    They are both wonderful. I own Ambre Precieux and only have a sample of Ambra Aurea, but I'm impressed with it. I'm not sure I need another amber fragrance right now, though. I can't imagine that any man who wants an amber fragrance would be dissatisfied with Ambre Precieux. I think you should go for that one, and then if you still feel the need for another amber fix down the road, go for Ambra Aurea.

    I own Ambra Aurea...my first big purchase. I love it and it lasts and lasts - even after a shower I can smell it the next day.

    It has a wonderful smokey amber resinous quality that's incredible and I think hard to beat.

    That said, I think that Ambre Précieux is excellent and probably more versatile.

    I doubt I'll ever use all 100ml of Ambra Aurea, but I'm thinking of layering it with some other fragrances for effect.

    I'd suggest a decant of Ambra Aurea and a FB purchase of Ambre Précieux.

    Thanks guys. Ambre Précieux is very reasonably priced so I will pick up a bottle but Ambra Aurea is simply gorgeous.

    Why not also try Versilia Vintage Ambra Mediterrenea too?

    for swap/sale:

    Agreed. This is one of my top three ambers, along with Amber Absolute & Ambra Mediterranea.
    Ambre Precieux is lovely, but much sweeter to my nose, & much less powerful than these three.

    I couldn't agree more - by far the best amber I've ever smelled!

    +1

    But may I replace Amber absolute with Montale's Blue Amber. It's going to take something really special to change this trio of personal favourites.

    I also think I'm a sucker for dark ambers...
