Winter Perfume, Part 1: CJScents Gingerbread Amber



Good perfumes are abundant, and so are bad ones; it is the great ones that are very few and far in between. Today, I want to talk about one of the few best perfumes that I have ever smelled -- CJ Scents' Gingerbread Amber.

Upon the initial spritz, it is a straightforward gingerbread scent. However, within five seconds, the bread-y note calms down quite a bit, and I can smell the sweet, expensive amber note. The amber and ginger notes continue to dance harmoniously together, complementing each other. After about 5-10 minutes, I start to notice a very nice almond note. It's not a simple, bitter almond scent, but more like a smooth marzipan scent. At the very end, the perfume is now a wonderful blend of ginger, amber, a hint of cinnamon, and smooth marzipan so delicious that it makes me want to chew my wrist off whenever I take a sniff. :-)

CJ Scents is a wonderful niche perfumery, and is owned by the very talented perfumer Candice J. Each perfume blend is carefully thought out, and nothing is made until you've placed your order!
