Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier Ambre Mythique Eau de Parfum begins with a burst of citrus, briefly adopted by way of a darker, toffee-like syrup with salty, musky leather-based that turned into extra fragrant with lavender and greenery that grew woody, spiced, and sooner or later, sweeter and creamier. The notes are:
most sensible notes: bergamot, geranium, coriander, incense
center notes: myrrh, lavender, labdanum cistus
base notes: patchouli, sandalwood, vanilla, tonka bean
It opened with subtly candy, orange and contemporary peels with smoky incense that shifted right into a darker, toffee-like syrup that gave the impression a marginally burnt (however in that god, caramelized more or less means). The toffee simmered because it was once joined by way of a salty, leathery facet that gave the impression relatively musky. There was once a zest or two of lemon that whispered within the background.
Ambre Mythique took an fragrant flip after fifteen mins with the addition of lavender and nondescript greenery that fused to salted, syrupy toffee and leather-based mix, and it appeared to pull again from the prior muskiness. Creamy sandalwood, somewhat cocoa-like patchouli, and lavender swirled in combination with none inexperienced high quality about hour into building. It grew woodier, extra spiced, and no more fragrant with out sweetening.
4 hours into the adventure, it grew to become richer, extra balsamic, and hotter with calmly spiced, creamy woods, heat resins, and wealthy vanilla. The drydown was once comfortable amber with heat vanilla.
For trying out, I used 1/3 of a zero.7ml pattern vial dabbed to the bottom and topside of my wrist house on my left arm. I used an unscented moisturizer previous to making use of the fragrance as this could also be my swatching arm (aka, extremely parched at any given second) as I discovered fragrance didn’t dangle smartly right here differently.
It lasted for 8 hours till it was once a skin-scent and about 12 hours earlier than it was once fairly tricky to come across on my pores and skin. The sillage and projection had been average with the sillage shedding extra noticeably inside of two hours.
I choose Ambre Precieux over Ambre Mythique;, which is darker and richer so far as ambers pass, however I’m guessing the addition of lavender simply didn’t pull me in right here.
