Abbreviated perfume & fragrance reviews from one man's perspective

Ambra Nera by Farmacia SS. Annunziata dal 1561

1 Comment

I love amber perfumes.  I love their warmth, their other-worldliness and their ability to envelope.  Ambra Nera is no exception.  Upon application, this opens with a strong pop of cypress and eucalyptus and a slight sweetness.  From the start, this is a scent that says, “here I am.”  After a little while the vanilla comes out along with a light powdery finish.  This is an elegant amber that transports your back in time to the Italian Renaissance.  I have to say that my husband said that it makes me smell like someone’s grandmother. That comment had me worried that the scent was too feminine.  I realize that everybody has their opinion, but from my end, I absolutely love this scent and the way it made me feel and how it wore on me.  This is a unisex scent that has a light sweetness about it that could lean a bit feminine, but if you’re not afraid of unisex scents and embracing your feminine side, I highly recommend this perfume because it is truly a beautiful composition.
