While I do enjoy this one year round, I find it is especially delightful in the Autumn. Boozy rum, tonka, caramel...in fact, the honey, rum, and cinnamon play together to give this a warm honey-spiced toddy feel and I'm completely ok with that. This is a cozy sweater on a blustery day, teetering on the edge of gourmand but still staying firmly in the unisex oriental category. The labdanum …Read more

I love many of Jean Claude Ellena's fragrances because I appreciate their light and bright qualities, I currently have L'Eau d'Hiver, Jour d'Hermes and Vanille Galante in my rotation of perfumes. Luckily, I received Ambre Narguilé as a gift after having smelled it only once in the Hermes boutique. The Hermessence line is extremely expensive with exquisite packaging. Ambre …Read more

Ambre Narguile starts mighty boozy, very much like a cinnamon liquor which I find a bit masculine. Then the honey and benzoin come to join the baking fest but I don't get the infamous apple pie scent everyone mentions here. The drydown is ambery/leathery and kept in check because of the tobacco which provides a sophisticated twist. It's still very much a gourmand scent though, so if you …Read more

I like it well enough to wear, but it's not an HG for me. I've worn it a couple times and both times the overwhelming impression was honey. Yesterday I actually pulled down a big jar of honey that I have in the kitchen and sniffed that to see how accurate my impression was, and sure enough, it's honey, with some fresh tobacco like an unsmoked cigarette, which I actually have always …Read more

I love the opening of Ambre Narguile!! Remnds me of an apple tart from McDonald's (sorry). As it dries down it starts to remind me a little of China Town and Andy Warhol Lexington Ave. I wouldn't say they're dupes, just that they seem to share some of the same notes to my nose. Not bad, not great! Take it or leave it. The price on this is a little high for what this is!

In a sea of dreck and the downright mediocre, Ambre Narguile stands out as one of the few modern masterpieces of perfumery. How can a scent be elegant, striking and perhaps a little intimidating, yet as cosy and as comfortable as an old pair of slippers at the same time? Ambre Narguile manages it. Although reports of its strength, longevity and complex array of what to some are quite challenging …Read more

I finally understand why this fragrance receives so many great reviews. I first heard about this scent when a YouTube "guru" mentioned it as her favorite scent. Since I have no access to a Hermes store anywhere near where I live, I called Hermes customer service and they kindly sent me two Ambre Narguile samples. Once on my skin I get a sharp fruity scent with tobacco. It first applies …Read more

A little backstory here: my relationship with perfumes started very early and has changed a lot during the decades. When I started to get “serious” about them, gourmands were already a trend, so I ended up trying most of them, buying a lot and getting bored a few years later. The truth, as awful as it may be, is: I don’t like gourmand scents that much now… I don’t even like to eat sugar, smelling …Read more
