As a unisex fragrance, it avoids opening with sweet or sugary notes. Instead, it opens with nutmeg and ginger, then mellows to heart notes of rose and cinnamon. The rose scent is always present, but in a supporting role rather than as the star. The focus here is on rich, spicy notes reminiscent of a Moroccan bazaar. The base notes are warm amber, creamy vanilla and musk. The amber is the star of the show. If you enjoy gourmand fragrances with an oriental base, you’ll appreciate Secret Amber for both its scent and its price tag.
