Reviews of Opus II

Lovely lavender, unusual presence of wormwood, nice warm amber-wood-spice characteristic, bright florals nicely blended in (jasmine, rose, patchouli); similar to Dia Man also by Amouage; wearable for both genders.

I just triple checked my sample to make sure we are talking about the same scent....but it says II

This is one of the better ozone scents I've smelled. The lavender is there, but it's light floral and a little soapy and the ozone note is clear. I think it smells like laundry and new computer. I keep waiting for a better spice and drydown, but I just get fresh and not much else after an hour.

A pleasant woody, spicy, amber reinforced by a quality (but recessive) frankincense note in a non-distinctive fougere structure: If you think that’s worth $350, go for it. Me… I’ll pass…

Light citrus and woods with amber. Of course it has that trademark frankincense of Amouage. Nothing spectacular. But nicely done. 7/10

The tart/bitter/sour/tangy/green/herby opening brings to mind Yatagan, but much more laid back and smooth-also makes me think of and associate to the spicy/sweet opening and general feel of Ungaro I-also brings to mind Quorum/Tsar/Invasion Barbare-right off the bat this smells like something I would love to wear often-to the workplace for sure-has that Amouage quality , but very Westernized and friendly-not really feeling Oriental, but I like that there is variety in this house-has the classic lavender touch-in Amouage terms this reminds me of Reflection Man slightly flavored with Dia Man-not a skin scent, but does sit closer than a lot of others from this house-just the right touches of sweet and spicy-also just the right touch of flowers without becoming too flowery-dries to a nice resiny wood with just a little bit of incense smokiness-still retains that Westernized fougere quality without becoming overly Oriental-like this a lot-

Genre: Woody Oriental

Pink peppercorn and tart citrus notes dominate Opus II’s opening, soon underpinned by jasmine, cinnamon, lavender, and a very well-balanced amber. The signature Amouage frankincense note is also on conspicuous display – far more so than in companion scent Opus I. The result is a well-crafted but conventional spiced woody oriental motif, safely within the bounds of Amouage’s established souk-meets-salon style. While by no means identical, Opus II follows a path that’s closely parallel to this house’s earlier Reflection Man, from the brazen pink peppercorn top notes, through the frankincense and spiced amber heart, to the cedar, musk, and patchouli drydown.

I’ve enjoyed several of Amouage’s scents over the years, not least Dia Man, Homage, Tribute, and Jubilation XXV, but with something on the order of ten releases in twelve months, I fear the house risks overstuffing its line and diluting its creative capital. The first two in the Library Series certainly don’t seem too distinguished in style from earlier introductions, and mark no particular advance in quality. And, by the way, what’s up with those butt-ugly Library Series bottles?
