New Members of the Family...

Ambre Orient by Armani Prive

The Armani Prive 1001 Nights Collection is composed of Ambre Orient, Oud Royal, Rose d'Arabie and Cuir Noir.  I have smelled all three of them except the leather one.  And I must say that they are all gorgeous!  Ambre Orient is a woody, ambery, incensy with a touch of benzoin and vanilla and a little powdery.  It is very addicting!  One of the best amber based fragrances on the market.  Though it comes with a hefty price, I think it's worth every penny. =) 

Midnight Oud by Juliette Has a Gun

Opens up with a rubbery, balmy, medicinal oud-rose-saffron combo.  The rose is bright and fresh!  It is not as in-your-face as Black Aoud by Montale which a lot of people say that it is similar with.  Midnight Oud has an incensy and resinous feel to it.  As it goes down to the base notes, some amber start to come out and vanilla.  It's gorgeous and elegant!  Very unisex!  So gentlemen, do not be afraid of a lady with a gun. Give it a try!
