Ambiguous stories?
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

The fragrance:
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:
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 :)

Balsamic Orientalism
What a strange headline some of you might think. I admit that this "alism" as an appendage to the noun "Orient" sounds somewhat extreme. We know it from the words "fundamentalism", "extremism" and similar, which often evoke negative associations. But here the so-called "Orientalism" is not supposed to force negative feelings or ways of thinking - no - much more I would like to emphasize with this word that this fragrance, "Ambre 114", presents the Orient as the average Central European imagines it to be quite classical.
The opening is characterized by a very authentic and especially intense nutmeg note, which immediately makes my mouth water. After an estimated three minutes, it is literally overrun by thyme, but can still be heard when smelling concentrated. The brain clatters, various ideas concerning the Orient are brought out, accordingly it inevitably comes to imaginations, which put the wearer in the middle of a large spice bazaar. This top note is already unbelievably aromatic in itself, not at all pompous, as one knows it from some Orientals, which often exaggerate it a little bit with the spice. The spice here, on the other hand, is balanced and is accompanied by a subtle rose note and patchouli by the insertion of the heart note. Rose and patchouli, however, seem to be only accessories here, which then completely fade into the background due to the base note. Amber, vanilla, as well as tonka bean and benzoin give the spicy, aromatic atmosphere a bit of flair. The vanilla and the tonka bean bring a little sweetness into the game, but it never comes across as sticky-penetrant. This is ensured by the persistent thyme note and the well-known benzoin resin, which is noticeable by its balsamic appearance. If this kind of resin still overtaxed me at the versatile celebrated "Grand Soir" of Maison Francis Kurkdjian, it was dosed exactly right here. I don't hear a medical or even synthetic note, but airiness, which is created by the balsamic character of that scent building block. The amber also found in the base note rounds off this spicy-sweet-balsamic composition with a slightly dry, if not even powdery note. But the powderiness is by no means exaggerated - no - here, too, the dosage has been thoroughly checked. Together with the combination of amber and the not to be neglected musk, a very warm, somehow organic, trust arousing sweetness is created, which however only shows slight animalistic traits, never appears unappealingly, but instead comes along very warm and experiences a balsamic-spicy support, in order to gain additional desire through the authentic vanilla tonka bean game.

Perhaps now you will understand what I mean by my "Balsamic Orientalism". It is a fragrance that actually undergoes a real course of fragrance. In the early afternoon one strolls perhaps over the bazaar, can be pampered tastefully as well as olfaktorisch, while on the way home, so in the late afternoon, one provides still flowers for the dearest one, which land at the arrival at home then nevertheless quite fast in the corner, in order to dedicate themselves to the interpersonal, the love, the cuddling, however, without disturbing thereby his surrounding field - yes, also such a thing is to still give. In fact, the Sillage is very moderate and nothing that at some point will become a stress test for one's own nose or that of other people. However, the passion that can be enjoyed lasts even longer and it is this passion that lovers of amber, musk, vanilla and spice will appreciate when they try this fragrance. Instead of "Balsamic Orientalism", "Passionate Orientalism" could also introduce this commentary, but there can only be one big headline.

A gorgeous, resinous amber with some soft spices and florals.
Dry down is lovely too, and equally smooth. Like a gentler, less arid L'Air du Désert Marocain (which I still prefer). Nonetheless, this is a fantastic amber worth sampling, especially if you find the aforementioned too harsh.

All that matters
Simply said: a beauty.
This refined scent is soft and fresh even.
An amber perfume for those who like to have it sweetened by vanilla, and uplifted by a musky rose, some sandalwood an a light cedar.
I am smitten.

Superb Near-Reference Quality Amber...
Ambre 114 is a pretty linear scent to my nose, at least (in this case that is just fine). It opens with a good deal of nutmeg spice mixed with the initial amber that immediately makes its presence well known. This amber is only mildly sweet (thank goodness), and is not cloying in the least. The spiced amber adds sandalwood to its repertoire in the heart notes before including a nice dose of semi-sweet vanilla and tonka bean in the base notes. These notes are extremely well-blended, and distinguishing individual notes is difficult due to the high level of sophistication and refinement Ambre 114 brings to the plate. Ambre 114's projection is average to slightly below average, with average longevity.

It is well documented that I abhor super-sweet amber scents (a "good" example of this is Ambrarem, a much more expensive scent from the same house), so it was a pleasant surprise that Ambre 114 joins Mona di Orio's Ambre as being two of the least sweet, but most appealing amber scents I have smelled to date. I think I have a slight preference for the Mona di Orio, but it is a near toss-up and they are both incredible scents that are highly recommended. Ambre 114 gets a very strong 4.5 stars out of 5 from me. Superb, and full bottle worthy for certain!

Unisex Amber
Ambre 114 has its name because the formula includes 114 ingedients. It is a rather light amber parfume with a moderate sillage, wearable for both men and women. Starting with herbs and spices then getting woody dry with a vanilla note. Sweetness is carefully tamed and dosed to become a side aspect. At drydown i get an impression of old dry books. A very nice well-balanced fragrance!
