A delicate amber
I didn’t realize I like my amber slightly beastly till I tried this one. Molinard Ambre is not a beast. It’s a refined, verging on delicate amber. Not at all gourmand-sweet-sticky, not at all floral: it doesn’t bother with a bunch of notes in other categories and in principle it’s the kind of amber I want. It plays out a beautiful blend of resins that smell like the real thing — dried nuggets of frankincense, myrrh, benzoin (although in hot weather it also gives me lactonic, orange creamsicle or orange sherbet).

But I can’t help measuring it against SL Ambre Sultan, my so far favourite amber by a mile, which is similarly dry and rich, but also really digs in and sort of grasps your skin while simultaneously trying to have a conversation with you. Molinard’s amber more lays alongside your arm, chilled out, beautiful, and making no conversational demands.

I like it very much. I wish it bent my brain a bit more, like Molinard’s Cuir and Patchouli do.

Amber Bomb!
This fragrance has a balsamic, citrus and fruity opening. It’s sweet and oriental. There’s incense and vanilla in the dry down. It turns into a skin scent after two hours. Only lasts for four to six hours. But this is a beautiful and warm fragrance sold for bottom prices at niche quality. Wow!

My Amber Number 38


Molinard Ambre
Little orange.
And incense, so delicate.
A little lavender
Benzoin. Apart

Geranium loves carnation
And musk the smoke
And I the Labdanum
And patchouli too.

All this gently every day.
And good on the chest.
Is fine and tolerable,
For cuddling in lust.

A round pleasure.
Drum here in the poem
With all these amber
A light over a bushel
Molinard Ambre,
Take it softly and take it lightly.
And if you live to be a hundred,
It's been long enough.

It all started with the Three Wise Men
2020 years ago, the Three Wise Men offered Gold, Incense, and Myrrh to the infant god-king. What could a child who had just been born do with gold, frankincense, and myrrh? Apart from the indisputable value of gold, what would a poor family in Nazareth want with the other two offerings? At that time, the Holy Family would certainly have needed more than something other than incense and myrrh, and even gold could not be immediately useful to them. According to the mentality in force at that time in the East, they represented the recognition of a person as God and King: that is, they were an act of submission. They meant that from that moment on, donors belonged to the sovereign and recognized his authority. Gold, evidently, marked the position of a king; the incense was used as a sacrifice to God; myrrh finally embalmed the bodies of the dead. Christ was recognized as king with gold, confirmed as God with incense, and remembered as a mortal with myrrh.
Aromatic ingredients such as incense and myrrh, but also several other resins and balms, have impressed and marked our senses for many centuries. Today it was enough for me to look at the purple bottle of Molinard Ambre, to imagine balsamic notes with a deep, warm, and balanced amber. I didn't hesitate and choose it as my scent of the day.

Ambre opens with a fresh top of herbaceous and floral fougere, and with a nuance of a tarred, spicy, and leathery effect. If there are citrus notes in this opening they are completely overwhelmed by fougéres and spices.
Evolution then gives us resins and balms. Amber, incense, and labdanum are now installed in a pronounced, persistent, and slightly sweet manner. This warmth and velvety sweetness reveal the fragrance's DNA.
When the resinous and balsamic phase becomes a little calmer, the final phase of the last 3 or 4 hours of drydown becomes evident, with a light musk, milky and soft sandalwood, as well as an almond sweet tonka bean.
The perfume is soft but remarkably resinous in a very attractive way. The slight sweetness rounds it off and makes it very seductive.
I tried to make a layer with a light initial spray from Tom Ford Noir de Noir and the result was very good due to the slight increase of a wooden note, oud in this case. I also rehearsed an initial spray of Caron Pour Un Homme and the result was a fougere opening that was more energetic, and also very pleasant.

Let me frame this resinous symphony in numbers.
___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___
Opening: 9.0 (herbs and florals en an ambery frame)
DryDown: 10.0 (divine resinous and balsamic with sweet almond and tonka touch)
Longevity: 7.0 (3 good sprays can last up to 6~7 hours)
Sillage: 7.0 (up to 5 feet at its peak with 3 sprays; projects for 2.0 hours)
Uniqueness: 8.5 (It has its own DNA but somewhat similar to some other very good amber scents)
Wearability: 8.5 (A three-season fragrance for outdoors or indoors, day or night; avoid the hot summer days)
Versatility: 8.5 (A very easy to wear balsamic unisex fragrance; forget sports and seaside)
Compliments: 8.5 (You will smell good to everybody and some people will judge it very alluring)
Quality: 9.0 (above-average quality ingredients, good flask, nice sprayer; I take 1 point for the just average performance)
Presentation: 8.0 (nice presentation; the color purple bottle does not please everybody)
Price: 9.0 (EdP 100 ml non tester for € 28.00 on sale + shipping; usual price: €45.00)
___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___
Overall rating: 8.45 / 10.00
- between 7 and 8 = above average;
- between 8 and 9 = recommended;
- greater than 9 = do not miss;

Recommendation: This is a very good amber fragrance and a very good value for money choice due to its intrinsic quality. The average performance may be overcome by a couple of sprays on the clothes. As far as I'm concerned it's a must-have for me.

Elegant amber scent
A beautiful, pleasantly restrained, successful amber scent. In the beginning slightly fresh and clean, it quickly becomes warm, somewhat balsamic with a slight spiciness and depth. I wouldn't call it sweet either, but rather rounded off by a pinch of vanilla and musk. He also does not have this dusty dry what often adheres to most amber scents. A really fine, noble and elegant fragrance. Surrounds one with a reserved Duftaura, is not disturbingly intrusive, the term ladylike comes to me in the mind, whereby I can imagine him also very well at a man. Patchuly has only a very subordinate role here, fits well into the Gesamtkunstwerk. What I still perceive well is the lavender, very fine I love it. By his on the most pleasant warm charisma he goes for me in the gourmand direction. Durability is with 6-8 hours quite respectable and then the very moderate price of approx. 79 euros super pleasing. For me a serious candidate for this season where these "warm" fragrances pave the way into our hearts...
