Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier Ambre Dore Fragrance Overview

Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier Ambre Dore Fragrance Overview

Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier Ambre Dore begins off fairly spicy and resinous with pungent, animalic oud and a salty undertone. Whereas the oud was short-lived, it was a unclean, darkish, and earthy oud which will really feel “an excessive amount of” for individuals who aren’t full-on oud followers. The center was marked by smoke and leather-based, after which after that, it was primarily a variety of amber, which appeared on the powdery, musky facet to me. The notes within the perfume are:

  • prime notes: styrax, geranium, sage
  • coronary heart notes: amber, oud, coriander, saffron
  • base notes: sandalwood, vetiver, myrrh

It opened with a dry, resinous spice–darkish, chewy, balsamic–that lasted a minute earlier than it grew earthy, salty, and animalic. That preliminary burst of spice and resinous sweetness disappeared, completely overrun by darkish, dank oud harking back to hay, leather-based, and mucking out horse stalls and the sweat that drips down one’s forehead from placing within the work.

Wealthy, spiced amber teased alongside the sides, making an attempt to merge and soften the oud, and the 2 danced with one another; it didn’t really feel like a battle the place they clashed however fairly they had been making an attempt to compromise and are available collectively as a unit. For those who began mentally backing away from this perfume due to the pungent oud, the amber envelopes the oud in a detailed hug inside 10 minutes. The oud then added a layer of earthy, nearly medicinal, backing to the amber.

Given quarter-hour to develop on my pores and skin, Ambre Dore was darker; smoky leather-based, contact of coriander, and the beginnings of spiced resins emerged. It turned a part-musky, part-powdery amber with leathery undertones by the top of the primary hour of wear and tear. The leather-based felt cooler, drier, and smokier for the following hour earlier than fading right into a drydown of barely musky amber, delicate sweetness, and faint woods. Because the drydown went on, the amber turned much less musky and a contact sweeter.


For testing, I used 1/3 of a 0.7ml pattern vial dabbed 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 nicely right here in any other case. 


It lasted for eight hours till it was a skin-scent and about 12 hours earlier than it was fairly tough to detect on my pores and skin. The sillage and projection had been reasonable with the sillage dropping quicker than the projection after three hours of wear and tear.

Private Ideas

I’ve discovered that I like a clearer amber fairly than one that’s powdery and/or musky; not that I’m antagonistic, merely that it’s not my desire. The punchy oud was a shock on this one, too, and completely caught me off-guard–at first I used to be completely pondering, “Wow, this isn’t an amber perfume in any respect!” however alas, the amber did win out with out having to work too laborious.
