    Cool Best Amber Fragrance for Men

    I am trying to find a great amber fragrance. I tried Ambre Sultan, which was ok once you get past off the bitter Italian herbs. Ambre Fetiche was very nice with the iris absolute and francincense, but I cannot find it anywhere. There is another one I tried from Profumnum called Ambre Aurea that was pretty spectacular but it was pricey! Of the ones I tried I think I like Ambre Fetiche the best. Any other suggestions of amber scents I can try that are similar in composition and not too sweet?

    I just sampled this one today. OK, I am officially a believer lol. Ambre 114 is the best amber fragrance I have ever smelled. It is a rich, buttery,decadent Amber. It's so decadent, it seems like I can taste it. My bottle will be with me on Monday.

    Ambre Precieux & 114 are great for pretty straight up renditions.

    LADDM & Opus VI are also both excellent and very original - actually modern classic territory for me - in the way amber is incorporated into more complex compositions.

    You should try Bond no 9 Harrods Amber. It's not too ambery, but it's nice and smooth. My SOTD as well. Great projection & longevity.

    I don't know about best but two amber scents I really love are -

    Prada Amber Pour Homme Intense and Baldessarini Ambre!

    Jaguar Classic Amber is not to bad either if you need to find a good smelling amber fragrance for cheap.

    Try Prada Amber - clean, daily scent or Baldessarini Ambre - more of night out or romantic evening occasion type of scent.

    HdP Amber 114 is quite soft and a little feminin for me. It smells good, of course. I like Amouage Opus VI, Montale Blue Amber, PdE Ambre Russe.

    Apart from Prada Amber and, as a strictly personal preference, not necessarily a recommendation, Ambre Sultan, also Cerutti 1881 Amber, the amber notes in Aazzaro pour homme (granted, a leathery lavender fougere, but, at least to my nose, pleasantly pronounced on the amber).

    You've gotten good advice about the three you should try after Ambre Sultan: Ambre 114, Ambre Precieux, and Profumum Ambre Aurea. These are the best.

    Amber Absolute. Big hunk o wood with incense and vanilla. Big bold Amber.

    I love Ambre Sultan and also followed the suggestion to test the absolutely hyped ambre 114 and Ambre precieux and hated both.
    I love Ambre Fetiche. I really like Amber Absolute. And I love an Amber scent that gets little attention here, which is 1942 ambre nobile. Herbal incense amber.

    Hunt for the Ambre Fetiche and if it remains elusive go with the Profumum and try not to think about the price!

    Balenciaga pH - deep amber and patchouli with incense and a light red fruit. I usually can't wear incense OR fruit, but somehow the balance here is impeccable and I dig it. Super potent too.

    Opus Oils Heavy Sugar - not that different from the drydown of Balenciaga, but deeper and more animalic. Don't let the name fool you, the balsamic accords are not particularly sweet.

    Amber Nuit . The amber that made me rethink my aversion to amber. Amber absolute, Armani amber soie, blue amber and whole host of others did not come close.

    I was surprised at how nice Prada pour Homme Amber Intensa was. Not bad at all. Vintage M7 is always a winner, IMO.

    Something that may surprise you with its power and complexity is Ambre Noir by Sonoma Scent Studio.

    In my mind at least, it has to be Ambre Precieux by MPG. This stuff is in my top 5 all time.

    Definitely try Ambra Nera by Farmacia Ss. Annunziata - a heavenly amber without being an overly sweet cliche...

    Yeah, that.

    The Prada doesn't smell much like Amber to me, and is unpleasant to my nose.

    Ambre Precieux is a fine product. So is Ambre Narguile, which is my favorite of all that's been mentioned -- to me it smells like pure cinnamon, but that's a great smell.
    Current Top Five:

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
    2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    5. Creed Original Vetiver

    Le Sourire de Diable by L'Antichambre is my favorite amber fragrance at this time. It is wicked good. Notes are: Bergamot, ginger, cumin, amber, agarwood, cistus, cedar. It is available at Luckyscent.

    Dior Amber and Amber Extreme???? anyone heard of these before?

    Default Re: Best Amber Fragrance for Men

    For me, TF's Amber Absolute is the holy grail.
    Perfumerie Generale's L'Ombre Fauve comes in second and is get props for its uniqueness.
    Third is Ambre Sultan, which I love, but not for the first 30 mins or so.

    Not totally sold on Ambre 114 -- I don't dislike it, but I find it a bit flat in comparison to the above. Intrigued by, but still undecided on, Les Nereides Imperial Opoponax. Fairly neutral on Kilian's Amber Oud.

    Somewhat disappointed by Parfum d'Empire's Ambre Russe and L'Artisan's Ambre Extreme.

    Bond's New York Amber doesn't work for me at all. I love the initial amber opening, but then the rose, saffron, and oud all amsh into one another and turn it into chemical floor cleaner on me.

    For designer: Prada Amber Intense doesn't little for me and feels like it's missing something critical. I'm currently taking Estée Lauder's Youth Dew Amber Nude for a spin, but it's a little too balmy / heady thus far.

    Some cheapies:
    Amo Sorel's Solinotes Ambre is really quite good for a cheapy (got it for $5 on sale).
    Auric Blend's Amber smells great out of the bottle, but is gone within an hour.

    I wish I could get my hands on Zara's Amber from a few years ago.

    If it's not obvious, I'm kind of an amber nut.

    I know Ambre 114 is tre popular among amber lovers. It certainly is a healthy dose of amber but I always found it a little shrill. By Kilian Amber Oud is my pick for amber and I'll admit I'm not an amber nut.

    @ Hawk: Yeah. The Dior (I'm assuming) is Ambre Nuit and (again, assuming) Amber Extreme is L'Artisan's Ambre Extreme. I could be wrong, though.
