François Demachy: 

The idea was to create a sensual Rose by combining it with Ambergris, two of the most emblematic ingredients used by perfumers. This accord was particularly important to me; I worked on it for many years before successfully creating Ambre Nuit.

The fragrance was originally part of the company's Dior Homme Cologne line, which was conceived by then creative director, Hedi Slimane.

An oriental, sweet to the bone amber fully covered with rose. Actually on my skin it's a rose with an amber background with a pinch of pink pepper and maybe honey as well. The rose is jammy and beautiful. The whole fragrance is definitely leaning towards feminine bu that is okay for me.

Perfect match for those who like oriental rose scents (without oud) with an addition of amber for a change.

The sillage and longevity are impressive so it is easy to overspray that one.


I like Ambre Nuit but it was not at the high level I expected. Mixture of bergamot, rose & amber give this fragrance a nice sophisticated feel. There's a little bit of funk going on in the background. Pleased to own a healthy sized decant but wouldn't pull the trigger on a full bottle. Longevity and projection are below average.


When dreams come true, Ambre Nuit should be worn.

This is a delightful oriental scent.
The amber is dry and crisp, caused by delicious bergamot, grapefruit and a fine rose. The pepper is rather present too.
I could wish for more sillage. On the other hand, I adore the private world this wonderful concoction creates.
Once again I am smitten with a beautiful contradiction: warmth and zest.

In my top ten.


Ambre Nuit is a bit of a meh experience for me. It's a rose and amber combo with a little sharp citrus sitting at the top. Not feminine like I was expecting it to be. The rose doesn't stand out sharply. I also get a bit of plastic or rubberyness that I normally associate with oud, however it's not a listed note here.

It's also super soft. I've heard that many of the maison Dior line have been watered down over the years, and my experience with AN falls in line with that expectation. I'll be sure to give it another few wearings and see if I can get a bit more oomph out of it. But for now, the performance doesn't match the price. I also have Feve Delicieuse, Spice Blend, and Oud Ispahan to try, to see if they've fared a bit better.


The positive side is that it has a dryer take on amber. It would therefore project as masculine. But the negative one is that it lacks the beautiful powdery and what I call fresh mushroom smell of amber. Very nice though. Even for a young woman.


Ive worn it half a dozen times, I was initially loving it, now, eh. It is really "pretty." To me it is a pink hued champagne. It tastes good, sure. It is refined. I'd prefer a beer. I wanted my wife to wear it, she's not a fan, though she gave no reason. So I'll sit on my 10ml, rechecking to see if something changes for me. A bit too feminine for me, a bit too soft. Its not an "amber" fragrance, I'd say the lead here is a kind of salty rose.
