Farmacia SS. Annunziata dal 1561: Ambra Nera

Ambra Nera starts off with a sugary combination of honey and vanilla, before revealing moments later, some herbs (eucalyptus mostly) and incense (giving the scent a balsamic tinge). This odd yet alluring concoction does give off whiffs resembling dried urine (probably attributed to honey and herbs), but not so much in a repulsive sense. As it dries down, it starts to get a little smokier and woodier. A rather lightweight herbal-amber.
