Fort & Manle care for noses down there!
But the Aussies do not only have a heart for noses from Down Under. In a globalised world, you can also get the scents of this range in a Dutch online shop, which keeps extreme waiting times and customs inconveniences at bay.
I would like to mention this shop in a positive way (liannetioparfums.nl) Included 4 Ormonde Jayne fillings with my sample set order. The fact that I already knew them does not detract from the joy. At Fort & Manle itself, this sample set is currently sold out.
I was struck by the Australian niche label, by their smart flacons and the consistently good ratings here. I'm not sure if I'll comment on every fragrance in this series, but the collected scent impressions invite me to do so.
There is certainly no lack of amber scents. Amber Absolutely could prove to be a game-changer of this genre, for fragrance lovers who are still at war with it. I'm not a fan of ambry roses myself, but this scent teaches me better
According to the pyramid, you could expect a fruit basket at the beginning and even then you can do a lot of wrong for my nose. Authentic fruit, rarely succeeds in perfumery if the citrus department is not involved. Here, a duet of Play-Doh and machine oil welcomes me for a moment, while the alcohol takes flight. After a few seconds the irritation is over.
I like currant in every shape, fruit, leaf, everything is balm in my nose. But I am not sure which part of the plant should be responsible for this scent. The colleagues write about a sour contrast. This could just as well come from a bergamot. How does a natural plum smell in a world of scents that is completely enhanced by artificial aromas (plum wine, yoghurts,...) Plums usually only develop a more distinct aroma when they are boiled down or already overripe.
I can't for the life of me recognize plum here as such. An aromatic-fruity note, however, which is most likely to underline the greenish-tart flavour of currant leaf tickling in the nose. Anyone expecting the pulp of the currant is on the wrong track and belongs in the "Enchanted Forest". The reference fragrance for currant.
It has to be said that such fragile fragrances have a hard time asserting themselves against a base that is starting very early. In any case, I don't find the fruit impression disturbing here, doesn't trigger a synthetic alarm and it doesn't last too long anyway. The already mentioned green-acidic impression on the skin is also in this fragrance a well placed contrast generator
However, I lack the naming of a note, which is more or less conspicuous depending on the form of the day, and at the same time I would like to report a missing person. The rascal answers to the name cinnamon! Much of this goes into the projection together with a well filed rose, which does not let the scent drift off clearly into the ladies' camp at any stage. On the skin sometimes more, sometimes less noticeable.
Still more than in "Honos", but considerably less than in "Dolce di Giorno" or "Armani Privé - Ambre Eccentrico". The fact that cinnamon is not mentioned in the Pyramid could be due to the fact that it is part of the amber chord to elapse its existence.
The fragrance is currently listed as "resin sweet". I don't feel any sweetness at the current temperatures and it doesn't develop into a ricochet in women. The fruit cocktail in the front is well-considered cushioned and what comes from cinnamon into the projection, I would place in the category "men's cinnamon"
Cinnamon is not sweet by nature, only if you give it with sugar. It is slightly hot on the tongue. And spicy and aromatic in the nose. This one comes along as if it was stretched with desert sand and perfectly embeds itself into the amber-rose chord. At the same time it restrains the rose without becoming a nerve factor itself. If you mentally subtract the cinnamon, the result is not far from Tauers 2 "finish".
Therefore, this fragrance seems to me to be ideal for noses that still fail at Tauers 2s, are looking for a discreetly amber rose for every day, or as a beginner's fragrance in the world of amber fragrances that do without cloves.
Office or opera, on the skin or in projection. Amber Absolutely always cuts a good figure. Even if I was not yet allowed to wear it in every season, it seems to me to be designed for every season.
The test vials are made of glass, very praiseworthy, the dimensions of the spray nozzle are very narrow. It takes a few more strokes to achieve the equivalent of a familiar bottle. The rating could be even higher, but I like to put scent impressions in relation to each other and in this series 2 more scents shine, which I like at least as well or even better at the moment. Nevertheless this one already triggers a buying stimulus for me.
