A soft amber cloud

Fragrance Fan, fragrancex.com
12 November 2011
  • Summary: This fragrance is a first very sweet, but soon dries down to a soft amber cloud. Very wearable. When I don't know what to spritz on in the morning, this is a go-to fragrance. Good for all occasions. Clings to a soft sweater or scarf, but that's alright. More an autumn/winter fragrance than one for the heat of the summer, except possibly at night for a date.
  • Pros: Draws Compliments, Feminine, Great Smell, Great Value, Long-Lasting, Not Overpowering, Sensual
  • Cons: A bit too sweet

  • Summary: To begin, the name is misleading. Although the amber note is widely used (we all know why) and to be more precise, abused in perfumery, the big majority of us, the fragrance fans, have more or less a general idea of how the right amber note smells, evolves and projects. Well, with AdC, we have the case of an amber wannabe scent : a glowing citrus fruity (ginger and pink grapefruit perhaps) and sweet (vanilla, musk), plus a light floral accord, that all together struggle...

  • Summary: If you have Hermes taste on a discount shopping budget, Ambre de Cabochard might work for you! This one smells like a great substitute for Ambre Narguile of the Hermessence line of fragrances. Fruity and very sweet, when the sugar burns off after the first couple hours, the amber shows itself. Strikes me as the amber base of the old Emeraude by Coty. I found a bottle of this at a local discounter for $9.99. A bargain if you like your amber super sweet.

  • Summary: This is simply a delightful amber. I almost could stop right there. But of course I wont. Hints of Floral and a touch of Fruit make just the perfect caress in the opening. Leather speaks up, giving it a unisex depth. Spices are artfully intertwined throughout, and lest we forget: amber, amber, amber. This is rich, stately, yet also comforting and well rounded. Appropriate for ladies (not girls), and quite right for gents with "somewhere to go".

  • Summary: I really like this! It reminds me alot of V pour Homme by Valentino, with a little extra oomph! The drydown is VERY similar, the mids are comparable (VPH is a bit more spicy with a cumin note), but the top notes of this one are much more extreme - dare I say better. The cotton candy effect is most certainly present throughout in both. In my opinion, it is a very unisex fragrance.

  • Summary: I had high hopes for this - amber and leather! But they took a beautiful, light leather fragrance and pimped it out with hyper-sweet vanilla (I couldn't even find any amber notes under the cotton candy smell). Ambre de Cabochard smells like any of the hundreds of benign, sticky-sweet gourmands making the rounds in department stores and other chain establishments trying to cater to a wider crowd. Gres should have know better.

  • Excerpt: Так, оказывается, сложно описать любимый аромат словами. Чем сильнее нравится, тем сложнее выделить отдельные ноты. Попробую рассказать ассоциации:чёрно-белое кино, тёмно-красная помада, черный элегантный костюм,ярко красный занавес, сцена в старом театре,сериал "Твин Пикс". В начале слегка похож на диоровскую Дюну. Далее становится чуть строже, что-то шипровое проскальзывает. Но это сладкий шипр, не грубый ничуть. Да, ретро-стиль. Да, "сладкая грозовая туча".

  • Summary: Dass man Früchte oder Ingwer kandieren kann, ist ja klar. Aber dass man auch Rauch kandieren kann und außerdem Blümchen und Holz, das macht Ambre de Cabochard vor. Gleich zu Beginn ist da ein Potpourri von Obstdüften, aber alle eingedickt und gezuckert, so dass man bei aller Frucht keine Fruchtigkeit riechen kann.
