Do you know that? The days are getting shorter, they're getting rainer. The days become cooler, they become more uncomfortable. The days are now short, they are rainy, perhaps also uncomfortable, but not yet cold in winter. The winter cuddly ones who eat themselves into the skin and like to communicate themselves to their surroundings are already roaring to decorate your skin with their often sweet, spicy, often gourmand appearance. But you, who have to dare to go public with them, are the ones who have to explain to your relatives, best friends, acquaintances or colleagues at work why you have to wear such "heavy fragrances" in such mild temperatures, because it happens occasionally that you spray a little too much without wanting to. If an already sufficient spraying impact lands at the base of the neck, this contradicts - for me at least - the usual spraying routine, which is usually characterized by two sprays. Well, it happened. In the still mild autumn season, when you wanted to make yourself and perhaps your surroundings happy with a sweet cuddle, the spraying mechanism was activated too much once and the whole performance is over - a dilemma, isn't it? We want to dare a little more sweetness, a little more spice, a little more "Oriental Studies". Summer is over, so is the time of the newcomers. Well, these can also be sweet, spicy or oriental, but you certainly know what is meant.
I'll say: I want a fragrance that is cuddly, spicy and sweet, but not room-filling or offensive. That's what I want! And yes, there's something I'd like you to meet. But first I have to thank the nice Parfumo Djmatie, who made this introduction possible for me. Therefore a big thank you for your fast fragrance mail, which brought me into the world of exclusive Dior fragrances.
"Ambre Nuit" by Christian Dior: an olfactory revelation - I can and would like to anticipate so much. If you are looking for a cuddler who can decorate your own skin even on milder days without filling whole rooms, without bothering others, you will find what you are looking for here.
The opening captivates with a pleasantly warm combination of an unusually soft bergamot and pepper. This pepper does not prick in the nose, does not function as a snuff substitute, but appears well dosed.
We let a little time pass, let the classic pass - it is one, isn't it? - mature and develop, so that shortly thereafter the component responsible for the naming of this little scent expands the composition. This refers to the wonderful amber note, which is a little sweet, wonderfully powdery, but not a bit animal or scratchy. The pepper continues to support the whole thing with an appropriate seasoning. At the same time the woody notes begin to play. Cedar can be recognized immediately without much effort, because this aromatic sweetness is simply and touchingly unmistakable. But I do not only hear this kind of wood, but also the somewhat darker, a little earthy smelling guaiac wood, which is able to lend the necessary depth to this noble warm combination of different olfactory beauties. The rose listed in the fragrance pyramid is also audible, but only very subtle, finely woven by those woods, powdery amber and fine pepper. In order to smell it, the nose must be brought as close as possible to the skin, as if a curtain were being lifted to see the unknown behind it or - as in this case - to smell it. When I air it, I find not only the rose, but also the patchouli, which has a rather reserved character. And as with the concentrated aroma of the rose, I hear its subtle aroma, which reminds me a little of "woody resinity", and so it fits perfectly into the conglomerate of olfactory nature.
I am overwhelmed, simply overwhelmed, enthusiastic, a bit in love maybe. This noble-powdery, sweet-spicy cuddler is something special, who with all his beauty does not want to show himself to everyone. He's not yelling "Here I am!" out into the wide world. As soon as he moistens the skin, he clings to it long enough, for a whole evening - the time of day that is just right for him. It holds on and with it all the finely dosed aromas, which together result in a perfect balance. Nothing covers up, suppresses or breaks, but everything works together. A warming aura spreads, which can only enchant the nose of those I want to know close - very close - around me. For everyone else, it remains hidden. "Ambre Nuit" would like it that way and now and then I would.
