In their home fragrance line, L'Occitane en Provence offers an Amber Solid cube that is lush with amber, vanilla, myrrh, and other notes. So appealing is this scent to me that I took to wearing it--grating it with a Microplane and dabbing it on with a cosmetic brush. An expert in wearable fragrance warned me that my obsession with this amber might result in some skin breakout and took it upon herself to find me a substitute that was safe and cloned the scent that I liked so much.
She found it!
`Amber Butter' by Auric Blends produces almost the same aromatic blend albeit in a wearable format that comes in an intriguing little carved pot that looks great on your vanity. Sliding your finger across the top of the butter and anointing your throat, earlobes or wrists will swathe you in a sweet amber cloud that will stay with you until you bathe.
Please note that as I am unaware of the actual ingredients that formulate the composition of Amber Butter, I can only say that the aroma is similar to that of L'Occitane's Amber Solid.
There are two negatives. Given he softer consistency of this solid perfume when compared to other solid scents, it seems as if Amber Butter will not last very long given the small amount in the pot and the quantity that your finger will pick up if you are not careful. Additionally, be aware that as the cap doesn't secure tightly, I would not recommend this solid for travel in one's purse.
Bottom line? Auric Blends "Amber Butter" is a lovely amber scented solid that will please lovers of amber and especially those who enjoy L'Occitane's Amber Solid Home Fragrance cubes. Highly Recommended. Please note the small yet lovely packaging. Diana Faillace Von Behren "reneofc"
