The good Lord sends me to the angels...
[...]

I am above the clouds, on the sky-blue horizon of this oh so wonderful earth... All around me are many beautiful creatures... Radiating a purity that is as pure and natural as I have never experienced before... I look at them with admiration, one more unique than the other... "Dear God, are those angels? If so, I don't want to leave here anymore..."
[...]

Not long ago, when I received a mini-bottle (5ml) of this fragrance with my Baccarat Rouge EDP order, I was surprised because I hadn't expected it...
(Note: I passed on the BR after a short time, because it smelled too much like "doctor's office").

Holding the miniature of AH Extrait in my hand, I first opened the lid and smelled the spray head. "Oh my God! What the hell is this?!", I was amazed at my first impression... Once again, hold the nose: "This is divine! Madness!"
So I sprayed both my wrists and the neck and neck area with several sprays and left in front of the door...
[...]

I wore it for several days now and especially today with the nice weather (at least for me in the deep west) it looked so incredibly beautiful. I had today off (bridge day), went for a walk, in the city and later along the forest... I have indeed not had this carefree feeling of freedom like today for a long time and I am firmly convinced that this fragrance has done its part in this...

At work I had also used it for a few days and a colleague at work wanted to order it for herself, because she was immediately taken aback when she noticed it on me [...]

The tangerine, together with Ceylon cinnamon, provides the fresh and tasty opening, which makes you want more immediately. Not long, however, the iris, which gives the fragrance this beguilingly floral and powdery character, which also lasts to the base. There the so fine, soft and pleasant sweetness is added, for which the Brazilian tonka bean and the vanilla are responsible. And not to forget, of course, the amyris oil from the amyris trees, which are found on the island of Haiti, among others (hence the term "Caribbean" amyris). This oil smells strongly of sandalwood, but - according to my research - has nothing in common with the real sandalwood. The Amyris gives the fragrance this balsamic-soft touch, which makes me melt away...

Regarding the durability I can say that I notice it on me for a good 6-7h; the silage is good in the first 3-4h, after that you can still smell it directly close to the skin.

MMn it is very universal, meaning that you can wear it at any time of the year and for any occasion without any problems. But the best I find it comes at temperatures between 15-25 degrees to the validity

Conclusion:
Angels are spiritual beings who have no essential physical form. However, they have the ability to appear in human form. When I wear this fragrance, I feel like I'm with the angels in heaven... It makes me feel like I can dive into another world... This fragrance radiates an incredible warm security and a primal trust that I have never experienced before with any other fragrance... Just like those angels do...
[...]

And as always, I thank everyone for reading and wish you something!

Masculine fresh, dry and bit floral sweet perfume
Amyris homme undee his extrait de parfum versión is a fresh and Woody perfume with a classical vibe. I can get some citrus at the opening and then It turns a bit sweeter. I dont know how the amyris smell but i can get some very dry and Woody flowers, maybe something more or less similar to the immortelle that i supose could be the amyris. It is also a bit spicy with the cinnamon and the saffron.
I think It could be perectly unisex, because It goes a bit on the way of perfumes like Boss the scent, sweet but fresh, or even like infusión d'homme by Prada, a little floral but fresh and dry, but i think It Will be more liked by men. The lo gevity is good although the sillage is just average. Better for daytime or as Office scent.

It's worth it, it's not worth it, it's worth it, it's not worth it...
I already wrote a text for the usual and above all cheaper "Amyris Homme", which I classified as solid to good, but which somehow lacked that special something. Now there is this fragrance from the house of Kurkdjian as an extra. Higher perfume oil content, significantly higher price - is it worth it ?

I answer this question in advance and say: "YES!", and first try to explain for whom this fragrance is not worthwhile.

It is not worthwhile for those who already have big problems with the usual "Amyris Homme". Now some will say that this is actually logical and obvious. However, it is not uncommon for Extrait variants of existing fragrances to show great differences and to attract those noses that were not enthusiastic about the original fragrance version.
In the case of the Extrait, there are certainly differences that can be perceived, which I will come to in a moment. However, those differences will be too marginal for the noses, which, in principle, do not know what to do with eau de toilette.

For whom could the extract be worthwhile?

It might be worthwhile for those who like the cheaper "Amyris Homme", but still see potential for improvement in it.
The eau de toilette gains a sweet creaminess from the tonka bean. This creamy tonka sweetness takes a dominant role and subordinates the refreshing mandarin orange and the woody amyris quite strongly, thus depriving the eau de toilette of a little freshness.
If you don't like the creamy Tonka sweetness so much or would like to experience it a little more reservedly, you should try the Extrait. It is clearly woody due to the stronger addition of Amyris. The tangerine, which at the beginning provides for a proper cooling, which I have only heard so far in "Aqva Amara", is mixed with the sandalwood-like Amyris plant and makes the whole composition appear much more acidic and thus much more angular than the Eau de Toilette. The iris, which in the local fragrance pyramid is much too small in my eyes, provides the powdery background, which I like to smell in fresh fragrances. At the end there is still a little bit of Tonka sweetness, but not to the same extent as we know it from the original version.

The extract is thus - and this is untypical for such a fragrance - not the rounded, smoother, warmer or even deeper version of an already existing fragrance creation, but in this case the exact opposite.
The Extrait does away with the creamy Tonka sweetness and provides for woody-powdery, refreshing nooks and crannies by no longer attributing the Tonka bean such a prominent role. Instead, the mandarin, amyris and iris take over the sceptre here. But this transformation also needs to be paid for. It is true that the prices that a Francis Kurkdjian charges for his creations are in many cases still within reasonable limits, if one takes into account that one is in the niche segment. Nevertheless there is a difference of about 70,- Euro. If you are completely satisfied with your current "Amyris Homme", the eau de toilette, I think you can save the extra. If you are happy with DNA per se, but think that there is still room for improvement here and there, that there are a few more rough edges here and there, you could find your "Holy Grail" here, if you are prepared to accept the additional cost mentioned above

Success and an absolute buy recommendation
I already own the adt. Amyris and was curious about the Extrait version.

Compared to the adt. it is a little less fresh and a little more woody and the top note of mandarin oil and cinnamon is very elegantly processed.

For me a beautiful perfume on the skin, fruity, creamy, spicy.

All around a successful composition.

This perfume can be worn all year round, with more body heat comes with me the mandarin and the cinnamon very beautifully and then the spiciness.
