The most amazing thing is a "not."
What's that, a Montale? Cause right after I spray it on, I smell... nothing. Of course relatively seen - that is: for Montale conditions. The fragrance takes about a minute to get off to a serious start. Only the rose geranium is already groping its way; scratchy, but also with something ethereal and biting. A hint of vanilla creeps behind.

Once the journey has begun, I find the association with cold ointment described above understandable, but it seems rather moderate to me. Also quite natural medicine. Plantago Bronchial Balsam from Wala maybe. The impression is probably fed by the funny, ethereal-fresh rose geranium. In contrast, I find a gently sweetened adhesive plaster note in the phase following much more noticeable. Besides, it smells a little like cough syrup. Prospan or so.

Amber - joah. The slightly sugary one of the middle morning should be him, flanked by a bitter trace that I do not come on the same one. Kind of herbaceous potato. I don't know, I don't know. Anyway, Mr Amber takes the sweeter direction around noon, I think again of plasters, whitish-sweetish. That's odd. A rough, scratchy base now also refers to patchouli. Today the vanilla-patchouli-combi seems to be a bit grumpy, "mona-esk" so to speak.

In the course of time it becomes more familiar again: Vanilla intervenes more courageously and continues to form the bracket around various amberies, which on the one hand remind me somewhat of plastic and wax and on the other hand do not neglect a certain (patchouli)-dustiness. This final chord accompanies me into the evening.

Conclusion: The most amazing thing about the fragrance is that it doesn't scream like other Montales. Otherwise I find it exactly as thrilling as the above explanations sound.

I thank MisterE for the rehearsal.

Amber bomb par excellence
Blue Amber from the house Montale

First, briefly about the house of Montale.
Pierre Montale, the house's head of fragrance, spends 20 years in Saudi Arabia as a court perfumer. When he returned to France in 2003, he continued to serve Arab houses with his fragrances and then opened the first store from his brand. Montale reflects his time in the Orient in his fragrances. For the Orient is his inspiration and influenced by his work there, he develops fragrances that are directly and indirectly reminiscent of the Orient.

So also this fragrance...

I have so far mur Intense Cafe of Montale tested so this is the second fragrance of Montale I could try.
In the top note, the fragrance is not yet quite noticeable. I personally find the prelude not necessarily very fresh but a certain freshness with a spicy undertone is already present. On the day where I have worn the test I found it first ok. I did not have to change clothes ? (I spray mostly on the clothes)

In the course of the fragrance develops simply heavenly in an oriental-spicy direction that I already find in the car on the way to work that it smells really good.

Throughout the day I have a warm, spicy amber note with a hint of vanilla in the nose. In the drydown, the fragrance had me then completely under its spell.

And then I knew, this is the fragrance I had hoped for Ambre Sultan. The fragrance that reminds you of the Orient holidays. I had previously tested Ambre Sultan by Serge Lutens what I found quite bad. Blue Amber is on the one hand similar but has a different scent. When I close my eyes I have flahbacks from my holidays in the Emirates, Oman and Morocco. That's how much Pierre Montale has captured the orient in his fragrance. It reminds me especially of the hustle and bustle of the big market in Istanbul, the souk in Dubai and Marrakesh and once again I have wanderlust. A comforting warmth runs through me and my olfactory buds rejoice.

The day after, I smell the fragrance on my coat. I am blown away by this wonderful, great scent. And from then on I knew I had to have this.
Durability, projection and sillage are bombastic.

Amber I have very much in fragrances. With vanilla and musk, these are my top 3.
Grand Soir is a wonderful sweet amber/vanilla. Ambre Nuit a powdery, cozy amber and with Blue Amber a spicy-oriental amber. Here the vanilla is rather in the background.

The fragrance is absolutely unisex and I would assign this more for autumn and winter.

Thank you for reading

Stormy reception
Today I picked a midnight blue bottle from the shining Montale sea of bottles because the colour appealed to me.

But I sprayed carefully because fragrances of this brand can surprise in any direction.

And promptly an acetonic smell mixed with alcohol and a few drops of gasoline hits me.

I'm irritated, but not scared.
My children's nose liked to sniff at acetone-containing nail polish removers, and even the smell of petrol always attracted me.
Moreover, this melange is transparent - but admittedly very peculiar.

After I had trimmed enough, this extraordinary note vanished again and made way for spiced flowers.
Blue Amber becomes soft, powdery and loose.
Patch and unsweet vanilla now unfold their oriental side.
The amber of the name stands elegantly but discreetly in the background.

A special prelude to a powdery oriental theme.

Definitely interesting.

A strong appearance
Blue Amber begins citric - herbaceous, but also flowery - creamy.

I would like to express my sincere thanks to our perfuma "Lenchen81" for the sample.

The first thing you can perceive is a very intense citric, slightly herbaceous note, which also stings a little bit in the nose and is due to the bergamot.

In the background a full floral nuance can be perceived, which also brings a beautiful creamy aura and comes from the rose geranium.

This constellation is perceptible on my skin for 20 minutes before the heart note unfolds.

Now an intense aromatic-spicy note can be perceived, which gives the heart note a strong, distinctive accent and is due to the coriander.

The coriander is surrounded by a fine sweetish, slightly tart note, which gives the fragrance a pleasant depth and is derived from vetiver.

The heart note is perceptible on my skin for 4 hours before the base asserts itself.

A very dense and full sweet-spicy note can now be perceived, which gives the base very intense cuddly attributes and is due to the amber.

At the same time a fine creamy, discreetly sweet, slightly floral scent is perceptible, which merges with the but into a whole and comes from the vanilla.

These two notes are underpinned by an earthy nuance, which is responsible for giving the fragrance a nice depth and a pleasant finish, and is derived from patchouli.

Blue Amber is a wonderful companion in the autumn and winter months, for the woman and man over 30 who are looking for a very distinctive, strongly changing fragrance.

In total the fragrance lasts 8 hours on my skin.

From the beginning, the Sillage is designed to be clearly perceived at one arm's length, and this is maintained for 3.5 hours before it is reduced in calm steps until the fragrance finally fades away completely.

Baby Powder Bomb
When I sprayed this fragrance on I expected a soft vanilla effusion. Instead, I got the feeling I slipped with the baby powder can. Among the powdery scents I've been allowed to smell so far, this one takes the throne here. In the beginning you smell a spice in combination with the powder, but after an hour the scent settles and what remains is a distinct powder smell that lasts for hours. If you go up close with your nose and inhale strongly, you will smell some vanilla, which fits well.
It all sounds very intimidating now, but if you like powdery scents, Blue Amber is just the thing. I personally find the fragrance too intense at first, but after 1-2 hours it takes on an intensity that I find very pleasant. After 10 hours night shift, only a gentle breath of baby powder was left.
In my opinion it is not a masculine fragrance, but it can be worn by men who do not have to compensate for their lack of masculinity with perfumes.

I dug this! Old-fashioned floral, fruit, and amber. VERY powdery and mature. Inarguably feminine! I'm gonna try to pull it off anyway.

not a blue scent in the classical sense. powdery amber, slight aquatic notes and vanillic wood. Great longevity as usual but a bit synthetic

When the initial eucalyptus-like notes fade out, the chocolaty powdery amber-patchouli note combo works quite deliciously.

One of my favorite ambers. Sweet, longlasting and powdery. Bears striking resemblances with HdP 114. Great one from Montale.
