Royal Egyptian Amber and Honeysuckle Fragrance Reviews

Strangely, I smell little amber and even less honeysuckle in Lucy B Royal Egyptian Amber and Honeysuckle. Perhaps these notes smell differently in Egypt? I should say that I am wearing the perfume oil, and I tend to have issues with finding the intended scent amidst the carrier oil. Often everything melds together into one amorphous, indescribable something or other.

The composition as it appears in the perfume oil is slightly sweet and vaguely ambery but not really floral. Others have likened Egyptian Amber and Honeysuckle to Thierry Mugler Alien, but I find nothing like that here (which is not necessarily a bad thing...). Perhaps the eau de parfum would be a better medium in this case?

I hate to admit this, but I agree with another reviewer: "it's not too bad."

I tested a rollerball and couldn't smell much. However, on the car ride home it warmed up and smelled good. I'd like it as a purse fragrance for on the go. It's warm and stays close to the skin, but I don't get an Alien vibe from it. It mostly smells like a very sweet amber with a little honeysuckle.

The other reviews are right, this does remind me somewhat of Alien. I actually hate Alien, but I don't mind this. I don't love this either, but it's not too bad. There's something that reminds me of sweet-tarts though, so all i can think of is candy. Candy and.... dryer sheets.

I think Lucy B makes lovely inexpensive fragrances but this Lucy B is all about the amber on my skin. I don't get ANYTHNIG sweet, no honeysuckle, no jasmine, no peach. Just smooth, warm amber. I love amber but I was hoping for a warm spicy honeysuckle. No dice.

I like it , I think I would love it if I hadn't worn it on a blistering hot day. Too strong for summer in NOLA but would be perfect for the winter or fall.

I am really disappointed by this one. I REALLY want a great, go-to amber perfume, ever since I smelled Prada Amber, which I HALF-love. But this is NOT an amber scent. It is kind of a peach/floral. Smells exactly like Lancome Poeme, which is an obnoxious, chemical 90s perfume. Totally does not smell like a natural perfume, and really shouldn't have "amber" in the name. I am fully willing to give their other fragrances a try, though. I love the packaging and the prices are great. I think this one is just totally not for me.

I really like this one. I've never thought about it until I read the previous review, but it does have some similarity to Alien, but it is warmer and more comforting. I love both though.

Uber over-the-top grandiose name for a very pleasant Honeysuckle/Amber fragrance, in which jasmine wafts prettily and a wee, wee bit of patchouli and something vaguely woody ("cashmere wood"?) wave discreetly from the distant background.
Try as I might, I don't get any peach at all, but then the main notes in my nose are amber, honeysuckle and jasmine, and I have to really strain to discern the patchouli and wood. The fragrance doesn't change from application to dry down and beyond, so it is pretty linear but also always pretty.

This was my first Lucy B experience, and the little tester so enthused me that I had to get the full size eau de parfum.
Its really much better than it sounds, the amber lends the humbly sweet honeysuckle a touch of earthy exoticism, the jasmine makes it somehow more noble, and the patchouli and woods in the way distant background play a nice counterpoint.

As to the high flown Royal Egyptian thing - for an Australian perfume no less! - : if it conjures fabulousness in your imagination, then the perfume name has done its job. I guess "Deep Outback Aboriginal Honeysuckle and Amber" just didn't have that same marketing je ne sais quoi, although I would have dug it.

Amber and Honeysuckle is a lot less simple and a lot more elegant than it sounds, and would be great in any season. It trails prettily behind you and lasts for at least 6 hours.
Additionally, its from a relatively little known niche company, so you may well be the only one you know wearing it, *and* its very affordable.

Definitely try before you buy (indiescents - not affiliated - has samples for sale), but in my amber/sweet perfume loving nose, this is an 8/10 for both the the potion, its lasting power and its sillage. Great discovery!

PS: If you like Thierry Mugler's Alien, you may enjoy Amber and Honeysuckle - I get a similarity in the vibe of the jasmine/amber combo, although this is simpler and lighter than Alien or even its flankers.
