Description

Hermessence Ambre Narguile is in the Oriental Spicy fragrance group with accords or sweet, warm spicy, cinnamon, honey, balsamic.  This is a warm, enveloping intoxicating fragrance but not completely overpowering.  Jean-Claude Ellena's memory of places where tobacco blended with fruit, honey and spices was smoked in nargiles or water pipes was inspirational in creating.  This fragrance is one you should try in warm weather as well as cold.  It is a delightful different warmth in both warm and cold.  A gorgeous Oriental blend of amber, benzoin, labdanum, musk, vanilla, caramel, honey, sugared tonka bean, grilled sesame seeds, cinnamon, rum, coumarine and white orchids. Ambre Narguile is an eau de toilette, edt, and was created by Jean Claude Ellena.

Reviews of Hermessence Ambre Narguile 

from basenotes - "Absolutely wonderful apple pie with cinnamon and rum. Beautiful creation and extremely gourmand to the point that you can taste it. Strong projection and great longevity as well. There isn't much more to say on it."

and also from basenotes - "Ambre Narguile is one of those scents that circumvents the thinking part of your brain and goes straight for the dopamine receptors in your central nervous system responsible for the registering of pleasure."

from Kafkaesque - "I may have narrowed the search for my perfect amber. I need to say that at the onset because it’s quite an unexpected, unlikely thing. Certainly, I didn’t expect to like — let alone adore — a scent described as “cinnamon apple pie” by most commentators. I am not a fan of foody or gourmand perfumes. And I am most definitely not a fan of paying high prices to smell like cloying dessert. But there is something intoxicating, sensuous, comforting and unexpected about Hermès‘ Ambre Narguilé."

    Great autumn scent.

    I first tried Ambre Narguile many months ago, and it took some getting used to. The second time I tried it, I loved it. There is something of a spicy apple-pie accord to it. My BF loves this. Decent sillage and average longevity. Certainly full-bottle worthy, and perfect for the autumn.

    Comet-Sprinkled Pie Plate

    I adore Hermes, and Ellena is my favorite nose. I love amber, vanilla, spices, benzoin and musk. But I really can't stand this fragrance.

    It smells like the abrasive cleanser Comet has been sprinkled on a dirty pie dish crusted with the day-old remains of a school cafeteria apple pie.

    Hermes outdoes itself

    I am not usually a Hermes fan, but this one, for me, beats all the others. It's a daring amber-y gourmand, apple pie with cinnamon and honey, but the richness is cut by the presence of less cloying elements,like tobacco-y benzoin. The first few minutes are quite intense and even over the top, but then everything settles down and the fragrance becomes perfect without having changed much in notes. What you see at the beginning, in other words, is what you get. And the drydown is beautiful. It lasts long enough certainly, but in a runoff with Malle's Musc Ravageur, a longevity monster, it was left in the dust. This is not at all a reason to reject it, however, for it's hardly a wimp.

    Delicious.

    I sampled a 1/2 ml dauber. It appeared almost clear, the palest yellow in the vial. A slight warm amber aroma was noticeable before application. Upon application I was surprised to smell a sweetened spice, which turned into warm apple pie on my wrists! The sweetness gave way to a musky amber on my skin. Definitely enjoyed wearing it, and it lured in a flock of potential suitors as I danced that evening. It had decent longevity and sillage for me, though I did reapply once as I danced into the early morning hours. A perfect fragrance for the cooler weather upon us. Strongly considering a FB.
