Good morning all. Today is a Midnight in Paris type of day.
Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

Beloved Man (Amouage)
Official Launch today at Lane Crawford, Hong Kong. Had a nice chat with Christopher Chong and enjoying this very much - it strikes me as a no-nonsense high quality take on a classic aromatic woods oriental masculine accord. This is not an exotic or challenging Amouage, it is one that I think will be accessible to guys who are 'not into perfume' necessarily but appreciate quality. Like Beloved Woman it is a riff on more classical perfumery, and one that will probably gather steam as word gets out - I may find my way back and buy one at some point, I would certainly recommend it to some guys I know who are not basenotes members.
