Bright sunshine leaves long shadows, the sort of shadows that remind us that autumn is coming. Phoenix Botanicals Amber & Blues opens with a sharp citrus and rosewood. It’s bright but not “light”. It quickly becomes a resinous amber bringing to mind fallen leaves crunching underfoot. The weather gets chillier and you put on your favorite sweater, knee socks and boots. Amber & Blues becomes a sweeter, powdery fragrance with florals, amber and a rich, syrupy benzoin.
Amber & Blues is inspired by a walk through an autumn forest and that is exactly where it takes us.
Notes listed include rosewood, bergamot, amber, ylang-ylang, rose, vanilla, labdanum, resins and benzoin. PERFUMER – Irina Adam

Victoria’s Final EauPINION – A warm, powdery ylang-ylang amber. A good fall fragrance. It really does capture that time when late summer suddenly turns into autumn.
