    Default Ambre Narguile smells like....

    Just got Ambre Narguile and I feel like it smells like a toned down version of Spiritueuse Double Vanille. Does anyone get any similarities between the 2 besides being really hard to spell?

    I'm sorry but I don't get that. Ambre Narguile smells like warm apple pie and cream to me

    Yea.....maybe I was a little quick to suggest that, I just tried them side by side and yea, of course they smell different. But there is still a part of the sweetness that I feel they both share. Ambre being of course more ambery and SDV being more boozy...I dunno, they just sort of remind me of one another still.

    No way! I think that Ambre Narguille is an excellent room fragrance. I do not find it all that easy to wear. I like the smell, I am just not sure if I want to smell like that.
    My current top ten:
    1. Spice and Wood
    2. Tonka Imperiale
    3. Dior Homme
    4. Pure Malt
    5. Oud Wood
    6. Ambre Nuit
    7. L'air Du Desert Marocain
    8. Noir de Noir
    9. Apple Brandy
    10.Straight to Heaven

    Excellent warm and comforting smell, but not something I'd like to smell like. Smells vividly like American apple pie.

    Ambre Narguil to me smells like Armagnac. That warm, boozy but not too sweet feeling is just great.
