Stylish blend of fresh & heavy
Nishane are probably the big winners of last year. Especially thanks to Hacivat, which was hyped by many and also became very famous here. If a brand has a cashcow, the other creations of the brand usually benefit as well. Also here. Wulong Cha, Fan Your Flames, Ani and also others have come to the fore a bit and enjoy a huge fan base and a lot of attention. Also this Ambra Calabria. This niche Turkish brand will be pleased. So far, this Ambra Calabria is my first of this brand that I have tested and bought. Probably won't be the last one I tested, though.
A really expensive brand is this one. Especially for people who are rather less in the niche. The regular price for this Ambra Calabria is 170 euros, mind you, 50ml. You get him but more often on sale as many niche fragrances. Between 70 and 110 euros is already a fair price, for which you can take him with a good conscience. Some of this brand even cost 215 euros a 50ml. As I said: Checks times the offers and strikes at the right moment to.

This Ambra Calabria has made me very curious for a long time. i like the idea of mixing heavy notes like amber and vanilla with fresh notes. Is also a tough challenge as they are complete opposites. Such not-quite-fresh scents with heavy approaches are predestined for a great summer evening, summer nights, late summer days, mild summer days or just in spring and fall. If you don't want to miss out on heavy scents in the summer. Even though it's listed above as a citrusy-fresh scent: I would rather wear it less in the heat. For me, that heavy amber sweetness sets in a bit in the opening. But for this a perfect fragrance, when the evening slowly dawns and the great heat becomes a little milder.
The picture of the Falkon here is no longer current. There Nishane has neatly touched up. The old ones look really cheap and boring. The new ones have it going on: gold lettering and heavy gold lid. Noble, luxurious and simply great. Plus this great bottle comes in a stylish box. Absolutely niche-worthy and the price accordingly in contrast to other brands.

Still a short fragrance description, which is quite simple and quickly made in this fragrance: the opening starts fresh, but there is a heavy component already present, which to the base is of course still strengthened. The start is fresh with bergamot and tart green accents, also galbanum is well perceptible. Interesting mix and anything but ordinary. The notes from the base set in extreeemly quickly, so the name amber is absolutely appropriate here. Amber is for me also the main actor in this fragrance. But vanilla is also very present and provides sweetness for a pleasant vibe without being too sticky. Very classy and kept serious. But the chart below shows correctly: this fragrance is very balanced: citrusy, fresh, creamy, spicy, sweet, green. A little bit of everything and great balance. It's also correctly rated 50-50 masculine-feminine. 100% unisex, even though there are 80% male owners registered here. Ladies, test him out!
The performance I find not as bad as readable in some statements. The first hours he is very present. Also the durability is extremely acceptable with a few hours. Overall, for this type of fragrance a durschscnittliche to good performance, which is absolutely optimal in warmer temperatures.

Overall, a great fragrance that you like to smell and is also very unique. Who is still looking for a fragrance for late summer: try this one. This fits many occasions and is almost always usable except in extreme heat and extreme cold. A fragrance that enriches a diverse collection.

Lemon grove....

I bought Ambra Calabria in a small boutique in Italy. Nishane's testers stand between embroidered beautiful tops on the shelf. That pretty salesgirl sprays me with Amber Calabria.
In my mind a slope with lemon trees, on which thick fleshy sun-yellow lemons hang. The dried-up grass pokes in the hollow of the knee. In between dark green rich cabbage, which smells cheerfully fresh like juicy leaves. In the further course I see candied and sugared yellow lemon slices. The sugar crystals are reflected in the light: hmmm: fine vanilla!
I am quite torn back and forth to describe the further course of fragrance . The scent fluctuates between gourmandig green, and sharp green. The lemons have disappeared in the background, smell rather bergamot mixed with vanilla. A consistently tasteful office fragrance for which I have received fine compliments.

Citrusy light, tart-green, vanilla-creamy.
That I like fragrances in which light and heavy scents are in perfect balance with each other should be no secret. I own "Naxos" from the house of Xerjoff, for example, in which tangy citrus prevents an olfactory sticky-sweet honey existence. "Uden" from the Shooting Stars collection also knows how to prevent a too heavy vanilla-amber combination with the help of grapefruit and other tangy notes, and in "Allure Homme Édition Blanche" yet another component, leather, provides a very special twist within this fluffy citrus-vanilla composition. This special, albeit coming about in a different way, can also be found in "Ambra Calabria". At first sniff I hear here again citrus effervescence, which is supplemented only a short time later by vanilla, amber and musk - a familiar, often smelled fragrance concept so?

Well ... not quite.

The special feature of this Nishane fragrance lies in its green impact, which is generated by just green leaves and probably also jasmine, fortunately only very discreetly emerging. In the end, the result is a citrusy, light, discreetly green-hard, well-dosed creamy-sweet good-mood scent, whose spring and summer suitability need not be argued about. Vanilla, amber and musk prevent a citrus-fresh triviality, which we already know from other summer fragrances. In return, the bergamot provides a light vanilla, not too stuffy amber and not too sultry musk. The green notes form the special twist, round everything off, miss a little astringency and in the end, above all, uniqueness.

The sillage is just right for the warm days. No one is annoyed or olfactory bludgeoned. I would even almost think that you can not overspray this fragrance at all. The durability is very good on my skin, by the way. Sprayed on at noon, I could still perceive the fragrance late in the evening without any problems.

Very helpful Review 11  
You are THE one people hardly talk about, but your potential is considerable...
Hello everyone,

today, late at night, I would like to talk about a fragrance that, to be honest, is hardly ever talked about these days and it's about Ambra Calabria
The fragrance is simple and special!
For me, it's a fusion of Wūlóng Chá Extrait de Parfum (opening) and immediately afterwards "Shooting Stars - Nio | XerJoff" and then "Shooting Stars - Kobe | XerJoff", but without the oud and neroli. And by the way, it always shows off its own merits.

This green note, in combination with the coriander, amber and galbanum, results in a timeless, clean and super beautiful mix from many great worlds of perfume art.

I have known the fragrance since its release almost 10 years ago and many fragrances experience a brutally modest time - in the sense that they lose their charm, their identity and their performance. My personal opinion on this (!), over the years this fragrance has "not undergone any major and noticeable change" and actually this is really less the case nowadays.

Compared to certain big hitters of the house like the Nefs or the Mana (for example), it is on the quiet and gentle side of life - in terms of performance. But I like that a lot!

Why?

Because when I'm at work, on the plane or in the car with others, I'm certainly not going to NERVE anyone with my fragrance and I really credit Ambra Calabria with this green/clean gentle nature!

I can only say that it may also be very well received for this reason and this in "every age group"!
It is a UNISEX fragrance, it works for both men and women, although I see a tendency towards the male camp (personal opinion).

Very few (unfortunately) see its true potential!

If I really wasn't convinced, I wouldn't recommend it to you!

And now have a nice day/evening, or whatever you read this review, LG the Benny
_______

(Now the same as almost always - because it's true!)

Now on the subject of luxury:

As you can see in my profile, among other things, I have really smelled many fragrances and there are fragrances where you smell a certain (partly) strong synthetic and you notice quite quickly that some fragrance houses go for quantity rather than quality and there are some where you just realize "oh come on, let's put more + better in" and you can smell this at the end of the day.

Very briefly on the subject of OVP, bottle, sprayer:

I'll make it short, I give it a 9 out of 10 in every category and I know very well that tastes are very different. So if you honestly rate this with a 7 or less... - PUH. Beautiful and very valuable lid, beautiful timeless flacon design etc. .... so I find it very difficult to rate it differently and I am not saying this because I like a brand or not!
Now a quick word on the subject of my opinion:

I am not sponsored, influenced by anyone, receive money or anything else. I approach the subject of parfumo as I am, honestly, everything else is not mine. My real personal opinion is worth a lot to me and maybe I hope ;) that you notice that. If I don't like something, e.g. OVP, bottle, sprayer or H/S, then I communicate this!

Is it really light or rather heavy?
Hm, citrus-vanilla is the good in any case! But feel him as rather heavier initially also very sweet. Is that really bad? Think not, but am really undecided whether I would wear the hot summer days. But eg on a warm summer evening in the restaurant he would somehow bring a Mediterranean touch :-)

The opening is green and citrusy. The bergamot remains, a soft resinous amber enters. It then becomes more creamy and spicy but still fresh.

A two-phase scent, opening with a green-'fresh spicy' vibe that turns into a nice moderately sweet citrus. Subpar sillage & longevity.

The green citrus opening was very off putting, but then it settled down to amber. Average performance. Change in tone is difficult to wear.
