I love Opus, especially Opus 1. That's why I bought this one. To me, it is the best in my Amouage collection ( Lyric, Gold, Dia, Jubilation, Silver, Reflection ).
I think anyone who can't stand the strength of Amouage scents, will be able to fall into Opus I. Opus I is not an "in-your-face" scent like Epic or Gold or Jubilation. It is soft, smooth, deep, and wonderful. It smells like something's always there, something standard, something never change. It lingers for so long, and has many faces. When I tested it for the first time, I got surprise. How could a scent can smell that great? It opened with enjoyable and smooth floral notes for about 20 minutes. Floral notes started calming down, then dry rose note played its role, so deep and dark and seductive... The rose still showed the charm while woody notes, including strong dry and sharp guaiacwood + warm and smoky cardamom, appeared to stay forever... Very diffirent, very beautiful.
