Amber Without Amber
This scent goes on with a warm kind of ambergris feel but also spiky (cedar) at the same time. It's aggressive and has a nice solid projection at a few feet. It billows around you but it doesn't overwhelm. After 30 minutes or so, the cedar withdraws and the scent becomes the warm amber of Amber Neu, which I love. Oddly enough, I can't pinpoint the notes that create this scent -- ambergris or stryax isn't listed, so perhaps this is opponax? I don't get any of the tree scents here, nor the geranium (for which I am grateful). The mandarin helps create the warmth and the summery amber aroma, but it is blended so well that you don't ever get it as a separate note.

Amber Teutonic lasts all day, gradually fading to a warm amber skin scent. I do enjoy it, and if you do not have an ambergris scent, this is top-notch. It does differ from Amber Neu in its initial aggression, but they are similar enough that it's probably not a great investment to own both. I am biased -- my first experience with an ambergris scent that worked for me was Amber Neu, so I'm going to get it first. Also, although I love DS&Durga, Atelier (Amber Neu) is a bit cheaper.

In short, a good quality ambergris-style scent. If I wasn't already spoken for in this department, I would be getting this (well, eventually as I'm still not rich).

More tropical than Teutonic
Being the forest lover that I am, as soon as I heard about this fragrance, I bought it blindly. When will I learn that that's never a good idea?! I could have bought a backup of Bowmaker's instead. To me this fragrance smells coconutty from the get-go. It's really annoying. I was never a huge fan of amber, and this one smells very much like many ambers out there--the kind of amber that seems a bit like play-doh. It's the same amber I get from L'Artisan's Amber, Mona di Orio...lots of others. That isn't a bad thing in and of itself, I mean, it's called AMBER Tuetonic for goodness sake, so you should totally expect amber. The weird, creamy coconuttiness bothers me and seems really out of place. I am not getting these wonderful woods that are in the notes. It's all drowning in this common amber with coconut. There is also a citrusy note that annoys me. So basically, I am not reminded of any type of old forest, much less a European one. Really no forest at all, come to think of it. Anyway, not my cup of tea, although I tend to enjoy a lot of this house's fragrances. I would love to know if I am the only one who is getting this creamy coconut note.
