This fragrance is not an Oriental, but an Arab and a Lutens. That being the case, don't expect it to fit in.
The point of departure was a scented wax, found in a souk and long forgotten in a wooden box. The amber only became sultanesque after I reworked the composition using cistus, an herb that sticks to the fingers like tar, then added an overtone that nobody had ever dreamed of: vanilla. Why? Because vanilla is sticky, too, and it clung to my memory.
Our Fragrance Expert says:
“Ambre Sultan is perhaps the most popular and iconic of Luten’s scents. It’s an oriental take on amber (an accord of benzoin, labdanum and vanilla) that mixes the plushness of the accord with deep spices and herbs evoking the vivid image of Moroccan spice markets. It is nothing short of a classic.”
