    Default Best Amber Fragrance for Men

    What is the best amber fragrance for men? i have tried Ambre Sultan, Ambre Fetiche, Ambre Precieux, and Ambre Aurea. AS was good once you get past the harsh dry herbs at the top. Ambre P was ok but didnt impress me much. AF is great with the iris absolute but i cant find it anywhere online. AA was pretty spectacular but it was kind of pricey. i think the best one so far is AF. Are there any other ambers I should try?

    Of the one's I've smelled, Ambre 114. It's light and airy compared to a lot of other ambers, but still manages to be warm and cozy. Great longevity as well. It just smells so good.

    From your list, with the exception of Ambre Fetiche, I like all the others. I'll also add Ambra Mediterranea by I Profumi Del Forte as one of the thickest and deepest ambers ever (but you have to be fine with "powerful" fragrances to properly appreciate it).

    Atelier ambre nui
    Mona di oreo ambra

    I have ordered a full bottle of the profumi.

    My answer would have been none of the above, as I personally prefer Les Nombres d'Or Ambre by a slight edge over Ambre 114. That said its quite close and since Ambre 114 is in the poll I voted for it.
    Current Top Favorites:
    1) Portrait of a Lady original formula (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Giorgio for Men vintage/V.I.P. for Men (Giorgio Beverly Hills)
    3) Dia Man vintage edt (Amouage)
    4)
    Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz) - tie
    4) Lalfeorosa (O'driù) - tie

    6)
    Les Nombres d'Or Vetyver (Mona di Orio)
    7) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
    8) Tzora (Anat Fritz)
    9) Javanese Patchouli (Zegna) - tie
    9) Monsieur de Givenchy vintage (Givenchy) - tie
    9) Coeur de Vetiver Sacré (L'Artisan) - tie
    9) X for Men (Clive Christian) - tie
    9) Patou pour Homme Privé (Jean Patou) - tie
    9) Oud Shamash (The Different Company) - tie

    Ambre Russe by Parfum d'Empire and Ambre Precieux are my favourites when it comes to actually wearing an amber. These are very balanced compositions. Many are too much for me.

    I love Amber Absolute, the incense notes really work for me. Can still be had on eBay.

    Although once my bottle's run out, I'll be on to Amber Sultan, if I can't find more.

    +1 on Ambre mediterranea as the most masculine amber due to woods mixing in with the amber. A very woody amber, though I do prefer Ambre 114 due to its orchestrated beauty.

    Theres some great ambres out from sweet to dry and everything in between but for a masculine one Ambre 114 is my hombre. Will have to give Ambre mediterranea a look in though...anything with Mediterrean vibe is of intrigue

    Rarely do I find myself in disagreement with the excellent nose of Alfarom but I recommend Ambre Fetiche as the perfect amber for the modern man.

    Ambre Sultan from your list.

    Otherwise the quintessential amber has to be Ambra Mediterranea. Bought it from a mere half sniff.

    114 or Sultan from the list. I also like Ambre Nuit. Overall though, my favorite is Amber Absolute.

    From the list, Amber Sultan. Sadly, i have not smelt the others except for amber Fetiche. I am surprised that Montale's Blue Amber is not on the list. A great amber with lots of depth.

    Another to be sampled is the obscure Un Air d'Arabie amber by Dorin. All that's good about amber, without sweetness.

    Every one on your poll is quite good. I voted for Ambre 114.

    However, I would suggest you try Ambre Mediterranea, TF Amber Absolute, and (in my opinion the best) Armani Prive Ambre Orient.

    And lets not forget D & G The One!

    I've never smelled Blue Amber, but I'm lead to believe Ambre 114 is similar but of a better quality.

    I like Ambra Aurea, but it is incredibly expensive and 100 ml would last several lifetimes IMO.
    I think Annick Goutal's Ambre Fetiche can still be found on beautyencounter...

    I'd also suggest L'Ombre Fauvre and perhaps sampling the less wellknown L’Ambre de Carthage by Isabey.

    Though it seems to receive little love on BN, I also like the aoudy cousin of Ambre Precieux, Ambre Dore.

    I couldn't choose between Ambre 114 and Ambre Precieux. These 2 are my favorite.

    I am a little suprised no one mentioned L'Air du Desert Marocain yet. I forgot to mention it also.

    I voted for Ambre Précieux which I really like (but I was, like dougczar, quite surprised that it took this long for L'Air du désert Marocain to get mentioned...)
