    Amber is one of those ingredients that is different in each type of fragrance. Unlike "Jasmine" or "Rose" where you can identify the scent, "amber" is different in each fragrance. I dislike most amber themed fragrances, but New York Amber is one of my all time favorite scents, so go figure...

    Two of the best still remain, in my opinion, Ambre Sultan and Prada Amber.

    My favorite Amber fragrances are:

    Armani Prive - Ambre Orient
    Tom Ford - Amber Absolute
    Bond No. 9 - New York Amber
    Histoiries de Parfumes - Ambre 114
    SL - Ambre Sultan
    D&G - The One
    Profumi del Forte - Versilia Vintage Ambra Mediterranea


    There are a lot of other good ones, but these are my favorites.

    Thanks for all the responses. I've tried Ambre Sultan and Ambre Russ. I've also sampled Atelier's Ambre Nue which is lovely.

    Does anyone know anyone who has Ambra Mediterrenea that might be able to send me a sample? This sounds exactly what I'm after: amber with some woodiness to it.

    I really like Ambre Precieux and Ambre 114. They're similar, but AP is a little louder, spicier, and more opulent. A114 is subtler and less dense. Both are excellent.

    TF Amber Absolute is very good, and very sweet. A little goes a long way. It lasts on my skin all day and projects very strong.

    Some amber fragrances that I like - I don't normally like amber fragrances because they are normally too sweet, but these are good:

    Aftelier Parfums Amber
    Historie De Parfums 1725 Casanova
    Dior Ambre Nuit

    I agree. All I get is soap.

    For the OP, give Amber Oud from by Kilian a try.

    „Ambre” by Réminiscence is not mentioned yet; dry and soapy.

    Ambre Sultan has the true amber in it. It is real. It is The Sultan.
