Huitieme Art Ambre Ceruleen EDP Perfume Review

Huitieme Art Ambre Ceruleen

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 EauPINONA SUPER powdery, clean amber. This is a very 1 dimensional fragrance that I didn’t enjoy wearing. Very, very boring.

  1. agree with this…

    interestingly I think the current formulation of Shalimar EDP tends to do diaper bag on me too. 🙁

    huge tragedy.

    1. Yeah, I think that the new Shalimar does go diaper bag too. I like powdery but it’s difficult for me to NOT associate it with cheaper, functional fragrances.

    1. I’m not “giving up” on the line, but I wouldn’t go out of my way either. Personally, I don’t think of any of the others will appeal to you. Just say’n 😉

    1. At first, I thought it was an attack of my giant purse (that I’ve been carrying for 2 years BTW)…anyways, they were like “no, the smell, it smells just like wet wipes and baby powder. So, yeah.

      I have tried Manguier Metisse and I like it and there are 2 more that I like. I’m not giving up on the line. I wish they didn’t release this one. I’m hoping it’s the weakest link.

  2. I haven’t tried anything from this line. I like my amber’s diirty… So not sure this would be for me.
