Ferrari Amber Essence by Belinda Morris
If you’re a Ferrari man (in reality, with one of the beasts in your garage, or merely aspirationally-speaking) and you feel inspired to wear a Ferrari fragrance (and why wouldn’t you?) you’ll be excited to learn that the brand has upped its game significantly. Recently launched, in Harrods, is Amber Essence, an exclusive Special Edition fragrance for men.
The fact that it has been produced in limited quantities (1,800 units worldwide) makes Amber Essence special of course, but the icing on the gateau luxe is its presentation. The bottle is cradled in a hand-crafted, warm tan leather sleeve inspired by the interior of a Ferrari automobile. The cognac hue of the fragrance complements the leather, as well as the detailing of the cap – all very sleekly elegant, refined and masculine.
But what of the fragrance itself? Being a sucker for warm, sensuous scents I love it. From the first spritzand even given the freshness of bergamot – the sexiness is there thanks to coriander and frankincense. Things get richer still with the ‘blond wood’ ingredient cashmeran, with cedar and spicy nutmeg for more enveloping warmth. And the dry down features amber with musk and patchouli, so that you’re in no doubt that this is bottled sensuality!
