A Dozen Roses: Amber Queen
Out of the blue I was contacted by this company asking me if I would like to try their new scent, Amber Queen. I of course said "sure" and they offered to send a (sadly empty, and one that I'll have to ship back..) bottle to photograph. If I was just reading the listed notes, I'd be heading for the hills:
TOP: Apricot, Clementine, Ginger
MIDDLE: Bengal Rose, Signature Rose Absolute
BASE: Amber, Myrrh
I'm glad I didn't run. It's a lovely, feminine fragrance that's almost to me the olfactory equivalent of butterfly wings. The sweetish fruits lead into the soft roses and when the amber and myrrh kick in it really sings. It's cool and summery and an easy choice in our sweltering (well, LA sweltering...) summer. It's no more me than a Pucci dress and espadrilles, but it can't always be about me, now can it?
Better yet, it's even a decently priced: $110 for 3.4 ounces. Available exclusively at Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus, coming fall 2012. My sample was from the perfumer.
