Ambre Gris


Pin It Fancy

Could there be anything rarer than Ambre Gris? Endowed with an exceptionally persistent, intense, sensual perfume, Ambergris has inevitably been associated with the erotic sphere.

In many countries throughout the East it was eaten as an aphrodisiac. The master perfumers of Venice used it widely in the 1700s, and Giacomo Casanova relied on it for his many exploits. The finest Ambergris is known as “flottée”, since it dries out naturally after floating at length on the sea; once mature, it develops a fragrance too complex even for the rich vocabulary of essences.

Perris Monte Carlo has highlighted the aphrodisiac properties of natural Ambergris, pairing it with Rose Absolute, Vanilla Absolute and Musk. Its attraction is exuded in a long, seductive trail.

Notes: Top note is Artemisia; middle notes are Rose and Geranium; base notes are Amber, Labdanum, Musk, Coumarin, Vanilla, Sandalwood and Cedar.
