L'Occitane en Provence welcomed another beautiful addition to their La Collection de Grasse in 2013.  Ambre & Santal Eau de Toilette is a surprisingly soft woody oriental fragrance with a haunting warmth and sophistication from perfumer, Karine Dubreuil, that will brighten any cold day.  

This is a fresh take on spice that you will want to wear forever from the gentle way this lovely amber fragrance develops.  

With opening notes of bergamot and rosemary, you can't help but become fascinated from the beginning.  

The fig leaves and rose notes in the heart give it a delicious, almost gourmand quality lending some sweetness to that warmth that is luscious as well as intriguing.  

As it dries down with sandalwood, cedar, labdanum, and vanilla, the woody base turns creamier and so sensual as it melds with your body chemistry, making it even more enticing as it effortlessly seduces with elegance.

I loved the complex layering that went into this fragrance.  The traditional spicy notes are tempered against the other notes in such a way the fragrance takes on a unique sheerness that is exceptionally alluring.

If you tend to gravitate toward to a spicy fragrance and want something totally unforgettable, then you owe it to yourself to stop at  L'Occitane en Provence and sample Ambre & Santal.  The 2.5 oz. eau de toilette retails for $75.
