    I have a sample of Chergui, have tested Amber Narguille, and own Amber Absolute. So I suppose I have to vote for AA. That being said I just blind bought a bottle of LDDM, arriving this week. Here's hoping I don't regret it!

    I own all four and they are all excellent fragrances; I wouldn't want to be without any of them, but if I had to save one, it would be Ambre Narguile (today!)

    I love every one of them, but amber absolute works better on my skin. L'air smells great but doesn't have a good relation with my skin (it stays very close), chergui and ambre narguile are great smells but their performance is mediocre.
    ... And do me a favor - don't disturb my friend. He's dead tired.

    They're all great frags, but Chergui is the one for me that smells great "effortlessly." It's smooth, complex, not overly harsh, sweet or powdery and blends well with my skin chemistry.

    I would go for LDDM but since Amber Absolute is discontinued, go get the Amber Absolute then the LDDM later. =)

    They're all very good but very different.

    I prefer L'Air Du Desert Marocain out of the lot.

    But only because the medley of notes in its complexity appeals to me. Chergui and Ambre Narguile are complex as well but on the sweeter side. Amber Absolute is an excellent smoky amber.

    I just received my bottle of LDDM and I am blown away, I'll need to give it a full wearing to see if it tops AA for me, but I can say sofar LDDM is proving much more dynamic and layered. Beautiful.

    I'd rank them this way:

    1. Amber Absolute
    2. L'Air du Desert Marocain
    3. Ambre Narguile
    4. Chergui

    I like all four, though.
    Current Top Five:
    1. Bois des Iles--Chanel
    2. George Sand--Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier
    3. L'Ame Soeur--Divine
    4. Violet Blonde--Tom Ford
    5. Santal Blush--Tom Ford

    I must be breaking a basenotes law, but I really don't like the Tauer. Also, AA is repulsive to me, it has nothing going for it other than in your face resinous amber (a personal thing, but I just can't do it.) Cherugi is something I have to be in the mood for, which isn't often. Ambre Narguile gets my vote by a lightyear.

    Default Re: POLL:amber absolute vs. chergui vs. ambre narguile vs. tauer l'air du desert marocain

    Amber...follow closely by Chergui. But after that the other two fall into an volcano. l'air du desert marocain STINKS and Absolute is not far behind.

    And I have tested all 4. Have about 50ML' decants of AN, 30ML of Absolute, 20ML of Chergui and 10 ML of l'Air du Desert

    1.LDDM
    2. AA
    3. AN
    4. Chergui

    I like the first three, dislike Chergui. I'm actually wearing Amber Absolute right now and was just thinking how nice it is. A really solid, great scent for fall and winter.

    I voted for the Tauer, as that is the one I would choose to have a bottle of now. Chergui would be my second choice. I've tried them all. I fiind AA to be a simple, overpriced amber, and AN smells like a scented Christmas spice candle to me - pleasant, but not particularly interesting.

    I own LDDM and Chergui. The other 2 I haven't sampled. LDDM is much more "masculine" to my nose. Chergui is quite nice but leans feminine to my nose...smells beautifull on my wife though...Im gonna try Chergui again after a few weeks I heard when you come back to it you fall in love with it...
