    Default Between two Titans - Ambre Sultan vs Chergui

    I have read many articles and good critiques in these perfumes. What do you think are at all the most special and memorable? I would like to know the opinion of Basenoters comparing these two Titans..

    Originality, durability, distinctiveness, diversity, uniqueness, witchcraft, evolution, adaptability, aesthetics, sensuality, sexuality, personality...

    They're both beautiful (IMO). I own and love both. I find, though, that I have to be more cautious with when and where I use Ambre Sultan. It can be a bit much. Chergui, on the other hand, is a safer bet and more appropriate in a wider variety of situations. My recommendation --- buy Chergui first, and then when you save up some more money go for the Ambre Sultan.

    Both excellent, but Chergui is more wearable for me

    I agree. I'm wearing Chergui today and loving the warmth of it. I always really like Ambre Sultan also, but if I had to pick one it would be Cherqui. It's the beautiful hay note that does it for me.

    I got to go with the Sultan as I find the spicy aspect to the scent to be more interesting than the sweetness of Chergui.

    Quite the opposite.
    While i do love both, AS is the one I own and feel better and more interesting wearing.

    ambre sultan, strictly for its witchcraft and durability

    I lean towards Chergui as my favorite of these two wonderful Lutens creations. The Sultan is pure ecstasy, but its oregano note is actually quite demanding. While Chergui's sweet, pipe tobacco accord has a comfort-zone quality that puts my mind in the fetal position.

    Ambre Sultan wins hands down, ditto. I wear Heritage EDP to the office so Ambre sultan wont be a prob (my FB's coming soon-ish i hope)

    I have both. I've used Chergui more regularly. Both are great.

    I own both, infact wore Chergui yesterday.

    Ambre Sultan was my first Lutens and will always be my first love from this range. Still has the magic, as has been said Chergui is easier to wear for many.

    Ambre Sultan, with more personality and statement.

    You really cannot compare the two.

    A Porsche Panamera is just as nice as a Porsche 911 Turbo!

    I think they compliment each other, Amber Sultan for those cold days and Chergui for those other days.

    Same here, J.

    While a good scent, AS isn't my favorite Amber. There quite a few that I enjoy over AS. That's why I'm off loading mine. Chergui is on the other hand, is pretty unique territory.

    I dont want to leave the topic but what other Ambers do you prefer over Amber Sultan?

    Ambre Sultan for me. I think I'm the only person on basenotes who doesn't like Chergui, though. I re-tried it just yesterday, but nope, still don't like it.

    Me too.. I do not believe that it is a top fragrance.. It is quite interesting, but while it has completely dried, turns on me a very strong smell, something like powder or musk..

    Try it on your skin to be sure.

    Chergui, but you can't go wrong with either, imo.

    We are 2.. I don't like the "carambar" note i get on my skin, it badly reminds me "Le MÔle". And i found the same deranging note in Fourreau noir wich by extension i don't like too (but prefer Chergui).

    Default Re: Between two Titans - Ambre Sultan vs Chergui

    I'm starting to really love Ambre Sultan.
    I wore it yesterday, huge sillage (had 1 compliment) and today i'm wearing another perfume (since this morning) and now i can smell again Ambre sultan! My skin releases Ambre sultan on another perfume the next day.
    And i just dabbed it with the bell jar cap, i think this one is much better dabbed than sprayed on me... AS is a real titan :-)

    Chergui for me, a sweet warm fireplace scent! My first niche evokes memories.

    I would choose vintage Chergui instantly over Ambre Sultan. Its new version is significantly inferior, though, so I would spray Ambre Sultan. But I don't know what they might have done to the latter...
