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...

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. ...

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...

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 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...

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,...

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...

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...

I feel like volume is just too high on this. Starts our very much as others have described it - boozy apple pie. A very gourmand sweet smell with notes of apple, vanilla, raisin and bourbon....

I was so scared to try this, as amber can go wonky on me. I finally got a sample of it and was floored by how incredibly delicious it was. Yes, it's a gourmand that manages to evoke the *feeling*...

I ordered a sample from ebay because of some reviews on youtube, and I'm glad I ordered the small sample ($10) because I don't love it. I kept reading that it smelled like raisins, pastries,...

I love, love, love this perfume. But the price is out of the question for this stay-at-home-mom's single income family budget. But how wonderful of Hermes to send a sample upon request. Yes,...

Overall this fragrance is best summed up as a gourmand that smells like a cinnamon and fruit pastry. Despite that description it's far more complex and definitely one of my favorites. The amber is...

Kind of difficult to put a finger on exactly what I expect from something associated with the great fashion house Hermes. Whatever it is, it's not this. My first thoughts after applying were: Not...

I have not bought ambre narguile yet because I do not want to buy a bottle of 100 ml. The other alternative is to buy small bottles of 15 ml. Too bad they do not sell smaller bottles of 30 ml or 50...

This review is based on a sample vial, but I went ahead and said I would repurchase this product because I would love to eventually own a full bottle. When I'm not broke. (And it doesn't help that...
