Amir by Laura Tonatto
The second wearing days later produced the same aroma and results. If I didn't know better, what I'm smelling is a Jovan masculine from the late 1960's or early 1970's. I'm really disappointed with Amir. This has a cologne vibe throughout and periodically I get whiffs of Jovan's Sex Appeal.
Really? Truth be told, I like certain bargain fragrances, but I'm sure not looking for it in an EDP Niche fragrance. Amir comes off as a drugstore fragrance. Like most of you, when I sample parfums, I'm anticipating creativity, maybe a little daring and certainly much more than what I'm getting here.
What's the most disappointing is the fact that Amir doesn't smell quite as good as some of the vintage Jovans. I'm not try to blast Laura Tonatto because I respect her work and enjoy some of her other releases. This, however smells like a budget scent and I cannot get past that while wearing Amir. For approximately $1 per ml., I need more.
Lusciouscargo has the notes listed as : Myrrh, Petitgrain, Lime wood, Orange essence, Incense, Amber, Musk, Woods and Spices.
I recommend a definite try-b-4-u-buy on this one. It's no mystery that I won't be considering Amir for my wardrobe.
