Sonoma Scent Studio: Amber Incense

Amber Incense is Laurie's newest all natural perfume creation. Laurie crafts her fragrances in two categories: mixed media (which uses some natural and some synthetic materials) and all natural. I love that Laurie chronicles her perfume making process on her blog. You know when beautiful aromas are in the making, from seed to fruit and the bumps that happen along the way. Reading her posts regarding the creation of this particular perfume created a well of excitement. I just could not wait to experience it. 

The deep golden copper juice tells the story from the start. Frankincense bold and kingly herald the opening, with a honey sweetness sweeping in behind. And ultimately that is what this scent reminds me of, honey and incense. Viscous, holding a drop of sunlight in its belly. As it dries down, a soft cedar note materializes, all the while holding onto the golden frankincense honey. The projection is soft and the longevity is nice, quite a few hours. I will be buying this again. It is too beautiful to pass up.
