Les Indemodables Ambre Supreme was contemporary, mild, and like a veil of brined jasmine with a brighter, spiced opening, sweeter, orange blossom coronary heart, and smoky, earthy base. It was a pores and skin scent nearly from the start and had a salty, cool really feel all through.
- high notes: aldehydes, clary sage, cardamom, pink pepper
- coronary heart notes: neroli, Moroccan jasmine, patchouli
- base notes: immortelle, ambergris
The opening was filled with aldehydes and fresh-blooming jasmine in spring’s early mild with a peppery tickle on the finish of an inhale. There was a saltiness of the ambergris mixed with the aldehydes made it appear aquatic. Tender neroli subtle via the jasmine, mixing the 2 collectively and including a contact of sweetness.
quarter-hour into the event, Ambre Supreme turns darker with an earthy, herbaceous inexperienced twist with the jasmine dominating the neroli. There remained a saltiness all through the subsequent two hours, nevertheless it was primarily jasmine with patchouli beneath and a smoky, barely-there honey depth from the immortelle.
The scent appeared particularly ethereal, nearly like a gossamer veil of brine and jasmine with just a little soiled patchouli whispering within the background. It weakened considerably after 4 hours of damage, and the drydown was barely smoky, earthy, and salty–all fairly refined given how onerous it was to detect the scent at that time.
For testing, I used three sprays (they appeared… unusually minimal) of a 3ml pattern vial utilized to the underside and topside of my wrist space on my left arm. I used an unscented moisturizer previous to making use of the scent as that is additionally my swatching arm (aka, extremely parched at any given second) as I discovered scent didn’t maintain effectively right here in any other case.
It lasted for 3 hours till it was a skin-scent and about eight hours earlier than it was fairly tough to detect on my pores and skin. The sillage and projection had been mild to start with and weakened shortly after making use of.
Ambergris is usually replicated by synthetics in perfumery as of late, as it’s an extremely uncommon and costly ingredient to acquire in its pure kind, however this perfume says it has a ten% dosage of “specifically sourced and tinctured utilizing [their] proprietary ultrasound extraction.” This was truly what satisfied me to strive a pattern of it!
I anticipated higher shifts within the journey, and I positively didn’t anticipate the jasmine coming via as strongly because it did. I’m nonetheless working my method into white florals, so this one shouldn’t be on my record to purchase simply given how robust the jasmine was!
