Reviews of Interlude Man

Wow. You're either going to fall in love with Interlude or you're going to hate it. It's got some odd notes that seem to be battling it out with the traditional Amouage formula. The opening was absolutely dreadful, with a strong oregano paired with bergamot that is shortly beaten back by a loud and sour amber. The middle incense is overwhelmed by opoponax and cistus which all lay on top of a dirty patchouli-oud base. I kept waiting for Interlude to settle into something enjoyable but it never happened. Add that to beastly projection and calendar like longevity and you've got your money's worth. Not something I'll ever wear, so it's a thumbs down here.

Although they have different notes, it reminds me of A*Man, one of my least favourite fragrances. Not for me.

Strong, middle eastern promise!! Personally I love it but will not be for everyone. Not a crowd pleaser. Beast mode!!

I am no expert at writing reviews on cologne. As I'm sure many of you are, but this is my honest review.

This juice is amazing. I am still getting whiffs throughout the day of this, and people at work are asking me about it. (In a positive way).
Here is my simplistic explanation of Interlude Man. It starts off very sweet, like candy, you just want to eat it, and soon afterwards, (about an hour or 2), It dries into a Beautiful smoke/incense smell. Very masculine and safe to wear at work. It lasts a good 5-6 hours with good projection.
I can't see any designer pulling this off, but maybe I'm wrong.
Worth the $$.

Such a powerful, masculine scent with exemplary performance, sillage and longevity. Amouage 'Interlude' is easily one of, if not the most dominating fragrances I have ever encountered.

The smell reminds me of Antonio Puig's 'Quorum', a powerhouse with superb strength in its own right. Tobacco, greens, incense, patchouli, leather. 'Interlude' adds cumin, allspice, oud and woods to this mix, plus nuclear projection and sillage.

The initial blast is bergamot and spices, incense and a hint of amber. Its very strong, projects a good five feet out and lingers everywhere. The middle notes of incense and some patchouli come out slowly over the next few hours and settle in beautifully. It almost has a marijuana note at some points, which depending on your tastes, smells great or is too herbal, ethnic and off-putting.

The base of tobacco, leather, greens and oud are present throughout, but really begin to shine about four hours in. This is where the fragrance really becomes a masterpiece, with uncompromising masculinity and smokiness carrying on for what seems an eternity. A classy, deep, dark and mysterious smell, akin to upscale Middle Eastern boutiques in someplace like Dubai or Istanbul.

Longevity with just six sprays (neck, shoulders, and wrists) was 16-20+ hours, with massive projection and sillage all the way through. My girlfriend asked if I just sprayed some cologne on when I walked in the door coming home from work. I was shocked, because I sprayed this stuff on 14 hours ago that morning and it still smelled fresh to her! And it keep projecting all night long. You literally have to wash this off to get it off you. It 'becomes' you.

I find it to be funny when people say only 'one or two' sprays, then complain about the performance or lack of compliments from fragrances. With 'Interlude', you really could only use two sprays for a date night, group setting or professional engagement and be good for six to eight hours. This stuff lasts for several weeks, if not months on clothes and fabrics.

I can definitely highly recommend this to powerhouse fragrance lovers or anyone seeking pure manliness in a bottle. The price is well worth the performance and longevity you get, as one large 100ml bottle of this should last you several years.

Initial thoughts on this juice... Incensy, Loud, Forest like, Sweet, Dark... then... wait I have smelled something like this before. Interlude man does start off amazing... incensy and very bright... As it dries I find that it becomes very familiar. I hunt through my samples and find that I do have something similar... If you layer Ore from Slumberhouse with L'Air du Desert Marocain from Tauer you get very close to Interlude man (at least the 30 minute mark of Interlude Man). When I got those samples I sprayed them both on the same arm by mistake... I would say that if you are in the market for an incensy juice this is amazing but I would TRY BEFORE YOU BUY because this might not be everyone's cup of tea. I will have to save the rest of my sample for the winter to fully enjoy this amazing juice. Enjoy!
