    Default Amber perfume with detectable rose

    Can you please suggest a sweet amber perfume with a touch of rose?

    My current favorite in this category is L'Artisan Parfumeur Ambre Extreme and I'd like to discover a few more.

    I tend to enjoy my amber on the powdery side, but I'm open to all suggestions. The only requirement is that the rose should be detectable.

    Thanks!

    This one is a finalist of the Art and Olfaction Award. But to be honest, I'm not interested in rose perfume that much, so I can't really see the nuance between this one and a...typical rose-amber perfume. A significant dose of rose came first, then after some twist, it transitions to a Ambre 114-esque sweet amber base.

    It's very dense though, a little goes a loooooooong way.

    Mitzah by Dior. Not listed in the notes, but I get a touch of amber in there.

    Thanks for all your suggestions! I don't know any of these, so I have lots to look up and test and yes, I'm looking for feminine and/or unisex perfumes.

    I smelled this one recently, it smelled very similar to Damarose. A little bit less fruity and more floral.

    Isn’t any oriental with rose a rose amber fragrance? I don’t mean to be snide. Just wondering. Thanks.

    Sorry for the late response.

    I'd say it isn't, not to me, at least. I'm aware that most oriental perfumes feature some sort of ambery notes in their pyramid, but to me an "amber" is a perfume which has amber (intended as labdanum + vanilla, other sweet resinous notes which give a similar effect, e.g. opoponax or benzoin, or a combination of these) as its main focus.

    Also adding Cerruti 1881 Amber- in fact, an almost cold, creamy, but also credible and smooth rose note is actually stronger or fairly equal to the performance of the amber note in this one

    All day, was going to say this.

    Another to sample is Estee Lauder’s Amber Mystique
