    Default Amouage sample pass - Men & Women (CONUS)

    The house of Amouage is one of my very favorites, so let's share some scents & have some fun! There are four different groups of carded samples to choose from & we'll start with 4 participants in each group. These are powerful scents & a little goes a long way, so a spritz or two should do! Oh, and all are easily unisex, so don't let the "Man" or "Woman" designation deter you from joining in on any particular group.

    Please have 50+ posts, be a member prior to 3/1/13 & CONUS only to participate. Enjoy your sniffs, post your thoughts on each & pass to the next person in your group.
    Many thanks to Rebecca from The Perfume Shoppe for assisting me in our selections!

    So who's in??

    Group 1: Lyric Woman, Gold Woman, Ubar, Interlude Woman, vintage Gold Woman & vintage Ubar
    Group 2: Jubilation 25, Dia Woman, Epic Woman, Memoir Woman & vintage Ubar

    I have dipped my toe in Amouage, but I'd love to participate and see what everyone else thinks. Could you please put me in group #1. I have a decant of Lyric but not the others. I'll be out of town from May 11 - the 24th, so put me in whichever position you think would work. Thanks!! I look forward to everyone's reviews!

    I surrender.
    After your generous Lyric sample and Ubar recommendation, how about Group 4? I'd like to see what their masculine scents are like. Will I be man enough to carry them off??

    Looking forward to reading the others' reviews.

    Thanks Genie Jeanie. This is some pret-tay classy stuff.

    Thanks Genie Jeanie, though my analysis and description of fragrances is a bit amateur I may chime in with some thoughts. I'm a fan of Amouage but saddened to read that they may have fallen foul of the "R" word. Looking forward to everyone's views.

    Any thoughts or fun anecdotes you'd care to send our way will be welcomed!

    Unfortunately, that "R" word is a harsh reality for a lot of our treasured scents. The only pre-reformulation Amouage I have are a few precious mls each of Ubar & Dia. Though the scents have changed, I still find many of them to be quite complex & above average in quality.


    There are still several openings waiting to be filled! With all the talk about Amouage going on over at the Men's Forum, I thought there would be more interest in trying these out.

    Guys? Anyone??

    I would love to be included in the sample pass if I may?
    I haven't tried anything except what I assume to be Gold Woman -vial was only labeled Amouage(Glorious! totally whoops Chanel #5 for top place in Uber-Elegant Aldehyde-Floral-Incense.Wow!)
    I would like to try some of the other feminines in Group 2 by preference.Please?
    Thanks for hosting this sample pass Genie Jenie!

    May I join Group 1? I'm really curious what post-reformulation Gold smells like, and have not smelled Interlude. Can't recall Ubar, either.

    Bookworm, I'm quite happy to add you to the group. A way for me to say thank you again for all the wonderful smellies you sent my way!

    30 Roses, Absolutely!!!!! I've mooched off of so many of your passes in the past. It makes me happy to finally send a couple of scents your way in return.

    Thanks, Genie Jeanie!

    I've decanted a long vial of pre-2010 Amouage Gold woman and am sending it to SaNielsen today to sample and then add back to the packet of samples to mail along, so Group 1 can compare it with the most-recently-reformulated version.

    How generous, 30 Roses! It was a real treat to test your sample in PerfumedLady's aldehydics pass, so I know Group 1 will enjoy comparing both formulations. Thank you!

    You've inspired me to provide a pre-reformulation scent as well. Hopefully I can squeak out enough little dabs of my original Ubar to add some to each group. (I see that there's one up for sale again on ebay. *sigh*)

    Oh, gosh.....I've been SOOOOOOOO curious about this house. Have not yet tried any but they all sound so sumptuous and extravagant. And the beautiful bottles. Very intriguing.

    I'm a little hesitant, given the difficulties I had getting through the KM samples in a timely manner. But maybe if I could be put down as the last person, so that I don't hold things up for everyone else?? I think I'd probably be more into trying the masculines.

    Welcome, Kayley! Of course you are welcome to join the sampling! Group 1 filled now.

    Stacey, I would love to have you with us too! Taking care of family is a #1 priority, so the pass can wait for you if if the need arises. ((hugs)) Groups 3 & 4 are the *masculines*, so I'll tuck you into #4 for now. Let me know if you prefer Group 3 instead.

    The packages will go out Tuesday morning. Thank you to everyone for your support!!

    Just wanted to take this chance to pop in and thank our very thoughtful and generous host Genie Jeanie for doing this pass. I don't believe Amouage pass was done before, thought there is plenty of interest in the opulent offerings of this no less opulent house. I can't wait for the fun to begin.

    As much as I'd love to try Epic Man, I've already smelled two from that group versus one of #4 so I'd like to join group 4 if possible.

    Thanks!

    Wonderful!! Thank you for including me. And for the hugs. I'm fine with either Group 3 or 4. If I could be the last participant in the group, that would be great.

    EDIT: Ohhhhh.....I just read the Lucky Scent descriptions of the Group 4 Amouages and I'm SO EXCITED to try them!!!!
