Well Crafted, but not for me
Ambre Nomade is everything it promises to be, so I feel bad giving it only 2 stars (I just want this bloody algorithm to actually work for me one day!). It's too sweet for my tastes, and just slightly more mature than I'd prefer (but please, not the dreaded 'old lady' insult people here like to tag on so many great fragrances! Sorry, I digress...) so I'm thinking of giving it to my mother-in-law-but I think even she might not be the type. What I am trying to say, (in this very rambling review) is that this is a loud scent (the ginger! The rosemary!), and you definitely have to be up for carrying it. The sillage is medium/strong (what my tropical roots tell me a perfume is supposed to be) and longevity is at least five hours. It stands up to the brand's quality and for once I'm not at all concerned that Scentbird sent me a dupe (or worse!). In summary: it's worth the price, I learned I don't like apricot in some interpretations, and that though personally I love how the sage shines through--I just think I would prefer it in a more fresh, maybe aquatic, rendition. I like the citrus layer, but not the powdery aspects. If you love layered perfumes that tell a story, give it a try before you buy. I did enjoy sniffing out the apple and understated lavender; not an office scent for sure, and maaaaybe unisex for the right man (IMO).
