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.

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."
