Inspired by the amber colored resin I saw on my walk this afternoon I wanted to tell you about an iconic amber fragrance, Serge Lutens' Ambre Sultan. It opens a little herbal, almost medicinal and it gradually transforms. There is a lovely incense note that balances the richness of the amber. It's a fascinating fragrance, magical even, it cannot be rushed. Take your time with it if you have a chance to smell it. Only the far drydown (7 hours after spraying) was not to my taste, the fragrance fell apart and became too sweet, too soft. I prefer the roughness and surprises of the opening and middle. I guess the solution is simple, re-apply!
