Hey Hey Posse! Fire Amber Baby! Isn’t it the best name for a fragrance EVER? One of the things I really love about wearing it is telling people the name. It always generates its own buzz of excitement.
Fire Amber Baby by Cult of Scent
Fragrantica gives these featured accords:
Amber, labdanum, incense, resins
With such a short note list you’d think Fire Amber Baby would be fairly straight forward. Nothing could be further from the truth. Somehow perfumer (and friend) Jocelyn has created a deep, multi faceted gem. It sparks and shines yet also manages to give shadow and depths.
Straight out of the bottle and onto skin I’m given a whirl of warm, sweet resins. My eyes roll back in my head and I’m in heaven. Seriously, if you’re still looking for your amber fragrance or you want something extra rich, thick, creamy and toasted then I give you notice that this is a winner.
Not an overpowering sweet sludge but a refined, hefty but curiously lightweight amber that will not rot your teeth but uses its sweetness as a cloud of mystical feeling warmth. As I wander the newly cool streets in Parramatta with my dogs of a morning I’m wrapped tightly in its calming peacefulness.
Later in my ride the cool, smoky incense adds a dark lustre to the ambers light. Its cooling shadow makes Fire Amber Baby even more interesting.
My imagination says wearing on cool Spring or Autumn afternoons. It’s as casual as you want yet will easily make the transition to power glam in an instant. Maybe an extra couple of spritzes?
I strongly urge you to try my mate Jocelyn’s range. An upcoming Aussie perfumer who is doing excellent work.
What’s your amber? Could you see this one being your jam?
