Woohoo!! It’s amber time!

And vanilla and oud. 🙂 But amber is the note that first comes to mind  when it’s cold outside.

That said, this morning I wanted to celebrate this wonderful sunny and wGolden amber close up backlit shows crystalshite day (the snow is still unmelted) with Ambre Sultan, only to not be able to find my decant. So I decided to put Ambre Precieux on. I’m very happy with that choice. If I smell a waft from afar (and not on my turtleneck), I catch what I would call a flowery hint. It’s basically wonderful.

And amber fits perfectly with this cold weather, it just makes you feel warm all over by smelling it.

My other ambery choices will include MdO Ambre, Ambra Nobile by Nobile 1942 and Le Labo Labdanum 18.

With a special mention of Caravelle Epicee, which I don’t actually count among ambers but theoretically it is, so it goes on the list. I mean, there are so many other things going on in there that saying it’s an amber perfume doesn’t do it justice.

I still find that to be one of the best winter perfumes ever. At least for me. It hits all my spicy, warm, gourmand-y buttons. Plus, it smells really sexy.

P.S. That was my first ever perfume review. 🙂

    You’ve got me wanting to locate my decant of By Kilian Amber Oud. Until I find it, why don’t you walk my way so I can catch your sillage, ok? You smell damn good, Ines.

    Ooh, I haven’t worn Labdanum 18 in ages, so I should get it out. I did try Tea for Two again the other day thanks to Tara, and enjoyed it a lot. It doesn’t have amber, but it felt good for this wintry weather we are having.

      Ha! I just had Tea for Two in my hand the other day and thought I should give it a bit of wear. 🙂 Now I will.
