I gave Ambush as a gift. It usually takes a few minutes but the scent improves with body heat. It is not "weak" so much as it is understated. Adding more won't improve the scent on you, but it is truly a mesmerizing aroma. It is not musty, but it calls to mind elms and oaks and other woodsy settings. Think of it this way; imagine eating some subtle yet flavorful cheese and grapes. Now imagine eating those within a grove of redwoods.

I wore both Ambush and Tabu in the 60s, and enjoyed both scents. I still wear Tabu, but I am not impressed with the reformulated Ambush scent. The old formula was so much better. Please Dana, bring back the old formula and let US decide wich we want!

      I was not too impressed that I didn't receive what was shown in the picture. I LOVE the smell of Ambush as I used to wear it in high school but it's a real pain not having a spray bottle.

          This cheapy is a power pack of overtly sexual and heady notes. It is quiet but insistent.

              The price was unbelievable for the amount of ounces contained in the bottle. I remembered this fragrance from long ago, but it doesn't smell as good as I thought it used to. It is too weak and must be frequently reapplied. I plan to order a different one next time.

              Answer to 55 from Texas & others

              By A J the old compounder

              from Wilkes-Barre Pa

              Comments about Dana Ambush Perfume:

              I worked for Dana Perfumes for 33 years in the compounding dept from 1963 until 1997. The original Ambush cologne was a compaion product to mens Canoe colgne. They are the exact Fragrance, but Ambush is heavier for women. Sometime in the early 1990s, the powers that be came with up with idea too make a new fragrence for Ambush. I told them I didn't think that was a good idea, but they new better. The new fragrence was very nice, but should have had new name. Needless to say both products suffered. If you want the old Ambush buy mens Canoe cologne and put it on a heavier.

              Considering the size, this has to be the best value perfume I have ever bought from this site.

              Amazing smell, although not quite as good as Tabu (nothing can beat that), but this is a very close second.

              Only bad thing is that the bottle is not the same as in the picture.
