    Genre: Floral

    Ubar is an animalic floral scent with incense, built on the same titanic scale and in the same ornate style as Amouage’s original Gold and Gold Men. In fact, it explores territory so similar to its older siblings that I at first wondered if it was really necessary. Ubar resembles Gold (either one) most in its opening, with indolic floral notes, frankincense, and civet all present and accounted for. A few minutes on, and Ubar begins along its own path, with cooler, fresher jasmine and bergamot notes, a sandalwood so creamy it evokes coconut (you can find something like this in Frederic Malle’s Carnal Flower, too), and a deliciously smoky vanilla. It has less of Gold’s honey and spices, and the frankincense note remains farther in the background, ceding the stage more completely to the white flowers.

    What I think distinguishes Ubar most though, is a powerful green muguet accord. This crisp, cheerful spring flower lends Ubar a certain buoyancy and brightness not found in Gold, Lyric, or indeed any other of the Amouage floral scents. While it may be named for a lost Arabian city, Ubar is, along with Ciel and the two Reflection scents, among the least desert-bound of the house’s offerings.

    I have no problem detecting Ubar at a distance, and it seems to linger forever on the skin. I suppose it may be less potent than Gold, but given Gold’s atomic power, I find Ubar’s projection more than adequate. Considering Amouage’s big floral scents, I’d probably go with either Gold or Ubar, not both, especially given the cost. While the two are certainly distinct, they could easily occupy a similar position in the wardrobe. And really, how often do you have occasion to wear something this big and opulent?

    Look at the cast of any of the Bravo housewives at a post-season reunion. Consider the degree of wardrobe, hair, make-up and custom-spanx before your eyes. What is the difference between this execution of gender and drag? Physiological sex distinctions seem minor. The issue is the extremity of the presentation.  If what you see on those reunion shows isn't drag, I'm not sure what is. 

    Smack in the center of the above gender question lies Ubar. Again, the issue is the extremity of the presentation. Ubar doesn't care a whit about what your crotch might hide. Ubar is all eyelashes, nails and bling. Drag or television-femininity, the similarity is hypergender and the differences are unimportant. 

    (Is it me, or does Andy Cohen not come off like a court eunuch sitting in the midst of all that regalia?)

    This is a scent blanket, made of mink. It feels like pure luxury. To be honest, I can't detect any single notes, except that it is very animalic. The blending is superb, yes it is floral in nature, in that rich way of the Camelia blossom, though it doesn't smell of camelias. Truly a beautiful fragrance to be treasured.

    Classic perfumery heaven

    Blind buying is risky business, but with this one it was a bulls eye for me. Kinda could have guessed from the notes, but you never know..

    Very feminine Id say, in your face floral with a civet linguering beneath.

    Very sweet at first spray but the sweetness mellows pretty fast. I get something my nose read as moss in the drydown even if I didnt see moss listed.

    Lasts a good 8 hrs on me, and on clothes it really clings for weeks.

    There is a vintage and a reformulated Ubar this review is for both

    Vintage vs New Ubar: REFORMULATED opened with a blast of citrus and amber mixed with "white floral" VINTAGE was mostly Sandalwood and white floral. I got amber and sandalwood slowly creeping in from the current, and honestly, within 15min, they both smelled very similar. They both warmed up with vanilla, which was not overpowered by a slight vetiver green accompaniment. One problem I have with some Amouages is they turn too "powdery" for my nose. These did not. The civit and amber kept things sharp and the Lily of the Valley was balanced by sweetness that came across as honey to my nose, but was probably vanilla bean.

    Middle-eastern aesthetic and interesting name aside, Ubar is none other than a trashy-fruity floral. But where most other fragrances in this vein are done on the cheap, Ubar is of exceptional quality, suggesting that this dreaded genre can, in truth, be wonderful.
