I am an American living and working in Oman, and I have been following Amouage since it was a tiny little enterprise run out of what appeared to be someone's garage. Lyric is and has been a revelation to me, and I find Memoir quite amazing as well.
That being said, I find Silver very strange, and I almost regretting buying it now (why I bought a bottle when I could merely have taken 5 or 6 samples to try is anyone's guess
). I used it yesterday, spraying it three times on my chest...nowhere else. Though I had tried it on my wrist in the boutique before buying, and found it alluring, this time the smell was overpowering and almost soapy (I'm new to this, so forgive me if I use words that are rather generic).
After reading this thread, I realize I should have only used one spray at most, but I still find the florals to overshadow everything else. The smell is like powder and soap mixed together with an explosion of frankincense, and I detected none of the bergamot, orange blossom or mandarin.
Am I doing something wrong, or is Silver simply over-the-top and a fragrance one must use with great care and sparingly?
