Ambre Gris

image

At first it seems Ambre Gris is a heady, if exceptionally well blended scent (Pierre Balmain 2008) but it stealthily and quietly demures into a self-possessed serenity…  The pink pepper is grand and flanked by benzoin, myrrh, luscious florals, and a brilliantly certain but subtle guaiac wood…  It’s sweet, warm, almost salty, earthy and yet very refined.  Ambre Gris is really quite stunning…

Nose: Guillaume Flavigny.

Top notes: pink pepper, benzoin, myrrh, and cinnamon.  Middle notes: tuberose and immortelle.  Base notes: ambergris, white musk, guaiac wood, and benzoin.
