is very obvious
    No oud yet
    Plenty of resin and spice (herb)
    No geranium
    Some saffron

    Very aromatic.

    This is the reason i didn't buy ambre preceiuex (spl).

    I felt AP to be a little less complex than i like.

    This is complex plentiful.

    I have half a bottle left of the original Soir d'Orient which I have been using very cautiously. This does sound very similar to it. I can't wait to try it. I emailed MPG in France about it a few weeks ago and never got a reply.

    All of the places I've enquired seem to think it'll be available end of September.

    I pre-ordered this back in June from Min NY and just got confirmation that my package has been sent! Parfum1 also has this and shows 2 in stock.

    kron and duke hunt - yesterday i got a message from nick at les senteurs in london that they have placed an order for ambre dore and he expects to start selling it at the end of september the latest. as soon as they have it i'll go sample it and let you know my impressions.
    also, apparently mpg will be selling their entire line in uk through a major distributor very soon (this is also from nick) and not just a high end niche shop like les senteurs.

    Okay, you guys pushed me over the edge... I smelled it in Paris last April (and haven't forgotten it since) and now asked my local shop to order it for me. They'll try. It would save me shipping cost from Paris, so let me be 'cheap'.
