    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.
    Since noone will no little french natural brands I wont mention my treasured gem, a little linear amber, by them

    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.

    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 second Matthewfoo on L'eau d'Ambre. I've got several ambers that I like, but that's the one I like the best.
