Tag Archives: Ambre Sultan

Woohoo!! It’s amber time!

And vanilla and oud. ๐Ÿ™‚ But amber is the note that first comes to mind ย 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 1942ย 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. ๐Ÿ™‚


Ambre Sultan – the Sultan of ambers

I believe the title says it all. ๐Ÿ™‚

There’ve been several reviews of this wonder in the last few weeks so I don’t want to write another one.
I’ll just say that when I say the Sultan of Ambers, I mean it. And I love ambers. In all variants.
A big thank you to Helg from Perfume Shrine who sent some over for me to try (along some other gems I hope I’ll be reviewing soon).
So, instead of a review, I leave you with a round-up of those I found the best (and I urge you try this one if you havent already):
Before I finish, I just have to add, it has the additional quality of making me think of Shalimar when I put AS on.

I need a bottle (or 10). ๐Ÿ™‚
