    Thought I'd put another nice but lesser known amber out here. It's a resinous amber with leathery undertones from birch tar and cistus labdanum: AMBRE NOIR by Sonoma Scent Studio. Projection is moderate but longevity is 8-10 hrs especially given its close to extrait concentration.

    But I agree there is no 'best'. Another wearable fresh amber is Montale BLUE AMBER.

    I'd probably go with Nobile 1942 Ambre Nobile.

    Dior Ambre Nuit, MPG Ambre Precieux, and PG l'Ombre Fauve are others I really enjoy.

    Ever. That's a mighty long time. My favorite so far has been Hermes Ambre Narguile, it seems to be the amber in my arsenal that I reach for the most, but I'm not real experienced with Amber. I liked HdP a whole lot when I sampled it, but decided I had too many ambers to justify buying it. I also like TF's Amber Absolute which to me, smells a whole lot like Ambre Sultan, but despite my like for it, my bottle rarely see's action.

    Default Re: In your opinium what is the best " amber " based fragance ever ????

    Best as of today:

    Ambre Russe by Parfum d'Empire
    - Initially, one is treated to a heady, spirituous accord, supplied by the bitter, salty vodka and the bracing, effervescent champagne, with an underlying faint sweetness from the amber. This bozziness meanders to the spicy middle. It is here in the stewing heart that an astringent and sour coriander, a sweat-laden cumin and a dusty cinnamon infuse a bath of sweet and powdery tea which subsumes the opening. A somewhat creamy and smoky brew flows to the waiting base. A wonderful leather is the underpinning of the impressive drydown, with the leather initially giving a saddle leather feel then morphing into a smoky suede, carrying the honeyed and sultry amber to interact with a restrained and dark incense, whose tenacity tones down the amber's sweetness. A relished journey, this well crafted and refined composition has very good longevity and projection. Its multifaceted amber star has a terrific cast of supporting players.

    Favorite: Amber Absolute (almost pure liquid amber)

    Others that i like

    Ambre Precieux (very vintage feel, like a 20s Guerlain)
    Ambre 114 (ultra warm, confortable, it embraces you)

    Ambre Russe and Ambra are also fantastic, but i prefer the first mentioned.

    I almost hate ambre sultan, too much rotten to my tastes

    Ambre Precieux and Ambre Sultan are my two favorites (in that order). Two others that I would choose between if I were to get a new amber are Ambre Aurea and Ambre 114. I'm also really looking forward to trying the new MPG Ambre Dore. Ambre Russe makes me a bit queazy for some reason.
