    Ambre Sultan, of course. It's spicy. It's warm. It's strong. And it's so seductive.

    Amber 114. It's rich. It's smooth. It's romantique. And it is so diffirent.

    Montale Blue Amber. I love the first 3 hours of this amber, which is strong, sensual, and animalic. After that, you will have a creamy smooth sweet amber scent that lasts long forever.

    Finally, with the price under 60bucks for 100ml bottle in so many discount websites, Annick Goutal Amber Fetish is good, too.

    Sultan, 114, Russe are all very good, as well as Ambre Nuit by Dior.
    Ambre precieux was too boring for me.

    I finally got samples of Ambre Sultan and Ambre Russe. The sultan on the opening was very spicy like something from a spice rack in your kitchen which developed a sweet amber scent underneath the spices. In fact I think for me its better than Chergui but I'm wondering if its very wearable when you are out and about.

    Ambre Russe - This is one hell of a exotic fragrance, I get whiskey and vodka with leather lol. This smells like you have spilled a liqueur onto yourself and then someone has doused you with baby powder. This seems to get better when it has settled down, I will have to spend more time with this.

    In my opinion, the best Amber scent I tested so far is Ambre Sultan, in fact it is already present among the most high-ranking entries of the "future purchases"-list

    I see L'Artisan's Eau d'Ambre (the edt, not the edp Ambre Extreme that Renato mentioins) needs a shout out. I think it's my favorite amber.

    I don't like frags that are heavy in amber. About the most I can stand is the amount in Messe de Minuit.

    I haven't tried Ambre Russe...yet...but after all the good props on this thread I'll have to track some down. The best amber for me, though, is hands down Amber Absolute. I have and like both Ambre Sultan and Ambre Precieux but they don't quite compare, in my opinion. In fact AS to me is less about the ambre and more about the spices, which is fine, but AA is so much more!

    Definitely. I realise that many find this one uninspiring, but it is one of my most used ambers. Good quality, straight-forward and traditional amber.

    Default Re: What's Your Best Amber Scent?

    After trying Ambre Russe more I have concluded that it is just to rich and challenging for my tastes. The boozy nature of the scent was just to much for me and the fragrance is almost like a piece of art, it can be appreciated but not worn.

    Ambre Sultan I like a lot especially in the way the spice and sweet amber are constantly shifting place in prominence. I love the way you catch a waft of creamy sweet amber that wakens your senses. The spice is good to and never overpowers, in fact this gets better as time goes on. Once that beautiful amber flower's on your skin it really for me is heavenly.

    I also like Tauers L'air D M which is also very nice and has a amber that I appreciate as well. So for me with the ambers I have tried it is between these two. I am wearing the sultan as I type and it's soooooo gooooooood. lol

    I'm wearing Ambre Sultan today and though it is lovely and definitely full bottle worthy, I want to recommend another favourite; Ambre Gris by Balmain. It's not as sweet as Sultan, though it has a delicious caramel aspect. The sweetness is offset by a sprinkling of salt, making it for me, an amber scent that works well in summer too. It's not as in-your-face AMBER! as Sultan, but it's a comfortable and easy to wear kind of scent. And I like the disco ball stopper, but I know many find it too over the top.

    All the best ones I know about have been mentioned a few times already, but I just wanted to add that when I wore Ambre Precieux (vintage) the other day to work, I got two compliments from co-workers, one of whom interrupted herself in mid-sentence to tell me how good I smelled! (The re-formuated version you can get now is excellent as well. I have, and wear, both.)

    I've only sampled SL's Ambre Sultan enough to decide that it is outstanding and sooner or later I will probably buy a full bottle of it.

  49. #169

    Default Re: What's Your Best Amber Scent?

    I have Ambre Russe, Ambre Sultan and Blue Amber, with some decants of l'air (i don't consider it and "amber fragrance"), ambre precieux, l'ombre fauve and ambre 114

    I love the first 3 in no particular order: Russe is complex, original, boozy, rich, kinda decadent. The Sultan is herbal, strong, with character. Blue Amber is the easiest to wear, more a sweet crowd pleaser than the others, not as loud as the sultan, but very very longlasting.

    Ambre precieux is "too polite" for my tastes. L'Ombre Fauve, i've worn it once and didn't get that much amber out of it. Ambre 114 is austere, need to test it more.

    L'Ombre Fauve is outstanding to me. Maybe not as much of an amber scent as most mentioned in this thread. Some musk there too, but I guess it is amber dominated more than anything else. Wears super cleanly on me. Which is not to say "soapy" or "fresh'"- one of those scents that makes me feel like I just stepped out of the shower if that makes sense. I've noticed many of my favorites make me feel that way. A great underrated scent.

    Absolutely should be included.

    Also, I'm adding XIII La Treizième Heure to this mix. Comes across as a semi-dry amber note in the mid range eventhough I don't believe amber is listed as a predominant note. Dayyuuuummmm good tho.

    My first fragrance post , but I've been smitten by the Ambra Aurea bug and am compelled to suggest you give it a try. I have a lot more ambers to scope out myself, but this one is going to be a pal for some time.

    It's pretty single minded in a constant all day friendly way, so while not as conversationally witty as some other ambers, it's always grinning and giving encouragement. It also brings a smile to my face.
