After the response to my last perfume post, I have decided it must be worth doing a second. This time I choose a British perfume made in England.

Amber is made by Laboratory Perfumes and is an Eau de Toilette or a scented candle. I like the science lab packaging for the bottle and the bottle itself is labeled like a beaker on the back. The sculpture in the background is an original “piece” called “Hobart” as made by yours truly. Dora my cleaner saw my sculpture and picked it up and looked at it, then looked at me and said “I hope you didn’t pay money for that.”

Officially, the scent is described as balmy layers of wood, earth and ambergris, with green spicy top notes. More simply I would describe it as sophisticated pineapples. Good for men and women.

The other scent made by Laboratory perfumes is Gorse – “Subtle notes of cardamon transport us to the coast and countryside. Gorse is fresh and zesty with citrus top notes.” Equally delicious. I was standing in Liberty and had a hard time choosing between the two.

If you like the Comme des Garçons scents like the Sherbert series, Leaves series or Incense series it might be worth giving this a try for a change and buy some “local product”.
