Rated 3.77 out of 5 stars
I purchased this fragrance after reading that the notes were similar to L'Acquarossa by Fendi.
This is not your typical heavily sweet, candy scented perfume. It is a well balanced mixture of sensual, warm, smokey and deep floral notes that I would recommend wearing at night, specifically during fall and winter months. It's more of a strong, confident and bold in your face statement perfume, not for every day casual perfume wearer, but more for the risk takers. I disagree that it smells like "old-lady" perfume. If you like " by the fireplace " by Replica, the original Dolce & Gabana that comes in red box, Bath and Body Works "Sweater Weather" or "COCO" by Chanel, then you'll love wearing this mysterious and sultry fragrance.
I love Amber scents but this one isn't it. Also, ULTA shipped me what seemed to be an already returned product- the box was not sealed, was damaged, and the free travel spray it arrived with was also opened and most definitely used.
If I loved the perfume, I would have overlooked the condition it arrived in, but alas. First spray, I'm immediately reminded of the cedar shavings that line a hamsters cage, not amber. It is not a sweet or gourmand scent. This perfume is more musty, I mean musky, than anything. The projection is miniscule, literally have my nose to my wrist as in writing this review because otherwise I cannot smell it. Super disappointed in what I'd hoped would be my Fall/Winter scent.

Was super excited to try this purfume because Ellis Brooklyn purfume is one of my favs but this didnt seem to impress me. For some reason I can reallyyyy smell the woodsy notes in this purfume which im not the biggest fan of. I think i would love this purfume otherwise. It is still nice and sweet, but not in a immature way.

I love this smell. It's warm, cozy, and perfect for cold months. It just does NOT last on the skin.

On me, this smells exactly like Neutrogena TGel (coal tar) shampoo. Very unpleasant.

I was not too keen on Ellis Brooklyn fragrances at first but y'all I have to tell you that this fragrance is the bomb. I literally wear these sometimes when I get out of the shower when I go out for errands when I go out on a date. it works for me everywhere I love this fragrance and I'm not just saying that like for real… I love it!

This fragrance smells so good I can not stop smelling my skin where I spray it. It is so seductive to me I just wanna lick myself lol. I'll get a wiff when the wind blows n I'm like mmmmmmm. One of the best scents I've smelt in a long time. And to me it doesn't have a perfumy smell like a lot of perfumes do. This just smells clean and so sexy!

Smells almost identical to Juliette Has A Gun "Not A Perfume" aswell as Glossier "You". I'd you like those second skin, musky scents you'll love this. Smells warm and comforting but not overwhelming

I love the initial scent of this perfume and the bottle itself is very classic and beautiful. But unfortunately it doesn't last on the skin upon the dry down. I find myself spraying it on 10 times over again, trying to get something but it just disappears. It's unfortunate because of the price and the overall scent and aesthetic of the brand. Save your money and do not blind buy this fragrance.
Happy from Florida
Very Happy. The scent is like a warm musk and I love it.

I'm so disappointed with this fragrance! I thought I would love this, especially after reading all of the wonderful reviews. Nonetheless, I'm definitely returning this. It just smells like... an old lady? It reminds me of a perfume my elderly aunt would wear or like something my mother would've worn when I was a child. The sweet/vanilla notes are far too faint as well. And to boot? It's lasting power sucks! It's been on my wrists for not even 2 hours and the more subtle or accenting notes are gone and you're just left with this "spiced alcohol" scent. On the other hand, the packaging is beautiful! That's the one compliment I can give, sadly.

Does not give the same vibes as the name and image implies. It has a very spicy almost pepper initial smell. Not at all a smooth warm amber tone. The smell is also very artificial I think that's what made it so nauseating for me. Good thing is, the smell faded pretty quickly but that also speaks to its longevity. If you're looking for a warm sensual cozy perfume I would highly recommend "fresh cream warm cashmere" from philosophy. It's a third of this price and smells SO much better.

My favorite scent right now and perfect for fall / winter / the holidays. Solid, clean amber scent at the forefront with spicy and woodsy hints that linger. Every time I wear it I get compliments! I love amber but had never smelled this before buying and took a chance based on the other reviews here. Worth the risk!

I want to smell like this perfume for the rest of my life.

Bren from VA
Bought just by description of notes! I have never had so many compliments in just one week! Love love love this scent!
J9 from MIA
It smells too much like Prada Luna Rossa
DaniDinAZ from Phoenix, AZ
I bought this on description alone and was so surprised. This is the perfect signature scent for every day. I can't stop smelling myself! If you are looking for a great fragrance that is office friendly, yet sexy enough for date night, THIS. IS. IT.

doesn't last. not worth the price.
Maddie from Fairfield,Ct
Something about this reads so incredibly sexy. It's like Donna Karan cashmere mist but the modern ultra sexy version?
Rory from Detroit, MI
Bought the travel spray and was immediately obsessed. Warm, woodsy and spicy yet clean scent. As a longtime fan of amber, this fragrance is undoubtedly one of the best I've ever tried. My new fall/winter standby!

Do you ever just walk by someone and they smell absolutely incredible but you don't know how to describe what they actually smell like? Super Amber is that kind of fragrance. It is warm, comforting, and sweet without being juvenile or overpowering. Overall I would describe this as an incredibly sexy fragrance, but in a very refined, subtle way. It has notes of cedar, amber, and vanilla, but everything blends so well together that you really can't pick out one note over the other. Combining the actual scent with the fact that it has a solid wear time makes this a total banger. Treat yourself with this one and you won't be disappointed!
