Balmain’s Ambre Gris
I purchased a sample vial of Balmain’s Ambre Gris (no sperm whales were harmed in the production of this scent) from LuckyScent.com and, upon first scent, was completely turned off by the top note. But as it slowly warmed to my skin, I felt the overwhelming urge to buy myself an engagement ring and move to Fiji forever. It’s sweet, almost gourmand, definitely not for everyone, sexy and musky, sort of hypnotic and absolutely unforgettable. You can buy a sample vial on LuckyScent.com for $3, or the Perfumed Court. However, when you’re ready to buy a full bottle, try Amazon or parfum1.com for a better deal.
