Not surprisingly, the aphrodisiacal properties of Gray Amber – a natural Sperm Whale secretion – have made it a precious ingredient in perfumes ever since ancient times, equally popular among Greeks, Romans and Egyptians. The contrast between fresh marine scent and warm sensuality is the secret behind this rare substance becoming a strong symbol of virility. Spicy top notes, Thyme and Cinnamon, merge in an intensely masculine heart of Incense, Black Ebony and Clary Sage. In the dry down, Gray Amber takes on a quasi-mythical quality, blending richly with Opoponax and Benzoin.
Eau de Iceberg 74 Amber’s virile soul comes through clearly and distinctly in the packaging, where khaki – now an important element of the male wardrobe, not just a basic feature of army garb – is the color of choice.
