I’ve been playing around with the Huitieme Art review and I admit that I haven’t tried them all yet, but I have worn Ambre Céruléen and here’s what I think.
Ambre Céruléen opens as a sweet resinous mix. It’s distinctively opopanax with amber. And it’s powdery in a resinous way. And then what I started to like starts to go astray. I get soapy wet wipes. And it continues to get powdery and powdery. And eventually, it turns into Johnson & Johnson’s baby powder. And if you sniff hard enough, you might get some ground clove. But, overall it’s clean powder. So much powder…
On a day of wearing this one, a friend asked me if I was carrying a diaper bag 🙁 Yeah, I could see that. This is like baby soap, lotion and powder. The bonus for this fragrance is that it is incredibly long-wearing. Unfortunately, I don’t want to smell like this.
Notes listed include opoponax, fève tonka, sandalwood and Moroccan verbena. PERFUMER – Pierre Guillaume
Give Ambre Ceruleen a try if you like powdery fragrances. It’s one of the cleanest powdery fragrances that I have ever worn. And of course, try it if you like amber…powdery amber.
An 1.7 oz bottle of Huitieme Art Ambre Ceruleen retails for $135 and is available at LuckyScent.
Victoria’s Final EauPINON – A SUPER powdery, clean amber. This is a very 1 dimensional fragrance that I didn’t enjoy wearing. Very, very boring.
