As the orchid vines sew their way upward, sun-drenched pods reveal their crystalline treasure. A rich, creamy aroma envelops the senses. Dark amber depths of bourbon vanilla, cedarwood, tonka bean and vetiver root. Exotic spice of black peppercorn, ginger, fresh green cardamom and aged spirits. A mingling of mischief. A dreamy sweetness cloaked in mystery. Forever familiar, forever enchanting, Vanilla Ambrette cologne comes in a custom, heavyweight glass bottle that looks as good as the fragrance inside.

Pepper Anyone

One thing about this company, you can't buy one product then buy it another form and expect it to smell alike is what I've learned. I like the body wash and the room spray, but this cologne smells like black pepper on me. The only reason I'm not returning is I bought with a free shipping promotion. It's rather disgusting though. Who wants to smell like pepper. This one ingredient overpowers all the others. I don't recommend it.

No, this is not the fluffy sweet vanilla. It has a beautiful deep bite to it with the pepper.
Oh my goodness...I love to smell the lingering scent of this on my clothing!!

This is one you shouldn't shelve.

I had high hopes for this scent based on the description, and I was not disappointed! Often the spicier, woodsy scents I am attracted to are either too heavy-handed for regular wear or too masculine, but the balance between vanilla, spice, and cedarwood in this fragrance is perfect, in my opinion. This is not a sugar cookie vanilla, but instead a very inviting mix of warm spices and mellow wood. Love.

Sadly, this scent just isn't for me.

I love (and own) many, many Thymes fragrances (see below), so it surprised me when I didn't fall in love with this scent. Yes, it's a "grown-up" version of vanilla, as another reviewer noted, but there's something about it that I just can't take (I'm thinking it's the orchid, since all of the other notes are in scents I like). When it dries down, it has a powdery / woodsy smell that's more tolerable, but it's still not something I could spray all over. Don't get me wrong: this isn't an awful scent, but it's just not for me. It smells like something an older woman could pull off, so I might gift it to my mom or aunt for Christmas. It's OK, though. I still love Thymes, and I'm happy that other ladies are enjoying this perfume. : )

If it helps, these are my favorite Thymes scents: Aqua Coralline, Naia, Eucalyptus, Tupelo Lemongrass, Mandarin Coriander, Agave Nectar, Olive Leaf, Clary Sage Tea, Azur, Rosewood Citron, Kimono Rose, Lotus Santal, Fraiser Fur, and Red Cherie.
