    Default Tom Ford Amber Absolute vs Noir de Noir

    Okay, so I'm trying to decide between Amber Absolute and Noir de Noir. I love sweet, rich, deep, dark fragrances that could really swing either way. I like both of these and have read about both of these and I honestly can't decide which one to get, SO I'm gonna ask you guys. If you had to only wear one of these fragrances and could never wear the other again, which would you choose?

    I would go with Amber Absolute. I don't wear it that often, but I'm glad I own an older bottle. I haven't tried the re-release.

    I like Noir De Noir, I've just never felt I needed to own it.

    Of the two, the former.

    Noir de Noir feels more unique to me. There are lots of other ambers, some of which I prefer to Amber absolute

    Both are worth owning. If to choose one I recommend an early release bottle of Noir de Noir otherwise go for the Amber Absolute.

    Like both, but would go with Noir De Noir. A little more versatile IMO.

    Though I really like Noir De Noir it would be Amber Absolute no contest.

    Another vote for Noir de Noir, although both would qualify for a very close competition and garner almost equally high rankings

    One would put off some people in a crowd, and one wouldn't.

    I personally much prefer Amber Absolute, though from your description maybe NdN would be closer to what you're looking for?
