    Default Is it just me, or is TF Amber Absolute more of an incense frag than an amber?

    The top notes were very ambery, but after 10-15 minutes, I smell exactly like the Meiji Jingu shrine in Tokyo, Japan.

    Predominantly amber really. It was my SOTSlumber. It's a very consoling amber perfume. One of my favorite non-spicy ambers.

    AA is very rich in labdanum, a resinous incense ingredient.
    ointments and perfume delight the heart....

    Amber is I'd say the "identity" element.

    l'd say amber is the predominant note, but there is a pronounced note of incense which gives it a bit of depth. The drydown is pure, sweet, rich amber on me.

    Update: Purchased it (FB)!

    Edit: In large part because of that incense accord. I ended up choosing this over Jubilation XXV, at least for the time being. Can't put a price on those Japan memories
