    +1. I had both, but swaped them. If I had to choose one, it would be Memoir.

    Epic. I've only sampled Memoir Man once, but I didn't like the drydown.

    Epic is very opulent and elegant. Memoir is rich and addictive. Really hard to choose. Both worth owning. I sampled both of these but bought Epic Man first. Now thinking, when the weather gets colder again, Memoir could be next.

    I like both. I would get Epic because I find it more focused.

    I like and own both of them. Epic is focused on oudh and frankincense. It's opulent, rich, warm. Memoir is definitely austere, dry, aromatic and bitter.

    i like Epic better, so I would purchase that one before Memoir. However, Memoir is more versatile and you could wear it more often than Epic.

    Have not tried Epic, but Memoir is hands down my favorite of the other Amouage's I've tried (Dia, Lyric, Jub XXV).

    I bought Memoir Man, I also like the absinthe green and the frankincense. Epic is a bit of a one liner for me by comparison (okay, boring). Own and wear Epic Woman, though, great stuff - earthy herbal medicinal feel, has everything Man has but with a bit more going on.

    My exact sentiments.

    I'd go with memoir man because epic man is too strong for me..
    Top notes on memoir man are great, really liked it but then the drydown not so much
    Epic woman is smoother sweeter with a tea note, nice
    I think memoir woman was also sweeter, i'll have to recheck samples..

    At the moment Epic. Have tried Memoir twice. First time I was distictly underwhelmed; a heavier application at the second time had me much more interested. I will buy Memoir at some point I'm sure, but if I had to pick one it would be Epic.

    These two are probably my favs from the entire Amouage line so it would be a hard pick for me.

    What is the note in drydown of Memoir Man that causes a "defumed food" smell? Don't believe it"s frankincense since I notice none of this in Czech&Speake Frankincense and Myrrh, the incense note is much lighter and definitely cleaner. I love the topnotes of Memoir but dislike the drydown.
    Thx guys.

    Memoir Man, whilst I own and enjoy Epic Man, Memoir is considerably more affable, wearable and versatile.
    Smells delicious and mysterious.

    Just realized that someone bumped a thread from 2011. We may be just a little too late to help the OP.

    The bump was relevant as long as I was having the same thought as it's better than starting a new thread since this exists. It was not to help the OP, but rather to chime in on which you find more to your liking.

    Epic by far, for me. In memoir the woods come on too heavy in the opening, and although they fade out after a bit there is a somehwrs sharp note in the dry down I dislike.

    Don't want to change the subject of this topic but: I never had the chance, at least yet, to do a side by side comparison or at least smelling one and the other soon after that but to the ones who have tried both:

    Is it true what some people told me that Epic Man smells a lot like vintage M7 (Maybe in a deeper more intense way) or not a lot/at all? It's been so long since I've smelled Epic, and I've smelled so many ones since then, that I don't remember it. It is already included in my next sample order though Thanks a lot.

    Thanks guy I truly appreciate it! But I'm disappointed lol As time goes by I'm less and less into "hunting" fragrances and I'm kind of tired to search for my beloved vintage M7 bottles. So I was hoping it could have been my new, as good or even better if possible, M7 I'm still eager to smell it in my next sample order though as I really enjoy Amouage's fragrances thus far.

    Both are masterpieces in my book. Or at least they were. Epic was the winner of the 2, however the new formulation of Epic is very disappointing to me, I would not buy it. If Memoir is the same formula it was 2 years ago, then definitely Memoir is the winner. The first time I wore it I felt a wonderful calming affect take over, it was wholly unexpected and welcome. I've compared them both many times, and then done comparisons b/w the old formula of Epic and the new Epic, and the old wins easily in every way.
