fresh and spring-like, LY can also
I personally appreciate leathery fragrances and in this respect also the La Yuqawam range. The most famous one, which has the same score as TL, is well known. Rather fewer people use the other two fragrances. One of them is Ambergris Showers.

At the beginning it becomes herb-citric, what must be the tangerine there. Never smelled it before, serves its purpose, the prelude is very pleasing. The mate probably provides the freshness kick, I perceive the smell especially at the beginning as fresh leather, whereby the leather still remains discreetly in the background. Afterwards the leather comes to the fore, it becomes short like La Yuqawam with this rather earthy, fresh note. The further one progresses, and by that I mean after three hours, the leather recedes, the mix of earthy, fresh notes and the leather seems very balanced. Even a pinch of wood is noticeable.

Who's it for? Honestly for leather lovers who tend to go in this direction even in warmer days and are looking for something fresher. The durability and sillage are good, but not as good as La Yuqawam. If you don't like leather anyway, the new clothes won't help here either, because the LY-DNA is of course clearly present and recognizable.

Basically, the fragrance follows the same process as the more familiar original version. First the clear top note, then the tart leather is the star, at some point it moves into the gentler part above which it gradually fades away over time. If you don't like that, you're wrong here too

Refreshment in a different way: tomato tendril chord
This is again a typical case of "the statement casterl is not enough".

It's really something special.

I'm still looking for the right summer scent because of my non-drawing to the classic citric and aquatic refreshers.
Winter and autumn - yes, there are many here, because I like sweet, balsamic, creamy fragrances. But in the summer sieht´s for me so far ebb out. Much tried, little achieved. And then comes a more pleasing, then colognets itself after 1 hour. Last done with "Gentleman Givenchy [email protected]". Elder there, wech.
That's really not the case with Ambergris Showers. But now in order.
I came across the fragrance and the matching bottling through Rasasi´s Tuscan Leather clone La Yuqawam. I found it qualitatively so stunning that I needed another bottling of this summer flanker here.
Freshly sprayed on, I was disappointed at first: Ambergris Showers starts fresh and cucumbery, like pulling tomatoes from a vine. This green tomato tendril chord is underlaid with a watery citric, which is more reserved than the green notes. So this is galbanum? The whole thing is also sour somehow, but only very slightly, and not of citric provenance. More like tea, macha tea: cool, fruity, sour. The whole thing then lies on a metallic base. Difficult to describe. Not the usual pencil lead note, not even the metallic note from "[email protected] de Marly". No, rather such a cool, distanced-watery metal note: cold, clear water that runs down a metal installation, or better still: condensed water on an ice-cold pipe outside, when it is really hot.
In the further course of the fragrance a soft leather note takes over, which together with some smoke actually forms the basis of the fragrance, but without ever striking out this cool-green fruitiness; This becomes milder, rounder, earthy, perhaps even a little sweetish, but never leaves the parquet.
This may sound like a pretty crazy mixture now, but it works wonderfully, as a fresh summer scent away from the usual suspects, or at best with their borrowings. Of all the summer scents I've had the chance to test so far, Ambergris Showers is definitely the freshest, or rather the most refreshing. Because: I get this cool association without menthol or the like with no other fragrance.
The perfume is indeed unique, unique, as the saying goes. At least in design I wouldn't know anything that smells similar. One really stands out here, also because of the persistence of the fragrance, whereby the Sillage, as well as the whole concept, are quite office suitable, because not obtrusive. But he's not a compliment getter, he's too special for that, rather perhaps a reason to talk. He simply lacks the crowdpleaser attributes of an Aventus, Invictus, Fierce... Ambergris Showers isn't really complex, but you have to be a bit into perfumes to appreciate him.
The best way to wear it is Ü30, unplayful, not too extroverted, but individual: "Look here, this is how perfume can smell", best in summer, but then practically all day long and for any occasion. I think that this is more a mood or type dependent fragrance than an occasion or season dependent fragrance, therefore certainly best suited as a signature fragrance.
For the approx. 100 EUR, which you can currently print for 75ml of this EdP, you get a high-quality, individual fragrance with the luxurious presentation already familiar from normal La Yuqawam, including a magnetic cap in a high-quality wooden box.
In short, Ambergris Showers is a perfume experience at every level, if not for everyone, a refreshing, summery scent painting that I would like to unreservedly recommend.

Mr. Aluminium
La Yuqawam was a familiar name to me because of the first, only true and probably best "Tuscan Leather" clone, but the series offers a lot more! "Ambergris Showers" is a stylish work of art between the chairs that could hardly be further away from a clone. A totally independent and fine perfume... i thought at least until I had the "Irish Leather" under my nose, which smells even better and very similar. Nevertheless: "Ambergris Showers" is noble from the packaging to the fragrance, high-quality and damn sexy. He is well received by everyone without chumming up, is conceited and a charmer at the same time. And above all: apart from the much more expensive memo there is nothing comparable!

"Ambergris Showers" is first and foremost a sexy refresher, as if Tangerine were dripping over ice-cold aluminium. Later it becomes creamier and reminds of leathery powder, balsamic and modern, almost futuristic. Without losing too much of cosiness. I like the top note the most, I'd like to have it longer. I even think she's simply terrific. Tangy and glossy, strong in character and summery. A leather scent like no other. With the above, hardly known exception. Ambroxan also plays along well, giving him a sea-like beard. A fragrance that doesn't want to commit itself and that doesn't even have to. He's too good for that, too confident. A dominator. I also understand the associations with gin - and after Sambucca it is my second favourite hard alcohol. No wonder, especially with these notes in the base, a Leimbacher-Best-Of, that I quickly fell for "Ambergris Showers". I won't let him go. All right, I'll give you some bottlings. But the rest is meeeeeeeiiinsss ;-).

Flacon: great piece, especially the wooden packaging is noble and great! Plays leagues over his price.
Sillage & durability: maybe it's due to the tropical temperatures at the moment, but here it weakens and I think the ratings above are much too high - very close and maximum 5 hours, rather less. And I've already put my foot down on the spray head! But can also be due to my great love for his top note, which makes me subconsciously ddn rest of the scent hide ^^.

Conclusion: undercooled, hard-hearted and mega-attractive - always oscillating between Badboy and Kuschelbär. Absolutely big! The metal man.
