Memories
There are many ways to write a commentary and reflect your emotions in it. One writes a very informative text, another manages it through humor, still another rips a fragrance, which can be quite - depending on the humor level of the author - very amusing. Personally, I always try to reflect a personal story in my comments, which links up in me when a particular scent grows on me. As a rule, I keep it short - so I invite you to join me on this excursion.

Ambre Nuit. A true poem.

As a child, we often went on holiday to Denmark with the family. That was for me and my older brother the greatest. North Sea, dunes, a holiday home and lots of walks on the beach. My father enjoyed this time very much - being able to spend time with his family. He even hid ambers on the beach that he had previously bought at the beach shop. He told us kids that they were very special and rare stones. Then, when we found these stones that my father had previously distributed, we felt like the greatest treasure hunters on the continent. That amber texture - soft and mysterious. The depth of the ocean and the salt in the air. The sand we walked on is warm. In the evening at the cottage, the grill is lit. You snuggle in, in the yet cool evening temperatures. My father smokes a cigarette.

The scent reminds me of this time. Ambre Nuit - warm, salty amber, amber security, soft rose, well-being and last but not least a touch of tobacco - that's what I perceive. The fragrance does not have to announce itself, it is simply present.

Years later, many things are no longer as they once were. Such is the passage of time. My father no longer smokes a cigarette, ever again. Still, this fragrance will forever remind me of that beautiful time, for which I am endlessly grateful.

I can be alone with you, but I can't be lonely...
This is my first comment on Parfumo and I simply cannot help but dedicate it to this wonderful fragrance. First of all, I'd like to mention that I'd call myself a beginner when it comes to the perfume world, but everyone has to start somewhere. :)

I dedicate this comment to this fragrance, because it has an unbelievable influence on me and as macabre as it may sound to some people - it is a kind of life companion for me. I ordered a bottling of Ambre Nuit a few months ago because I wanted to expand my pool of already tested fragrances and it already has a certain name in the scene. My first impression: "Smells really good...", but it didn't really knock me off my feet. I put it with all the other bottlings that linger in my cupboard and otherwise I didn't pay any further attention to it. Every now and then I made a splash on the back of my hand and in the beginning I didn't even suspect what this scent would have for me later on, but more about that later
Just to add my own olfactory input: Ambre Nuit starts off woody-fruity for me. I can perceive a grapefruit that blends with a light rose and a wintery, Christmassy note... Cinnamon? A glance at the pyramid of scents told me that I wasn't necessarily right about cinnamon, but maybe it's the combination of the different notes that gives me this impression. It smells warm and enveloping, it is present but not obtrusive. It lasts a solid 8-10 hours with me before it becomes quieter and its presence disappears.

But why is this fragrance so important to me now? With it on my skin, I can switch off. He takes me in his arms and shows me that everything is fine. I learned to love it in a private and for me difficult life situation and it helps me to forget the stress and worries for a moment. Since I have been working with perfumes, I have not yet found a fragrance that triggers a similar feeling in me - and I have really acquired some bottles and above all bottlings in the meantime. For some people, such a description of their own feelings may sound absurd, but you can't influence feelings. Ambre Nuit is for me the most wonderful fragrance I have ever known and it will be my companion forever.

To come slowly to the end: due to my previous life experiences I had to realize that love is not necessarily forever. I had to realize that things often come differently and that a real constant in life can never be foreseen. Professionally, as an emergency paramedic in the rescue service, I often had to realize that things can happen at any time that can change the current life situation forever. I had to find out that even an emotionally strong person experiences things he has to nibble on, although he never expected that something like this could happen to him. But if there is one constant in my life, it is that my fire can never be extinguished for you, you beautiful Ambre Nuit.

In everlasting love,
your Jonas

So quiet, so close, so beautiful
Do you know that? The days are getting shorter, they're getting rainer. The days become cooler, they become more uncomfortable. The days are now short, they are rainy, perhaps also uncomfortable, but not yet cold in winter. The winter cuddly ones who eat themselves into the skin and like to communicate themselves to their surroundings are already roaring to decorate your skin with their often sweet, spicy, often gourmand appearance. But you, who have to dare to go public with them, are the ones who have to explain to your relatives, best friends, acquaintances or colleagues at work why you have to wear such "heavy fragrances" in such mild temperatures, because it happens occasionally that you spray a little too much without wanting to. If an already sufficient spraying impact lands at the base of the neck, this contradicts - for me at least - the usual spraying routine, which is usually characterized by two sprays. Well, it happened. In the still mild autumn season, when you wanted to make yourself and perhaps your surroundings happy with a sweet cuddle, the spraying mechanism was activated too much once and the whole performance is over - a dilemma, isn't it? We want to dare a little more sweetness, a little more spice, a little more "Oriental Studies". Summer is over, so is the time of the newcomers. Well, these can also be sweet, spicy or oriental, but you certainly know what is meant.

I'll say: I want a fragrance that is cuddly, spicy and sweet, but not room-filling or offensive. That's what I want! And yes, there's something I'd like you to meet. But first I have to thank the nice Parfumo Djmatie, who made this introduction possible for me. Therefore a big thank you for your fast fragrance mail, which brought me into the world of exclusive Dior fragrances.

"Ambre Nuit" by Christian Dior: an olfactory revelation - I can and would like to anticipate so much. If you are looking for a cuddler who can decorate your own skin even on milder days without filling whole rooms, without bothering others, you will find what you are looking for here.
The opening captivates with a pleasantly warm combination of an unusually soft bergamot and pepper. This pepper does not prick in the nose, does not function as a snuff substitute, but appears well dosed.
We let a little time pass, let the classic pass - it is one, isn't it? - mature and develop, so that shortly thereafter the component responsible for the naming of this little scent expands the composition. This refers to the wonderful amber note, which is a little sweet, wonderfully powdery, but not a bit animal or scratchy. The pepper continues to support the whole thing with an appropriate seasoning. At the same time the woody notes begin to play. Cedar can be recognized immediately without much effort, because this aromatic sweetness is simply and touchingly unmistakable. But I do not only hear this kind of wood, but also the somewhat darker, a little earthy smelling guaiac wood, which is able to lend the necessary depth to this noble warm combination of different olfactory beauties. The rose listed in the fragrance pyramid is also audible, but only very subtle, finely woven by those woods, powdery amber and fine pepper. In order to smell it, the nose must be brought as close as possible to the skin, as if a curtain were being lifted to see the unknown behind it or - as in this case - to smell it. When I air it, I find not only the rose, but also the patchouli, which has a rather reserved character. And as with the concentrated aroma of the rose, I hear its subtle aroma, which reminds me a little of "woody resinity", and so it fits perfectly into the conglomerate of olfactory nature.

I am overwhelmed, simply overwhelmed, enthusiastic, a bit in love maybe. This noble-powdery, sweet-spicy cuddler is something special, who with all his beauty does not want to show himself to everyone. He's not yelling "Here I am!" out into the wide world. As soon as he moistens the skin, he clings to it long enough, for a whole evening - the time of day that is just right for him. It holds on and with it all the finely dosed aromas, which together result in a perfect balance. Nothing covers up, suppresses or breaks, but everything works together. A warming aura spreads, which can only enchant the nose of those I want to know close - very close - around me. For everyone else, it remains hidden. "Ambre Nuit" would like it that way and now and then I would.

My Amber No. 28
.
Dior / Christian Dior - Ambre Nuit
.
.
Lane change
.
A ray of sunshine flashes from the bottle. An enchanting amber cologne of the first moment (fragrance note 10) surrounds itself with bergamot and pulls a trace of grapefruit and a trace as of clove behind it. Into the fragrance life of the perfume. Above it floats the rose. Like a cloud of small, misty, rose-red butterflies. A fine rose cuddled by Patcho⁷uli.

Slowly, the fragrance changes lanes. The fluttering of the butterflies slows down. Heavier. Woods, pock wood and cedar, change the amber and take away its lightness. The scent becomes damp, warm and spicy, heavier and darker and darker. And takes on the restrained wingbeat of a moth. Hovering over roses. (7,0)

Less and less becomes the fragrance. He is looking for a new way. Light, not dry. Light, almost dirty. Light yet moist dull. Light amber brown with delicate smoke. Until even the heavy particles evaporate and a fine residue remains close to the skin. Scented for delicate, velvety skin. (8,5) It is still enough to say goodbye. This lightness we mourn (and only this lightness)
and the transience.

Bonne Nuit. Ambre Nuit.

One of the few
I have a 30ml. Sharings-sensation of a perfume and was very enthusiastic! Lately it hasn't happened to me often that I put a perfume on my WL.
Ambre Nuit is a very noble and refined fragrance that sounds so elegant! I can recognize cherry chords, amber and rose in it - everything is so harmoniously and beautifully intertwined. It constantly evokes emotional warmth when I wear it. On my skin it lasts the whole 9-10 hours! A record in comparison with his brother "Bois D'Argent".
This is an absolute unisex scent. It is not sweet, not spiky, not dry, not "eau de colognisch" which means it is suitable for both men and women.
I don't think I will wear the Ambre Nuit every day, but on cool evenings in spring and now in autumn I will snuggle into it more often. It is generally a successful, solid fragrance. One of my few favourites.

This has become my signature scent. Moderate sillage - just about right for warmer months, and great longevity - upto 8 hours.

I get shades of salty and rosy vibes, a smidgen of cola that stays behind the scene. It's an elixir of sensual and wispy amber and rose.

Airy honeyed rose/spicy supple woods/sensual sweet skin. What will it smell like on you? Your mileage may vary. A stunner. Try beforehand.

It has this familiar “tuxedo night” vibe that I rather avoid, but it’s so darn well done. I’m torn with this one.
