    Default Ambre 114 appreciation thread

    I have never said this since I joined BN but this comes as close to Holy Grail material as I have experienced. Not in the way that it exceeds all other fragranes qualitywise or regarding uniqueness but rather that I have been craving it without a break for two weeks straight now and cannot figure out why.

    I dont get it myself, I sampled this 2 years ago and dismissed it as mediocre.
    Gave the sample to a friend, who loved it and I finally got a bottle for him.
    Friend became flat mate and I couldnt get around how awesome that Ambre 114 smelled.
    Long story short it's at the top of my to buy list.

    I love Ambre Sultan for a herbaccious amber.
    I love my french amber for an ambery amber.
    I love AMbre Russe for a boozy amber.

    But this reaches a spot inside of me the others cant seem to.

    Amazing.

    Theres something in it that makes it glow more so than how amber usually gives of a glowing embracing feeling.

    Have those in your list and agree with you. They all have their place in the "amber pantheon".

    It's my favorite amber scent. The vetiver and rose elevate it to a higher level than just an another amber.

    I love Ambre Precieux, Ambre Fetiche, L'Eau d'Ambre Extreme...but Ambre 114 is my favourite amber fragrance. I have sampled it for a while and when I buy the full bottle, it will certainly be my one and only amber perfume.

    I really like it, but I feel that they took too many footnotes from Ambre Sultan to make it distance itself too distinctly from the Lutens' one. Fantastic none the less, but the win still goes to Ambre Sultan for me.

    Ooooh yes It's difficult to decide, because there is a nice 15 ml. pocket spray with the big bottles.

    Just ordered six 2ml samples from HdP online, including Ambre 114 (only 10 euro and free delivery). Really looking forward to trying this, especially given the many positive comments.

    Love Ambre 114. Extremely refined and, most of all, one of the easiest to wear and most versatile ambers around...

    @Kevin: Amazing little bottles. I own Tubereuse 3 and Petroleum in that format...

    Oh, I thought it was him unsuspectingly walking in on something he wasn't expecting to see and then promptly turning around to exit by the same way that he came in.

    Then again sometimes he posts pictures just for the heck of it, and it could have no meaning. Anyway, 114 is solid stuff.

    I am also a big fan of 114, HdP is a very interesting house. To me this is one of the premiere ambers around. If you want to try something new in amber try Ambr'ero from Cerchi Nell'Acqua. Its quite a find.
    It was a calculated risk. Unfortunately, I'm bad at math.

    Note breakdown looks pretty interesting on that one actually. I'll have to give it a shot sometime. In an amber note unrelated to 114, last night I wore Ambre Russe for the second time (though the first time was in summer, and it didn't make a striking impact on me at the time). Man is that one killer! One of the more unique takes on amber that I've smelled so far. I'd definitely like to pick up a bottle of that to wear in the spring.

    I went back to Ambre 114 last night because of this thread ( I have a couple of samples) and it was lovely to notice something that I had never noticed before. I have always thought that Amber 114 is the most incredibly balanced and harmonious blend with no particular notes being dominant. Then last night I discovered that in fact it opens with the most beautiful, incredible ambery aromatic ROSE. You live and learn. Thanks buddy.

    Oh, and this is on the wish list. The wee half bottles are great. I have 1876 (Mata Hari) in that size. Another rose for the boys!?
