The sparkling cellar beer
Don't worry, that perfume doesn't smell like a cellar beer at all But what made me think of the title is first of all the beautiful colour, which goes in the direction of amber and comes quite close to a cellar beer. And the opening of the perfume, but more about that in a moment.

I smelled Ambre Nuit for the first time at the christening of my godchild in Poland. From the first whiff that blew past me, I thought to myself: this fragrance is perfection.

The location where we celebrated the baptism was an old primary school in a small village in Poland, which was surrounded by fields and trees. Poland still has a lot of small and rural villages, which mostly consist of only a few houses, so there is still a lot of forest there.
For me it was the first time that I assigned a fragrance to a location or an event in my life. You usually know it from songs that take you back to a place you associate with that song. But here it was the perfume. I see me and my grandpa sitting together in April on the former playground, drinking a beer or two together, enjoying nature and just talking about everything. The resin just drips out of some trees and you could almost think that we sit there for so long that we can watch the formation of single amber stones.

When I was back in Germany, I ordered it of course directly on the Dior site - it arrived the same week. Of course I couldn't help but try it out directly on myself. Again a surprise: in the opening the grapefruit comes out so effervescent, which gives it a citric touch. It's almost like opening a Fanta Grapefruit, I had exactly the same feeling with Ambre Nuit.

Ambergris is known for being very sweet and heavy. This perfume, however, is a fresh ambergris, which is only subtly sweet and perfectly balanced. The rose petals just float past you as if they were caressing your whole body, but don't make the fragrance look feminine at all.

H&S are very good on my skin. But I have to say that I worked a lot with body lotions at that time, because I had to fight with dry skin. But still the scent comes on his 8 hours with me, meanwhile also without lotion. In my opinion he is not a compliment catcher, at least I only got a few of them. But I think that is not the sense of the perfume. I wear it because it is still my favourite scent and it fits perfectly to my personality and I always remember the nice day with my grandpa

You're so beautiful
Otherwise I cannot begin the description about this fragrance. With you everything fits, no too pushy, no I am the star, whereas actually you are the secret star for me.

The combination of bergamot and grapefruit looks so playfully light and fitting. As my girlfriend said, there is nothing more beautiful than lying in your arms and smelling the scent. I can only confirm this myself, the fragrance makes you dream, forget and let me forget the stress of everyday life a little bit.

He will probably be too reserved for parties or birthdays. Perfect for dates or days at the office or at work.
Thanks for letting me try you!

My Amber No. 28

Dior / Christian Dior - Ambre Nuit
.
.
Lane change
.
A ray of sunlight flashes from the bottle. An enchanting amber cologne of the first moment (fragrance 10) surrounds itself with bergamot, leaving a trail of grapefruit and a hint of clove. Into the fragrant life of perfume. The rose hovers above it. Like a cloud of small, hazy, rose-red butterflies. A fine rose cuddled by patchouli
Slowly the scent changes the track. The fluttering of the moths slows down. Heavier. Woods, pockwood and cedar, change the amber and take away its lightness. The scent becomes moist, warm and spicy, heavier and darker and darker. And gets the restrained wing beat of a moth. Floating over roses. (7,0)

The smell is getting less and less. He's finding a new way. Light, not dry. Light, almost dirty. Light but damp and dull. Lightamber brown with delicate smoke. Until even the heavy particles evaporate, leaving a fine residue on the skin. Fragrance for soft, velvety skin. (8,5) It is enough to say goodbye. We mourn this lightness after and the transience.

Bonne Nuit. Ambre Nuit.

My unforgettable night of amber...
It must smell like that... in the Garden of Eden... I don't know if it is too feminine, but this fragrance just blew me away today when I first sprayed it on! This slightly rosy beginning wrapped in pink pepper simply dreamlike! After some time a spicy woody amber/cedar smell becomes noticeable. I just don't know what to say. I have never experienced such a successful fragrance, you are probably floating somewhere in the Garden of Eden, bedded on roses... A true masterpiece from Christian Dior ! Definitely a unisex fragrance with a very feminine side ! But let's be honest, every man has a feminine side and this fragrance reflects this 1 to 1 again completely! My first perfume I fell in love with... and I thought there was no such thing. Whether it's well received, whether I get compliments or negative statements... It is MY scent that I want to smell on me and with which I feel comfortable. I think only perfumos can understand that :-)

10 out of 10 points !

You're the only thing that grows when I waste it.
You start out quite citric, and it's nothing special.
You also do not grow beyond yourself and are simple.

But I cannot live without you, because I love you so much, you little bergamot-rose-amra-cedar beauty.

I want to have you always with me, you are an ease in simplicity, my speciality.

You are uncomplicated, in summer, in winter, when working, when partying, always!

You're the only thing that grows when I waste it. Is it worth it? You're expensive, you know that! Yeah, it's still worth it. We belong to each other, forever!

Rose & Amber
This Ambre Nuit is an extremely refined perfume, which oozes delicacy, quality and a certain air of elegant femininity, but that does not fool your name, this is a tribute to the rose and not to amber (resin) as I thought.

For me, this perfume has three notable ingredients, bergamot, rose and amber, the others, or are not, or I do not perceive them and they are only to provide ephemeral nuances. It is a linear aroma with two clear phases, the beginning and the rest of the fragrance. From the beginning the rose and amber are quite clear, only that, at the beginning they are wrapped in a thin layer of fresh and sparkling bergamot, which cushions the fragrant rose and the sweetness of amber, to make the fragrance something more refreshing in your start. This start is short-lived and then there is only rose and amber, but do not think of a resinous, sweet and woody amber, because the shots do not go there, it is gray amber, and it feels half dusty, semi-sweet and vaporous, very mystical and gaseous , creating an aura around, elegant and refined, exquisite, an ideal complement to a deep velvety, beautiful rose. A perfume of roses without more incentive, yes, very beautiful and elegant.

It has a more than acceptable performance, of good longevity, between 7 or 8 hours, with a moderate projection at all times, it is not a beast, but it has enough to be noticed.

It is a unisex perfume, but it seems a bit more feminine to me, but well, to taste the colors, I will dress it equally until it is over. Perfume of fresh and temperate climates, and for the night, although it could also be used during the day.

Regarding the perfume itself, it is a beautiful aroma that oozes quality, but it is not worth what it costs even as a joke, it is a beautiful and elegant rose without more, I do not know what is exclusive about this fragrance to ask € 300 for it. If you have money left over and you like it, go ahead, but everyone else try it before buying, there are aromas of rose, in the market, much cheaper, everything is a matter of finding the right one.

Ambre cinnamon
Fragrance impressions can apparently be very individual... i have had a 10ml bottle of Ambre Nuit for ages, which gets a chance here and there.

Pearls before swine, I tell you...

I almost have a guilty conscience that I can't appreciate this little nipple the way Ambre Nuit might have deserved it. Because I recognize the good idea, and the beautiful design. But unfortunately that alone is not enough...

Because with me the whole time such a cinnamon-like overdose comes through thereby, which spoils the smell unfortunately for me. I couldn't even say that it smells bad, but somehow the cinnamon annoys me again and again, when I get a surge of scent.

So it's like, mhhhh full good... )) oh moment, there it is again :N

So a back and forth between I like it, I don't like it. I think the lightly stinging cinnamon impression I get wrongly from amber, pink pepper and the woods... or maybe additionally from the subtle grapefruit spiciness?

So all in all a good fragrance, I think it's cool how spices, sweet notes and woods have created a fragrance that can build up a certain tension and is anything but trivial.
And I think it's really well made for a unisex scent, because it's good for both man and woman, and works well for both.
There is already a little artistry necessary to get something like that...

But I miss it the cinnamon aspect says unfortunately lastingly.

Unconditional test recommendation, but don't buy it blindly if you're not always so good with cinnamon, even if it's praised!

So quiet, so close, so beautiful
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.

Seduction in 125 or 250ml
Since the comments to this fragrance are very sparse here, I dare to tell you my own little story about this miracle here.
Totalpled, smelled - wow. This was the first fragrance in my collection (if only a sample) to rise out of my perfume segment and look down on the "traditional" designer mass fragrances.
Since I never intended to buy Dior Ambre Nuit at this time, simply because the price is mildly expressed, somewhat elevated, my 10ml stayed very long in the back of my collection and I didn't even wear it, but sprayed a few droplets on my hand every now and then to have some of this miracle at home for hours on end
2 weeks ago there was a "stupid" coincidence - stupid not for my nose but for my purse, because I bought myself on ebay a still 2/3 filled 250ml bottle at a very good price. Much more than I'll ever need from this perfume but now I finally don't have to use it so sparingly anymore.
I wouldn't have bought this new one, because Dior "wisely" fills its bottles from the Privè line so big that the next 2 generations will get something out of it.
I read once that there are also 40ml bottles of them, but they should be very hard to get, because they are only available in France(?).

Seconds after spraying, a pleasant, fresh warmth comes over me. This may sound like a contradiction in terms, but the spicy, slightly peppery & aromatic fragrance lends the fragrance a very special "warmth" - one that comes closer & tempts you to cuddle. Despite this, Ambre Nuit has a lightness and is by no means a heavy fragrance for the winter). The "warmth" is rather symbolic in the head, just as I have it with La Nuit de l'homme when I smell it. Simply spicy, aromatic, romantic, very sensual and yet masculine. At Ambre Nuit I get a touch of a Coca Cola, but this is in no way negative or inferior, but meant in a very luxurious way.

For me it is one of my favourite perfumes and simply very successful. The perfect perfume to elegantly dine or dance in the evening, for dates, sophisticated occasions or sensual moments for two.
Certainly to wear during the day but I personally wear it only in the evening and only when I am in female company - for everything else it is too sensual & romantic for me
I get from Ambre Nuit a very good shelf life and Sillage. You don't need much, because the scent tempts you to come closer all by itself. Another plus point, which now has more to do with the price than with the perfume itself - you smell very unique and you don't smell like everybody else. I don't know any other perfume that even comes close to this fragrance DNA.
But yes, this can be paid Dior very well - although I must say that it is worth the price to me, not even perfume enthusiasts recognize the high quality in it.

Dior Ambre Nuit - a fragrance you can put in my coffin.

No.150
First of all I would like to express my astonishment that this fragrance is so rarely commented on here. If we omit the statements, this 10 year old fragrance has only received 18 comments. In 2016 and 2107 each a whole 2 and 2018 not even a single one. Thereby 221 people here give to own this one and at least it was rated 391 times together with me. And with 8.5 it's quite decent. Why is that so?

It can't be because of the price, because despite a price range of 198€ to 312€ for 125ml many people could get a picture of him. To my 150th comment today I thought to myself, I take an expensive fragrance, because even if I find some from the mainstream great, it is also exciting to test such special fragrances. Then also still another smell for me like hardly a second Unisex is.

Maybe he doesn't say much to most people? I honestly don't know. An advantage for me though, I didn't have to read as much as with other fragrances. Not only do I enjoy writing, but I also enjoy reading what others think about the fragrances that interest me.
Now I read that one of them thinks he is too feminine, the other one too masculine. Well the truth is somewhere in the middle.

I quote:
"Ambre Nuit is the encounter of two extremes. In a way, the transformation of "Beauty and the Beast" into a fragrance. This perfume combines the animal, dark side of amber with the delicate velvety of Turkish rose. An amber and night-black scent wave. As in the dialogue between gentleness and strength, in which opposites come together to form an intense duo." François Demachy, perfume designer for Dior
You can leave it like that. The fragrance actually combines something very beautiful, which I absolutely want to smell on my wife with something which I would describe as very masculine and which suits me well. Yeah, I think I'm masculine, now it's out.
After a short citric start, which one hardly notices, the rose takes over immediately, paired with the spice of the pepper, but also here the amber swings along. Pepper is lightly dosed. The rose then stays in the background when the fragrance becomes darker, softer and fuller via the heart to the base. Here Ambra meets Patchouli and that really powerful. Not violently, but it remains supple. Very light sweetness resonates, with some spice and an earthy and floral background. The Sillage is moderate. You perceive yourself very well. It will end up warm and balsamic.

Do I have to worry about the whales? Is it real ambergris? Only Greenpeace and Dior might know the answer, but I'm only evaluating the fragrance and not the style. But I think it's not a real one, the market is too big for that today.
There are also no sharks in Hailbronn, or Haidelberg, they mostly swim on Haiti, but I digress.

But if I'm wrong, then there will be someone who will correct me.

The fragrance lasts well 8h, that's ok, for the price it could have been a bit longer, but I think that's enough. Personally I don't always have to smell 12h after the same fragrance, I like to change in the evening.

As already mentioned, the fragrance has something for both sexes and the term unisex has rarely fitted so well. Personally, I usually find him more feminine. Some people like the horn anyway, and that's good. I don't have women's fragrances in my collection and I don't think I'm the type for La Vie Est Belle, but there are many who think Dior Homme Intense, Noir Extreme by Tom Ford or Grand Soir by MFK are feminine. Nope!
Recently I read somewhere here at a unisex scent that you can't wear as a man. Depends on the type of man, doesn't it? Everything can be worn!

I think it's more a question of age and attitude. When I was younger, Joop Homme had a bang, too. Kouros, Fahrenheit and Egoiste because one was so arschcool and felt so masculine and meanwhile it may also be fine and noble, speak also powdery, sweet or balsamic and still remains a real guy.

This Dior fits just as well on a suit, as on the small black one, whereby I would look with it surely totally crazy.

Conclusion:
A really interesting fragrance that I basically like, which although it seems to be simply knitted, has some nuances. Sometimes he is very feminine in his floral aspects, sometimes more masculine in his spice to become one in the base balsamic. But I can't and won't do that, because even if I like scents, if I like to share my hobby with you, there are limits. That I could enjoy this but once I found quite great.
My thanks go again to Sqsq97, who enclosed this fragrance to me.

To the next 150.
