    Default Amber Absolute

    Hello,

    I tried amber absolute by tom ford today for the first time and right from the
    Time I first applied it, to now (2 hours later) all I could think of was how similar
    This was to interlude man by amouage !

    Anyone share this view ?

    Regards.

    AA is in my top 10
    Interlude is the 2nd worst niche I have tried behind Rien..

    I get no comparisons at all between the 2-except they both lasts all day and then some..

    No similarity IMO. I think you'd be surprised at how different they are if you did a side by side.
    Current Top Ten:
    1) Polo Crest
    2) Chypre Palatin
    3) 34 Boulevard Saint Germain
    4) One Man Show Gold Edition
    5) Kouros (Vintage)
    6) Mamluk
    7) Tobacco Vanille
    8) Interlude Man
    9) More than Words
    10) Ungaro II (Vintage)

    Completely different -- aside from volume, no similarities at all to my nose (I own both).

    I don't get any similarity in these two either.

    As an aside, Tony T you hate Interlude that much?!

    Having tried both - different to me also.

    Very different to me. They are both very strong, deep, rich, and long lasting. Otherwise, they are substantially different. Give it a couple wearings and then wear Interlude Man along side it.

    I don't get it either. Amber is a bit player in Interlude

    Own and love both. Seem different enough to me. Perform very similarly.

    I think rein is amazing though. Interlude is good, but way to powerful and I'm the type to douse myself in a frag.

    Incredibly different. Interlude makes me gag. AA is probably the best ever from the TF line.

    AA is one of my favorite amber fragrances. Interlude is one of my least favorite from Amouage and I see no similarities apart from the fact that they are both strong...
