    I would like to add a new discovery for me. Histoires de Parfum Ambre 114, great complex frag. Also Ambre Russe, great amber with a kickass boozy opening.

    Cheers

    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.

    I am very curious of PG's L'Ombre Fauve though.

    Ambre Narguile and Ambre soie is very nice.

    I did not liked Ambre Sultan at all.

    Also, i need to try Ambre Fetiche and Amber Absolute for the very good recommendations here

    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.

    I love many of the ambers mentioned in this thread. One of my favourites that's not mentioned though is Ambra del Nepal by I Profumi di Firenze.

    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.

    Russe has quite a bit of fair play here too.

    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.

    It's a tie between Ambre Sultan and Amber Absolute.
