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!

Spicy amber and vanilla combination with gently cooling fresh note in the background which gives the fragrance some airy touch.+2
