    There are so many different kinds. Ambre Sultan is a very good one though.

    Not calling it the best but one I enjoy - Ambre Precieux - Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier

    Whilst obviously the contain prominent amber notes, I think LDDM, Tango and Opus VI should be removed.

    Ambre Nuit. ASAQ oils are also superb.

    Should just mention the Ambre Nuit for 2015 is more of a rose fragrance.

    From this list, Ambre Sultan. Also, had very good experiences with another fragrance not on the list so far, namely Ambre & Santal by L'Occitane.

    I don't really consider LDDM part of the ambers, as there's so much other stuff going on with it, but it's my favorite among your choices.

    But I voted 114, which I consider a true Amber and the best around.

    Not that it's anywhere close to the best ever, but how would you all say Prada Amber Intense stacks up? I've heard consistently good things...

    Of the choices, I've tried 12 and owned 6, but my personal favorite is Ambra Aurea. Not saying its the best though.

    Quoi? While I'm not a big fan of LDDM or Tango, I think Opis VI has its charms - it's a very interesting take on amber, not a classical one, that's for sure, but interesting and very fun to wear nevertheless. Potent as heck, too - a little goes a very long way.

    I'm voting TF Amber Absolute. I find most ambers sort of nauseating and headache inducing. There are only a few exceptions to this, and Amber Absolute stands head and shoulders above them all. It's a brute force of a fragrance, very strong, yet remains composed and never veers into "kill mode", if you know what I mean. It's a gentle brute - massive biceps and big chest, but ready to cuddle at a moment's notice. I could never get tired of this, it's absolutely perfect.

    Agreed for Ambre & Santal by L'Occitane.
    For the poll, I selects "Ambre Precieux - Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier"

    I'm disappointed to see that Rania J's Ambre Loup has no vote. I hope it's because most here haven't tried it. I'm not an amber based fragrances fan at all but I still can say that it's an excellent one for the "style". Her line should be tested, especially the 2 best ones: Ambre Loup and Lavande 44.

    My vote would go to it (A.L.) or of course the reference, TF Amber Absolute. Versilia Vintage Ambra Mediterranea is also an excellent take on amber)

    Ambre 114
    Probably because I tried it first. Simple, and so extraordinarily good because of it.

    Ambre Nuit is a Rose and Ambergris centered fragrance. There may be hints to amber in drydown. Absolutely delicious though.
    .
    Opus VI approaches gently amber from a unique angle. Very beautiful.

    Blue Amber screeches Amber. Love it.

    Amber 114 is the one I go to, though, when I am looking for buttery amber coziness.

    Ambra Nera by Farmacia SS. Annunziata would've had my vote if listed.
    Although personally not a big fan of Mr. Ford's fragrances in general, I would have to vote for his Amber Absolute listed here. Fairly expensive, but very nice.

    I've tested many but rarely ambers reach the level of House of Matriarch Ambre Vie.

    I have not tried many of these so I voted for the Tauer. I like my ambers more in a dry direction and focused on other supporting notes. Some of my discontinued scents come to mind: The Burberrys with the blue cap. Lui Rochas (if one would call it amber) and the 2007 Bogner Man.
