A few said something about synthetic's. Show me someone that doesn't use them in EDP... Go ahead I'll wait.
"less luxurious"??? Are we smelling the same EDP here???? Interlude has a multitude of things going on. Not any of them are cheap or crap.
I bought mine straight from Amouage. Might I ask if the negative people bought from the same???
People, this is a fantastic scent and I highly doubt anyone that actually bought the bottle would think otherwise.
Granted I like certain style's like Epic and Interlude. I hate Any of the other EDP they put out, but in my world this is an easy blind buy.
Well, that's your opinion and you're welcome to it...
With regards to synthetics, I don't think anyone was criticising the use of synthetics as most fragrances incorporate synthetics to a certain degree. So, no problem there. The issues I have with it are the following:
1) It betrays Amouage's olfactory identity (as did the Honour duo).
2) The synthetic aspect is more evident than in most of their previous releases and, to some extent, rather jarring at times.
Yes, back in the early 2000s, Amouage released a lot of synthetic duds before getting their act together with the Jubilation duo. However, since the Memoirs, they've dropped the ball yet again (with the exception of the first four Opuses).
Their last seven or so releases have been disappointing to say the least. For me, that's definitely a cause for concern.
