    Default Help on Amouage

    Im considering to try some Amouage offerings. Considering, that I wear mostly Fougères and don't like heavy and sweet orientals, which one would you recommend I should try? Does something like a not too much oriental Amouage exist? I would like to have a heavy dose of this famous silver frankincense and would rather not have a cloying amber laden drydown. And vanilla is a no go. So which one?

    Amouage Silver sounds like just what your Dr. would prescribe. Turin states that it has a chypre-like drydown, but to me it's plain and simple, Silver is a sublime fougere. There's nothing oriental about this Amouage beauty. Give it a try.

    It sounds like Ciel Man would a safe place to start given your preferences. The reviews here might be worth a look to see if you agree - they inspired me to give it a shot.

    PS I haven't had a chance to try Silver - sounds like that might be a good bet based on Ruggles comments.

    Silver and Ciel have huge doses of frankincense - Ciel is a bit greener and definitely wetter in feel compared to Silver which is dry and fruity. Both are absolutely amazing! Dia is another option - it's got a hint of sweetness throughout but is far from what I'd call sweet. It's got a subtle smoky leather note in it, too.

    Jubilation 25 (for women) is another option. It's a lemony chypre built on a base of frankincense, tarragon, and a fruit note provided by davana. An excellent chypre, wearable by men if your skin doesn't amplify the fruit note.

    Ciel for Him and Epic Man are both fougères, though Ciel is perhaps farther than Epic from oriental territory.

    Hope that's a help.
