    Post Adding an Amber frag.

    I'm going to add an Amber fragrance to my wardrobe, and here is my question...I've narrowed it down to 3,and don't know which way to go.Looking at the pyramid's for these 3, they all look interesting.Any input would be appreciated.
    1) Blus Amber... Montale
    2) Ambre Extreme... L'Artesian
    3) Ambre Russe... Parfum d' Empire
    Thank's Ron

    Blue Amber: sweet, rich and positively intoxicating.

    The order in which you list them is the same order in which I would rank them.

    I know the first two you mention, and both are excellent, The third is not one I have smelled, so I can say nothing about it.

    However, I would like to add a recommendation. Have you ever smelled Maître Parfumeur et Gantier Ambre Précieux? In my opinion, it's one of the best amber scents out there.

    Blue Amber is pretty nice, though Ambre Russe is more individual. Do yourself a favor, though, and don't buy an amber fragrance unless you've tried both Ambre Precieux and Serge Lutens's Ambre Sultan. They are very different, but I'm probably not the only one who sees them as head and shoulders above the rest.

    I've tried Ambre Sultan and can't say that it's better than Ambre Russe. I like Russe as it has a slightly sweeter (honey?) note that balances the amber a little. However, I think Sultan is perhaps more rich. I'm getting interested in the Montale after this thread!
