L’Eau d’Ambre Extrême

Posted in

Launched in 2001 by L`Artisan Parfumeur, L’Eau d’Ambre Extrême is a deeper concentration of their L'Eau d'Ambre.

L’Eau d’Ambre Extrême opens with spices – fiery pepper, cozy cinnamon and nutmeg and sweet , resinous cardamom. It’s the cardamom that lingers on me the longest calling forth the most sheer, seductive amber accord I know - resinous, balsamy, smoky and sweet. Warm skin animates L’Eau d’Ambre Extrême, turning it into a seductive siren. When I’m not smelling my wrist, I want to. At the base, creamy vanilla intertwines with the amber so perfectly it tugs at my heart. It gets a little powdery too but sandalwood gives it dry, woody dimension that keeps the powderiness in check so that it wears well on men and women.

The drydown is a chic, elegant and refined amber. L’Eau d’Ambre Extrême is fairly minimalist and straightforward. It’s not as complex or heavy or challenging as some of the other ambers I love. And in a way, that’s what I like most about it – how it’s quiet, amber intensity creates pure olfactory pleasure.

Why delay pleasure?
