    Default Amouage Dia came without hand written note - worry-alert?

    Hi guys.

    Yesterday I collected my two Amouages bought on 10% sale from strawberrynet (became more like 14% with some other discounts, for some reason).

    Anyways, picked up 100 ml of Ciel and Dia. Ciel came with the hand-written note from "Khadija" (thanks, awesome juice) but my Dia came without such a note, only a silic gel to prevent moisture. I found that somewhat peculiar because I seem to remember all my previous Amouages have come with this hand-written note.

    Also, the batch number on my Dia was a short 5-digit / letter number on a see-through sticker while Ciel had a long ... LONG batch-number printed in black. I've checked my other Amouage-bottles and most seem to have that long black batch except gold, which also has a short one but not in the same sticker-form.

    Now, Dia smells amazing and my girlfriend picked it up from my chest this morning after I applied yesterday at eight o clock, so longevity seems to be pretty damn good, and it smells awesome as well. Still, should I be worried? If it's a fake I guess it's the best one ever, but I'm just getting slightly thrown off by the batch-number sticker and the lack of a meaningless hand-written note.

    If it smells right I wouldn't worry. I got a Dia recently from Escentual with no hand-written note and it is identical to the manufacturer's sample. Those fancy bottles must be pricey to make and hard to copy well on the cheap.

    No need to worry, I have purchased many Amouage fragrances for splits from Luckyscent and The Perfume Shoppe and only one or two came with a hand written note. The last three I just completed, Jubilation XXV, Memoir Man and Epic Man, the only one with the note was the Jubilation. The rest had a silica pack.

    Thanks for the info guys, that's good news. I was assuming the same, it was just paranoia getting the better of me apparently.

    And damn, Dia is a GREAT fragrance - well, Ciel as well. I'm very happy with my purchases.

    My Memoir Man from Lucky Scent came without a written note. I wouldn't worry about it.

    My Memoir Man from MiN came without a note, and they are as reputable as they come.

    I just got two bottles of Amouage within the las two months, Lyric and Memoir. Lyric came with a note, and Memoir came without one, and a silic pack. I have Jubilation XXV as well, and that came with a note. The only difference I can find is that Lyric and XXV were made in Oman, and the Memoir was made in the Amouage UK branch. The ones made in the UK probably don't have the note.

    I had the same worry as you, as I didn't seem to really pick up much projection from the Memoir and thought the UK one made inferior batches (which I still haven't ruled as out of the question), but I had a similar dilemma when I first wore XXV as well, so I'll have to decide upon further testings.

    Longevity was good, it just seemed projection was bad.
