Parfum d’Empire – Ambre Russe

Perfume: Ambre Russe
Perfumer: Parfum d’Empire
Source: Luckyscent
Size: 1mL

Luckyscent Notes: tea, incense, vodka, champagne, cumin, coriander, cinnamon, ambergris, vanilla, leather

Date: 9/4/07 Weather: 82 degrees

Wearing: Amber, Orange Blossom, Wood (Cedar). Begins to dry down to an incense / amber combo. Some leather funk. 10 minutes in – becomes a smoky barnyard – boots, horseshit and hay. One arm becomes mildewed clothing, cinnamon, leather, vanilla and incense on the other. Makes me wonder what is on the 1 arm.

Comments: The top seems tea like and fruity. Not catching the vodka note. Just a fruity tea and amber scent. Then it gets weird. Had to scrub it off.

Date: 10/9/07 Weather: N/A

Comments: Top still a bit fruity (orange oil and tea). More alcoholic this time. Still gets really odd after 30 minutes or so. More tea. Definitely a complex love/hate all in the same wearing. A very chilly amber. Not entirely sure what to make of this perfume.

Date: 3/16/09 Weather: 45 degrees, rainy

Comments: Amber, a bit more herbal this time. More leather. Dries down to a vanillic amber after 2 hours. Gone in less than 6. Much more likable on this wearing. No fruity notes.
