Amber or car?
Hey guys, first of all happy new year to you all :)
Let's see if you read this at all or if you (as I actually also) tired yawning in a corner herumgammelt because you went to sleep late last night and drank way too much, even if New Year's Eve coronabedingt should have turned out rather small for most.

Well anyway, I still write times, so or so, there is just no escape from me, heh he :D
Today comes Elie Saab, and no, this is not a model of the car brand Saab, which no longer exists anyway, but a fragrance brand. But probably you ladies already knew that anyway, but male readers might have been thinking of cars, who knows, after all I think you're all totally stupid and... argh, did I say that out loud now? Crap crap crap, ... forget what I said :D (honestly, I was determined to stop making fun of you guys in the new year... but I can see that's so not going to work... :D)

So, anyway, it's about the fragrance Essence No 3 Ambre. As already derivable from the name, it's about an amber fragrance that should come across gourmandy-oriental, which seems to be made for such cold days as now in winter, right? Anyway, amber is always a nice scent that works well on both women and men and yes, let's see how this scent is here.
Read in detail my text and forget that I constantly grumble about you, yes? :D

The scent:
The fragrance starts off with a strong and sweet amber note. In addition, the fragrance also exudes tart and spicy scents, I would guess general woods here. Because of the vanilla though (and also the resins), the scent quickly becomes softer and of course sweeter. Later, I still smell a lot of vanilla and amber, but you also start to smell earthy patchouli.
This gets stronger over time, though it always stays a step behind the vanilla. Otherwise, there are still tart-spicy scents in the background, which fit very well with the rest of the fragrance, I think.
Strictly speaking, not much actually happens towards the end, the fragrance continues to remain mostly as described. Only the intensities of the individual fragrance notes change, that is, most of them become weaker and weaker over time.
At the very end, you smell the most only the vanilla and the amber, still a while later almost only the vanilla.

The sillage and the durability:
The charisma is very strong, so that one leaves a decent scent tail just by walking by. So one will be quite long quite good to smell, because the shelf life has also turned out very good with over ten hours.

The flacon:
The bottle is rectangular with beveled surfaces and is filled with a honey-colored fragrance liquid. The lid is black and cylindrical. The flacon looks generally already noble, but also quite simple.

Conclusion:
So, that was the amber fragrance from the Essence series of Elie Saab. Some compare amber sometimes yes also with liquid gold, which could well apply, because amber is simply a great fragrance and works well processed excellent in fragrances. This fragrance here also turned out absolutely wonderful, smells just great and I'm sure it could also go down well with others. Which makes it also super for going out, especially in autumn and winter.

Well, now during the pandemic to write that you could go out well with the fragrance is certainly wrong, but you know what I mean. If people don't act too much of a fool and finally realize that the disease actually exists and is also very serious, then hopefully we can get through the pandemic better, but more importantly, faster and finally enjoy life properly again with scents like these! (On the other hand, did I just say that I hope people could be less stupid about it now? Argh,... forget that again, that will never happen, humans remain stupid without end,... there even my little cat with his little pea brain has more intelligence in his soft little head than half of Germany together, mu ha ha :D)

As I said, for better times you can remember this fragrance but times, because his scent is wonderful, and he is also still unisex and yes, so he is of course a recommendable fragrance!

Soo, that's it again from me. I wish you a nice evening and hope you all stay healthy :)
So then, until next time and again a Happy New Year :)

Friday evening, 18:47
He stood before his mirror. Restless. What should he be wearing? Shirt? Polo shirt? Jeans? And what kind of weather was that anyway? Mid September, 22 degrees, muggy, drizzling, now and then the sun comes through, but it's mostly cloudy.
Not only does he not know what to wear, he finds it difficult to choose his perfume.
He is actually someone who has and finds the right fragrance for every occasion and every season, but today, he is simply not satisfied with any of his choices.

"It couldn't have been worse," he thought. Today is the date he's been looking forward to for so long and he can't find the right jeans or the right scent to go with them.

Panic was ready and he stopped while hectically rummaging through his samples and bottlings. Now, it seemed to him, some fragrances have been forgotten. He saw Essence N*3 and vague memories came up. Was that not a Kurkdijan? And didn't he even like it very much at the first test? The hectic pace of life gradually subsided.
Carefully he put his olfactory bulb to the spray head. "Hmph", went through his head. That's a good one, how could it be forgotten
An immensely sensual and beautiful ambergris, soft, gourmand, warm, capturing. Sweet vanilla, well-balanced in the overall structure. Sweet, but not too sweet. Over time, a light fresh note is added - right on the edge, hardly noticeable at all.
Still sensual, without becoming rough, unbalanced, dirty.
N*3 sounds balsamic.
At the beginning, he noted, he perceived a slight reference to Tauers No. 2.
Ambre in perfection, better even than in Ambre Orient.
A great scent without having to name a reason for an event.

When he was able to fully assign the impressions and memories from his world of thoughts and returned to the present, he found himself smiling.
It happened so fast. He had found his scent.

Now just keep your nose in your clothes. Maybe this will help...

Unisex Sweet Amber
This is definitely a unisex fragrance. Not just for women. The amber and sweetness is one of the best for the price point. Yes amber, amber, amber followed by a sweetness in the dry down. It’s not too powdery. I don’t like powdery scents and this is good. Warm inviting and just the right amount of creaminess from the sandalwood. I don’t smell a lot of patchouli and that’s good. Excellent!

A very refined amber
Ambre is a perfume on amber, which shows us a sweet, elegant and very powdery fragrance, somewhat feminine, but nothing worrying for a self-confident man.

The aroma of this perfume is soft, delicate and sweet at all times, although it is not cloying or excessive. It does not show us a hard or intense amber, on the contrary, it shows us the most innocent facet of this resin. At the beginning, very sweet and vanilla amber is perceived, with a quite remarkable resinous air, this vanilla is very well executed and does not have excesses of sweetness. Little by little the aroma begins to dust and you feel the amber wrapped by the vanilla and a floral note that I would not know how to define, and all this, on a background of patchouli and sandalwood. Here the amber loses some sweetness and begins to exude elegance, creating a sophisticated and sober aroma, with a very beautiful and powdery floral-woody point, something feminine, but still exquisite. This way the aroma is maintained until it dies on the skin, except for a small vaporous balsamic veil that appears in the final drying, which could be due to opoponax, but always slightly powdery.

The development of this perfume is very fast, the aforementioned is felt in the first hour of application, then the aroma remains unchanged until the end. This perfume infuses me with the image of an attractive and sophisticated woman, dressed in a suit, an executive, an enterprising woman, who knows what she wants and is not daunted by anything.

The performance of the perfume is good, about 8 or 9 hours on skin and with a very good trail in the first hours, then it goes to moderate high. It is a perfume for cold or temperate climates and to dress it, indifferently, both day and night.

For me, the aroma has a certain feminine air, which makes me not finish loving it and can only say that I like it. It is not feminine to the point of not being able to dress a man, I will continue dressing it until it runs out, but yes, it would be good a tasting before.

Gourmand noble warmth
The first thing you can notice is an intense viscous and very strong sweetish resinous note, which appears incredibly soft and smooth creamy and is due to the Spanish Labdanum.

A little later, the labdanum undergoes a slight but noteworthy change of direction and is accompanied by a clear, sweet, creamy note reminiscent of vanilla pudding, which gives the fragrance a wonderfully gourmand aura and comes from the Bourbon - Vanilla.

At the same time, these two notes are enveloped by a light, but very well perceived balsamic milk chocolate note with a subtle spicy touch, which gives the fragrance a wonderful, noble warmth and is derived from Sumatra benzoin.

Later on, the above notes are underpinned by a fine, tart, slightly sweet and earthy note of vetiver and Indian patchouli, which are by no means too prominent, but in my opinion have been used to ensure that Essence N°3: Ambre does not end up too clumsy, but with extremely pleasant nuances.

In total the fragrance lasts 9 hours on my skin
The Sillage is designed from the beginning to be 4 hours on a very clearly perceptible full arm length, before it is minimized in quiet steps until the fragrance is finished.

I would like to express my sincere thanks to our perfumery "Serafina" for the bottling.

My Amber Number 19

Elie Saab - Essence No 3 Ambre
Full broadside. The tree fell. It's called strength. Spicy resin soaks the air, the sawdust is green and brown and strikes mercilessly, with benzoin and vanilla. It dusts like Macassar. Striped. Another exotic scent appears in the background, slightly floral, like cistus and vanilla, also labdanum. This brings a little smoke and animalism and forces the vetiver into the stable underground.

We are to be seduced, not by force, but by Amber, who suddenly takes command. The labdanum reaches a warm tone. Benzoin changes to sweet and balmy. The fresh green note is now blended. (Galbanum?)

After one hour: a new fragrance.

Shimmering from light to dark, brown to brown, from soft to hard, from under the skin to the space around us. The finest particles float around us. The ingredients all come together in massive amounts. The scent is stubborn and the next moment is erotically caressing. Good and demanding. Enveloping or liberating. The strong amber prevails. Now clarity lives here.

This is for loneliness, for togetherness, for togetherness
A chameleon in green and brown. - And at night, soap. - Oh.

Little well-known gem
A lovely interpretation of sweet amber made by Francis Kurkdjian. True art, with quality ingredients.

A bit bitter opening, you can tell on the resinous woody side. Drying down to really nice sweet amber and vanilla notes. I saw a lot of comments that it is linear, and some point I agree. However, it has a certain deep when you smell it, giving different impressions every time.

Elegant and sexy for daily usage, perfect as well as a more formal scent. If only longevity and silage would be better.

Great price range. I highly recommend to all amber fans.
