    Default Amber - I need a new one and soon!

    First let me say I own a bottle and adore Dior's Ambre Nuit, and I'm looking for something similar, but I wouldn't want to go much sweeter. Tonight I tried Lutens Ambre Sultan for the first time and loved it instantly, may pop on a FB . Works very well on these cool so cal evenings. I plan to pickup a decant of MPG Ambre Precieux in the near future and give that a ride around the block. Can you recommend any others in the same ballpark? I plan to sample, but get a FB before long. I feel that Diors Ambre Nuit and Lutens Ambre Sultan are very unisex, and I plan to stick to that with this future FB purchase, my better half really likes the 2 mentioned on me, as much as I enjoy them on her. Cost is certainly a determining factor these days for me, hoping to keep the price around 100 or less. Thanks friends!

    Ambre 114 by HdP
    Ambre Dore by MPG
    Ambre by Molinard

    My current fave is Cerchi Nell'aqua's Ambr'ero. Not too sweet but spicy and certainly animalic.

    +1 (fine the smaller bottle to stick closer to your price and add Ambre 114 by HdP which, with a coupon can be had for exactly $100 for the smaller bottle.

    +1 Ambre 114 by HDP it is my scent of the day.

    Here is one I am enjoying the sample that I had never tried before and it is really opening my eyes:

    Ambra Nera by Farmacia SS Annunziata. What a mouthful but a winner in my book. It will be FBW next year. I do agree Ambre Sultan is my personal favorite at the moment.

    Yes, if you liked Ambre Sultan this will blow you away.

    I have heard good things about this one. I think it's Jack Hunter's favorite also. I have also heard this is a patchouli monster in conjunction with the Amber is that true?

    Waiting on a bottle of Ambre Precieux. I received a bottle of Ambre Russe last week. This stuff is great. If you want a different take on Ambre, this is it.

    MPeG Ambre Preciaux. Look no further. I didn't even like amber scents until I tried this one.

    Not a patch monster in the slightest, it's a herbal feast with a nuclear amber. Like AS on acid.

    Well that's very compelling. Essenza Nobile has that one I think and I am sure it's cheaper than buying stateside.

    My favorite amber fragrance is Sonoma Scent Studio's Winter Woods. Although it's not as straight forward, in your face as the others you described...Winter Woods is absolutely out of this world.

    Just at $100 for 50 ml. Worth a test drive.

    Ambre Precieux, after all these years, is still my go-to amber. With that said, if you like your amber bombastic and enriched by a massive dry-woody base, Ambra Mediterranea is unbeatable. Be aware though that if compared to Ambre Sultan, AM is COMPLETLEY in another direction. The I Profumi Del Forte is loud, sweet-and-dry with a think woody-resinous base while the Lutens is basically herbal and balmy. HDP Ambre 114 is another top notch IMO.

    I just did this search. I'm still in process, but it did lead me to L'Occitane's Eau de Baux which retails for $52 and is quite a favorite around BN and is NOT discontinued, still in the stores.

    +1 Ambre Sultan
    +1 Ambre Precieux

    Also, while not amber (it is ambergis not amber if that matters), Versilia Vintage is pretty nice and worth checking out.


    If you are looking for a nice cheap amber, but smells as good as the high-end stuff, these are good:
    Dolce & Gabanna - The One
    Baldessarini - Ambre Baldessarini

    Well I pulled the trigger on a bottle of Ambre Sultan. For $60 shipped, whats the worst that can happen besides enjoying it.

    And I really appreciate the suggestions! Some of them I know of, some I havent sampled yet.

    Im enjoying Ambre Fetiche by Annick Goutal and PdE Ambre Russe. Both great and different. Of the two, I would recommend AF if you like Ambre Sultan. Enjoy!

    I know this one gets a lot of criticism due to spotty performance, and although its not niche, D&G's The One has plenty of amber, is not too sweet, and can be found for around $50.
