    Interlude Man, among the ones I have tried.

    I think Memoir Man is probably my favorite, followed by Tribute and Fate Man. Memoir Man is just a great moody scent—kind of a big bummer perfume. Tribute is one of those scents that wears you, but it does it so well. Fate Man has a great old-school feel that sidesteps anachronism. It bridges immortelle and cumin really nicely.

    I've been wearing Gold Woman quite a bit lately, and I also quite liked their Amber Attar. Gold Woman is a clever play on the traditional chypre, replacing moss with orris. Amber Attar is synthy as all hell (and is therefore astonishingly overpriced), but it does smell great and quite authentic. I'm probably one of a tiny handful of folks here who really doesn't like JubXXV or Epic Man at all, FWIW (although Epic Woman is pretty good).

    As an aside, if anyone's looking at Interlude Man, this is an astonishingly close replica (and I don't say that lightly): http://www.ebay.com/itm/Barari-Misk-...item3ce6c88ac1

    The main difference is that it's not quite as sugary-sweet as the Amouage with more of an emphasis on the dry burned leaves effect that Interlude has. The late-late-late dry down is a bit of a synthetic woodyamber, but no more so than the base of JubXXV. Even though I have a bottle of Interlude Man that I grabbed a while ago, I'm considering picking this up just for that slight attenuation of the sweetness.

    Not a common opinion but my favorite is Honour Man. I really like the Black Pepper and spice notes.

    Dia Man, luxurious and discreet.
    Jubilation XXV, soft and opulent.
    Interlude Man, beastly mix of incense and herbs.

    I would include several attars like Tribute, Homage, Taifi Rose, Badr al Badour and Ayoon al Maha, however they're now becoming difficult to source.

    Epic man, although the reformulation seems to be missing some of the sandalwood in the bass that helped make it such a smooth enveloping experience. The finish seems a little unbalanced now.

    Also like Interlude Man, but Epic Man is the only one I've purchased a larger amount of.
    Aventus? Never heard of it.

    My favorite Amouage is Use the search function Attar.

    Vintage versions of Ubar and Gold Man are just ridiculously opulent and intoxicating florals. Not easy to wear, but real pillars of classic perfumery.

  13. #13

    Default Re: What is you favorite Amouge and why?

    Like Alfa, I like so many from this house, but Sandal attar, Homage attar & Tribute attar top my list; if we are sticking only to spray edp's, then Gold man for it's civety florals & Interlude might be the top 2, but this house has so many winners & I'm glad to own many in their older versions. Talk of some perfumes being watering down from Amouage makes me cringe...

    Vintage Epic Man, not the formulation being sold now!
    Also scentwise and not considering performance, Jubilation XXV.

    Of the ones I've tried, Jubilation was the most pleasant for me.

    Can't choose between Opus VI and Memoir Man. They're both fantastic. Not sure why, necessarily, I just know that they smell fantastic and put me in a better mood.

    Opus V1 is THE ONE for me. I could easily fall in love with Epic if it wasn't reformulated.

    Default Re: What is you favorite Amouge and why?

    Interlude Man. It might be my all time favorite scent by any house. The stuff is intoxicating. It's also a marvelous mix of beauty and a beast. The opening is definitely challenging, with its smoke, but buried beneath it lurks a beautiful amber that comes out more and more as the hours pass, and it lives on for ages on whatever you wore that day. 2 sprays last 24 hours. And that's 2 sprays from what just might be the world's lightest sprayer. The first time you use it, you may think "This sprayer sucks!!!" ...but Interlude is so powerful that you'll probably be glad the sprayer is so light.

    Reflection Man is another favorite of mine from Amouage, though not quite as much of a favorite as Interlude. Any time you hear someone compare Reflection Man to Le Male, you know that person only paid attention to the opening. Yes, there's a bit of a similarity initially - almost as if Reflection is Le Male with very high quality ingredients - but Reflection turns into something quite different as it evolves on skin. It would make a great date scent.

    I am really getting into Amouage. My favorite so far is Jubilation. It smells so rich and opulent. I also love Epic, Memoir, and Interlude. I blind bought a bottle of Dia, and it should be here on Tuesday. I also own Reflection, but it is my least favorite.

    My favorite is Fate Woman. Which is really very dissimilar to the majority of what the house represents (used to represent? apparently they're embarking on a new path).
    I don't like Memoir Man but I appreciate the composition.

    Jvxxv is unbelievable as how so many notes came to a blended conjunction of beauty and it's the only spicy scent that I truly dig.

    Went into town today with the intention of purchasing Interlude Man and sampling Memoir Man as I read a review saying the drydown is similar to Interlude Man.

    But let me start with the back story as I'm not an Amouge fan and yet to own a bottle. I sampled
    Interlude Man last week and sprayed some on my coat, it was ok but I got this urine note a few minutes in, some people say BBQ chicken which I don't get. When the urine note goes I get a nice incense and vanilla which I like a lot.

    Yesterday I put on the same coat which I not worn for a week and I kept getting whiffs of the incense and vanilla... it was awesome stuff. But for some reason it smelled richer and darker... so I had to rush out today and sample it again.

    I sampled it on my hand and still smell it now but lacks the richness it has on my coat. And that urine note really puts me off, if it was dark and smokey all the way through, I would be all over this but for the moment it not some that I could wear.

    As for Memoir Man that is a scrubber, just straight up nasty. Reminded me of Armani's Bois d'Encens.

    So at the moment only Reflection Man is the most wearable for me, but not FB worthy.

    I've really come up empty with the alcohol-based Amouages. I used to really like Reflection Man, but my newest bottle of it has been quite a letdown.

    I have a bunch of their attars. My very best guess is that none of them were made after 2010, and most of them are on my top twenty list. So my answer would be Al Shomoukh.

    Exactly. It's a cetalox/civet blend with an oliffac type material that does a fine job of approximating ambergris and sandalwood, but it's pretty synthy when compared with actual ambergris and sandalwood. I like it though!

    That's odd! Memoir Man is largely Iso E at its core and Interlude is a textbook sweet woodyamber base. Totally different bases really.
