    After several ambre-based scents, the best one I've ever come across is Maison Kurkdjian's APOM Homme.

    don't take this the wrong way, but did you try searching? There are SOOOOO many threads listing out the various amber frags with reviews.
    NEW STUFF FOR SALE - TOM FORD, Guerlain, Acqua Di Parma, Serge Lutens, Byredo, Diptyque, etc. .

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    A lot depends on how you want your amber. Sweet? Dry? Boozy? Spicy? Leathery? Something else?

    Depending on what you like, you will get a different answer.

    What would be examples of leathery ambers?

    I really like Ambre 114.

    Ambre Russe is also really good, but not if you're looking to experience a more "pure" amber. Russe is spicy/boozy/leathery.

    Like others have mentioned I own and like Histoire de Parfume Ambre 114...also do not discount Dior's Ambre Nuit, which i found to be a very rich warm amber...very nicely done scent.

    There are too many Shades of Amber to list a 'best', but L'Ombre Fauve is my go to amber as the weather turns cooler.

    A 'furry' amber that goes well with autumn and winter.
