    Default If you could only own one Amouage...

    So, I personally love this house, and it seems they are favored on Basenotes as well. Therefore, I ask a question: If you could only own and wear one Amouage fragrance, which one would it be and why?

    For me, it would be close, but I would pick Jubilation XXV. It's one of only two fragrances that I've ever fell in love with at first sniff. I love the berry notes and the incense-like vibe that it gives off. To me, it is pure opulence.

    The close runner up is Memoir Man. The more I wear it, the more I like it.

    Reflection Man! Jubilation gives off a generic attar vibe to me, can definitely smell the quality in it though.

    One of my favorite niche houses. The opposite with me, I'd pick Memoir Man followed closely by Jubilation XXV.

    Epic Man. That stuff has luxury and wealth written all over it. Also smells great and projects forever.
    Expect the unexpected.

    Memoir Man or Jubilation XXV. I may actually end up selling Reflection Man.

    Looks like we have similar taste. I agree that Memoir Man is an amazing fragrance. At first I was not a fan of how peppery it was, but that is slowly growing on me. I just need to figure out if I like it better than Black Amber.

    Sure we do. It's a tough choice between the two, Jub is also great but there is something about Memoir that I really love more, probably the tobacco note.

    +1. It took me some time to appreciate this fragrance. I think it is now my favorite from Amouage. I've heard even better things about Epic Woman!

    I only own one Amouage at the moment and it is JXXV. If I were to get another it would be Honour Man.

    Reflection Man is the only one I like, so I have that, with one backup bottle. I'm willing to entertain the possibilty of giving the rest of the line another chance.

    For me it's Jubilation XXV. I love the attars, but they're just not as practical or versatile. My runner up would be Jubilation 25 - I have a used bottle of that one on the way, and it was a close call when I bought XXV.

    JXXV, there is no substitute. Ask me on a different day and I might say Reflection or Memoir.

    Default Re: If you could only own one Amouage...

    Epic is easily on the top of Amouage masculines. XXV is very good as well but on the end of a day is a gigantic crowdpleaser. Then there is a gap that could host swarm of asteroids followed by Honour. That should not stop any connoisseur indulging in all three of them.

    Not easy - I own several and rate Amouage second equal with Malle as a house, after Guerlain.

    If we take the original Homage out of competition then I'm thinking Ubar, maybe - been enjoying that a lot lately.

    Being a huge Amouage fan, I just can't decide on just one. I guess it would be a tie between Jubilation XXV, Tribute, Memoir Man and Opus IV.

    I don't own any other. But I guess an aromatic/woody scent wouldn't be bad - I particularly like frankincense and myrrh and I think quite a few Amouage fragrances have these notes.
