The Scoop

Created by the renowned perfumer Pierre Bourdon, the first MDCI fragrance for men, Ambre Topkapi was meant to embody strength, power and wealth, and was inspired by the striking figure crowning the men's flacon. The scent, with its bracing and strapping notes, is forceful and daring. We admire the way the tradition and modernity meet and intertwine in this handsome, truly regal composition. The top notes are the perfumer's nod to the classic masculine scents: the beginning of Ambre Topkapi is brightened by bergamot, spiced up by ginger and have a cool, herbal undertone of basil, thyme and lavender. The heart notes, with their combination of luxurious leather and soft, sweet sandalwood, add depth, warmth and what we can only described as a very “expensive” feel to the blend. In the base, vanilla and amber ornament the scent beautifully, bringing to it a wonderfully exotic feel, making it evocative of faraway lands, luxurious palaces, and Eastern splendor. This unexpected exoticism is where the traditional meets modern. This ambery-vanillic warmth is also what should make Ambre Topkapi wearable for women as well as for men.

Here's what other people are saying about Ambre Topkapi...
This is the kind of parfum that once I smell it, I have to take a few more whiffs because I can't get enough. I wear it with darker hues of formalwear. Fruity notes compliment the amber very nicely.

It's just okay. Not my style. Smells of high quality ingredients. Blended well. I feel like whatever I have in my wardrobe wouldn't do this fragrance any justice, which is the case with the other MDCI scent I've tried. I'd feel pretentious wearing either of them. Probably perfect for someone else. I prefer something a bit more heady and intoxicating. (may consider when my portfolio hits 9 figures!)

I was looking for something for my husband who loves CK one. This is the first scent that has all 4 of those notes ( bergamot, cardamom, pineapple, musk) in it plus others that I have found yet. I am getting a sample as it says can be worn by men and women. Like CK one. This could just be The Next One.
