With a 60-year-long tradition, Ajmal presents a very special and luxurious Signature collection which includes three extraordinary fragrances based on wood: Amber Wood, Hatkora Wood and Santal Wood. The name of the collection is W Series and it provides three niche compositions as additions to the current rich offer of the house of Ajmal, which will provide top quality raw ingredients to customers in the Middle East. Amber, Hatkora lemon and sandalwood can be found in the ingredients of the three new perfumes and they originate from the countries best for their origin, ensuring additional value for fragrance connoisseurs.

"We are proudly presenting the W series to all fans of Ajmal. In accordance with time and growing needs of our customers, we initiated the Signature collection. It is a result of a blend of the best raw material used in developing new fragrances. Our Signature collection is testament of our constant research and innovations regarding ensuring the best and high quality fragrances for our clients," stated Abdulla Ajmal, CEO of Ajmal Perfumes!

Fragrance Amber Wood is a true masterpiece based on extraordinary shades of amber. It is built around juicy fruit and spices, accentuating apple, white pepper, lavender and cardamom, leading us to the warm heart composed of woody-powdery notes of orris and cedar wood. The base of the composition is formed of hot shades of amber wood and patchouli.

The fragrances will be available on the market starting from June 2014, as 100 ml Eau de Parfum in black flacons with name tags in gold color.

Amber Wood Fragrance Reviews

MetalMan

Your slumbery stupor wears thin as you find yourself nestled in warm herbal embrace of a monolithic tree. Still dull from what felt like a lifelong slumber, you begin to drink in the sensory feast that pulsates around you - the tree's branches are as thick as bridges and the heartwood is as intricate and massive as a small city. A gentle breeze carries the scent of apples and lavender from some far off branch, or maybe from the earth which must be beneath the thick cloud cover several hundred feet below. Curiosity begins to crawl into your muddled thoughts...you are compelled to climb. You drive upward into the heavens - the higher you climb, the lighter you feel almost as if the the majestic tree is aiding you. Each layer of atmosphere brings new wonder to your journey - as you climb, pieces of the trees bark and sap cling to your body. Over time you become one with the majestic wonder as your skin soaks in the agarwood and cedar essences while the sun, high above the clouds, ignites the prickly aspect of the patchouli that grows in lush waves. You ascend into the heavens coated in the thick essence of the wondrous tree - the air is so thin up here that you can hardly breathe, yet everything is weightless. A freezing wind rocks your delicate perch as you look across the sea of clouds and the continents below. You lose your sense of self in the awe of what lies beneath - no longer restrained by worldly fears or frivolity...you simply are. The cheerful chirps of nearby birds rustle you from your slumber. You blink the sun out of your sleepy vision - it was just a dream, yet you still feel light and full of life. A new day begins.

Notes: So, this was a sort of impulse buy as it isn't readily available in the US (that I can find) and I know of nowhere that allows one to test it. I know Ajmal is a decent brand and I was intrigued by the positive reviews the high end line was receiving. I saw this in an auction and went for it - I am definitely not disappointed! I need to state that this fume consistently lasts 18 to 24 hours on my skin and usually outlasts a shower! The opening is a sweet and tart apple with just a touch of herbal lavender, but this is brief as the heart of prickly wood and patchouli dominates completely after a few minutes. The wood note is quite intense and can be off putting of you can't handle agarwood and patchouli - I have received mixed feedback, but I personally love it so I won't stop wearing it! After a good 12 to 14 hours, the prickly wood note begins to fade and a warm, dry amber begins to shine through. It essentially remains a mix of the woods and a dry amber until it quiets to nothingness. Truly beautiful and magical if you favor these notes!

Very sweet balsamic and ambery fruity scent that dries down to a sweet woody base. The wood is peppery and a bit oud smoky. Very soft oud, not the barnyard type but spicy peppery.

I bought it during my visit in Dubai, after a night of sniffing the test card the salesperson gave me. It lingers on you and in my opinion, will be a perfect representation of what "Dubai" would smells like, but that is just my very subjective view.

Sillage is good but as I live in the humid tropical country the longevity, it doesn't linger that long albeit it stays very close to the skin. It doesn't project heavily after a while and become very soft vanilla. Sweet wood would be the perfect word to describe this.

Very lovely and round fragrance. Another winner from Ajmal in my opinion.

Reminds me of Paco Black XS without the fruity note that people talk about.. and for that reason it is a more mature and tailored version of Black XS. This is a damp, slightly thick and sweet masculine fragrance. It did not have the same lasting power on me as for others but when it lasted it did project well. This is the best in their line of 'Woods' ..they also have a 'Rose Wood' which also is a great albeit more unisex scent.

I agree with the previous reviewer that the lasting power on this is simply amazing. Going on 24 hours right now. My nose gets a slight resemblance to Amouge Jubilation in the initial stages but then the drydown comes and it morphs into a somewhat complex scent. Definitely Amber throughout but I can pick up the patchouli and sandalwood in the background. This is really a five star fragrance IMHO. I have not been disappointed with Ajmal yet. Great stuff!

This 3rd juice of this fantastic trio named Amber Wood is just out there, I can't even really figure it out, but I can tell you that it smells like a sweet and sticky log of wood that's hot and humid like, and musty with a tad of armpit skank , and a hint of rotting fruit as if this whole shebang has been locked away in some sauna for years just festering away... but, this smells incredibly cozy warm and inviting! The sillage is very light, but the longevity is persistent, lasting through water kinda persistent. This W Series is extremely interesting. The 3 juices are all unique in smell, but they behave so mildly which makes them that much more beautiful, and the quality of these perfumes is astounding!

Edit: Please see my Edit under Hatkora Wood...

Edit #2: After spending ample time with this juice, the drydown is ridiculously long lasting, easily 24 hours, which leads me to that I firmly believe that there's some Agarwood in the base, because the far drydown is the deepest wood that I've ever smelled, and it smells wet, slightly rubbery and musty, but this is in no way a turn off, it smells ridiculously awesome, especially the combination of this, the Patchouli and the Amber, it really needs to be experienced to be appreciated. The potency and lasting power of this entire W Series is simply amazing. All 3 perfumes are very complex in their development and all of them are completely unique, my only complaint is if the Orris Root was not in this mix, because it 'does' make everything feel just a bit too powdery for my own personal tastes, but it's nothing that's overpowering.
