Ex Nihilo Amber Sky Eau de Parfum is a drier, spiced amber, cedar, and sandalwood mix that first of all will get a extra piquant degree of spices that run nearly savory however ultimately the aromatics come from the woods used. The drydown used to be extra resinous and vanillic whilst nonetheless being smoothed out with sandalwood. Those are the notes:
- most sensible notes: bergamot, coriander seeds
- middle notes: nutmeg, geranium
- base notes: amber, cedarwood, sandalwood, resinoid vanilla, tonka bean
It opened with sharp, sour citrus–tart and pithy–with a delicate veil of florals with recent, reasonably nutty spices with a bit chunk. It briefly turned into leathery and woody with dry, fragrant spices. I smelled extra cedar than sandalwood, however the impact of the woods used to be no longer as fragrant or as dry as all cedar would were, so the sandalwood appeared to clean and mix the 2 woods in combination.
Inside quarter-hour, spiced, golden amber added heat to the drier, extra fragrant woods and spices. Amber Sky gave the impression hotter, spicier (with out being stuffed with clove or cinnamon, extra fragrant and bordering on savory), and handiest reasonably resinous. The creamier sandalwood paired neatly with the fragrant, drier cedarwood with each seeming to be extra in steadiness.
The sandalwood began to develop into extra outstanding after an hour on my pores and skin, because the woody notice gave the impression creamier, softer, and evenly spiced however much less dry and cedar-like. The amber felt like an offer till after two hours, when it in any case emerged golden and thick.
For trying out, I used 1/3 of a zero.7ml pattern vial dabbed to the bottom and topside of my wrist space on my left arm. I used an unscented moisturizer previous to making use of the heady scent as this could also be my swatching arm (aka, extremely parched at any given second) as I discovered heady scent didn’t dangle neatly right here another way.
I bought my pattern in January 2022; fragrances are recognized to be reformulated over their lifetime , so take note of when a overview used to be made, e.g. a overview from 2010 won’t mirror what the same-named fragrance smells like in 2022.
It lasted for 6 hours till it used to be a skin-scent and about 10 hours prior to it used to be fairly tough to hit upon on my pores and skin. The sillage and projection have been reasonable with the sillage shedding sooner than the projection inside of 3 hours of wear and tear.
Neatly, one, I will have to have checked the cost tag of the entire bottle, as a result of this logo is a dear one! Two, it used to be a spicy-sweet mixture of amber of woods, which used to be very delightful to put on, however I think like I’ve this coated with different fragrances I personal or have examined (however haven’t been prone to shop for), so for sure no longer one I’ll be including to my assortment.
