    LOL! Believe me, it does get better once you get your head around the herbaceous aspect. My main problem with it is that it's very thin for an EDP.

    Not very easy to do; but if I had to choose three at this moment:

    Amber Absolute (easily the best amber I have ever experienced)

    Ambre Russe

    Ambre Noir ( Sonoma Scent Studio)



    Ambre Sultan? Too herbal...... smells like a spice rack dipped in amber

    Prada Man is the only really Amber centric on my list...I could learn to really love this...
    Habit Rouge, so complex and well blended that the individual notes of amber work more in the ensemble...A classic
    Caron Pour Un Homme is mainly a Lavender Vanilla frag, but the Amber does wonderful things in the heavenly drydown....Another Classic and my current Signature...

    For me its Ambre Sultan from SL. A loud herbal smack at opening but it quiets down (somewhat) after 30min. or so. The longevity for me is at least 8 to 10hrs. the projection above average.

    My favorite amber is Les Nombres d'Or Ambre by Mona di Orio. It has above average projection and superb longevity. The thing I like most about it is it is not sickeningly sweet like most ambers are. The dry-down is out of this world incredible. A hidden gem to be sure.

    The first runner-up is Ambre 114 by Histoire de Parfums, followed by the very different but equally superb Ambre Sultan and Versilia Vintage Ambra.

    +1, only I get 24 hours longevity and excellent projection for the duration. To me, this is a 'dirty' amber. I remember reading a review that said this smells like dirt; I sort of know where the reviewer is coming from, but it's a very authentic, unashamed amber. Quite linear but if you like amber, this won't bother you.
