I do not see the similarity that you are speaking about. Whereas Amber Absolute is a rich, sweet, smoky amber and incensey scent, APlS could hardly be described as such:
Absolue Pour le Soir by Maison Francis Kurkdjian - Upon application, one will be taken aback - no negative implication meant - by the animalic accord, which is usually experienced later on in most dirty scents. This awesome, dark sensuality is afforded by the civet, with its carnal, halitosis and fecal facets, cumin, with its sweat and urine character, as well as benzoin with its sweet, vanillic smokiness with a hint of powder. An arousing, dirty underwear aura romps to the awaiting heart. Here, in the metamorphic middle, a deliciously seductive, red rose with fruity glimmers and a cabernet-like facet envelops the wondrous, sensuous opening into its floral shelter, aided by ylang ylang which contributes its floral, licorice powderiness. A delightful honey intermingles with this enchanting blend and imparts its enticing sweetness, while exotic incense showers the rapturous mix with its warm spiciness. Transitioning to the waiting base, rich atlas cedarwood, with its balsamic and slightly camphoraceous and leathery aspects commingles with the softly sweet and creamy sandalwood. This entrancing marriage meanders to an alluring drydown. This splendid composition has good projection and longevity.
I see no redundancy at all.
