    Default Prada Amber Pour Homme Intense vs Peruvian Amberette

    Which one would you choose?

    I will probably buy both eventually, but I will need to blind buy both since it is hard to find samples of the fragrances.
    What intrigues me of the Prada is that, from what I read, it suggests to be masculine, attractive, and romantic. As per the Peruvian Ambrette, what fascinates me is that once upon a time it was expensive and sold as a luxury fragrance, but not you can find it 50% discounted at most online retailers.

    I guess the real question is if it is worth buying Peruvian Ambrette as a blind buy for 50% off.

    Thanks in advance!

    Peruvian Ambrete is one of my favorite Zegna fragrances. Is it worth it? I don't know your tastes to answer that. Read reviews on both fragrances and threads to know what people say about them both.

    Never tried the latter, but Amber pH Intense is one of the best designer frags I've ever smelled. Glad to own a bottle, but prices have crept up in recent years which suggest it being discontinued.

    Totally different animals. The Zegna is quite unique but the Prada is easier to wear.

    I prefer the zegna but just because the Prada is pretty sweet and myrhh dominant, and I tend to like less sweetness/drier fragrances. Ambrette is a little more unusual, nonstandard too
