An updated Emeraude or Obsession. I prefer Fancy Nights to Obsession. It's not like Samsara at all. Nice job Jess. I agree with those below who said it was smokey; it smells like incense smoke among other things.
Fragrances -Kenzo - Kenzo Amour Indian Holi (Limited Edition)

Every time I went to Sephora I'd test it. I fell in love and bought it, and I'm so glad I did. Like all Kenzos, the bottle is a gorgeous sculpture. The scent is very comforting and (I hate to say this, because I don't want to turn anyone off to the perfume) it has the slightest hint of Johnson's baby oil. Indian Holi smells warm, clean, sexy. Try it.
Put me on Team Hate. Can't stand the roasting, burning, tarry note.

It's a nice scent (has an interesting pine or forest thing going on), but as others have stated it's a copy of Calvin Klein's Euphoria. Save your money and buy Euphoria which is more complex and sophisticated.
O.K. this one is wild. Unlike other perfumes, this one doesn't change much from beginning to end. I didn't know anything about this one, it was a blind sniff and my reaction was: vanilla pudding and play-doh with a side shot of root beer. It is strange, yet compelling. I thought "I could never were this out", yet I find myself sniffing my arm every 30 seconds. So, go figure. Found out after the sample that is named after Italian suger-coated almond candies...For whatever reason, this one is haunting me.
Booze. Then grass and leaves with a pinch of wet earth.

This wasn't a love at first sniff for me, but each time I sample it, I grow to understand it a bit more. It's pretty sophisticated. At a certain point in the drydown I'm reminded of Samsara - maybe sandalwood? Although the rest of it is completely different. Great scent if you can afford it.

Loves it. Musky cedar chest. Wish it was stronger and lasted longer. Must own it. Now.
Smells wierd, like medical wrappings and rubber. This is just wierd. I can't imagine anyone wearing this unless they are dressing up as a nurse or doctor for Halloween.
Hate the CUMIN!!! start, love the muuuuuuuuuusk drydown...
Smells exactly like Tibetan incense. Authentic Tibetan Buddhist incense. This is what I wanted Dzongka to smell like. Ambre Sultan is exotic, smokey, herbal and transformative. Wear it and feel your karma ripen.
First word: pumpkin. Second word: pie.
Wanted to love this one. After Luca's description, I really, really wanted to love this one. For me, it is a wonderful fragrance for an older, distinguished, well educated gentleman. There is something paternal about the scent. This may be one that I could grow with and wear after some time, but as of right now I would feel like a grandfather. It actually smells very, very good, very distintive, but just not for me right now.

Sick it is so amazing. I just recieved a sample in the mail yesterday and spent the next 30 minutes searching for the best price for the 1.7 oz. bottle. It smells sooooooooooooooo good. Hypnotic. This is for me "the one" I've been searching for. Can't wait to get a big old bottle to treasure and sniff and wear and love.
