Captured in Amber is a perfume in EnVoyage Perfumes’ Souvenir de Chocolate Trio. This is a scent that is meant to “evoke the Victorian era fetish for the Orient“. And I get that from this sweet, animalic amber that uses materials from around the globe.
Captured in Amber is an amber gourmand. It opens as a rich, sticky honey that is sweet and animalic. It wears as a sweet yet animalic amber with dark, spicy Mexican hot chocolate. The best word to describe this heart is “syrupy”. It’s a rich and sweet amber. The dry-down of Captured in Amber is both sweet and savory. It’s chocolate with a salty ambergris with a hint of patchouli.
A local coffee shop used to do an “amber mocha”. This was a mocha with honey, clove and peru balsam. I’d order it with almond milk. It was rich, but a really great treat to have occasionally. And being a perfume lover, I was delighted to see it on the menu. Captured in Amber reminds me so much of this “amber mocha” I used to order. And this is a wonderful thing. And now I’m craving that mocha now more than ever…
Notes listed include Persian amber and dark chocolate. Launched in 2014. PERFUMER – Shelley Wallington
