    Being both amber-centric, they are similar. But they are also very different. AP is sweet. AS is dry. AP is more ambery and combines it with resins and balsams. AS has spices. They are both beautiful and so I, myself, don't really like the versus thing.

    I prefer the less sweety amber flavors.. On their duration?

    Ambre Precieux is much more towards sweet. Sultan is more spicy and herbal, making it feel very dry in comparison. Both have significant sillage and great longevity. I tend to like sweeter ambers, so if I were to buy a bottle, it would be AP.

    I own and enjoy both, but I voted for the MPG because I find it more wearable and consistently enjoyable. I have to be in the right mood for Ambre Sultan or I get annoyed by it.

    I loved my samples of both of these ambers enough to progress to decants of both....then, in a really close call, I went for Ambre Sultan as being the one most bottle-worthy....but only just.
    We're all in the same game; just different levels. Dealing with the same hell; just different devils.

    I don't really understand the point of blank vs. blank. Obviously others do, or we wouldn't have so many of these kinds of threads. It's all fine though, whatever works!

    I gotta agree. Ambre Precieux, for what it is, is much too overpriced. More like a $70 scent than what it commands. Sultan has its own identity and maintains my interest.
    Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Nicole Miller (vintage), Opium pour Homme, Oxford & Cambridge...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of Jil Sander Feeling Man, Cacharel Nemo, Bijan for Men EDC, Lanvin for Men, Giorgio VIP, Il Lancetti and other old school frags ....etc. I have samples to swap.

    If you're trying to decide between the two, I suggest sampling them for yourself. I consider both to be among the finest amber-centered fragrances I've tried, and you can't go too far wrong either way.

    Caveat: I only know Ambre Précieux in it's older version, and I don't know whether or to what degree it has been tinkered with in Maître Parfumeur et Gantier's recent wave of reformulations.

    I own and love these two frags. AS is more "rugged" than AP. AP is more refined. AS is more dense.

    Ambre Precieux is much better IMO.

    I have and love both. Precieux is softer and sweeter and more powdery, Sultan is resinous and has a "burn". Both are wonderful.

    If you want to choose one over other, the only way is to test both and then decide (if you can...)

    I think they are about equally as good only in very different directions. I like them both about the same, and I dislike them equally too but for different reasons.
