Dia Man, because it smells the best and is extremely versatile, IMO.
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.

4) Lalfeorosa (O'driù) - tie
6) Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz)
7) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
8) Tzora (Anat Fritz)
Reflection Man! Jubilation gives off a generic attar vibe to me, can definitely smell the quality in it though.
Lyric or Epic most likely.

"A beautiful fragrance to the nose is like good jazz music to the ears, great food to the mouth, and Megan Fox and Jessica Alba to the eyes..."
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.
Several I like quite a bit, but I think my favorite is Jubilation XXV
1. Creed - Spice & Wood
2. Creed - Aventus
3. Dior - Vetiver
4. by Kilian - Straight to Heaven
5. by Kilian - Cruel Intentions
6. Puredistance - Black
7. Tom Ford - Plum Japonais
8. Neela Vermeire - Trayee
9. Creed - Royal Oud
10. Chanel - Egoiste
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.
Memoir Man suits me best, follow by JXX5
AUSSIES, join our exclusive niche split club.

Guerlain - Sous Le Vent, Angélique Noire, Bois d'Armenie, Cruel Gardenia, Rose Barbare
and many more niches up for split...
Memoir Man is the stuff
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.
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.
I own decants of Epic M. & JubiXXV, I prefer JubiXXV.
The best frankincense-based perfume ever.

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.
It has to be Lyric for Men. And in fact, it's on my shopping list...
À l'air libre les oiseaux ont eux aussi le vertige (camille)
Vintage Tribute Attar - As it is very opulent and luxurious.
Haven´t tried the attars. Thus far the only Amouage I´ve actually pulled the trigger on is Lyric Man.
Still only a limited knowledge, but Jubilation xxv, followed by Dia.
Attars aside, I'd pick Ubar.
Amouage Gold. Period.
No rain, no rainbow
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.
Kurt smells like Teen Spirit
Jubilation XXV and Tribute attar.
Hey guys, I know it's tough, but how about playing along and naming just one single Amouage frag. I luv seeing the range in this thread.
Epic Man.... and it is the only one I own!

Would love to see this thread in the form of a poll!
Ubar or Memoir Woman. From what I have smelled.
"One gives freely, yet grows all the richer; another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want." Proverbs.
Memoir Man & Jubilation XXV. Own both of them, the best IMO
Jubilation XXV or Asrar.
Lyric Man is the only one that I find worthy from this house
Amouage Reflection ( Second Ciel ).
Could be different once I actually wear Opus V1 - smells terrific though
Lyric. Everything else is bleh- even (dare I say it?) Jubilation 25. The truth comes out!
There are only few I've not tried as yet. By far the best one is Honour Man. Ethereal, elegant, cold and warm at the same time, interesting with multiple faces.
I don't have any Amouage in my collection. What is the longevity and projection on these?
I will blind buy as normal, probably Epic Man or Jubilation XXV or maybe both
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.
dia man 1+1+1
reflection man 1+1+1+1
opus iv 1
Opus 1V has to be one of the best sexiest scents in the market!
Sniff + Wear introduced to me by Renata from Sens Unique as the most sensual bottle she had in the shop in Paris.
"The beginning of freedom is the realization that you are not the "thinker." The moment you start watching the thinker, a higher level of consciousness becomes activated. You then begin to realize that there is a vast realm of intelligence beyond thought, that thought is only a tiny aspect of that intelligence. You also realize that all the things that truly matter - beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace - arise from beyond the mind.
You begin to awaken"
-- Eckhart Tolle
Lyric Woman, so far.
I tried Memoir Woman for a special occasion, and I like it, but it wore me out. Very strong.
Dia Man for everyday use
Memoir Man for more formal occasions (i.e. in a suit)
From the regular line would be a tie bewteen JubXXV, Jub25 and Memoir Man. From their Attars I'd go for Tribute and Opus IV from the Opuses...

It's a tie for me between, Homage, Tribute and Epic Woman Extrait.
Limited to one I would pick Memoir Man but I would mourn for Jubilation XXV an Epic Man
In this moment i crave for Lyric man but Jubilation XXV use to delight my senses deeply.
