Reviews of Opus I

Brought a tear to my eye. Smells like an old friend

Stardate 20160915:

Old school oriental floral. Nicely done but nothing great or new.
Can't see myself wearing it.

Opus I is delicious, luxurious and intoxicating. A beautiful white floral/woody fragrance. At first spray I smell the ylan-ylang with the tuberose and jasmine. Then the bitter orange joins in with the woods (sandalwood, oud and vetier). It can be a bit strong, so go easy on the trigger. It lasts up to 8-10 hours on me. Masterpiece!

I don’t know… Opus I comes to me as one big glob of miscellaneous fragrance. Yes, it’s rich – might even say “opulent,” but I don’t sense any distinct form or function to its presence – it’s a big glob of a what I have come to feel is a disagreeable aroma. As hard as I’ve tried, I can’t ascribe an identifiable persona to the fragrance. It’s like Opus I is saying “opulence is enough…” I have problems with several notes in fragrances – leathers, birch, violet, and water lily – but there is nothing in the list of ingredients of Opus I that I tend to dislike. I can’t explain my aversion to this particular smell. Opus I is quite sweet; it is not really pleasant smelling; it is strong; but mainly for me it’s 350 dollars worth of “no thank you, I prefer not”…

Now I have to go and wash this off now…

Nice way to start off the series. Before checking notes, I detected the Lily of the Valley, jasmine, ylang ylang and rose. Those seem to be the main characters in this one. Of course Amouage's trademark frankincense is in there. Creamy and smooth to perfection. I would purchase this one. 7.5/10

opens with bubble gum/white flowers accented by spicy/dark citrus/fruit-sweet/deep/rich/opulent-bordering on being over the top-enormous projection-a floral cornucopia/bouquet-very sweet-get the smell of different flower smells kind of drifting around, swirling around each other-the spice/fruit/citrus kind of just hangs in the background-a presence of wood starts making itself known-mainly a sweet flowery thing-beautiful-brings to mind flower fragrances of days gone by-smooth very well blended and rich-woody drydown with just the faintest touch of incense-barely there to me-stays sweet and flowery throughout , but gets drier, sort of arrid-very smooth and well blended-I hate to gender fragrances but this does lean more toward the feminine side-I would keep this to wearing around the house or just on the back of the hand for sniffing enjoyment...
IMHO decant/split worthy Spicy Woody Floriental
