Dior Ambre Nuit is part of the Orientals Collection. These evocative and intense fragrances evoke scenes from an Oriental dream. Smoky trails, leathery notes and sparkling oud reveal a world of deep emotions to experience. Fragrances in this collection include Feve Delicieuse, Purple Oud, Oud Ispahan, Ambre Nuit and Leather Oud.
It was created by Francois Demachy who says this about the fragrance: "Ambre Nuit orchestrates an encounter between two extremes. It is, in some way, the fragrant embodiment of Beauty and the Beast. This perfume combines the deep, animal facet of amber with the delicate velvet of Turkish rose. This potent duo is like a nocturnal wave of amber that sees strength and delicacy converse, where opposites attract."
Ambre Nuit is a fragrance inspired by and centering on amber. It features top notes of grapefruit and bergamot; middle notes of Turkish rose and pink pepper and base notes of warm amber notes. Another truly well done scent by Dior!! It is an eau de parfum, edp.
Dior’s luxury fragrance line La Collection Privée has been reimagined for 2018, offering a new way for you to be dressed in Dior. Rebranded as Maison Christian Dior, it goes beyond a collection of fragrances to become a somewhat ritualistic concept; that of perfuming and embellishing spaces and moments in your life. “When I create perfumes I flout technical constraints, schedules, fashions and trends,” Demachy explains of his artistic process. The fragrances in this collection are formed in families of Orientals, Florals, Sensuals, Light Florals and Fruity Florals, non-specific to gender but without being labelled ‘unisex’.
Reviews of Dior Ambre Nuit
From Basenotes - "This is gorgeous – beautiful warm amber and a lovely smoky rose dusted with powder. One of my colleagues came in to my office today and wanted to know what that lovely smell was – she thought I was burning some sort of fancy incense."
From Kafkaesque - "There is something extremely sensuous about the combination of notes in Ambre Nuit that consistently make me think of an Argentinian tango between heated dancers in some smoky, dark room — except they are dressed in the most refined, elegant, couture outfits. The ambergris’ special, unique features evoke the warmth of heated, slightly musky skin that has been rendered just the faintest bit salty from sweat. The incense conjures up the smoky, dark feel of those dance rooms, while the gaiac and cedar replicate the incredibly smooth, wooden floors that the dancers glide across."
From Candy Perfume Boy - "I am in love with Ambre Nuit, it feels like Le Labo’s Rose 31 with all of the roughness smoothed out, an amber that’s not really an amber but more of an oriental rose with little hints of the golden stuff. It is utterly fabulous and I would more than happily add it to my collection along with the two other Dior La Collecton lemmings that I’m lusting after (EauNoire and Leather Oud)... "
