Reviews of Ambre Impérial

A beautiful amber we have there, with a lot of tonka. Performances are average.

Yes, it is an amber, but there is something like orange candy and hair spray with it. So it smells like someone who just put on hairsray and then a generic amber fragrance is eating orange gummy bears or something. Gets less interesting to me as it dries diwn. Projects fine. Lasts well, both as i would expect in the genre.

Starts off with a warm, buttery amber and then turns drier and sweeter. Later, I get some smokiness, but there's not oud or incense listed in the notes, so might be the benzoin with the woods?

Projection is persistently strong, so go easy on the sprays. This is a heavy, serious, cold-weather scent.

Longevity is good, lasting 8-10 hours.

Smoothness- this is the core concept that runs through his creation like a golden thread. The opening notes bis a smooth and rounded amber, in the opening blast a touch fresh courtesy of the bergamot. This amber is - well, smooth and soft and warm.

The drydown adds a - smooth, you know? - tonka impression, and the base a slightly waxy benzoin.

There are also woodsy moments, which come and go from the heart notes on, and add some additional interest.

The performance delivers moderate sillage, excellent projection and a stupendous fourteen hours of longevity.

A bit unoriginal but safely designed as a crowd pleaser with enormous longevity, the main drawback of this wintery scent is its generic, somewhat synthetically impersonal nature. Worth trying if you like amber fragrances, but I wouldn't hold my breath. 2.75/5
