One could call Ambra Calabria an oxymoronic fragrance. It's a romantic mixture of bergamot and green notes atop a bed of sweet amber and vanilla. This is an intriguing and inviting fragrance that shouldn't be reserved only for special occasions.
NOTES: Bergamot, galbanum, green leaves, jasmine, coriander seeds, sweet amber, musk, vanilla

Like most of the scents in the Nishane line, you're going to get a scent bubble that will last for a long time. Ambra Calabria is not an overly bright green, nor is it a sharp, bitter green. I think the jasmine and vanilla help the galbanum to achieve this. The green leaves mixed with the galbanum help the green aspect to achieve a fresh green with a little resinous, sugared, floral bloom. It's not syrupy, it's not a floral garden, and it's not a citrus basket. Ambra does have all these parts, but they are blended very well together. The coriander is very subtle in this; I don't detect any spice at all. I believe there is an Italian city named Calabria...I get a solid eight to 10 hours.

Starts nicely with amber that is not sweet and a note resembling lemon tree leaves, there is lovely galbanum, a bit of vanilla and jasmine, but over time the lemon tree leaves note starts loosing lemony feel and you are left with something resembling rotten leaves.

Starts off as a peppery, bitter greenery and lemony bergamot. Very fresh and green. The drydown is all about the powdery, warm amber, clean musk and hint of creamy vanilla. Not my favorite amber, and a little too powdery for my tastes, but pleasant enough.
