Parfum d’Empire Ambre Russe Eau de Parfum has a biting, vodka on the rocks form of opening that may catch one off-guard initially, however it’s quickly overtaken by scorching, heat spices, slight earthiness, and amber. I detected a be aware of candy tea by way of the opening and center phases, which was initially complemented by wealthy amber and spiced smoke. The leather-based emerged when the tea subsided, which was nearer to the drydown, when Ambre Russe was heat, very spicy amber and incense (although I believe the incense generated extra “spice” than smokiness general).

What does Ambre Russe Odor Like?
The opening was white vodka poured over ice with a splash of spiced amber–it had that chunk of alcohol within the first minute–that was subsumed by boozy sweetness laced with cinnamon and coriander and had a contact of earthiness. The incense rapidly adopted, swirled across the wealthy amber and heady mixture of spice in a well-blended haze the place the notes seamlessly blended into one another.
There was a touch of candy tea spilled over the spiced, resinous amber infused with incense that turned extra pronounced after 10 minutes of damage. The tea be aware amplified over the following half hour, whereas the amber turned much less treacly and extra smoked and spiced, joined by the depth of the incense. On the finish of the primary hour, the ruggedness of leather-based soaked up the black tea, which appeared to amplify the incense and smothered the amber considerably. It ended up being one of many spicier, extra cinnamon-ladened ambers I’ve tried.
It lasted for 5 hours till it was a skin-scent and about 10 hours earlier than it was fairly troublesome to detect on my pores and skin. The sillage and projection had been reasonable with the sillage dropping quicker than the projection after two hours of damage.
This was one other scent beneficial to me by a pal once I needed to discover amber as a be aware. I loved completely, however Profumum’s Ambra Aurea nonetheless appealed to me extra (each time I put on it, I’m continually sniffing my wrists to inhale and indulge the perfume) between the 2, however Ambre Russe would work for somebody who needs much less golden amber and extra spiced amber.
For testing, I used half of a 0.7ml pattern vial dabbed to the underside and topside of my wrist space on my left arm. I used an unscented moisturizer previous to making use of the scent as that is additionally my swatching arm (aka, extremely parched at any given second) as I discovered scent didn’t maintain effectively right here in any other case.
Ambre Russe is on the market for $115 for 50ml.
If attainable, I extremely suggest making an attempt a perfume earlier than buying a full bottle as a result of perfume can put on in another way simply due to pores and skin chemistry. Pores and skin chemistry can impact not simply the longevity of a perfume but additionally what notes are distinguished or hidden.
