With four florals, three tropical fruits, two citrus, and gourmand notes in the base, Ambush is pleasant. I've read that it has sandalwood, but I don't smell it. I do smell pralines in the base and other notes sufficient for grounding. I find the name odd because I associate woods and animalic notes and resins with the concept of ambush by fragrance. Don't get me wrong, this fruity floral can seduce, but it doesn't lay in wait. The florals don't cloy, the fruits aren't too sweet. It's a straightfoward beauty, down to earth and appealing. If it ambushes, it does so with open arms.
