Am I the only one who detects a pronounced creamsicle-like orange note in the opening of this fragrance? It fades away after about 20 minutes, leaving a nice amber-vanilla in its wake. Final verdict: If Love's made nag champa, this is what it would smell like. Baby Nag Champa. Lovers of soft amber or nag champa scents should definitely try this one. (Unfortunately I have trouble with nag champa.)

The notes are vanilla, amber, musk, patchouli, bergamot and geranium, but it's not a heavy scent (like Lutens' Ambre Sultan). Nor is it a gourmand, sweet vanilla or even warm "cozy" squishy vanilla/musk like Lea St. Barth...Anne Pliska is a very cold, soft amber, mental image is powdery snow on marble. It warms up (barely) as it goes along, with a bit of musk coming into play with the amber. There is a definite nose-tickling feathery aspect to the amber in this, my nose itches. After an hour, vanilla comes out and takes a bit of the chill off, but still, it's a frosty little scent. Wonderful. I sometimes find that certain ambers are perceived by my peabrain as powdery; this borders on it, but not quite, so I think that it may please both staunch non-powdery types like myself AND those who like scents like Keiko Mecheri's Loukhoum and LV's Teint de Neige. Adding: after a couple of hours, it moves into that moody, evocative Angelique Encens and/or chilly Messe de Minuit direction...it doesn't smell like them at all, but it's definitely a next door neighbor. Interesting color to it, as well...a very dark red/amber. Anne Pliska's been out for 18 years, and they've kept distribution very small. It can be ordered by phone at (800) 959-9324; two oz. EDP is $50, 1/4 oz. parfum is $65, six ounce body cream is $48. US shipping is $5.50 (international shipping is on a case-by-case basis?). It's also available at some Nordstroms. Unfortunately, there's no sampling program in place right now, but that may change.
