To start off this week, I am wearing Histoires de Parfums Ambre 114.
Histoires de Parfums Ambre 114 opens up rather spicy and sweet, like a spiced dessert drink.
Immediately, it becomes more sweet than spicy, with the woodsy smell of sandalwood, or patchouli, announcing their presence every now and then. This might be the most complex part of the perfume as you can smell several notes, appearing and disappearing, like children playing hide and seek.
Then gradually, all those notes would all give way to the drydown of creamy and sweet musk and vanilla.
Histoires de Parfums Ambre 114 is most suitable for cold, dreary days. It’s as comforting as sipping hot, spicy, creamy eggnog, while lounging on your cushy sofa bed, while watching the gray and cloudy skies outside.
Despite the vanilla, I must say that it is not too sweet, nor too heady, and never headache inducing. Again, it is comforting.
As an eau de parfum, it lasts long. A little definitely goes a long way.
Histoires de Parfums lists thyme, sandalwood, cedar, patchouli, amber, vanilla, musk, tonka bean, among others, as the notes of Ambre 114.
Here in Manila, it is available at Adora Greenbelt 5. Or you may order online at www.histoiresdeparfums.com
