    Default Favorite Amber Fragrance?

    What's your favorite amber fragrance?

    Default Re: Favorite Amber Fragrance?

    I have two: for daywear, general wear, business wear, etc. I like L'artisan's L'eau d'ambre.

    For evening wear, no comparison to CN Scent Intense.

    (EDIT: Just received Prada Amber Pour Homme 12/21... it's not bad. Definitely not my favorite, but an interesting take on Amber with the soapiness added.)

    Amber is on my short list of favorite notes.

    Ambre Narguile is my current fave -- but there are many I have yet to sample.

    Good question.

    The answer? Costume National Scent Intense. Day or night.

    I love L'air du Desert Marocain, but I wouldn't characterize it as an amber fragrance.

    I've started to really like amber. I have MANY that I have yet to try, but I'm in love with Serge Lutens Ambre Sultan, a recent purchase.

    Wow, no votes for MPG's Ambre Precieux? I like that one, and Soir d'Orient. SL's Ambre Sultan is right there too. Montale's Blue Amber would be in my list as well. Mona di Orio's Lux also has a very ambery drydown that makes it one of my faves.

    Yeah, another vote for Ambre Precieux ... great "start to finish" amber. No waiting for a drydown like Ambre Sultan.

    I also think L'Artisans Amber Extreme is quite good.

    I love amber, either as the main attraction or in a supportive role ...

    My two favorites are Etro Ambra, when you want your amber to whisper, and Ambre Sultan, when you want it to kick some ass ...

    Have yet to try Ambre Sultan, Ambre Extrême, and Ambre Précieux, but am anxious to sample all three.

    I've tried Precieux, Sultan, Russe, and Blue and thus far, Blue is my favorite because it's the purest, warmest, sweetest, and headiest of the four. I haven't tried Extreme or Narguile, but I am very eager to; I also have a sample of Ambre Canelle on the way, so stay tuned.
    My current top 10: Richard James; Clive Christian No. 1 for Men; L'Artisan Voleur de Roses; Creed Aventus, Erolfa, Santal Imperial, Virgin Island Water, and Windsor; Serge Lutens Chergui and Gris Clair

    Though there are no Amber notes listed in the pyramid.. I find Agatha Brown's Conquest my absolute favorite "ambery" scent... without doubt. Slightly soapy, smooth.. beautiful floral middles and tonka in the drydown. In the same vein as Obsession for men, but far superior and a much better blend of notes.

    ...and my wish list grows. Based on the previous comments, I'm sold on L'air du desert marocain and MPG's Ambre Precieux. I recently ordered MPG Santal Noble based on reviews and sandalwood is one of my top five notes. Can't wait to see what MPG does with amber.

    BTW Kiehl's has a ltd. edition amber body wash. Spicy amber notes dominate but a touch of floral softens it a bit.

    L'Artisan's Eau d'Ambre is my favorite. I prefer it to my bottle of Ambre Extreme, which is the edp. To me this is another example of a L'Artisan edt beating out an edp. (CdG 2 edt beats out its edp too.)

    I've also got Ambre Precieux and like it but find it just okay when I wear it--not enough quirky adventure. Gold that shines too much.

    I'm not into Ambre Sultan either, although its opening and first few hours are fantastic--they smell like amber hidden inside the wood drawer of an old desk. Oh how I like that old drawer effect. Wish a scent were that alone. After that top disappears Ambre Sultan's amber smells too much like a sweet cake to me.
