You are going to hate me...
I'm not sure if the region of Calabria get a lot of mosquitoes but this opens with a citronella candle vibe. The Ambra side of things is totally justified and makes it warm and summer evening sexy. I'm really torn because I do love the smell but find it's opening incredibly manufactured. Will this last on my skin? I'm not too sure. My 2 favourites so far from Nishane are Hacivat and Fan Your Flames. It might be my nose but it really smells like a fragrance I should buy to stop mosquitoes rather than a sexy night out.

Stylish blend of fresh & heavy
Nishane are probably the big winners of last year. Especially thanks to Hacivat, which was hyped by many and also became very famous here. If a brand has a cashcow, the other creations of the brand usually benefit as well. Also here. Wulong Cha, Fan Your Flames, Ani and also others have come to the fore a bit and enjoy a huge fan base and a lot of attention. Also this Ambra Calabria. This niche Turkish brand will be pleased. So far, this Ambra Calabria is my first of this brand that I have tested and bought. Probably won't be the last one I tested, though.
A really expensive brand is this one. Especially for people who are rather less in the niche. The regular price for this Ambra Calabria is 170 euros, mind you, 50ml. You get him but more often on sale as many niche fragrances. Between 70 and 110 euros is already a fair price, for which you can take him with a good conscience. Some of this brand even cost 215 euros a 50ml. As I said: Checks times the offers and strikes at the right moment to.

This Ambra Calabria has made me very curious for a long time. i like the idea of mixing heavy notes like amber and vanilla with fresh notes. Is also a tough challenge as they are complete opposites. Such not-quite-fresh scents with heavy approaches are predestined for a great summer evening, summer nights, late summer days, mild summer days or just in spring and fall. If you don't want to miss out on heavy scents in the summer. Even though it's listed above as a citrusy-fresh scent: I would rather wear it less in the heat. For me, that heavy amber sweetness sets in a bit in the opening. But for this a perfect fragrance, when the evening slowly dawns and the great heat becomes a little milder.
The picture of the Falkon here is no longer current. There Nishane has neatly touched up. The old ones look really cheap and boring. The new ones have it going on: gold lettering and heavy gold lid. Noble, luxurious and simply great. Plus this great bottle comes in a stylish box. Absolutely niche-worthy and the price accordingly in contrast to other brands.

Still a short fragrance description, which is quite simple and quickly made in this fragrance: the opening starts fresh, but there is a heavy component already present, which to the base is of course still strengthened. The start is fresh with bergamot and tart green accents, also galbanum is well perceptible. Interesting mix and anything but ordinary. The notes from the base set in extreeemly quickly, so the name amber is absolutely appropriate here. Amber is for me also the main actor in this fragrance. But vanilla is also very present and provides sweetness for a pleasant vibe without being too sticky. Very classy and kept serious. But the chart below shows correctly: this fragrance is very balanced: citrusy, fresh, creamy, spicy, sweet, green. A little bit of everything and great balance. It's also correctly rated 50-50 masculine-feminine. 100% unisex, even though there are 80% male owners registered here. Ladies, test him out!
The performance I find not as bad as readable in some statements. The first hours he is very present. Also the durability is extremely acceptable with a few hours. Overall, for this type of fragrance a durschscnittliche to good performance, which is absolutely optimal in warmer temperatures.

Overall, a great fragrance that you like to smell and is also very unique. Who is still looking for a fragrance for late summer: try this one. This fits many occasions and is almost always usable except in extreme heat and extreme cold. A fragrance that enriches a diverse collection.

Is it really light or rather heavy?
Hm, citrus-vanilla is the good in any case! But feel him as rather heavier initially also very sweet. Is that really bad? Think not, but am really undecided whether I would wear the hot summer days. But eg on a warm summer evening in the restaurant he would somehow bring a Mediterranean touch :-)

Citrusy light, tart-green, vanilla-creamy.
That I like fragrances in which light and heavy scents are in perfect balance with each other should be no secret. I own "Naxos" from the house of Xerjoff, for example, in which tangy citrus prevents an olfactory sticky-sweet honey existence. "Uden" from the Shooting Stars collection also knows how to prevent a too heavy vanilla-amber combination with the help of grapefruit and other tangy notes, and in "Allure Homme Édition Blanche" yet another component, leather, provides a very special twist within this fluffy citrus-vanilla composition. This special, albeit coming about in a different way, can also be found in "Ambra Calabria". At first sniff I hear here again citrus effervescence, which is supplemented only a short time later by vanilla, amber and musk - a familiar, often smelled fragrance concept so?

Well ... not quite.

The special feature of this Nishane fragrance lies in its green impact, which is generated by just green leaves and probably also jasmine, fortunately only very discreetly emerging. In the end, the result is a citrusy, light, discreetly green-hard, well-dosed creamy-sweet good-mood scent, whose spring and summer suitability need not be argued about. Vanilla, amber and musk prevent a citrus-fresh triviality, which we already know from other summer fragrances. In return, the bergamot provides a light vanilla, not too stuffy amber and not too sultry musk. The green notes form the special twist, round everything off, miss a little astringency and in the end, above all, uniqueness.

The sillage is just right for the warm days. No one is annoyed or olfactory bludgeoned. I would even almost think that you can not overspray this fragrance at all. The durability is very good on my skin, by the way. Sprayed on at noon, I could still perceive the fragrance late in the evening without any problems.

Green amber
Nishane Ambra Calabria is good representation of a sweet, green, citrusy amber fragrance.

It starts off very green combined with a refreshing citrus note from the bergamot and galbanum. The bergamot here is really good: good quality and enough density to it.

These green citrus notes are presently joined by a slight floral note from the jasmine, which is not really pronounced: you kinda have to hunt for it. In other words: people around you, unless they are connoisseurs, wont pick up a jasmine smell.

In a later stadium, the amber makes its entrance into the fragrance. It doesnt come alone: he brought his wife: vanilla. A perfect marriage that stays together in this fragrance.

Projection with Ambra Calabria is on the milder side and longevity is also about 4-5 hours.

Overall, I like this frag. The only reason I don't unequivocally recommend it is because of its performance. Its a bit too weak to my taste. If price and somewhat average performance is not a deal breaker and going just by the smell alone, get this as it smells really great.

Lemon grove....

I bought Ambra Calabria in a small boutique in Italy. Nishane's testers stand between embroidered beautiful tops on the shelf. That pretty salesgirl sprays me with Amber Calabria.
In my mind a slope with lemon trees, on which thick fleshy sun-yellow lemons hang. The dried-up grass pokes in the hollow of the knee. In between dark green rich cabbage, which smells cheerfully fresh like juicy leaves. In the further course I see candied and sugared yellow lemon slices. The sugar crystals are reflected in the light: hmmm: fine vanilla!
I am quite torn back and forth to describe the further course of fragrance . The scent fluctuates between gourmandig green, and sharp green. The lemons have disappeared in the background, smell rather bergamot mixed with vanilla. A consistently tasteful office fragrance for which I have received fine compliments.

Fresh, green and overall a pleasant perfume. Performance, sillage and projection are lacking unfortunately which is not Nishane-esque.

The opening is green and citrusy. The bergamot remains, a soft resinous amber enters. It then becomes more creamy and spicy but still fresh.
