SOTD: Estee Lauder Private Collection Amber Ylang Ylang

Today I am going to do my first all day wearing of Estee Lauder's Private Collection Amber Ylang Ylang. So far in my wearings it has revealed itself to be a soft amber, very cashmere like, with use of the ever prevelant bergamot note that became popular with Dolce and Gabbana's Light Blue giving it a sparkle perfect for sunny autumn days. The ylang ylang note is beautifully rendered and wears gently on the skin the amber is akin to Ambre del Nepal's amber softly spiced with a good dose of vanilla. This I can see selling very well, very tasteful but at the same time very comforting.

Oh, you've gotten this one, have you? I am intrigued by what I'm hearing...I don't know Ambre del Nepal, so I may need to drive AYY around the block myself and compare it to ambers I do know.

Ooh how exciting you have this, I haven't seen any here yet.

It sounds like it's a great Autumn scent.

Scentscelf, the more I wore it the more I found it had a resemblance to Guerlain's L'Instant, but better done with more layers.

Rose, it definately has the perfect autumn scent quality going for it.
