    Sadly, it's one of several fragrances which have a particular synthetic white musk to which I'm very sensitive -- these musks come across as high-pitched and "screechy" to me and tend to overwhelm a composition (vintage M7 does this for me too). I wish I knew how to tame that reaction in myself, because I think I'd really enjoy this otherwise. I also realize I'm in a minority. Alas.

    It's not bad, but to my very untrained nose, it's similar to many other ambers I've worn/tested.

    It is very pleasant, and perfectly safe. At times, I feel it smells like a delicious coffee.

    One of my favorites. Can't believe it wasn't part of my collection until recently.

    I almost cashed in few weeks ago on 125ml but I walked away thinking it's the middle of the summer and that I would lock $200 unnecessary for months. Love it, just unsure about the projection.

    It´s ok, a safe and unspectacular amber.

    Great if you enjoy stand alone ambers. In an olfactory sense it sits somewhere between a classic amber smell like AP and a modern resinous smell like AS and AA.

    My favorite amber. Just a perfectly balanced composition - not too dry, not too sweet.

    I like it better than Amber Sultan(more versatile), Amber Precieux(not as "dusty") and Ambre Russe.

    +1, up there with Amber Absolute and Ambre Nuit on my list of favorite ambers. It is quite a bit like Ambre Precioux, but I've only tested that one a couple times so I can't differentiate as much.
    Current favorites_____Black Tourmaline_____Gucci Pour Homme II_____Memoir Man_____Tuscan Leather______Montale Aoud and Pine_____Sel Marin_____Invasion Barbare_____Tonka Imperial____Dior Homme Intense_____L'Humaniste____Santal 33_____Bois d'Argent_____Nio_____MFK Oud_____Lumiere Noire_____Bois d'Encens_____Cuir Ottoman

    Before trying Ambre 114, my hopes was really high and expecting to encounter a different amber-based perfume. But Ambre 114 is not a groundbreaking scent. It's more like a toned down amber powerhouse with soft vanille and spices. Also it's not a modern take on amber like Bond's NY Amber, Dior Ambre Nuit or LM Ambre Muscadin.

    So If you find reference ambers like SL Ambre Sultan or Tom Ford Amber Absolute hard to wear, Ambre 114 might be a good alternative.

    I love it, but I prefer Blue Amber which, in my opinion, has a similar vibe.

    I had a sample and wore it yesterday. Nothing special to me. I think Ambre sultan if you are looking for amber just blows it out of the water
