This scent has a story worth repeating: on a hike in the mountains of Italy, Atelier Cologne founders Sylvie Ganter and Christopher Cervasel stumbled upon a rare flower known to locals as the Brunello. They had never smelled anything like it — there seemed to be a whole ambery bouquet contained within the single bloom. After returning home, they were inspired to create a scent that paid homage to their fragrant memory, and Ambre Nue was born. This highly concentrated Cologne Absolue — 18 percent, to be exact — is the latest addition to the Atelier line.
Really not my kind of sent. It was heavy and very heady, and actually reminds me of a men's fragrance. I could see it working really well as a men's cologne, but for me its a bit heavy. It does last and is very strong, so the quality is obviously high.1
This cologne had a great fragrance that lasted all day long! It wasn't overpowering, and didn't feel oily or sticky on my skin! I loved it!4
I like more fruity, light notes in fragrance (Kate Spade Twirl - from my November box!), rather than sultry, darker tones. Just personal preference, I'm sure a lot of people would love this!4
I felt like this smelled really masculine. I personally didn't love it, but I do enjoy receiving perfume samples in general.2
It was too dense of a smell for me but it did offer a new smell with a combination of notes many could appreciate. It didn't mix with my chemistry well, but I could see how others could enjoy wearing the scent. I will, however, keep the sample in my purse for emergencies! ;)3
I have to admit, in my December Birchbox, this and the dry shampoo were tied for things I was most excited to try. The story behind the scent was just too intriguing.
Out of the phial, the initial note is a fresh mandarin, over subtle amber. On the skin, the amber really warms up, with a hint of spice, and the mandarin is joined by a soft floral. It smells almost creamy. Myrrh seems to bridge between fruit and spice excellently.
After wearing for a while, the amber becomes a touch more powdery, and the mandarin goes slightly aquatic, though still carried quite well by the creamy jasmine.
Overall, this is a very comfortable scent to wear, Iâ€™d say fairly unisex. Not a lot of sillage, which I appreciate in my perfumes(if you can smell my perfume outside of a three foot radius, Iâ€™ve clearly applied too much). It also has a good wear lengthâ€“ four hours from a drop on my wrist, before it was pretty much faded to a memory of citrus.
If I wasnâ€™t already inundated with a small hoard of perfumes I adore, this would definitely be on my wishlist, and I will enjoy my sample. Okay, it may yet go on my wishlist, because it is just a lovely scent.
I love this fragrance, but the price for the full size is a bit out of my budget. Thanks for including it in the box, though15
I sort of liked it, but I didn't love it. Might something that would have to grow on me.3
Just not the scent for me. I like more sweet floral scents2
The smell was not appealing to me at all. But I gave it to my mom and she thought it was ok but that it didn't last that long.1
