my better angels share
Hello you fragrance freaks,
today I have times a fragrance tested, which was sent to me without request for it. Here is my impression:
The first sniff:
And very obviously so. The sweetish spice does not hide but shows itself in its full glory. In combination with a few other fragrance notes, which now also find the beeline to my nose, meets me initial a gourmand.
Baked goods, whose dough must have been tossed in a bowl with lots of aromatic spices, like the listed ginger, and coumarin. The scent then gets warmer and warmer, where I suspect vanilla has its fingers in the pie. It ensures that the spiciness doesn't dominate the scent too much, so it can be described more as gourmand than spicy. The incense is also noticeably strong on the nose. The fragrance thus gets an antique, not outdated character, which I appreciate very much.
The fragrance drives only for a short time this spicy-aromatic track, then I make neat Ambra ausfindig (fortunately, otherwise the name Ambre Narguilé would probably be misleading) After about 10 minutes I sniff namely the typical Ambra character : something tobacco, dry, whereby the fragrance comes along powdery, almost dusty dry, while he stubbornly sticks to its warm basic character.
Meanwhile, I find the perfume to be aphrodisiac now that the spiciness has subsided a bit. Ambergris is really the star of the fragrance, which from this development becomes unique for me. Beautiful!
After 15 minutes, I then sense a completely different impact, something floral.... that must be then probably the orchid.
What I do not perceive in the fragrance, by the way, is tonka and sesame... the go on my skin unfortunately totally under.
The rum isn't really prominent here either, it's totally masked by the cinnamon, much like it is in Kilian's Angels Share, which I didn't like at all, by the way.
The scent progression is rather linear, even if I could definitely detect one or the other development, especially at the beginning.
Unfortunately, I find that the bottle does not do justice to its content, because I find it quite simple and unspectacular in comparison.
I really like this perfume because of the spicy sweetness. I like the dry heat that the scent gives off, it makes it unique to me. It won't end up on my wishlist for now, but eventually my bottling will come to an end and you know what that means...
