Reviews of Ambra Calabria by Nishane

There are 2 reviews of Ambra Calabria by Nishane.


The opening is expressing mainly green notes; these green notes have quite a herbal undertone. There are light touches of bergamot present at times that tilt the top notes towards a certain freshness, although a restrained freshness - this is not a refreshing summer Cologne.

Galbanum in a substantial addition in the drydown, adding a touch of spiciness that is applied very light-handedly, as is the gentle amber impression that is the other notable addition in the heart notes. This all is linked with an overarching fine and discreet layer of jasmine.

All this continues into the base, which is not very distinctly separated from the heart except for the development of a rather unexciting vanilla. This scent is never really very sweet or cloying.

I get soft sillage, reasonable projection and four hours of longevity on my skin.

Pleasant to some extent in spring, this is a light and very gentle amber creation, which is too generic to really warrant a positive score. 2.5/5.

Nishane Ambra Calabria is a light, fresh, fruity, green amber that isn't that deep or interesting to my nose. Certainly a departure from a resinous, gourmand-like amber, one might expect something akin to Tom Ford Rive D'Ambre but Ambra Calabria is surely a bit heavier-handed with some of the spicy and herbal elements and is not so purely fresh and warm-weather-leaning as Rive D'Ambre, for one.

Rather, Ambra Calabria starts out fresh and green with bergamot and "green notes" and then hits a more interesting spicy/floral stop with galbanum and coriander, before landing on a base of musk, vanilla, and ambergris. It certainly sounds like it could be interesting, but it comes off rather stale on my skin.

Not a bad performer but nothing special. Not a fragrance I'll be pursuing further but I'm sure it works well for some.
