    Question NY Amber or TF Amber Absolute

    Price aside, Bond No. 9's New York Amber or Tom Ford's Amber Absolute ... and why?

    Amber Absolute because it is beastly and thrives in the heat of summer.

    Can't comment on the direct comparison as I haven't tried the Bond, however I do like & own Amber Absolute, so can certainly endorse that scent.

    Two very different fragrances. AA is much more "ambery" and very thick at the beginning. Tones down nicely later on. NYA is more refined and complex. AA can be considered more conventional, more masculine and safer for a blind buy. Still, wouldn't make much sense to buy either one without testing first.

    I prefered Amber Absolute. Very potent opening. Test first of course.

    NY Amber is the only one that I have experience with and it's quite strong and potent itself.
