    Man, all the strengths are with Anteaus. History, recruiting, coaching, and solid training. A blend so perfect in all its parts. It'll be a shocker if some pretender here gives it a knock.

    Agreed - Antaeus gets my vote along with Jaipur.

    Personally I think this is a no-brainer. Ambre Sultan I think will probably go through and I'd vote for anything that was up against Farenheit which I cannot stand, it makes me feel slightly nauseous whenever I encounter it.
    In a world where people smell bad, it is the personal responsibility of every Basenoter to improve the world one SotD at a time...

    Agreed also !!. (Though Jaipur is worthy stuff and deserving of a vote anyway)

    Another vote for Antaeus and Jaipur or rather against vile Fahrenheit.
    I'm screwed anyways, but this looks like a fun game, once again.

    All contenders even at 12 votes...

    Looks like strengths and votes are going in different directions here.

    Ambre Sultan is just one of the myriad good ambers out there.
    Antaeus is an inimitable piece of history.

    The Sultan swings. I'm amazed at Jaipur's resources. Didn't think it would get past round 1, and now it's trouncing Fahrenheit? Where have all those Boucheron fans been hiding? I do think it's a nice oriental, but not all that special.

    Last year Ambre Sultan had a great run. If I recall, it was a struggle to get enough votes for Habit Rouge to overcome AS. I am not surprised that it is doing well again this year!

    Ambre Sultan's very good in the first couple of rounds but in a 12-round fight, powerhouse Antaeus will outlast Sultan.
    Jaipur pour Homme vs Fahrenheit is a case of substance vs style IMO. Go Jaipur!

    I don't consider Ambre Sultan as a best in class amber...so Antaeus it is.

    Fahrenheit takes the other one.

    But Ambre Sultan isn't competing against other Ambres. It's competing against Antaeus. Shouldn't you base it on which is better of the two?

    Ambre Sultan + Jaipur!! Two of my very favorites, both are usually in my top ten lists!
    I've trademarked the color bleu

    It seems Antaeus' fate is sealed.
    Wish it had lost to a worthy contender.

    A second-rate amber can't match up to one of the best woody chypre's around (even in its reformulated guise). This was implied by my post.

    Antaeus has kept it close but has trailed basically all day.

    Boy, this is going to get interesting from now on. I think Guerlain Vetiver vs. GIT will decide whether gupts or my friend the_good_life will be the front-runner.
