    Default Mona Di Orio

    I was wondering if anyone has tried Mona Di Orio´s Ambre. Do you find it sweet? Animalic? Powdery? What are your thoughts?

    Ambre is rather saccharine as it opens, but shifts into something rather multi-dimensional. It is resinous, but with burnt, honeyed qualities. As the perfume evolves, one can detect a dense floral core, which becomes slightly more powdery and vanillic with time. A soft ribbon of cedar lies within, furnishing the perfume with a melancholic aspect that is hard to describe. I liken it to the sweet powdery smell of an old mahogany grand piano, with a thin film of dust that has settled on the keys.

    Official notes are: Cedarwood, Ylang Ylang, Tolu resin, Benzoin, and Vanilla Absolute.

    I ran into her line yesterday. Keep an eye on her scents because I detect a rising star. Her scents are are well composed and up there with the best Houses.

    I tried it this evening. It's a lovely, powdery but not overly sweet amber.
