    I've seen the prices for 'regular' Amouage's, how much are these concentrates?

    I saw a 30ml of Tribute on the Luckyscent site for 650.

    Default Re: If you can only have one Amouage attar, what would it be?

    I have only tried 3 of them ...

    Homage is beautiful , maybe one of the best fragrances on the market . It is fairly linear and only lasts around 6 hours on my skin .

    Tribute on the other hand is so deep and dense and it takes forever to reach down into the base which is amazing .

    Al Andalus is mostly that citrus and rosemary part from Homage , it lasts and lasts forever even after showering I can still smell it on my skin . I have heard people comparing it to a Chanel but dont recall which it is ?

    I would love to try Ouhd Al Khaloud but at around $1000 for 12ml it aint gonna happen LOL !!!

    Default Re: If you can only have one Amouage attar, what would it be?

    I wonder if the Amouage store sells smaller quantities - they typically come in 12ml, but usually arabic perfumers have a bottle and will decant any quantity, ie also 3 and 6 ml. Still expensive, of course, but at least one can have two.

    Default Re: If you can only have one Amouage attar, what would it be?

    I'd be split between Homage and Tribute and would probably lean towards Homage - I love rose

    Al Andalus is very nice too but not nearly as refined and complex as the other two mentioned above. Besides, if you have GIT, you've already got a reasonable approximation.

    Al Khaloud is absolutely not worth the money it sells for, it's a generic blend oud oils with other ingredients, mainly rose. The oud component is so generic (because of being a blend of different ouds) and so anemic that it's probably worth half of its pricetag, if that.

    Others are interesting but none that I've tried really captured my imagination and some I didn't like at all (Al Shomoukh - nasty synthetic musk ruins this one). Al Molook is not unpleasant if you like rose/ambergris, but not bottle worthy for me.

    Well, considering most people have only tried or only know of homage and tribute, you won't get useful feedback. i have tried quite a few, and my two favorites are homage and asrar(a saffron based one)

  20. #20

    Default Re: If you can only have one Amouage attar, what would it be?

    Homage without a doubt, but given the fact I have only tried four and there are so many I don't know what that means, really.

    The Sandalwood is very good - more or less a straight Mysore IMO, which alone makes it worth having.

  21. #21

    Default Re: If you can only have one Amouage attar, what would it be?

    Homage for sure

    I've tried most of them and, while there's an initial wow factor to some of them, after a couple of tests/wearings, their short-comings become even more apparent (i.e. most of them are not worth the prices charged).

    Tribute would have been my choice but the cedar drydown simply cheapens the composition, as well as ruining my enjoyment of it. I mean after paying so much money, the last thing you want is a mainstream masculine designer drydown...

    Homage and Asrar, followed by Bahjah. Homage and Asrar blend perfectly together.

    @ Ash H

    Perhaps Amouage's attars line such as Homage and Tribute are more accessible than others, hence the reasons.

    @ All

    Thank you for your posts, keep the information going.

    Homage... hands down

  27. #27

    Default Re: If you can only have one Amouage attar, what would it be?

    Easy, Tribute.

    I find Homage too feminine for me, and most of the other attars don't reach the combination of power, sophistication and balance as tribute does (for me). Note however, that many (eg. Asrar, al mas) are top notch attars in their own
    right.

    Haven't tried al shomukh unfortunately...

    Oudh al khaloud is superb if you are used to the barnyardy/fecal note in some oudh (Indian?). Enormous staying power.

    Igore i totaly dotn agree wity what you wright here about oud al khaloud.
    i do own a original bottle and it is pure hindi oud... no rose at all.

  29. #29

    Default Re: If you can only have one Amouage attar, what would it be?

    And.. i dotn see Ashgan in the list.. but this one is my fav!

    Silver oud is a pure cambodi oud.
    it is very smothe and delicate.
    oud and amber ...they get smother while they age.
    most BN'rs here are used to the cheaper quality that kills u
    because it is sharp and strong smelling.... but strong smelling is not the same as
    aged and good quality oil.

    then there is the THAQUEEL kind of oud... wich is a thick syrupy like liquid .
    thaqueel doenst mean pure oil or better qualety..... it only say in arabic.... Heavy/thick.

    Default Re: If you can only have one Amouage attar, what would it be?

    Personally I would love to have all of them in my collection! But if I absolutely had to choose one ... hmmm lets see ... hehehe wow this is a pretty hard decision to make ... I think it would probobly be Tribute? No wait! It would be Badr Al Badour, no no no! It would have to be Homage!!! *sigh* I give up ... they are all beautiful! I can't make this decision lol ...

  31. #31

    Default Re: If you can only have one Amouage attar, what would it be?

    Homage, but .... I find the drydown of molook (malook?) to smell like the opening of Homage while the drydown of Homage is a little on the forgettable side so I tend to wear them together but separate: Homage on the left side Malook on the right. Anyway I think Malook (molook?) is a little cheaper than Homage. Malook also has a more traditional middleastern feel than homage in the opening so in a way you get more: traditional opening with homage-opening like drydown.

    The "cheap" ones I've tried and felt were worth buying are Jasmine and Sandal. The musk is nice but very very weak and the rose is this heavy duty rose oil very difficult to wear you might even say awful.

    @ moreda

    Arrrgh...I did not know Ashgan Attar does exists. I believe it's a limited edition isn't it.

    @ Eildor

    Apparently in Middle East countries you could get them cheaper than the US or Europe.

    I wouldn't be without Homage or Tribute, why settle for one or the other. Luckyscent offers 12ml for $350.00. I would buy 6ml of Homage for $151.00 and 12ml of Tribute for $237.00 from www.zahras.com - only an extra $38.00 and you could own two of the best scents currently being produced on our planet.

    I agree totally with this. Tribute is too commercially perfect for my taste.

    +1 Al Andulus and also did like Molook but could not talk myself into buying. Where to find Al Andulus? Is it exclusive to Selfridges? Harrods?

    Default Re: If you can only have one Amouage attar, what would it be?

    6 ml of one of these will last you a long long long time

    and the reason they are so expensive, really, is so you won't smell every other guy wearing it. that's the only real justification. and so the less "traditional" the more they really are worth so much, I'd say

    they are being pretty kind selling 6 ml for less than half of 12 ml, although... it could be annoying to the people who paid for 12 ml. I got mine 2nd hand, which is the other option. paid about 200 for 12 ml.

    Hypothetically speaking - Tribute, but would never personally consider buying any Amouage attar.

    I spoke with Amouage yesterday about their attars, they mentioned IFRA was causing a real headache in the EU and hence the decision to stop the attars. I also received an email from Fitjar, a Norwegian shaving product company, who are closing their business as the EU requires detailed documentation for each product and it has become too burdensome.

    Back to the question about Amouage attars, choosing one is close to impossible if you've tried most of them. I can only say my favourites are: Tribute, Homage, Taifi Rose, Badr al Badour and Ayoon al Maha.


    Updated list of Amouage attars:
