    Perhaps one of the most alluring and radiant amber notes I’ve tested.

    At the very beginning, on a strip at 10% in ethanol, seems quite mild, discrete…similar to Amber Core, but less fruity if you will. It could seem no more interesting than other ambers…but nevertheless… Its beauty arises when it is really dry and few hours past.

    At times it has nuances between Norlimbanol, Cashmeran and Amber Core, but all together as a single note. It’s persistent but without the harshness of Ambermax, Amber Xtreme, or Ambrocenide. I have a strip on the bedside table, and even past 36h, it exudes an alluring smell, that I don’t get with any of these, and that makes me feel so comfortable.

    Hydroxyambran when dry, it’s incredibly elegant, really persistent, and oddly much more radiant and noticeable when you are not smelling directly the blotter… A superb amber molecule, that I strongly recommend to test, and not overlook it by its initial mild character.
