Review: Velvet Amber by Fragrance Du Bois

A truly unique and unusual creation, 𝐕𝐞𝐥𝐯𝐞𝐭 𝐀𝐦𝐛𝐞𝐫 is a departure from previous releases in the 𝐅𝐫𝐚𝐠𝐫𝐚𝐧𝐜𝐞 𝐃𝐮 𝐁𝐨𝐢𝐬 catalog, signed by perfumer Chris Maurice, the master at formulating iconic orientals, this is a slightly bold venture from the Parisian niche house known for their ultra refined and crowd pleasing offerings with high quality ingredients including pure organic Oud. The kaleidoscopic perfume truly evokes images of exotic places yet to be explored by humankind, The brief opening set of notes is going to give you a subtle hint of freshness, before transitioning into the puzzling and intriguing heart built around cypriol, forming a dominant woody core which is further reinforced by powerful doses of leather,𝐕𝐞𝐥𝐯𝐞𝐭 𝐀𝐦𝐛𝐞𝐫 is quite complex, as it comes across as both aromatic due to the use of cardamom and very woody , but also a bit boozy and animalic.
Now if you wonder where the exquisitely composed perfume gets its name from, the answer raises from the base, where a majestic amber accord originates, outlining the olfactive ride with the warmth and charisma of a Phoenix Firebird.
