Thread: Amouage - What's your favorite
I know its quite expensive, however I've been lucky enough to sample the range.
I find them all unique, but its impossible to pick just ONE. What are you favorites amongst the collection?

Lyric Man...Its in my Top 10!
I just ordered a decant of Lyric Man, and I'm hoping to sample a few others.
the weirdest thing happened today
I tried on Gold Man for the first time and it smelled REALLY identical to Vintage Tabarome, I was sooo shocked
about 20 mins later there were differences, as of course the Gold was more powdery (not much) and floral
anyone else smell this?
oh, my favorite so far would be a tie between dia and gold
I have yet to try lyric, epic and tribute though
I liked the sample of Gold but found it too....much. At least for any sort of regular wear in my life.
Dia Man is my favorite. It's kind of like "Gold Lite" to me. Not too loud- not too quiet. Versatile.
I tried Lyric a couple of times and it was too rosey for me.
I'm pretty much with StylinLA here. Gold is just too bombastic for me and Lyric is a touch too heavy on the rose. Dia Man is my top choice also.

But none bottle worthy so far.
They'll get one right soon I hope.
I went to the trouble to buy Reflection man. I found it to be the most versatile of the whole series. You can check out my review on my youtube page down below in my signature!

Amouage scents are beautiful but my fave is Jubilation 25.
For sale. Carnal Flower and Vero Profumo Onda.
I've only sampled Dia, Jubilation XXV, Epic Man, Epic Woman, and Tribute Attar thus far, but my favorite among them is Epic Man. Dia was thickly, sickly sweet, and the others either felt too simplistic or just weren't "me".
ointments and perfume delight the heart....
I love Gold. Cause it is floral for men. And it is so damn diffirent.
Homage - which leads me to believe I will also really like Tribute . . .
I probably have been wearing Reflection Man more than any other over the winter, I'm glad I didn't dismiss this at the outset - easy to do considering the company it's in. I also like Lyric Man a lot but I have struggled with Dia - I'm one those unfortunate few who seem to only notice it for 5 minutes and then it's gone. I also like Ciel Man and will be spending more time with it when Spring hits. JXXV was the first one I bought but I don't seem to turn to it very often . . .
Lyric Woman is my favorite. The others are Tribute, Ubar, Gold Woman and Dia Woman.
Not a great fan of Gold, it's a bit too loud for me.
My pick is Jubilation XXV.
My faves are Gold, Silver Cristal, and Jubilation XXV.
Dia for Men, and Jubilation XXV - love the two of them and will buy both in the next 6 months or so.
I am undecided about the Tribute Attar...so smoky and smouldering, I'd feel like a walking lit incense still with it on. It is a bewildering smell, but I'm not sure whether it's for "personal consumption", if you will.
Others that I likely will not buy:
Gold - hard to find an occasion to wear it, not that enamoured with it in any case.
Epic - Didn't like it much at all.
Lyric - have got a sample and will try it soon, however I've never come across a "rosey" fragrance that I want to wear on myself.

I enjoy Gold to wear just for myself, but that's about it. The GF (while she did appreciate it after she realized what it was), initially thought I smelled like one of the cats.
Of the standard EDP line, my favorite is probably Lyric Man, Dia Man, or Jubilation XXV. Homage is my overall favorite, though not sure if that's included. I just ordered Al Mas and I'm really looking forward to trying their other attars that aren't available in the states. Tribute is fantastic as well.
I'm a colognosaurus. Rawr!

Jubilation XXV for me....................followed closely by Epic.
Also love the opening of Gold. Not certain I will ever wear it in public though
My favorites are Dia Man and Reflection Man.

I love Amouage with a wild and unrestrained passion!!!!
My first love is LYRIC WOMAN My second love is UBAR And my third love is GOLD pour femme.

I like Epic Man the best. Jubilation XXV is also very nice but Epic Man is my favorite! Haven't tried Gold Man yet - it must be pretty special if so many like it.
I have gone over this a great deal; I find so many offering so overwhelmingly good, I cannot pick. Also, I find the men's as good as the women's.
It's honestly a seven-way tie between, Ubar, the Dias, The Jubilations, and the Golds.
I am also totally enamored of Attar Tribute. Holy Crap! That's a smoky, magica rose!
Not a fan of Lyrics and Epics, just not my thing.
Tribute is the clear winner here, and I will add another voice to its monstrous approval.
If fragrance has a gender, so does all art.
I have only tried Jubilation XXV, Reflection and Dia Man so I can't comment what's the best (or if there's even such a thing as THE best) but I find Dia Man very versatile and wearable.
I love Jubilation XXV, but the woody amber (ISO E Super?) in the base ruins it for me, as I've become hyper sensitive to it and all I get is a harsh rubbing alcohol smell dominating the other wonderful notes.
Lyric Man gets my vote. The most elegant rose I've smelled.
My favorite is:
in no particular order. sorry I couldn't pick just one. Currently my favorite house.
i love all of them except for Reflection and ciel ladies versions.
but... my absolute love goes to bothe Gold's
My favourite is UBAR - I don't fancy any of the other Amouage scents. Ubar is brilliant - a refined, modernized version of Coco de Chanel. Great sillage. Price tag is off-putting, alas...
Gold for Men
I have yet to try both Attars and Epic / Lyric
I was VERY dissapointed with Dia mens longevity and sillage, it seemed almost designer level to me
An exact tie between Lyric & Reflection Man.
They are both heavenly in their own regard. I wear Reflection about 5 times more often than Lyric, however.
I'd personally rate the rest as follows, by gender
Reflection (ethereal, heavenly, beautiful! Another easy to dismiss fragrance that is really quite exceptional, imo)
Lyric Woman (too cold. The orris really dominates in my experience)
Epic Woman (too coconutty throughout. Rather linear in my experience, unfortunately).
I've also tried Homage Attar and find it to be nice, very nice, but I honestly don't find it to be 'better' than their regular line up. I'm not a huge fan of the projection of Homage, either, starting out ridiculously strong but then fading to be too quiet, too soon.
I haven't tried those not listed. I really need to get around to sampling Ubar!
Iris Pallida 50ml
Ungaro I 75ml
and more! - http://www.basenotes.net/threads/301...n-Man-and-more
I like Dia, probably, I think it's a beautifully crafted fragrance.
In a world where people smell bad, it is the personal responsibility of every Basenoter to improve the world one SotD at a time...
Tribute is the better of the attars....but I like the smell of homage better....does that make any sense? lol Tribute is one of the best most original scents I have ever smelled! but I vote for Homage.....its not as complex as tribute...but its just a beautiful smell.
my stuff for sale!
