I "second" these three. They really are, without a doubt, the "creme de la creme" of amber frags ! ...
(Though I must admit that I've also found myself becoming really fond of TF's "Amber Absolute" lately ! ... And it lasts on me forever !)
If I could only choose one though ... It would probably be "Ambre 114". ... It is ever so slightly a little "more masculine", and also slightly less sweet.
But they are all gorgeous ! ... "Ambers" are definitely my fave fragrance "type" !
My two favorite ambers are Ambre 114 and Ambre Russe. They could not be more different. Ambre 114 is a refined, dry, smoothly herbal amber, like a superior version of Ambre Sultan ( and without that play-dough note ). Ambre Russe is rich, sweet, gourmand, boozy, and animalic; quite complex, and a bit over the top.

Yes I forgot Ambre Russe - wonderful.
I have a desire to explore amber scents and I only have L'air du désert marocain to go by. I hear a lot about Ambre Sultan and I'm intrigued by Tom Fords Amber Absolute. Whats your best amber scent?
My top 3 (in order of current preference):
L'Ombre Fauve - musk amber
Ambre Russe - booze amber
Ambre Sultan - spice amber
I really love ambers!
What did happened for Avatars !!!!!!
Another vote for Ambre Russe. Heavenly, heavenly stuff. I'm also very, very fond of SL's Ambre Sultan, though. Amber's one of my favorite notes. So rich and deep and lovely...
I love both SL Amber Sultan and TF Amber Absolute .... Tom Ford wins it for me tho
very easy decision, Annick Goutal Ambre Fetiche
Black XS, MPG's Ambre Precieux and Ed Hardy Man.
I've also got L'Artisan's Ambre Extreme, which I find a bit too feminine for the first half hour or so.
I love ambers, here are my favorites in order of preference:
Histoires de Parfums Ambre 114 (Holy grail amber for me!)
Montale Blue Amber
Tom Ford Amber Absolute
Serge Lutens Amber Sultan
Ambre Russe, by far, but Ambre 114 is a close second, and the two are polar opposites within their genre.
Ambre 114 or Ambre Precieux for softer amber. Profumum's Ambra Aurea for a more forceful Amber. But Ambre Russe, Ambre Sultan, and Amber Absolute are al worthy.
Ambre Fetiche is my current favorite. I like Ambre Sultan a lot as well. Ambre Precieux made a good first impression, but I need to sample more.
I really want to do an exhaustive testing of amber-centered fragrances!
ointments and perfume delight the heart....

Another vote for the boozy Ambre Russe by Parfum d'Empire.

Ambre 114 is my favorite amber by far, followed by MPG Ambre Precieux. Ava Luxe's Ambra Tibet is worth seeking out, it is a dry spicy amber.

Ambre Sultan..Serge Lutens. Rich, dry Amber blended with sandalwood,patchouli,coriander,and spices to perfection.
Blue Amber..Montale is right on It's heel's.
Don't panic. Just stay calm, and reload....
I love the anise note in Armani Privé Ambre Soie.
Ambre Sultan is sort king of the ambers I think.
