    Default Maison Francis Kurkdjian Amyris Homme - I just tried it!

    Hello fellow Basenoters!
    At the end of last week my samples of newest perfume from Maison Francis Kurkdjian arrived at my door.

    I must say that I'm HUGELY impressed by how great this perfume smells.
    A woody iris with a nice sweet touch, and with some oud.
    Really amazing stuff!
    Gotta put it on my to-buy list, it's so amazing.

    And what more I'm an iris lover so it seems to be a must for me.

    For longer, more detailed impressions please tak a look at my blog

    That would be great if you droped by and left a comment eventually!

    If anyone else of you tried it please do ABSOLUTELY share your thoughts! I'm curious what others think about it!

    Heavy on the iris? I'll have to avoid it then

    Maybe not typically heavy, but iris is the main player. I think resins and oud make it heavier

    Have tried the new Amyris one, the femme version is a leafy/citrusy scent and orange,lemon tree flower and amyris play the main roles here. The iris, vetiver and wood notes are very faint and subtle, i mean really subtle.. It has pretty good longevity actaully, sprayed some on last night around 11pm and now i can still able to smell the scent at 8 in the morning. Just like APOM and Lumiere Noire, Amyris homme shares a similar composition to the femme version and i guess maybe because of the tonka bean, it appears a bit more sensual but just like the other fragrances from MFK’s line, both versions are actually quite neutral.

    Have been wearing the homme version for couple days and despite it is in EDT form, longevity and projection are both outstanding. It’s most likely come second after Absoulety Pour le Soir from the brand. I could easily smell the fragrance from my neck after a hot shower. On me, just like the femme version, the iris was also very subtle in this one. (no lipstick or powder pouch) I guess due to the rosemary and tonka bean notes, there was a certain phase reminding me of Le Male. Not much, just a hint.

    I don't get anything remotely close to Le Male out of this. The other poster may be responding to the faint underlying milk chocolate note that runs throughout this one, but I can say without question that I never once thought of Le Male while wearing this the multiple times I have.
    Splits!

    I'm REALLY hoping the Neiman's in Vegas has this in stock next week when I'm there. Don't wanna blind buy this at that price point.

    I have only sniffed this on paper in the store, so you can take this with a grain of salt, but this fragrance reminded me a lot of Aqua di Gio. I still intend to sample and skin test it, as I love several other MFK fragrances.

    I have to agree with you on this. I smelt it at neimans beverly hills and it was the most generic MFK I have ever smelled. Literally smelled like a department store scent. I own Luminere Noir and APOM and find them stunning but this was a BIG letdown.

    Received a sample last week from Bergdorf. While I found it to be a nice fragrance, it turned into a skin scent in less than two hours on me.

    tried this one in Hk. It smells like a better designer scent. It led me to nowhere.

    Still waiting for my samples. It kinda surprises me that so very few reviews are available for this fragrance considering it's already out for a while. Anyone know where I can read a review of it while I wait for my samples to arrive, besides lucasai's excellent review of course...

    I have apom and lumiere and tried amyris this past week and was unimpressed.

    The topnotes started out kind of ok but then it just smelled really synthetic and I was getting the dry woody (norlimbanol)? vibe going and it just kind of reminded me of muglers outrageous for a bit.

    Not in the same feel as the rest of the brand to me, just smelled flowery, thin, watery and fake woods. Not terrible just didn't really care for it.

    Half-decent for a department store scent. By MFK standards - a clunker.
