Lightly sweetened tea scent
Indeed, a fine oolong tea note immediately surrounds me: slightly tart, slightly floral. Bergamot gives some freshness, but is not outstanding. - When did I last drink oolong? Yet there's a filled tea tin on the shelf. So it's tea time this afternoon. - After a while, I also notice a slight smoky note. You can already tell: 3 x light. But clearly and well perceptible Oolong.

The tea note lasts about an hour for me. That's when I also have to direct my nose already in the direction of the wrist, to investigate further, how it goes on. It becomes warm and spicy, incense, I think, in a rather restrained way.

In fact, "Amber Empire" turns up the heat after a while. It becomes warm, spicy and sweet. While the base doesn't reach the vibrancy of a freshly sprayed fragrance, I do notice it when I'm moving around even if I don't put my nose to it. This is also when I feel reminded of the base of my previously commented fragrance "Ambra del Nepal": soft, warm, spicy, light caramel, soft woody notes. It doesn't get quite as sweet and not quite as caramel, but there's no denying a kinship. This is all the more surprising when I then notice that in "Amber Empire" amber is not listed at all, but myrrh.

Conclusion: I like "Amber Empire", but a "must-in-the-collection" does not arise. Perhaps it is also a bit awkward to test two amber fragrances (even if one is gefaket [New German]) one after the other. So: if you prefer a teen note to start a fragrance than an herbaceous one, and if you prefer it less sweet and caramel, go for "Amber Empire". He is at all the altogether finer and more elegant fragrance.

I thank Lenni1985 for the test opportunity.
