A kind of simple perfection to this one. Like a green leather chypre redone with resins. Bandit after a decade in the California Central Coast range.

A sample ofAmouage Gold
I have now worn all 6 of my Amouage samples once and I can say that my favorite is Reflection, closely followed by Memoir, Jubilation XXV, then Lyric I'm not overly keen on (it is a nice fragrance, just don't think I could pull it off), same goes for Gold, and my least favorite has to be Epic, it just smells like I have smoked a cigarette and nothing else!
Amouage Gold (Men)
ointments and perfume delight the heart....
Guerlain's Vetiver pour Elle. A simple, improvised fragrance that nonetheless smells terrific. The flowers add new interesting aspects to the vetiver, sort of colour it with a more cheerful and spring-like shade of green that enhances its fresh saltness. In return, the root neutralizes the potential risk of a banal flower soap. And just when you think you've had enough of it, the beloved ashy drydown from the original Vetiver turns up, as if it knew you had hoped it would come.

Is the juice worth the squeeze?
Still trying my sample of Amouage Homage..deciding if i should buy a bottle...
reminds me of a dessert wine
Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."
