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 white 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.
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. 🙂
