What are the notes of an oriental/amber fragrance?

With their warm, enveloping scents, amber perfumes, also known as "orientals", are particularly popular during the cold season. Discover all the secrets behind these bewitching fragrances.

 

What is an amber fragrance?

The term "amber" or "oriental" refers to one of the major olfactory families in perfumery. It includes fragrances with warm, heady and sensual notes.

Among the most emblematic ingredients of amber fragrances are vanilla, tonka bean, patchouli, resins such as benzoin, incense and opoponax. In the last century, these exotic ingredients from faraway lands earned the perfumes that used them the name "oriental". Today, the term "amber" is more commonly used.

 

Oriental inspiration at Goutal

Since its beginnings, the House of Goutal has explored the family of amber fragrances. The richness of this olfactory territory inspires bewitching creations. Voluptuous scents inspired by warm places beyond, blending the inspiration of the Orient with the excellence of French perfumery.


The Goutal amber collection

SABLES - EAU DE PARFUM

Wild immortals line the horizon, the heat is deliciously overwhelming and the sand is scorching hot. It's the scent of an intoxicating summer, of a blazing sun under which you abandon yourself, or during a siesta by the sea. Annick Goutal composed Sables for the pleasure of endlessly recalling this moment of happiness spent in Corsica with her husband.

 

AMBRE FÉTICHE - EAU DE PARFUM

Some perfumes are like talismans, with the magical power to take us back to where we feel most at home. Here, in the warmth of the Orient, amid the stalls of a spice market, the bewitching essences of vanilla and benzoin, mixed with leather and patchouli, transport us and remind us of traditional perfuming rituals.

MUSC NOMADE - EAU DE PARFUM

In the Orient of 1,001 Nights, princesses perfumed their bodies and hair with a divine mixture of musk and refined essences. Like a trip through time, Musc Nomade invites us to join the caravans that carried the precious ingredients used in this perfumed ritual.

ENCENS FLAMBOYANT - EAU DE PARFUM

The air is filled with an enchanting, heady aroma: one can sense its presence without knowing its source. There appear to be thin wisps of smoke rising from an incense burner… Like an ancient perfuming ritual glimpsed from behind a veil, Encens Flamboyant fascinates and intrigues, without ever allowing itself to be fully captured.

AMBRE SAUVAGE - ABSOLU

The magic of moments suspended in time… In the streets of Tangier at sunset, leading to an improvised celebration. Ambre Sauvage captures this precious immortalises this moment of spontaneous joy shared with those we love. Bursting lavender and velvety iris are warmed by an amber accord with a richness like no other. An olfactory homage to the Orient, an endless source of inspiration for our Maison.

The Ambre Sauvage routine

Beyond its ingredients, the Orient inspires Goutal through its perfuming traditions and its highly sensual gestures. To sublimate the trail of the House's first absolute, Ambre Sauvage, discover this three-step ritual. It is inspired by the layering tradition, which consists of layering several fragranced products to create an intense, personalised olfactory signature.

Step 1: Apply the Crème Universelle, a creamy, delicately musky caress. Its formula deeply nourishes the skin and prepares it for fragrancing.

Step 2: Spray Musc Nomade: this musky amber eau de parfum creates an ideal synergy with Ambre Sauvage, revealing its most delicate facets.

Step 3: Spray Ambre Sauvage, concentrating on pulse points on the body: wrists, elbows, behind the ear... the warmth will help diffuse your fragrance over the hours.


Like Ambre Sauvage, amber fragrances invite powerful, unforgettable emotions onto the skin... If this warm, enveloping universe resonates with this moment in your life, we invite you to explore the creations of this olfactory family, which has been dear to Goutal since its origins.

A month, a fragrance, an emotion...

Sometimes a simple bit of reading can transform you, can change everything. For Annick Goutal, it was Memoirs of Hadrian by Marguerite Yourcenar, one summer, in Italy. More than just a memory, this fragrance contains an entire countryside illuminated by the Tuscan sun, a cocktail of bright citrus, a perfume of delightful freshness, discretely elegant and incredibly modern. The first great success of the House, the timeless Eau d’Hadrien.
