    Voted for the Prada, but I'd really rather have lifetime supplies of Gucci Pour Homme and Gaultier 2. And whoever said Musc Ravageur, I second that.

    From your list, i'll go for Ambre 114 and Ambre sultan

    other great contenders that many have already mentioned are Ambre Précieux, Versilia Vintage - Ambra Mediterranea by Profumi del Forte and L'Air du Desert Marocain

    Also, Black Amber by Agonist is interesting as well

    Hey guys. Thanks everyone for responding.
    I already own Prada Amber Intense. I have tried Ambre Sultan and was looking to purchase it soon. But looks like I have to try a couple other ambers before buying one.
    Also, sorry for not adding Ambre Preciuex to the list. Didn't realize its so good and so popular.
    But, which of these is the best compliment getter? I'm assuming the more gourmandish a fragrance is, the more attractive it is to the ladies. (for a mature 23 year old)
    Anyways, thanks again for welcoming me on Basenotes!
    And I must say the frag community is pretty darn active and prompt. I didn't expect the number of responses in just about a day!

    ...it's supposed to be a 200ml bottle in a silk cover (against the influence of light I guess) bought three/four years ago.

    The only amber fragrances that I get compliments with are Bond No. 9 New York Amber and LDDM. Big compliment getters. None of the other ones really.

    Good Luck

    Having tried them all, and many many more (major Amber fan here), Amber Absolute is BY FAR my favorite. Perfumerie Generale's L'Ombre Fauve follows it, then Ambre Sultan. Ambre 114 is decent enough, and is probably the closest smelling to actual amber itself (which has a slightly rubbery aspect to it), but it's just too bland and sits too low on me to even compete with Absolute, Fauve, and Sultan.

    Opus VI is great, but isn't it incense scent?

    I based it strictly on the one I liked, which is the only reason you should wear any of them.

    Ambre Sultan

    for me, ambre sultan and ambre 114 are two sides of the same coin.

    Mi vote is for Ambre Nuit although in projection and longevity, other proposals mentiones in the poll win by many goals.

    So many good ones. But the Sultan from Uncle Serge is my personal favorite. I have Opus VI coming and hear that is quite a scent. So far Ambre Preciex by MPG is a shade behind my front runner.
