Details and Care
Al Haramain Amber Oud White Edition is a bit mysterious. The bottle features brushed gold, which has a wood look to it. It is very square, with a square lid. It seems almost utilitarian and unwavering, leading you to believe this may be a heavy fragrance, but that is not what you get.
This cologne has a fresh citrusy scent with elements of flowers and spice. It pulls on the powder from the amber and smokiness from the oud notes to provide something very well-rounded. It doesn't really fall into one category solidly, although it does tend to settle into a floral fragrance category.
Chypre floral, citrus
Top Notes: bergamot, orange
Middle Notes: cyclamen, jasmine, rose, freesia
Base Notes: vetiver, patchouli, vanilla, musk
