About Opus VI

Opus VI fragrance notes

Reviews of Opus VI

Stunning. This is Soapy Spicy Amber.
Amouage have some of my fave Scents now.

Although this is fairly similar to Journey, for me Journey is the more spicy stronger better scent.
Not taking away anything Opus V1 is another Masterpiece, only beaten by Journey. Just in my opinion.

Scent. 8.9
Longevity 9.0
Sillage 7.6

Complete masterpiece.
A lot of people go for Jubilation... This is my go to Special occasion frag. Big thumbs up

Bright and soapy, spicy, yet wonderfully complex thanks to the central amber, Opus VI is truly a masterpiece.

At first, its brightness made it similar to Opus IV for me. Then, I noticed its spiciness; This alone makes it lean male for me. Finally, I understood that the central complexity is amber, a note I know and adore in S. Lutens' Ambre Sultan. With this knowledge, it became clear to me that Opus VI also is a very soapy scent, and this aspect reminds me of my favourite Journey from this house.

This is a brilliant scent, and I am certain that I will get a FB at some point.

Overwhelmingly crowded feeling scent, unlike any other scent (in or out of the Opus Library Collection, including a mention of YSL's M7).

This one has a peppery, smoky, balsamic, ambery, green, and spicy multi-personality; apparently, Opus VI was deliberately designed by perfumer Chrisopher Chong to feel emotionally discordant and uneasy; personally wouldn’t wear it as this one's vibe's don't do it for me.

Unfortunately, I have to go against the grain here: Opus VI was strong and overbearing. The sweetly animalic note was super over the top. Opus VI has so much going on that it is hard to enjoy, IMHO!!

Don't get me wrong I think it has some great qualities that makes this stand out among its counterparts, however I couldn't get past the incensey, almost [sweetly] BO smell that enveloped as the fragrance evolved.

Two fragrances Amouage Opus VI reminds me of: L'Artisan Timbuktu and also, Jubilation XXV. The difference is all have an animalic nuance, however Timbuktu's sweetly nuance is toned down a bit and Jubilation XXV's nuance comes through in the blackberry note. Both of the latter, IMHO, have down the sweet incensey thing a little better than Opus VI.

Performance: 8.5/10
Projection: 9/10
Longevity: 9/10
Silage: 8.5/10
Overall: 8 or 9 out of 10 (for pure fragrance)

(Although not a fan of this, still wanted to give an honest rating for those who do enjoy this...)

Awful! Just awful! It goes on with hardly any scent - but for some reason in sticks in your nose...it literally won't go away! After 30 minutes it has a very strong soapy smell. Another 30 minutes and it settles down a bit - the trademarked incense scent that amouage is famous for shows its face....then it all goes downhill.

2 hours in and it settles down to a very powdery amber / woody scent. This is where it fails in my opinion. It never changes. No dry down, no complex interplay of scents. Just a powdery amber blast that bizarrely gets stronger the longer the fragrance is worn. It's insane and it never lets up - it just keeps getting stronger!!

This is the 3rd time I've worn it and I sprayed it on my hand 8 hours ago and it's stronger now than when I first sprayed it! What the heck?!? The unchanging notes make the fragrance very, very cloying...it reminds me so much of "black Orchid" - another fragrance I can't stand because of the droning quality and overpowering note. No matter how good something smells - if it doesn't change over 12+ hours then it is going to make you feel sick and give you a headache.

I imagine this fragrance would smell amazing if you just caught a whiff of someone wearing it - if they brushed past you and you got the slightest hint of it. But to wear this all day?!?! Or even worse, to be working alongside someone who was wearing this!!! No. Just no.

There are so many better amouage fragrances - Reflection, Jubilation, Beloved or Dia. Each of these are far more complex and the dry down constantly evolves so you don't get a headache.

If you own a bottle of this, please...PLEASE only just use one spray of it under your shirt - anymore would be truely disgusting! Avoid this like the plague.
