    Default HdP Ambre 114 - Ahhhh Man This Is Gorgeous Stuff

    I have not worn this fragrance for a while but I am sitting here typing these words whilst been surrounded by a lush bouquet of amber vanilla loveliness.

    The fragrance shines through with the finest ingredients and it has a complexity with rose and sandalwood weaving in and out of the smooth creamy amber vanilla loveliness giving you that perfect satisfaction.

    The scent is so perfectly balanced and the projection and longevity never outstays it's welcome but is there to satisfy a days cravings. In fact I would say the whole fragrance on every level sit's in the goldilocks zone of been just right.

    I just want to say to anyone who has not sampled this fragrance please give it a chance to weave it's magic as it really is enchanting and divine to your olfactory senses.

    Yes it's great. I actually think all HDP fragrances are gorgeous. 1725, 1828 and 114 are my favourites though.

    Yep a very surprising scent, the balance and composition are exceptional. Sweet ambers have their place but the balance this bad boy strikes makes it vastly more versatile and wearable. As Jack said, well worth sampling if not owning.

    Sounds like a good one. Thanks for the review.

    Sure is.

    I find it produces some really nice wafts throughout the day.

    It has a bit of a transparency factor which works really well with it and causes that coming and going wave effect.

    It's very good indeed.

    Have you tried Versilia Vintage Ambra Mediterennea?

    for swap/sale:

    I have tried the scent and it is another excellent amber fragrance. Very woody and more masculine as I remember, it is the second best amber fragrance I like after amber 114.

    I have been trying to get a sample/decant here in the US and keep striking out. One time the guy just ran out, then a guy stopped selling, and in other cases we couldn't work out a swap. I will try this at some point!

    I am not big on amber but I LOVE Ambre 114. Thanks for reminding as I should wear it more often.

    Well put - as you normally do...I too agree that HdP's frags are some of the most well made frags I own / sampled. This house, along with MPEG & PG are the 3 houses which I find the most frags to be just nice - not overly good in any particular way nor are they underdone in any way.

    These are houses that any parfum connoisseur / DIY should sample for the craftsmanship / creativity aspects...

    Ambre 114 is one of my fav amber based frag...

    Laff aht Lahd —well, that's a backwards compliment.

    I'm with badarun. I find Ambre 114 to be a nice, fascinatingly constructed, true to form amber with no real fills. It does what it does subtley without blowing your head off or reducing you to vanilla/powder. With that said, it's not my personal favorite (I love Amber Absolute and L'Ombre Fauve because they go a little above and beyond), but I can totally respect it.

    I actually find the whole line to be similarly understated, but a number of their other scents don't do much for me at all.

    Be careful on the trigger with this one. 2 sprays max. One spray for me does the trick.

    A very beautiful fragrance indeed. One of the few that has really "wowed" me in almost every way.

    Very smooth amber
