A luxurious makeup powder, exquisite.
I love this perfume, it is in the vein of Dior Homme Intense, but much lighter and more distinguished, retaining that characteristic dusty touch of makeup, which is really beautiful.

Peruvian Ambrette is a fragrance of linear cut and without much evolution, an incredible scent of make-up powder on a bed of warm wood, spicy and with some other slightly dirty tinge, really charming and sophisticated. An elegant fragrance, cozy and clean, that does not bore with its monolithic essence. A vivid perfume, in spite of its few notes, like a kaleidoscope of organic, vegetal and powdered nuances, which makes the aroma feel much more complex and luxurious than its notes record.

The only evolution that presents this perfume is that, the powdered notes are decreasing in intensity throughout its development, and in the drying, the warm woody notes are more prominent, but when this happens, the aroma is already very submerged skin ras.

For me it is a much more stylized, exquisite and gallant interpretation of the classic DHI, with a lower performance, where the wake is not where it excels, staying moderate most of the time, but, if we consider its price, it is too poor performance for what it's worth.

It is an aroma of cold and temperate times, and of use, indifferently, diurnal and nocturnal. It is not a perfume of difficult use, although it would look great in formal and special events, you can dress in any occasion, without problems.

Now comes the bad of the perfume, its price, the perfume is a smell olfactory, but it makes me too expensive for what it offers, even the expensive Dior Homme Intense seems cheap at your side, so, for obvious reasons, I do not recommend it , having perfumes in the market, with similar fragrances, at a lower cost, but if, on the other hand, money is not a problem for you, and you like the style of Dior Homme Intense or Valentino Uomo Intense, you can go quietly through it, because it's not bad at all.

Sorry for my bad english.
