Salted Amber...
Ambre Gris opens with a sweet, slightly fruity davana before quickly transitioning to its heart. As the composition enters its early heart smoky amber featuring a sea-salt facet resembling ambergris takes the fore, supported by a noticeable cedarwood undertone with a dose of slightly animalic musk and mild geranium. As the composition reaches the late dry-down the musk remains, turning near-transparent with the amber eschewing the smoke but keeping the salty facet, adding in subtle vanilla through the finish. Projection is excellent and longevity outstanding at around 15 hours on skin.

Ambre Gris is a tough composition to like. The davana open is quite nice, but it only lasts five seconds before the extremely odd salted smoky amber arrives in all its glory. This is obviously what the perfumer is trying to portray as ambergris, but if this is what ambergris is supposed to smell like, I know I don't like it. This holds especially true with the musk and geranium pairing that adds to the off-putting nature of the composition. The late dry-down is tolerable, but it is not even close to enough to save this disappointing concoction by Perris. The bottom line is the $155 per 100ml bottle Ambre Gris by Perris is a weird smelling approximation of rare ambergris that is extremely difficult to tolerate sniffing let alone wearing, earning it a "poor" 2 stars out of 5 and an avoid recommendation.
