AMBREINE

| The Authentic Amber |

You open the cork on a fine aged port, its bold sensuality seduces your nose with round, sophisticated curves, dark dried fruit, and a sparkle of crisp bergamot. You kick off your shoes and let your body respond. As the potion opens, it reveals layers of intoxicating orange blossoms and oaked vanilla, notes of wine and bourbon mingle. 
Time pauses as images of auburn leaves float from maple tree branches, the fall softened by ancient sandalwood. 
The golden hour sun rays stream through, illuminating the amber resin jewels.

The Personal, the Process, The Gathered

Before the advent of synthetic fragrances, there was only nature. Plants, animals, moss, shells, oils, nectar, waxes, and booze. The organic state of complex, mysterious, and magical miracles of earth. And of these organic materials, perfumes of all kinds were crafted.

In the lineage of perfumes that generated wider, more glamorous use and contributed to the future of what we now know as perfume classifications (or families), there is the Oriental perfume family. I mentioned this briefly in the post for my Mellis perfume. Oriental fragrances are built around a strong, voluptuous "amber" base, and then layered upon with lavish spices, florals, and citruses. I put quotes around "amber" because it is imaginary. It is an accord built from more than one ingredient to conjure a deep, creamy, resinous, sweet, sultry, often powdery aroma that we have come to find familiar in items like Nag Champa incense, popular perfumes like Shalimar and Obsession, and "amber resin" often sold in esoteric shops which is a semi-soft resinous square that is highly fragrant and composed of several ingredients like resins, woods, and plant essences ( I don't know if there are synthetic ingredients in it). It is meant to be used in an aroma-necklace or rubbed onto the skin for perfume. There are oil based perfumes simply labeled as amber that are also common in indie shops, head shops, and health food stores.

Unfortunately, many of the aforementioned amber products are questionable in terms of ingredients, and they are somewhat flat (in my opinion) compared to the spectrum possible with amber accord plant ingredients. It also is important to mention that with the evolution of plant essence extractions, we now have access to an incredible real amber resin - fossilized amber - and it is one of my favorite aromatics. You will have found it in  Nicotiana Rose, The Forager, and several other former perfumes of mine. It is also in Ambreine. It smells of the finest leather with sweet undertones of balsamic incense. It is deep and divine and adds a significant depth and tenacity to perfume.

Ambreine also can refer to Ambergris - which has a rich and fascinating history and present in perfumery, however it is not used in my Ambreine perfume. You can read more about this material online and in books by Mandy Aftel. For this perfume I have chosen to work exclusively with plant materials.

When I created several different perfume mods in Charna's Oriental perfumery class, I fell madly in love (again) with the amber notes, and in particular the two main traditional accord structures: Mellis and Ambreine - two different styles of building an amber accord, and I set out to create my own signature versions of each, to bring to you. Mellis (aka honey water) quickly became my most-worn perfume, and Ambreine is showing no less admiration.

The vanilla tincture in Ambreine is handcrafted using bourbon and Tahitian vanilla beans, soaked for many weeks and made extra strong. The orris root used here I also tincture by hand, using aged orris roots which have an incredible aroma of powder and sweet earth and has long been used in perfumery. Orris root gives tenacity to a perfume, helping it wear for a longer time.

A NOTE FROM THE PERFUMER

** Due to the fact that I - Gather perfume - use exclusively 100% natural materials, batch variance is to be expected. This is the same in any luxury, handcrafted art medium ( such as dance and opera) and agriculturally dependent arts such as viticulture, honey, or microbrewery. Gather perfumes are often limited editions for this reason, as well as the fact that some materials can only be obtained for small windows of time or no longer available at all. If you prefer uniformity in your fragrances, you may want to consider a more commercially available or mixed media brand. 

With Love,
Ananda

Pure Meditation without the dope

Sabali my friends. This is meditation and pure Patience in a bottle. Im very happy with this. I have no problem smelling like a dark mysterious forest witch or a dedicated Buddhist monk or even a glorious rich spiritual person from Arabia, each to their own but I LOVE this perfume!! Totally Unisex in my opinion. Not that it matters much.

The winner

I own a number of natural perfumes and I love them all. My husband does as well except he is not a fan of an amber fragrance I purchased from another all natural brand that I will not mention. I happen to like it very much but I promised him not to buy it again after the bottle was empty. I really love amber based fragrances and wanted an all natural one. So I blind bought Amberine. My husband loves it and says it is hands down the winner. I love it as well. It is deep, rich, woody and intense.

A great fall/winter scent!

This fragrance is perfectly blended and very potent.
If you enjoy the smell of REAL amber, you really appreciate this one as much as I do. I burn amber resin in my home and I know from experience that I little pinch goes a long way just like this perfume. It has great longevity to say the least. Also, the quality of the amber is top notch. Lastly, this is definitely a cool weather scent.

Exquisite

Thank you Ananda !!! Your perfume is amazing. I’m in love with Ambreine. It’s so unique and long lasting. It makes feel sexy. I’m in heaven smelling it. Although I love your other perfumes too Ambreine is my favorite. I ordered a sample set last year and new Ambreine was my new scent. I just ordered my second bottle.
I’m so grateful I seen your company highlighted in the Natural Awakenings magazine.
If anyone is trying to find a new scent order a sample set you won’t be disappointed.
Ananda keep making your lovely scents and thank you for the wonderful customer service.
