    I will second the Amber Absolute. I get around 8-10 hrs. Strong projection for the fist 6 hours or so. Gorgeous incense/amber.

    hdP Ambre 114 - I get about seven hours from it and the projection is average.

    All of the above are good.

    Amber Sultan too. Also Mitzah and Extreme Amber but my reference عنبر is Versilia Vintage Ambra Mediterrenea - Profumi del Forte. Embracing and glowing.

    For me its Ambre Sultan from SL. A loud herbal smack at opening but it quiets down (somewhat) after 30min. or so. The longevity for me is at least 8 to 10hrs. the projection above average.

    It was a calculated risk. Unfortunately, I'm bad at math.

    My favorite amber is Les Nombres d'Or Ambre by Mona di Orio. It has above average projection and superb longevity. The thing I like most about it is it is not sickeningly sweet like most ambers are. The dry-down is out of this world incredible. A hidden gem to be sure.

    The first runner-up is Ambre 114 by Histoire de Parfums, followed by the very different but equally superb Ambre Sultan and Versilia Vintage Ambra.

    I have this often overlooked fragrance and like it quite a lot, but the amber is not the biggest player in this. Amber is there with a lot of other things, very nice. Also Amber Sultan and for a darker edge, By Kilian Amber Oud.

    I really enjoy Tom Ford Amber Absolute, it has a fantastic balance of incense and amber. Try Profumum Ambra Aurea if you want just a pure amber.

    +1, only I get 24 hours longevity and excellent projection for the duration. To me, this is a 'dirty' amber. I remember reading a review that said this smells like dirt; I sort of know where the reviewer is coming from, but it's a very authentic, unashamed amber. Quite linear but if you like amber, this won't bother you.
