Today I am going with the wonderfully sensual Ambre Russe by Parfum d'Empire. It has been a long time since I fell really hard for an amber fragrance, it was my first love, and sadly over the years it has fallen out of favor with my skin becoming drier, and the ambers that I adored ending up getting a strange overly sweet tar note in the dry down that I hated. In fact within the last months I swapped those ambers out (Anne Pliska, L'Occitane Amber, Sage Machado Amber) and the irony is I have once again found an amber to love which actually features a note that usually turns into pure curry sweat on me: cumin. I can't get over just how gorgeous this scent is while being incredibley rich, sensual, and extravagent it is also wonderfully wearable. I suspect I really need a bottle of this.
