Unpretentious medicinal amber
Alambar is a quite simple, yet rich citrus-amber scent stuffed with a warm, palpable medicinal-resinous feel, overall quite “sticky” like pouring resin, autumnal and exotic at the same time, topped with a load of sweet spices (cinnamon, cumin) juxtaposed to a vanillic-resinous accord and this ton of warm amber, all posed on a slightly camphoraceous-metallic base (something like benzoin, just harsher, more synthetic and drier). All gently refreshed by a subtle balsamic feel that softens the overall sweet-caramelised heaviness. I don’t get any cocoa note honestly, except for a subtle dusty-sweet feel which can be anything. If you are familiar with Enrico Buccella, his style and his “colour palette” are quite recognizable here as well; a much linear scent, a nostalgic chypre inspiration blended with contemporary metallic nuances, a general boldness mostly focused on ambery-resinous and spicy notes, which this nose seems quite fond of. Not that original, but nice for a while, as it smells deep, rich, intriguing at first, gently evolving on a more bright and soapy drydown. Nonetheless its solid and linear persistence may turn into a flaw after a while (I mean: boring). Give it a try, though; if you like it, it’s a good deal for its price – Laboratorio Olfattivo is one of the very few niche brands which is humble enough to stay away from elitism and keep prices on a decent (fair) level, and I appreciate that.

Alambar
This fragrance opens with a sweet spice bouquet which sadly is marred by a flat bergamot note in the background of the accord. I am sure the citrus is not supposed to be this way, but reacts weirdly to my skin chemistry. The scent’s wake is not affected by this, whereas up close the sweaty-stale aroma of the bergamot is rather noticeable. The oriental heart bouquet is composed of clove, cinnamon and a very vanilla-heavy amber. As the fragrance develops the spice notes burn off, leaving me with an extremely light vanilla note. The dry down is again a pure amber note.
