This scent is deep and lovely. It stays for a very, very long time (think days not hours) and leaves an impression. I love rich amber scents and this is the perfect mix of sweet and spicy for me. It's a bold scent and your attitude should match. No, it isn't "old lady" just because it isn't drenched in citrus and florals. Think of yourself as a dark and mysterious traveler wandering through the spice markets in this perfume. Works in winter when you want something heavier, but personally I'll be wearing in the summer as well to infuse the sweltering Oklahoma heat with something much more pleasant.

The very first time I wore this perfume, I didn't know how to feel about it. It originally struck me as a bit too strong and a bit too much like cologne. I stuck with it though, and as time went on, I really started to enjoy this scent. I think I received the most compliments wearing this perfume than I have any perfume I've ever worn. For some reason, it really worked well with my body chemistry and it attracted a lot of people. It definitely has a spicy smell to it and I think it works great in winter. I would probably buy this solely based on the fact that it gets me a lot of positive attention. It's a smell people love and ask about.

Delicious fragrance, but not for the faint of heart: it's very spicy with an undercurrent of vanilla sweetness. It's also very powerful and incredibly long-lasting -- I applied two spritzes nearly 12 hours ago and, although it's mellowed quite a bit, the scent is still going strong. It's super sexy, and could definitely work as a unisex fragrance. LOVE.

I unfortunately did not care for this scent at all. So much so I haven't even used it. It's just not a sexy scent. Not sure how this became one of my recommendations. Truly wish i could send it back and get a new one because this was a waste.

I want to like this for the oriental notes, but it has an overwhelmingly powdery note which I always associate with elderly ladies in church. The vanilla doesn't suit me either. A scrubber.

I took a chance with this one because I love warm fragrances with amber in them. This fell way short. It is not feminine in any way and just has a extreme strong smell of wood with coffee undertones but the coffee is overpowered completely. I like unisex too but this is a no go.

I was really excited about this perfume, but was let down. The initial sharp note stays in my nose. Never got to smell the wonderful warm amber I read in reviews. This is a STRONG scent I could still smell it after 12 hours. Suggest this for cooler months fall/winter. Overall, this is a pass on a full size.

This is a headache inducing scent but I still occasionally wear it. These types of scent I spray on my mid back so it does not directly waft to my nose constantly. This perfume is sharp on me but others have noted that it is warm and cozy. It is a great scent on my husband. I would recommend trying it because it is nicely done.

P.S. To Jennifer, who said it reminded her of a perfume worn by her grandma, my grandma used a perfume called Tabu by Dana and, yes, it reminds me of that. Not exactly, it's a lot sweeter, where Tabu is darker, but I can definitely see that resemblance.

Love this perfume, amber and vanilla are a favorite since Comptoir Sud Pacifique. The tonka bean and nutmeg go well with it, I can always do without the benzoin, but it does create longevity and it's in my favorite perfume, My Sin. Still, I wish I could smell it without it. It is the stuff of which headaches are made. I use VERY little on my wrists; amber can be very strong even on its own, let alone with the benzoin. I suggest to the perfumery to take it out.

This scent did not appeal to me initially, however...I still tried it just because. I AM SO GLAD THAT I DID!!! Once the scent was on...it smelled amazing. My coworkers were following the origin of the scent. It is not too flowery nor is it sweet. It is very warm and mildly spicy. In addition, it is long lasting. I can spray on in the morning and it is still enduring late in the evening. Try it...you will NOT be disappointed.

I like it. It's definitely a sweet amber, but not as cloying and fussy as most ambers are. It's more refined, sweet, but not sugary or too floral. It has a warm, balanced sweetness that dries down to a powdery amber scent. Long-lasting too. One of my better choices from Scentbird.

This is a unisex fragrance. On SCENTBIRD it is solely listed under feminine, yet if you do your research, as I do, you will quickly find out it's unisex. Now on to my review. I usually try to stay clear of unisex fragrances, yey this fragrance is magnificent to say the least. Smell is a 10, it's a projection monster, and silliage is outstanding! Guys should not be afraid to try this, it's a compliment getter!

Initially it smells like that old lady at church with the handkerchief tucked in her watchband and all the starlight mints in her purse. You have to wait for the dry down to a soft, sweet, sexy scent of what seems to be amber and sandalwood. I love it just wish it was a little stronger!

Warm and voluptuous. It's a clean amber-vanilla fusion with just enough powdery softness for sophistication without the old-lady twee. This one has rocketed to the top of my personal faves.

I have gotten numerous compliments, some from my 10 year old daughter. This smells older- but not in an old lady way, it smells vintage like it completes my pin up looks (if that makes sense). I like to play with scents to complete a look and this is one to try if you enjoy vintage

I was very excited to try this scent. I love woody, spicy, and sexy fragrances, and I love amber. However, this is NOT for me. This is the epitome of a perfume for a sophisticated elderly woman. I'm in my 40's and I still think it will be another 30-40 years before this is age-appropriate. I can't even smell it again for a more detailed description because I disliked it so much. Definitely powdery.

Powdery, sweet, resinous amber. Slightly edible, with vanilla and a little spice. It's cozy and a bit sexy; I can see applying Ambre 114 to my sweaters when the weather turns colder. Not 'fresh' or 'floral' at all. I like it.

Not a fav. Immediate response resignation was the scent of a subtle talc powder. I couldn't quite describe it in its entity. More reserved, not flamboyant by any means. I guess I expected a more erotic/exotic scent. I'm looking forward to my next perfume to see if I can score dad better and more along the lines of my taste in scents. Wasn't impressed.

Exactly as described - a one note amber. It's a fairly clean but mature scent, a little powdery. I love all things amber, so I enjoy it, but it can be a little intense without any other notes to play with.

This scent is feminine, warm and powdery. It is definitely a fragrance for a woman who wishes to be perceived as classy. It is not a complicated fragrance, so if you are looking for something with a bunch of individual notes, this is not for you.

I am not a fan. At all. It manages to be sweet and musky at the same time. The vanilla is really prominent in this perfume with the dry-down being more sandalwood. Tempted to take a shower just to get this scent off me.

A gorgeous slightly spicy amber. A classy and grown up fragrance. Stays fairly close to the skin once it settles, although it does have great lasting power.
