    Default Re: In your opinium what is the best " amber " based fragance ever ????

    Favorite: Amber Absolute (almost pure liquid amber)

    Others that i like

    Ambre Precieux (very vintage feel, like a 20s Guerlain)
    Ambre 114 (ultra warm, confortable, it embraces you)

    Ambre Russe and Ambra are also fantastic, but i prefer the first mentioned.

    I almost hate ambre sultan, too much rotten to my tastes

    Ambre Narguille is my favourite thusfar....

    However Ambre 114 seems like it could be a top contender

    Either Serge Lutens Ambre Sultan or Andy Tauer's L'Air du Desert Marocain, they fought each other for top spot.

    But that's just in my experience.

    If anyone is interested I'm selling HdP Ambre 114 on the BST.
    For good, anatomic reasons, scent fosters memory more readily than any other sense.

    Ambre Precieux and Ambre Sultan are my two favorites (in that order). Two others that I would choose between if I were to get a new amber are Ambre Aurea and Ambre 114. I'm also really looking forward to trying the new MPG Ambre Dore. Ambre Russe makes me a bit queazy for some reason.
