* Kicks off with a loud blast of berries – strawberries and raspberries. Very sweet, reminds me of bubblegum.

* Initial projection is quite strong.  People within a three foot radius will want to lick you up.

* Nez a Nez is an independent French niche line.  The name means “Nose to Nose.”

* The berries calm down and are joined by caramel, cinnamon, and vanilla – making this scent even more edible.

* We dubbed this Amber Bubblicious – and that’s a compliment.

* Berries stay present as the resinous amber gradually seeps in to be quickly joined by patchouli.

* The wonderful amber / berry / patchouli base lasts more than 12 hours on my skin.

Summary:  While at Henri Bendel in New York City, I came across the Nez A Nez line which I had never sniffed before.  While there were many delicious fruity scents, this one stood out on first sniff.  I nearly bought a full bottle from the top note, but I knew better to wait until I tested.  As much as I loved the top notes, the journey and base notes made it even better.  Ambre a Sade is definitely not for the office nor for the meek or mild-tempered.  This one screams and attracts attention – which is probably why I love it so much.

Ambre a Sade is available from Lucky Scent , Henri Bendel , and Aedes de Venusta.

    I don’t think I’ve tried any perfumes from this line yet. I read people mentioning one scent from this brand or the other but from the top of my head I cannot name a single one that everybody likes so I’m not too anxious to try it. I’ll get to it one day.

  2. Just buy it already 😉

    This was my one and only fragrance for a long time. They had it at a ltlite boutique near my work and I probably used up half of their sample bottle before I finally broke down and bought it. At the time, it felt insane to spend over a hundred bucks on perfume, but it had simply captured my heart. My scent wardrobe has increased significantly since then, but I still reach for D’Ambre often this time of year. Your review really speaks to why that is. I don’t want to live without it either! Please tell me it is not discontinued
