Hello, people of Parfumo!
It's evening again. That means I'm up to my ears here again. I lurk in the darkest corners of the forum just to jump at careless perfumes and perfumes from a dark corner and give them my latest comment.
!!!! Wait!!! Don't throw the wipe away!! That's not as cheap an advertisement as these notes that you get handed in the city and throw into the trash five steps later!!! No, there are things in my wipe that could change your life! Well well, that may not be true, but it could cause your watch list to change, for example by adding a new fragrance, this one: "Ambre 114" by Histoires de Parfums. A brand that is inspired by history (preferably around the time between the 18th century, starting with the fragrance 1725 up to the "modern"... well, for the time being until 1969), or by other beautiful things.
Today we are talking about Ambre 114, the number 114 stands for all the elements and ingredients that this amber scent is supposed to contain, which seems almost unbelievable. Of course, you could really come up with that number, considering what's in even the simplest scents, but 114 still sounds a lot. Maybe the scent is quite complex, who knows, but I'll find out right away, or all of us, if you decide to read my comment :D
At first I smell the eponymous Amber. It smells nice sweet, very intense and gently warm. The thyme makes itself noticeable afterwards somewhat. Although I like other "kitchen herbs" much better, I think that the thyme doesn't smell so bad and fits well to the fragrance, but it remains quite discreet. Muscat, on the other hand, is already more intense and quickly comes across as more spicy and intense.
The fragrance is also becoming increasingly gentle and resinous. This is certainly due to the benzoin as well as the soft and powdery vanilla, which you can already smell in the top note. There are also light woods and earthy patchouli.
A little later, the fragrance is a little spicier. The sweet and the spicy notes are then about the same intensity, so that the interplay of the scents is in my opinion now particularly good. So you continue to smell very good amber, vanilla, some nutmeg, the benzoin resin and woods, which have now become stronger.
Actually, the fragrance remains that way for a very long time, until at some point almost all fragrances gradually weaken and then only vanilla remains as the strongest fragrance, which you can smell for quite a while.
The Sillage and the shelf life:
The sillage of the fragrance is strong. With the first sprayer you will notice a larger fragrance cloud. After two or three sprays you are already wrapped in it and have a nice scent around you, which others can also smell very good on you. The fragrance has an extremely long shelf life, but after eight to ten hours it only smells of vanilla.
The bottle is rectangular with a slight bend towards the neck. On the front side the brand name is written in white letters, on the side a narrow, red label with the fragrance name and some further information was attached. The lid is black, cylindrical and high and again shows the brand name. A bottle that's okay, but doesn't look as beautiful as it might look on the photos.
Yes, that was the Ambre 114 fragrance. And I think it was very successful. For most people who have tried some amber scents before, it will probably smell great, but it might not be as spectacular anymore, because you might have sniffed out hundreds of scents already. But that doesn't matter, because this fragrance belongs to the really beautiful amber scents, at least in my opinion. Moreover, it has a great Sillage and a long shelf life.
It is autumnal because it smells of amber and other autumn-winter scents such as vanilla, benzoin, tonka bean and general spices and woods. If you spray only a little, you can use it during the cooler seasons of the day, even at work. But sprayed a little more, then you get a great, delicious night scent, which both sexes can use pretty much equally. In my opinion, a test is definitely worth it here!
And that's that, too. I hope you read until the end and didn't dispose of my commi (oh no!) :D
All have a nice evening and see you next time :)
