Not for me
First spray...whoa! Too jarring, almost peppery. Then, I waited for the dry down. I was hoping for a creamier, vanilla-tinged amber floral. This is SO dry and masculine on me. 30 minutes later: it's sweet, but not in a pleasant way. I can see how others might like this fragrance, but it's not for my particular skin chemistry.

Powdery Grandma
Woodsy - NO, Sexy - NO, Date Night - NEVER. This fragrance smelled nothing like Vanilla, Amber, Nutmeg or Tonka Bean. It smelled straight up baby powder and flowery! Not even the dry down revealed anything sexy. I have had issues with the fragrances lasting lately, but this one stuck around forever, and I didn't want it to. I'm over 50 and this makes me feel like I'm 70! Whoever reviewed that 50 years old would like this, no way...we don't!

A fine amber scent
A warm musky scent with a rose mid note - a fine scent and very traditional. I prefer my perfume a little lighter and fresher, more green and citrus, with a wood base, than warm and floral with a musk base. The scent profile tends to make me nauseous and Ambre 114 does not, so it's a good balance of notes and even works nicely on my skin chemistry. On the whole I would recommend if you like musky florals, but it's a scent I'll rarely be in the mood to wear.

Baby Powder
First of all. I love the name, it’s inviting. The base aromas provided by Scentbird are what drew me into this fragrance. Excepting some spice and musky sweetness. I always enjoy anything with vanilla, amber, coffee, musk and coconut. I had placed this at the top of my list eager to try it on! However, once applied it was very baby powder like. This is definitely a fragrance that you’d have to mix with another to balance out the strong baby powder essence.

Disclaimer: I have a really cool grandma
I've been avoiding writing this review because I hate to regurgitate the lazy "old lady" description, but here I go. When I first smelled it I was reminded of playing with dolls on my grandparents' powder blue shag carpet in their basement-- honestly, while nostalgic, pretty stale and unpleasant. I got really lucky a few weeks ago when I decided to give it a spritz on my chest underneath the gold mustard seed necklace my grandma wore in 1971. WOW. Vintage, sexy, experienced, assertive. Must wear with confidence.

It literally smells like my grandmother.
People who are calling this the “old lady scent” are exactly right. It smells exactly like a scent my grandmother wore, no joke. But it’s not as overpowering IMO. One spritz only, if you’re going to wear it. It’s not for me, I thought I’d like it because pretty much anything Amber checks off my boxes, but the Amber isn’t what comes through.

Rich, spicy, oriental amber
This is a fabulous amber, second only in my mind to Goutal's Ambre Fetiche. The opening was abrupt and almost off-putting—the nutmeg is a bit in-your-face for the first minute or two, but then the parade of delights begins. There's a dry, woody phase that's vetiver-forward, which I wasn't expecting in an amber fragrance, but it does a lovely job of balancing the the patchouli and rose that anchor the heart. The whole beautiful mix sets the stage for one of the most creamy, redolent ambers I've smelled. When it finally settles down, in my case after about four hours, the amber floats over a bed of vanilla and tonka bean. It's just lovely...the amber projects a bit while the vanilla/tonka rests on the skin. The musk in Ambre 114 is earthy-powdery and rather quiet. I think if you spray this on and hate it—do yourself a favor and let it mellow for a couple of hours. It's just lovely. Although I am wearing it on the hottest August day and still enjoying it, I think this will be an absolute favorite in fall and winter. I do see where some reviewers might consider this a "mature" fragrance (I reject the 'smelly grandma' characterization with every fiber of my being), because you do need familiarity with complex scents and patience to wear this confidently. It is not a flirty floral or squeaky clean scent, which are definitely easier to wear, if unremarkable IMO. It is a rich, layered, sophisticated fragrance that reminds me of the original, iconic Shalimar I loved on my own mother when I was a little girl. I give this 7/10 sillage, 8/10 longevity, and 9/0 "wow" factor.

Good god.
I would give this scent less than one star if I could. It is so awful. I did not smell any of the notes it’s supposed to have besides rose and some horrible powdery smell. No disrespect to older women but holy crap this smells like the worst grandmothers perfume in the world. I wouldn’t be caught dead wearing it and I absolutely cannot stand it at all. Can’t even gift it because I don’t know anyone who would want to smell like this.

I bought this on a whim outside of my subscription. I initially saw notes that were similar to a scent that I adored, but I was kinda disappointed when I received this. Don’t get me wrong, this is a beautiful scent, but it’s probably for a more mature audience. It has a powdery smell to it, with some sweet undertones. The powdery scent overshadows the other notes in it though. I tried it on me, and like other reviews, it is reminiscent of an elderly woman. I’m hoping to gift this to someone because this perfume isn’t suited for me.

I really enjoy this as a cold weather/special occasion fragrance. Upon first application, it's very strong & (as many other reviews put it) old lady smell. It dries down to a very beautiful, velvety amber that last forever. It's a scent that makes me want to wear warm sweaters and glittery earrings.

Almost nailed it
I was really excited for this because I love their 1899 fragrance and I LOVE amber. This doesn't strike me as amber or vanilla at all- to me it smells like powder, incense and an old bookstore. It's not bad, but it's not at all like something I would purchase a bottle of or want to wear regularly. I'll wear it to work or to casual events. I could also see this giving some people a headache if they are sensitive to heavy smells.

This fragrance did not suit me at all. I agree with other reviews that the smell reminds me of something older people would wear. The vanilla and ambre are really cloying, choking. There was too much of a talcum powder thing going on for me to enjoy. It's not very distinguished either. I wore it exactly once, and never again.

Persistent and neutral
When i first sprayed it it reminded me of one of my grandmas, but it dried down on sweeter notes. It kind of reminded me of a more mature and ansophosticated version of the sugar sweet scent id use in high school. The only problem is that amber is not exaclty my favourite, which made me feel more neutral to it than anything else. The scent is very strong, definitely has lasting power and i would not recommend spraying too much of it.
