…whose nights are bright and brief, while their day is long and dark!..
From “ Ambra” by Lorenzo the Magnificent, on the myth of Ombrone, who would stubbornly
continue to love the wood nymph Ambra for ever.
AMBRA NOBILE evokes “nights for happy lovers are bright and brief” inebriated
by the aphrodisiac perfume of amber, combined with the warm, citrusy,
resin notes of labdanum, the liquorice notes of Helichrysum, whose leaves
shine in the sun like gold (“golden leaf”), the “manly” tobacco hints of the Tonka bean,
and a slight, delicate sandalwood finish as the calm after the olfactory storm.
