I am wearing Dia (Men) as my SotD today. Long story short, i love the way i smell! Dia stays close to the skin, but what opulence, what quality! It opens not with a blast, but with a rich enveloping aura of soft citrus, florals and spice (in what order i cant tell). I am over two hours into wearing and the subtle leather and patchouli have kicked in. What i love the most, experience-wise is the wafts of opulence i get anytime i move. I am looking forward to a short stint in the sun (rainy weather permitting) where i know Dia goes into overdrive. the Omanis must love this in their climate.
I also have Lyric (Men) which seems not to get good "press" here. So far, it is my best rose fragrance. Understated elegance. I appreciate why some are underwhelmed by Lyric, but i believe Amouage stayed true to the purity of the ingredients, not infusing anything that would have toned things up a bit more.
A quest of mine is to buy Amouage Gold. I love skanky scents and have no problems with "loudness". On a lighter note, Vibert's opener: “Egads! Honeyed cat pee...." in the Reviews is what sold Gold irreversibly to me (never smelt it before) as i love honey (SL's Miel de Bois) and civet. I am ready to be embraced (for the better, i hope) by the "experience".
Amouage is a House to be respected.
ointments and perfume delight the heart....
