    Default Amouage for Spring/Summer

    What in your opinion is the most wearable Amouage for spring and summer?
    One that could be worn every day and in a hot humid climate.
    Most women's scents I tried are too femme for me, except for Jub 25, Memoir and Interlude but I do not see them working in the summer.
    Is there an Opus that might work? Other ideas? Thanks

    Silver is a very pleasant fresh scent, sort of metallic and rosy.

    I really like Silver, especially for warmer weather. Doesn't get much appreciation on basenotes.

    Another vote for Ciel. Epic Man might work in warmer weather haven't had it long enough to try.

    I find Homage, applied very sparingly, works great in summertime.

    Epic Man. It smells clean like a freshly opened container of detergent possibly with some fresh celery. Pretty refreshing.

    The thought of that makes me cringe, but maybe it's just how that projects on my skin, which is essentially just choking me and everyone else out with one spray in the dead of winter.

    Regardless, I'd say Reflection Man is a good option, but it's hard to justify the price I've found.

    Off the top of my head Ubar, Interlude Woman, Gold Man, Homage, Tribute, Memoir Man & Woman, Epic Woman, Opus II and Opus VI all work real well at 30c with high humidity for me. I may have left some out . . .

    I live in Singapore and I wear Dia Man. Recently acquired Amouage Tahani attar and find that the attars work very well too.

    Whilst Epic and Jub lend themselves to cooler whether with a light touch they can certainly be worn in spring/summer, however specifically for spring/summer I would have to say Dia

    Wow, that's a big list. I did think the Opuses might lend themselves to the heat, but I had no idea about Interlude, or Memoir. I will try to sample Homage and Tribute when it gets warmer. I own Gold Woman but it is too 'ladylike' for me, same goes for Ubar which I own and am thinking of letting go of.
    I did test Epic woman in the heat once and all I got was a cloud of cumin..

    Everyone has to try Tribute Attar at least once in their lives...
