Ambre Gris (Repost)


At first it seems Ambre Gris is an intense if exceptionally well blended scent (Pierre Balmain 2008) but it stealthily and quietly demures into self-possessed serenity…  The pink pepper is noticeable and flanked by benzoin, myrrh, luscious florals and a brilliantly certain but also 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.
