Ambra Calabria is an unusually fresh, leafy-green amber that departs from the standard model of vanilla and resin so thick you could stand a spoon up in ‘em. The sour bite of Calabrian bergamot and the smoky greenness of the galbanum cut a swath through the amber, blowing it up with salt and air. This is what makes Ambra Calabria such a fantastic wear in hot summer weather.
But Ambra Calabria really gives you the best of both worlds. It has all the spiky freshness of a traditional eau de cologne but also all the robustness of a full-blown oriental. So while the opening act is full of tart green and lemony notes that will snap your head to attention, the second act is built for comfort, not speed, with creamy jasmine blossoms tucked behind the ear of a musky, salted caramel base that seems to go on forever. Sweet and inviting on the bottom, tart and energizing on top, Ambra Calabria is the olfactory equivalent of Key Lime pie with a sprinkle of anise and salt on top. Summer in a bottle, dare we say.
