Ambre NoirAmbre Noir

Dusky labdanum is at the heart of this rich and sultry scent, with cedar and sandalwood in the base and subtle deep rose weaving between the woods. Accents of smoky agarwood, light incense, dry vetiver, and soft leather complete the composition. For those who enjoy the dark side of amber.

Perfumer's Comments: I love labdanum and wanted Ambre Noir to highlight labdanum in the context of a dark, rich, woodsy, and smooth amber perfume. Working with labdanum absolute is a delight to the senses; it's a thick golden substance with a wonderful musky, woodsy, amber aroma. I held the vanilla in Ambre Noir to a minimum and added interest and complexity to the labdanum with woods, incense, moss, and subtle leather.
