Montale – Blue Amber

Perfume: Blue Amber
Perfumer: Montale
Source: Luckyscent
Size: 1mL

Luckyscent Notes: Italian bergamot, bourbon geranium, coriander, patchouli, vetiver, amber, vanilla

Date: 8/21/07 Weather: 69 degrees, evening

Wearing: At first whiff – amber and a hint of vanilla. In 3 minutes, turns minty. 4 minutes – marine notes appear with amber. Almost salty. 5 minutes – develops a powderiness and a floral note. 10 minutes – floral and coriander seed. 15 minutes – a touch soapy. 30 minutes – some bergamot, corander, vetiver(?), amber. Becomes more herbal and citrusy.

Comments: Really neat fragrance at the beginning. Interesting notes. Keep wanting to see where this goes. I received a very full sample. Think this would be nice on the boyfriend (if he’d let this put me on him). Amber throughout the transitions. It develops a slight (but not unpleasant) rubbery note after a few hours.

Date: 9/4/07 Weather: 68 degrees

Comments: Still fabulous! Lasts forever. No rubbery note this time. Awesome!

Date: 11/26/07 Weather: 55 degrees and rainy

Comments: More aquatic at the top this time. Still has that fantastic dry-down. Tried it out with the Bowling boys. Fearless Leader thought it smelled like Catawba wine. Bowling Boyfriend became more touchy-feely than usual (he’s not that touchy-feely).

One Response to “Montale – Blue Amber”

  1. When naming his perfume “Blue Amber” Pierre Montale did probably not expect that Blue Amber did exist. Maybe he considered it an oxymoron and therefore a specially attractive name. Hey, but google it and see what you find: blueamber.com. And did you know that Blue Amber really has a different smell than regular amber?
