Ubar by Amouage is an Amber Floral fragrance for women.
Ubar captures the very essence of romance and regains it with echoes of bergamot and tangerine atop a floral hear with lily of the valley, damask rose, orange blossom, tuberose, and ylang-ylang all pierced with Palisander rosewood. A full bloom of jasmine, heated up with ambergris and sandalwood evokes majestic glory and overwhelming sensuality. The resinous and woody base gives the floral heart an eternal presence and tenacity.

(Wow, I just wrote my review and read the previous reviewer's comment and it's so similar!) This smells different than the Ubar sample I received directly from Amouage, however, I got my sample before Ubar was re-released, so it may have been an older formulation than the one I got from Scent Split. I prefer the "older" one but I love this one, too. I plan to purchase a full bottle when it hits the "grey market".
In regards to the scent itself, it has a nostalgic, somewhat retro feel to it and does reflect the notes as listed.
I am not sure what it is but your Ubar that I received from Scent Split did not smell quite the same or lasted as long as long as the sample that I received from Amouage. I still love the scent but it is different.
