    I could not find any information on this. Do you have a product description? I've haven't tested any of the Library line yet but might try VI soon.

    OH MAN!!! I've been waiting for this...I LOVE Opus VI. Nothing in the "news" section of their website.

    That's weird...

    I'm only saying that as I already know what it smells like and black isn't a colour I would associate Opus VII with.

    Btw, here is a review of Opus VII. Personally, I completely disagree with the description, unless I've been led down the garden path. Iris has already been covered in Opus V, so I don't know what they're going on about:

    Hm, although currently a bit over-used I like those notes. Depending on how they are balanced I imagine this could be something slicker then the typical Amouage bombast. Good thing they didn't reuse the amber base.

    It's a weird list of notes. Not what I'd expect to see from the perfumers involved - Morillas & Negrin.

    Anyone else smell this yet? Trebor - I'd love to hear your thoughts.

    I have no idea what to expect with this one.

    I think this is going to be very woody and very masculine, despite the waxing over Iris. the most masculine of any Opus to date. Perhaps like Xerjoff's Fiero with aspects of Epic man and Memoir man, and the unsweet elements of Interlude man and Beloved man. i think this Amouage will get back on their track of serious, dark and earthy and smokey, away from where i liked it going with Interlude man.

    natural orris and iris aren't particularly femme, and when paired with smoke and fenugreek, i think this one will be mega earthy, with the nuance of dried leaves, and dried leaves burning on moist earth.

    Smelled it yesterday.

    First thing I said was it smells like French Lover a bit. That's a good thing. This was briefly from a blotter.

    Need to test it further....

    Now that's intriguing! I think I'm blind buying this one if it smells like French Lover.

    Hrmm disappointing, can't say I think too highly of this assortment of notes and the comparison to french lover whilst speaking highly of it, does nothing for this sounding like anything new or exciting.

    Please tell me it's not as thin, synthetic, and generally one dimensional as French Lover?!

    I just bought Opus VII today.

    I agree with hedonist in that it smells a bit like French Lover in the opening. Both share a bitter-green blast of galbanum backed by spices. French Lover stays greener longer and the spices are more subtle. Opus VII is more overtly spicy and comes across as fuller and funkier. But it seems to me that the overall concept is similar, at least initially.

    I also agree with Trebor in not understanding how someone could get iris out of Opus VII.

    More later as things develop.

    Wow! Pre-ordering Amouage. That's a hefty blind buy and it takes more guts (not to mention more disposable income) than I have! I sure do look forward to smelling this one though.

    Umm, please see my post above. They do not have it. It is not in-stock and will not be in-stock until the end of May. Right now, it is pre-order only.

    If it was available, I would have it listed as a split.

    This information is from Alejandro @ Min.

    It just became available a few days ago in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia, where I bought mine. Got it at Paris Gallery for the equivalent of $270. It will probably take a few weeks or months to get distributed around the world.

    Look how long it took for Beloved Man in the US. It is finally available at Bergdorf-Goodman, which has the US exclusive for it.

    Thank you Noggs. I was getting scared when I first read that it was similar to French Lover. I sure hope there is more to it.

    This is the usual price for the Opus volumes. The Beloved pair were higher for some reason. I'm happy to see that they haven't raised prices (yet) for the Opus series.

    I can still detect both on my arms this morning. The base of French Lover maintains a slightly sharp greenness to the very end. The base of Opus VII is a tiny bit sweeter, woody and leathery and slightly animalic due to the costus and residual spices.

    French Lover is lean and intellectual while Opus VII is more expansive and seductive. Both drydowns seem rather close to the skin. I'd prefer more projection at this stage, but this behavior is typical of most drydowns. And it has been about 12 hours since I sprayed them. Some probably rubbed off on my sheets and pillow overnight, so I don't want to draw too many conclusions until I give Opus VII a full wearing, which I'll do today.

    Thanks for the info Noggs.

    Some have mentioned a similarity to Opus VI. Are you getting that at all?
