Amber lovers will find an interesting twist in Blue Amber. It opens with the same golden tones of the best ambers around, with coriander and geranium providing just the right amount of zest to counterbalance. But when the base revs up, we enter an entirely new story that explains the "blue" in the scent's name. In the end, Blue Amber turns to a powdery, resinous cloud of intimate warmth, like the memory of an old love. Notes include bergamot, geranium, patchouli, vetiver, coriander, amber, and vanilla.
