Notes: Myrrh essence, tonka bean, benzoin; myrrh resin, guaiacum wood, vetiver; absolute essence of beeswax.

This fragrance opens with myrrh framed by benzoin and tonca bean. The three notes complement each other very well; the accord is sweet but balanced, the myrrh adds a certain dry resinous quality to it that prevents the composition to smell like vanilla pudding or ice cream. As the fragrance progresses the vanillic impression diminished and I detect a faint trace of liquorice which I donít know where it stems form. Quite linear from this point on, the fragrance is interesting and quite pleasing to smell. Despite the foody connotation it is not gourmand, as the smokey quality of the myrrh prevents that. From the middevelopment on, this fragrance vaguely reminds me of Ambre Soie, but Myrrh Ardente is definitely sweeter. It is a nice fragrance but not for me. Last 6 hours on my skin.

this captivated me from the second i sprayed it.........there is this hugely medicinal rush when you first spray it that almost fizzes in your nose and i swear it smells like root beer........but a sophisticated root beer that suddenly GUSHES with this beautifully ancient smell of amber and woods and it leaves me feeling is not a girly scent at all......and it isnt a small is a very unique and large scent that lasts pretty well and seems to nip at you during the day..i love this scent and its one of my favorites.

Myrrhe Ardente smells like the inside of a box that's been used to store sheets of Papier d'Armenie and black jellybeans. I'm not sure which ingredient resembles licorice since I don't see anice listed anywhere as a note, but this isn't the screechy anice of Aimez Moi or Anisia Bella. It's just enough to give the smooth myrrh and benzoin a bit of a cola-ish bite. Frankly, it's one of the best skin scents I've tried in a long time, and I like it even more than the somewhat similar (and similarly priced) Bois d'Armenie.

From the Annick Goutal website: A precious and lustful fragrance. Homage to myrrh, blending a surging and impertinent essence with a smoother incandescent resinoid. This combination is guided by an intoxicating scent which casts a voluptuous veil over skin. A heady emanation composed of benzoin, vanilla tonka pods, almost balmy and devilishly addictive; essence of gaiac wood, soft and voluptuous; and enveloping and honeyed pure beeswax extract.
