  • Summary: Ambre Sultan is my first Serge Lutens; a very warm and exotic scent. Top: amber and spices (oregano and bay in particular, how interesting! Slightly foody) Middle: amber and sandalwood (dense, robust, maybe a hint of play dough in a pleasant way) Base: amber and vanilla (after the exotic spicy first course Christopher Sheldrake serves us desert to finish with) Throughout the whole development there are more resins and myrrh detected, adding a rich smokey quality.

The Sultan's Amber

MasterLi, parfumo.net
30 January 2014
  • Summary: This is a superb scent. My first impressions upon sampling was a very herbal, medicinal vibe which immediately hit me upon application. However this is not a bad thing, as it gradually settled into a very warm and aromatic herbal dry down. I think this scent is very very well made and it reminds me of incense and herbs (but not in an overwhelming way), just in a really well blended sense. Depending on your tastes.

Gentle Sultan

Tar, parfumo.net

  • Summary: I have tried a lot of ambery fragrances in the near past, and there are really outstanding among them. AMBRE SULTAN is also outstanding. Perky Ambre Nera, shining Fiore d'Ambra, dark brown Ambre Nue, desert-dry Ambra by Etro, oriental and lush Affaf... I really like them. AMBRE SULTAN gives something else. It is dry, earthy, dusty indeed, with a lot of patchouly.

  • Summary: Tanned skin, unruly hair, bare feet on some cracked, red earth, something nomadic and very very attractive. On my skin, Ambre Sultan is more leather than amber and that's why more wearable than many fragrances from this house. (I find their dried fruits a bit too sweet and overwhelming) It opens with herbal notes that some of us may find medicinal, but I love it as much as the spicy vicks-like note that joins in later.

Sounds perfect but surprisingly leaves me wanting more...

Fpih, parfumo.net

  • Summary: Ambre Sultan is the first fragrance that anyone will recommend to a lover of amber fragrances as a must. It's described as spicy, resinous, dark, heady and rich and all that with amber's underlying warmth binding every note together. Considering the fact that I like warm, oriental, spicy ambers, this sounded like HG to my ears.

Antidote for a cold spring day

Funwon, parfumo.net
15 May 2013
  • Summary: We've had a very long and very cool spring this year (2014). It's now May and 48 degrees today with a forecast of snow for tomorrow. My heart cried out for Ambre Sultan. It's dry warm spices and lingering amber warm even the damp air. It is a noble antidote to these strange days. I feel fortified and calmed by it's stalwart longevity. A grand fragrance and a wardrobe classic. I recommend it for men and women.

  • Summary: Ambre Sultan is a smoky amber on me. When I wear this, I am transported to the deep woods on a dewy, overcast fall morning. The morning air smells sweet as I trudge over wet foliage, trees are starting to get heavy with sap, and there is a detectable smell of smoky, charred wood from a campfire from the night before. This is like a memory for me. Being female, the strong blast of fragrance right away is a little too much for me (feels quite masculine).

  • Summary: Ambre Sultan is a gourmand amber full of spices. A unisex fragrance, but IMO Ambre Sultan leans more toward the masculine. LM Ambre Passion is very similar but more powdery and feminine.

  • Summary: When this wa released, together with Rose de Nuit in, I think, 1993 there weren't many upscale ambers around, but I was still familiar to the concept of amber through oils and incenses from oriental shops and loved those smells. I first read about it in french Vogue describing it as a perfume for kings. I was immediately obsessed with the idea of it. The extreme orientalism and the timeless, luxurious-looking bottle.
