If you like the warmth and softness of amber scents, you are bound to love L’Artisan Parfumeur L’Eau d’Ambre EDT. It is a simplified amber fragrance. The L’Artisan Parfumeur website says:
A formula that blends the most precious materials used by perfumers – balm and amber. A soft, rounded, mysterious, Oriental tale from the pages of “A Thousand and One Nights.”
Overall, L’Eau d’Ambre is a soft, sheer amber. It opens with a sharp geranium. However, most of the wear is a powdery, sweet amber woven with a boozy vanilla. It’s warm, cozy and smooth. It’s not an overly complicated fragrance, but it’s a comforting, well-done amber. It’s like creamy, amber minimalism.
Notes listed include: geranium, patchouli, vanilla, and amber. Launched in 1978. PERFUMER – Jean-Francis Laporte
Give L’Artisan Parfumeur L’Eau d’Ambre EDT a try if you like amber. Or fragrances like Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier Ambre Precieux, Huitieme Art Myrrhiad, L’Artisan Ambre Extreme and/or Le Labo Labdanum 19. I like to wear it alone but I have heard from other perfumistas that it layers nicely with just about anything.
Projection and longevity are above average for an EDT. However, the feel of the fragrance is “sheer”. It’s not a suffocating, heavy amber.
The 1.7 oz bottle retails for $95 at Beautyhabit. Samples are also available for purchase.
