I love amber and don't like Ambre Sultan either..but generally speaking, not much of a Lutens fan so far. Not sure what type of amber fume you are looking for, perhaps an amber with spice or vanilla? Amber Oud by Kilian is nice, imo..if you can do oud.
Some other ambers to try are perhaps the following:
Must De Cartier
Prada L'eau ambree
L'ambre des Merveilles by Hermes
Sensuous by Estee Lauder, very woody amber
L'eau d' Ambre by L'artisan(didn't work for me 100% but worth checkin out)
Amber Ylang Ylang by Estee Lauder (another one that didn't work for me but worth checkin out)
Amber Absolute, Tom Ford
I've heard good things about Blue Amber by Montale
Cinema by YSL has some amber and vanilla
and of course, there is that MPG as suggested above.
Ambre Sultan has been one of the very few ambers that I really didn't like thus far.
Hope that helps!
