I received my bottle of Amber Absolute today as well. I agree with everything that you said. Longevity is outstanding. I'm at nine hours at this point and it's still going.
I've got to say that one of my all time favorite colognes is Gucci Pour Homme which was Tom Ford's claim to fame at Gucci. If I were to give this fragrance a nicname it would be Gucci Pour Homme Intense.
