Ok, I've just noticed about a million amber frag threads. Sorry!
For Sale: Gengis Kahn, Mona d' Orio, Penhaligons.
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.
Amber comes in different flavors so you have to choose
Halston Man Amber (Unsweet Amber)
Amber Sultan - Serge Lutens (Spicy Amber)
Ambre Russe Parfum d`Empire (Boozy Amber)
Montale Blue Amber (Sweet and powdery Amber)
Prada Amber Intense (Soapy Amber)
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.
Royal Amber by Micallef is one I like a lot.
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.

I have to check out Ambra Mediterranea. I've heard so many good things about it.
„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.
Bn9 New York Amber is my favorite.
