Reviews of Memoir Man

Reminds me of Bentley Intense mixed with cinnamon and vanilla. Has a spicy-rose candle feel. Feels warm and cozy for cold weather. Probably fine worn dressed up or casually but it’s very nice, seems more formal.

Above average projection but not nuclear. Lasts all day long and seems fairly linear.

The vintage version is brilliant. Amouage dared to release an anti-oriental that speaks less of Arabian deserts and 1001 nights than of casting runestones and burning bittergreen herbs to the mumbling of stave rhymed incantations under an ashen Icelandic sky. That bittergeen punch of minty green wormwood contitutes a formidable and memorable opening, more restrained than Josh Lobb would have it, but still with quite some punch. Ashy incense and wood emerge from the Nordic brushwork, brooding and craggy, unhospitable but of sublime beauty like a landscape of fjords and stony peaks. A good one for cool, moody days by the grey, windswept sea.

The watering down of Memoir Man in its current incarnation utterly destroys this marvelous effect and turns Thor into a weekend LARP-jerk.

I bought a sample of this to try and I get the woody pine, but I didn't like it because to me it smelled more like Pine Sol or a pine air freshener than anything else. I wasnt the only one who thought that.

This smells divine. Has a medieval quality to it. A dark medieval forest. Just wish it lasted longer!!

Strong sandalwood, sawdust, incense start. Peppery. Died away after about three hours. Not quite the leathery scent I would look for.
Projection poor, longevity. Poor.
Second try, same as the first. Not memorable.

This has a beautiful manly mint tobacco opening. My friend vetiver appears before the two hour mark. It is a skin scent at 12 hours. I will use this as a winter scent. I loved this one. Female reviewer
