I bought this when I met the woman who created it! After our meeting (long story) I stopped into a Bath and Body Works store and tried it on. It is fabulous! Not cloying at all, like some ambers can be. It is a very original take on Amber/Oriental. The price is right too.
I'm so proud of my friend and can't wait to see what she creates next!
Here's some background: I showed up at the hospital to be induced into labor. All the beds were full, so the nurses asked my husband and I to take a quick jaunt to the nearby mall while another bed was freed, and I'm so glad that happened.
I'm a gourmand perfume wearer - I enjoy just about anything that smells like a baked good. However, the only scent I wear from BBW is Vanilla Bean Noel because Warm Vanilla Sugar smells a little too much like rubbing alcohol for my taste, and leaves me with a headache.
The Husband and I weren't planning on buying anything, but there was a great sale on candles in the store, so we stopped in. I noticed Sensual Amber on the shelf and took a whiff. I'm not the type to use bombastic phrasing, but it blew me away. I bought an EDT and two body splashes right then.
Better than a year later, I still adore this scent. And I've finally come to the conclusion that a woman pushing 30 probably shouldn't wear foodie-type perfume anymore. I've read women here who say they only wear it during fall and winter, but I disregard that rule. The scent makes me feel like woman, and has won me over to woody/oriental perfumes. I honestly can't say enough about Sensual Amber other than I've replaced Estee Lauder's Pleasures Delight with it my as signature scent.
The whole Sensual Amber line is great. It's definitely what I would describe as sensual, sexy, mature, and warm.
This is a very sexy scent, and the EDT is a good formula. It's great for fall & winter since it's so warm. The reason I gave it 4 stars is because the smell can get very cloying and overwhelming if you use too much, and you lose the more delicate notes that you can detect in lighter doses of it. Use sparingly! continued >>
I really like this perfume, but for some reason i dont reach for it everyday because it just does not fit my idea of an "everyday" perfume. I would think this perfume is better suited for a date night or something. Anyway i really like it. It does smell alot like vanilla so if you dont enjoy vanilla you might want to stay away. I find it to be sweet and warm.
Sexy, warm and slightly basic. I am glad I picked this up. It is a perfect scent for fall/winter and on me it feels warm and seductive. I adore these kind of scents and I would probably buy this one again.
Love this scent. Since the body lotions are too overpowering when you first apply them, I find this is a good way to have the scent faint, but not too strong.
I absolutely love this scent. I suggest that you purchase the eau de toilette vs. the perfume because it is a strong scent and the perfume version may be overpowering. This is my favorite autumn fragrance & I absolutely recommend it! Also, its pretty inexpensive. continued >>
This is a very sexy fall/winter scent which I have gotten many compliments on. Probably too overpowering to wear during any warm weather, a little goes a long way.
I friggin love this stuff so much my bf says i smell like a granny but i still keep wearing it cuz i LOVE how delish and vanilla-y this smells. lol when i spray this on my scarves it wafts up to my nose all day-love it!
