Ambre Dore by Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier
Ambergris, Coriander, Oud, Saffron.
Myrrh, Sandalwood, Vetiver.
Recently, I was thinking of revising my review of Ambre Precieux by this house. I like updating them because my taste has evolved, with some of my past reviews being rather blunt and not descriptive enough for my own liking. I ended up buying a bottle of Ambre Dore instead and since they are siblings, I've concluded the AP review is unnecessary at this time.
Ambre Dore, from the initial spray, is balsamic. I've read reviews that this is nothing more than Ambre Precieux with Oud thrown in. I disagree, but that's simply my opinion. The ratio of resins, smoke, woods and earth tones distinguish these as two separate entities. Yes, there are similarities and yes, they are no doubt siblings. Those who thoroughly enjoy AP however may not like wearing Ambre Dore.
Sillage and longevity are very good, so a definitive thumbs up from Aromi for MPG's foray into the oud arena. As always, a sample wear is highly recommended.
