Wow. Just wow! For months now, I have been working on my batch of Amber Sambaca perfume. It's finally ready to begin bottling and labeling this week and I could NOT be more happy. This is my most favorite batch ever! I have made some improvements and upgrades to my original formula. See notes below for details.
Yesterday I applied 2 drops to the tops of my arms just above the wrist bone. I like to apply my perfumes here because they last much longer than on the inner wrist in my opinion. So, we went on a good long walk, my dog Maggie and I. Typically before I release a new batch of perfume I often wear it for a week or so each day at various times of the day and go out for a brisk walk. This helps me to evaluate the perfume is several different ways. It's lift, tenacity, the sillage and the feeling, thoughts and mood it evokes. Especially within the first hour of wear. Why an hour? Because at this point the scent has settled in to it's final drydown. This is typically the base notes and the essence or overall feeling of the perfume itself.
Here's what customers are saying ...
It seems to be making hubby a little...shall we say....amourous. Someone shoulda warned me. I don't know if I can take the pressure!((blushing))
I have to tell you, men I have never seen before have come up and told me that I smell good. Every man that gets close enough sniffs like a dog in heat! It's comical to see this 67 year old woman walk by and have the heads turn away from the younguns. Tickles the hell out of me and says SO very much about Trace's ability.
I wanted to let you know that I received my Amber Sambaca when I got home last night and I even wore it to bed. This is without a doubt, one of the finest fragrances I have ever had the pleasure to sniff. The word "sultry" came to mind the instant I opened the bottle. It's such a complex scent with so many layers, you really have done a fabulous job. I can't stop sniffing my wrists. Thank you so much!
