filigree gold jewellery and valuable lace
For more than thirty years my life motto (inoculated by my mother!) was: "Just don't attract attention!"
I was really "small, harmless and shy" and would never have had the idea to do anything other than swim with the current, possibly in the wake of others to be invisible!
"How sad!" I think today!
My phase of "pupation" must have been pretty inconspicuous. The astonishment in my environment was great when the small, rather inconspicuous caterpillar became not only a butterfly, but, as my friend Karola always said: "a bird of paradise"!
I wouldn't have worn even one of the components of the base note of "Amber Mystique" at that time: I probably lacked the courage to do so!

Amber Mystique" is as fine as filigree gold jewellery and just as cuddly.
Nothing is loud or even cheeky here; everything is elegant and within a certain noblesse.
Just the prelude with black currant and raspberry nectar (why do I think of delicious jam?), skillfully peppered with pink pepper, is very flattering to the senses.
Ylang-Ylang already sets the first highlight here: golden light points shimmer in the fruity spice.
The aromas of various fragrant roses and jasmine underline the femininity of this fragrance composition.
These powerful floral scents blend smoothly with the entrée.
The result is a calmly flowing stream of fragrance; soothing - without any shallows, without any whirls!
However, before this melange can develop too much flowery-fruity sweetness, Patchouli appears and brings the first streaks of fragrant gold with it.
How wonderful this previous fragrance now harmonizes with a resinous-spicy incense.
Here once not from one of the strongest, dark families, but still very intense and pleasantly smoky.
This is the prelude to the sensual basis: all scents have been finely and easily combined here.
Amber's gold meets the herbal spice of Labdanum, the resin of the cistus roses.
I don't know if even today goats are driven through the bushes by their shepherds so that their resin settles in the beards and is then combed out and processed further.
I'd rather not imagine it either! A piece of a billy goat in a fragrance creation?
Well, Oud doesn't appear that powerful after all; but he is present and integrated into the fragrance rhythm in an extremely fitting way.
Leather is also "feminine" in doses and has sandalwood on a long leash as its scent partner; "Amber Mystique" is flattering and slightly erotic.
All these components are skillfully mixed once more before musk, skilfully dosed with a light hand, rounds off the fragrance.

If "Amber Mystique" appears for a time like the aforementioned filigree gold jewellery, this fragrance changes over time into a heavy, valuable lace - whether from Ghent or Burano.
This fragrance flatters the woman who wears it and emphasizes sensual yet elegant the eternal "mystery woman"!
Here not with a bang or a thunder roll; but more like a symphony by Haydn or Mozart!

The Sillage has been created with fine craftsmanship; the durability of this liquid gold is several hours.
Even with me "fish blood" a beauty unfolds which surrounds me flatteringly in the long run.
"Amber Mystique" doesn't look tired or even stale over time, but says goodbye to a light step full of grace.
The wearer will be remembered for a long time, even if she only tilts her head slightly while walking and doesn't shout: "Hello! I'm leaving now!"
Therefore this is a very feminine lady, who is even very suitable for everyday use.

As often as I wear powerful scents and sometimes even celebrate them, "Amber Mystique" is very likeable to me, especially in a more reserved way.
It is a fragrance that can gild a foggy, rainy day wonderfully and without much fuss.
And so welcome!

Amber landmark
Mystic is an adjective well applied to this perfume.
It's intoxicating in a good way, dazzling as a goblet of good liqueur (or many goblets) and, with an above-average performance, grants many hours of pleasure to its wearer.
Although I consider it a unisex perfume, its masculine side is bigger than the feminine one.
The existing initial sweetness is mostly fruity and comes from the raspberry and blackcurrant existing notes.
The rose note it's not strong but is very alluring and pleasant.
The overall scent is intense and seductive, with a strong chord of amber and incense. The oud, without being intense, makes itself noted with a good dosis of smoke. It behaves like an ember. No flame, but always on fire.
The presentation is very beautiful and worthy of being in the front row of any shelf.
Estée Lauder can only be congratulated on this perfume and it has completely awakened me to try the Wood Mystique as well.

Keep your scent high!

Oriental Mystique
Amber Mystique is nothing like it's more synthetic cousin Wood Mystique, and it's a good thing too. Having read many negative reviews, I was wary of blind buying this one, but when I got an excellent price, and saw that I don't really have a proper amber fragrance in my wardrobe anymore, I had to buy it. Well, it's a good thing I did because I love this perfume. First of all, the sillage is incredible. The lasting power is fair to good. It wafts around you like a magical cloud without being so heavy that it chokes everyone. The scent itself is easy to love: all I get are sweet spices and more spices. I would not say this is an amber fragrance but it is quite lovely. There is nothing harsh or artificial here and it stays pretty linear throughout. The drydown has just a hint of oud. I would recommend this for spice lovers as it is an uncomplicated perfume that smells just right.

I would have called this Oriental Mystique instead of Amber Mystique as the amber, powdery here, plays a supporting role with other equally vocal cast members. It's balmy, deep, slightly dark and mildly sweet. I am irritated that I cannot find more to say about a limited edition scent that I paid a dear price for ( it was a blind buy brought back from London for me). Yes it's well done. Yes it's Estee Lauder. This would be a great introduction to orientals and if one hasn't smelt many others. If you have a more jaded nose, this will not satisfy urges for individual or unique. Apart from that, the sillage and longevity are disappointing on me.
