My favorite oil
Written by Paul on May 29th 2018

I have been wearing this oil as a cologne for 30 years. The company I bought from shut down years ago. It was hard finding true Amber oil since. Glad I found Silky Scents!

The Best!

Amber can smell very different from different sources, and I have tried many. After using each and taking my time to compare them, I have decided that this Amber from SilkyScents is my favorite. It is more complex than most, with a softer sweeter lingering scent, and works just as well as a fixative for blends as do some of the deeper, heavier versions of amber oil. If I put on a tiny touch of it after a shower, people come closer and comment how wonderful it smells. Makes a great cover for medicinal oils with unpleasant smells!

This is one of the best Amber essential oils that I have found anywhere! Like any essential oil, the scent of amber can vary. This one has a hint of a brighter pine scent at first, which mellows to a very sweet tone over the deep musky amber scent. Absolutely wonderful. I will be buying a lot of this one!
