    I think of cologne in terms of light, fresh, citrus-y scents. In the sense of that, plus amber, by far and away the best example I know is Comme des Garcons Anbar ( mandarin leading to a lightly spiced amber drydown ).

    In terms of ambery fragrances in general, my pick is split between the light, herbal, dry Histoires de Parfums Ambre 114 and the decadent, boozy, sweet Parfum d'Empire Ambre Russe.

    In addition to the stellar picks by the fellas, Molinard Ambre is a pretty good basic,
    suitable for layering, amber.

    Ambre Absolute by Tom Ford is excellent. My reference Ambers are Versilia Vintage Ambra Mediterenea by Profumi del Forte and Ambre Precieux by Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier.

    Neil Morris Burnt Amber is very good. Very smokey, firey amber. As the name suggests!
