The favourite cuddly blanket
At first you can perceive an intense and powerful fresh ethereal herbaceous note, which reminds me a little bit of eucalyptus and my research showed that this fragrance characteristic can originate from myrtle.

At the same time the myrtle blends with a fine, sweetly accentuated Mediterranean nuance, which gives the top note a pleasant softness and is due to the lavender.

A little bit later, the idea that was already perceptible in the copnote unfolded completely.

A delightful lovely creamy note is now perceptible, but by no means slaying, but pleasantly fluffy, even discreetly buttery and comes from the Bourbon vanilla appears
The Bourbon Vanilla is surrounded by a very beautiful, quite intense, from the inside warming balsamic sweet and quite slightly spicy note and takes care that the fragrance despite the fluffigen characteristic appears wonderfully dense and engaging and one is already very inclined to light a small candle, to snuggle up in his favorite blanket and simply enjoy the fragrance and let things just be as they are at this moment.

In the background, very softly above the skin, a very fine, soft, aromatic nuance reminiscent of black pepper can be perceived, which in my opinion is responsible for the fact that the scent does not drift into the dull - sweetish, but appears wonderfully smooth and comes from the nutmeg
In the last 3.5 hours, a nice soft balsamic, very slightly sweet, vanilla-like note can be perceived, which wonderfully maintains the cuddle effect and is surrounded by a fine sweet spicy note and ensures that this wonderful aura is still a little potentized and ensures a beautiful finish and the Peru balsam in interaction with the Tolu balsam and ambergris comes, but I have only tipped on Tolu balsam, ambergris and small trace of white musk.

Unfortunately I could not perceive coumarin, but I can very well imagine that this fragrance component was used for background music.

Overall, the fragrance lasts 8.5 hours on my skin.

The Sillage is designed in the first 2 hours in such a way that one is perceived very clearly at the 2.5 meters and then oscillates 2 hours on a very clearly perceptible whole arm length, before it is reduced to the end of the smell in quiet steps.

I would like to express my sincere thanks to our perfume "ParfumAholic" for the bottling.

smooth, sweet, creamy, dreamy (and masculine!)
Those aren't words you usually see together, are they? In any case, I am surprised to be using them to describe a perfume I enjoy as much as Ambre Precieux, a perfume that, simply put, reminds me of old-timey men's cologne. (Is that due to the lavender/nutmeg combination? I have so much to learn!)

It projects well with just a few sprays and lasts all day. It has quickly become one of my many "comfort" scents.

Musty amber & resins lacking personality.
This was on my to try list for a very long time based on the positive reviews, and the fact that I love orientals, so I was really disappointed and quite surprised by what I experienced. I found it to be a flat amber/resin/musty scent, lacking personality. Oh well, this just doesn't work for me. I think I must be one of the very, very few that didn't fall in love with it.

Sweet, rich, powdery and classy.
A sweet, rich and powdery amber that's not overwhelming and perfect for most any occasion. It has a "classy" smell and would be excellent for the office or a night out.

Although it's listed as being for men, this is, without question, a unisex fragrance. Both genders could pull this off without a problem.

Sweet powdery amber!
Sweet, warm and smooth amber. And yes, it's powdery. Sweet powder.

Not spicy as Ambre Sultan, this is close to Montale's Blue Amber.

Wonderful sillage and lasting power.

Suitable for both men and woman.

Intensely powdery vanilla-amber creates a dense balsamic scent cloud. Spicy undertones with a hint of herbal lavender freshness.

Old school, classic type of amber fragrance. Opening is herbal but settles down into warm and cozy vanillic amber scent. Balsamic and sweet.

Very warm, ambery and smooth. Nicely blended. Vanillic, and somehow a tad more gourmand than it could be. Maybe the ultime is less so.

Thick, creamy soft, warm and round. Light (lavender) herbal note at the beginning is soon replaced by sweet unobtrusive ambery spiciness.
