    I prefer Jubiliation XXV, but I consider all four hard to wear. Honour Man is probably the most wearable.

    I have only Jubilation XXV from amouage, but it's not as smoky as Memoir Man...
    To consider having Amouage scents me myself prefer this order:
    Jubilation XXV
    Epic Man
    Memoir Man

    I know I am no big help, but I remember having a bottle of Amouage that was transparent with an ivory-color top as I've mentioned on a different thread that was pretty decent, I do not see it on their current line up. However, it did have some spices, so I am not completely sure about the smokiness aspect.

    I myself find Amouage to be overpowering, maybe I haven't found the one yet, but I do love their level of quality and it radiates very well. I'd really love to if they have lighter scent in comparison to the two I've tried, I'm sure I'd like it.

    I've only tried epic and memoir, but memoir man is the clear winner for me between those two.

    JXXV, received my 100ML bottle today and wow, boozy, blackberry, cinnamon, it's smells amazing on my skin, in the bottle all I thought was 'Talcum powder' then I tried it on my skin and it transformed itself into something really prestigious.

    If u like cold oud then Epic

    If u like white cold vetiver Honour

    If u like orient Jubilation

    If u like dark , mistirious then Memoir

    No comparation... no similarity .... tumb up always for Amouage

    My choice would be Memoir.

    Honour Man doesn't rank with me, something about it just doesn't sit right. I think part of it is the idea of Amouage and vetiver clash. When I tried it it didn't seem that special.

    I own Jubilation, Memoir, and Epic. I find that I grab Memoir the most, it's just SO GOOD. Jubilation XXV would be my 2nd pick. Epic Man would be 3rd, and while very rich it just doesn't touch the other 2 I feel.

    Honestly, JXXV, a memoir, and Epic are the Holy Trinity for me in this house.

    Memoir man is definitely the one with the most smoky incense. However, Jubilation XXV is another good choice, though it is a little sweeter and has a nice blueberry/plum note.

    Can't go past Jubilation and Epic.

    I must bump this.
    Interlude Man is precisely what you are looking for.
    I have been no fan of Amouage's recent craze of smoke in their fragrances. Epic smelled like Sex Panther by Odion and a burning drum of crude petroleum. Memoir smelled like someone dumped a very full ashtray on top of fresh basil leaves. And Honour man smelled like "Chanel Allure Edition Blanche Poivre Extrême Et Cigarette"

    Interlude man, on the other hand.....smells like a massive suede box of stickless Japanese Shoyeido/Baeido incense, sitting in a home where Oud chips smoldered the night before, after a delicious Italian dinner and spiced baklava for dessert.

    Interlude Man's incense smoke is not parched or ashy, but rich, smooth, and creamy, almost warm and humid. The leather is not plasticky like Pure Leather, it is soft and rich suede. And I was worried the oregano or allspice would bring too much chaos, but Interlude is smooth and powerful.

    A very unexpected winner from Amouage.

    I still like Ciel Man and Jubilaton XXV more, but Interlude is 3rd, and Arcus is #4. Everything I liked in Opus #4 seems to be in interlude, but the fruits are toned down, and the cumin removed. Plus a huge massive dose of a Japanese frankincense/myrrh incense. Good stuff.

    I agree with DULLAH.
    Interlude is exactly what you're describing you're looking for.
    In my small collection I have Interlude and Epic, like them both a lot and find
    Interlude very smoky, warm and humid, like DULLAH described.
    Jubilaton XXV has nothing to do with what you're looking for, IMHO.

    I totally agree.

    Despite finding Jubilation XXV to be the overall best fragrance of all the fragrances the OP mentioned, it is ABSOLUTELY NOT SMOKY. And the frankincense in it is more the smell of raw hojary frankincense resin tears, not the smell of smoldering frankincense. XXV is all about dried fruits, woody notes, and thick immortelle.

    Amouage finally honed their smoke game with Interlude. Lovers of burning Japanese incense, smooth rich suede, AVENTUS' smoky heart, CDG Kyoto, and huge sillage/longevity should seek out Interlude.

    Dullah,

    Wow you really nailed it. I too am on the fence on whether to purchase Interlude or not. I really don't like incense on my skin. I feel it belongs as a room scent BUT Interlude does it in a way that makes you reconsider. It does last for a REALLY LONG time.

    So after not being into the whole smokey Amouage thing you got over it and purchased Interlude because it amazed you that much ?

    I am looking at 100ml of TF Italian Cypress or Interlude. Gold man is out. It was not the beast everyone says it is IMO.

    Gold man, to me, smells like something Marilyn Miglin would release in 1983. The few redeeming notes in it, appear in a far greater, more masculine, less filthy, and more accessible composition, in Arabian Oud's "Arabian Nights Gold"

    I never got over Amouage's ashy smoke, I still dislike and am underwhelmed by their post-Homage releases (until Interlude). Hopefully Beloved Man isn't an overly-powdery, overly-sweet femme cloud like Reflection man.

    I just liked the difference in the smokiness found in Interlude.....it's not sullen, not EMO, not pallid or "ashtray", nor is it greasy petrol like Epic. Interlude's smokiness is bold and confident......yet also warm, cozy, smooth, and mildly spicy-sweet, almost as if there is a touch of guerlain-y Benzoin under the Spices, Labdanum, and Oppoponax. Much more contemporary, peaceful, and accessible than their 2008-2012 catalog, IMHO. Certainly Amouage's best "smokey Incense".....Interlude has grabbed my attention (and wears) from Arabian Oud's "Horoof Otriyah" (another current favorite smokey-spicy-fruity-Incense winter scent). I'm liking it a lot, despite almost universally disliking Suede and smoke in perfumes. Well done, Pierre.

    I have already tried Jubilation, Lyric and Memoir. What else is worth trying? I personally didn't like Memoir, but liked the other two. So based on those likings which other Amouage Men do you think I would like or should test?

    Kilian's Rose Oud, Arabian Oud's Mukhallat Al Diwan and Mukhallat Al Sheyokh. Czech and Speake's No. 88. Washington Tremlett's BLack Tie. From Amouage, I'd suggest Interlude man, and if you liked the thick, resinous, maple-y aspect of Jubilation, I'd like to see what you thought of Annick Goutal's Sables....
