Chembur by Byredo is an Amber Spicy fragrance for women and men.
Chembur (aka Encens Chembur) was a spicy incense fragrance with surprisingly soft and delectable incense for all tastes. With top layer of Amalfi lemon, ginger, Calabrian bergamot, and elemi resin the scent uncovers the main core that spins around a warm and unusual incense, charged with labdanum and nutmeg. It is a rare and unique interpretation of incense without getting overloaded.

Rather than solemn, this fragrant incense is warm with ginger, nutmeg, musk and citrus. The incense is more of a comforting foundation to the cheerful blend. It's not intense, but lasts about 7 hours on my skin. It works best in spring and autumn, as long as it's not unbearably hot. It's not smoky or ashy - it's more of a casual office or even a spring outdoor party scent. I find it unisex. I purchased a full bottle and I'm happy I did.
P.S. If incense isn't for you I'd still try this. I suggest trying Gypsy Water, De Los Santos, and Baudelaire for other unisex scents by Byredo. Ooo
I received a ton of compliments wearing this one. It is intense yet dries down to a warm resin. Would pair well with an ambergris, citrus, or vanilla based fragrance, if you’re into custom blending.
This is the first Byredo scent I’ve tried and this particular scent is not for me. It smells like incense... so if that is your goal then by all means this would be something you’d like. I wasn’t able to smell the other notes described.
