    Default Next Amouage for me? Suggestions?

    Hey guys,

    So I just acquired my first Amouage. After sampling Honour, Epic, and Jubilation XXV, I chose Jubilation. I LOVE it! That being said, I have read about Memoir man. The notes seem right up my alley (tobacco, wormwood, absinthe).

    What do you guys think about Memoir Man? Should I look at something else? Honour was kind of meh for me, Epic was great, but it reminded me of my Gucci Pour Homme for some reason.

    Memoir is great, really dark green woody scent. Make sure to sample first.

    I am not the biggest Memoir Man fan, though there are many that are... My favorite non-attars are Dia Man, Jubilation XXV, Beloved Man and Lyric Man in that order.
    Current Top Favorites:
    1) Portrait of a Lady original formula (EdP Frdric Malle)
    2) Giorgio for Men vintage/V.I.P. for Men (Giorgio Beverly Hills)
    3) Dia Man vintage edt (Amouage)
    4) Les Nombres d'Or Vetyver (Mona di Orio) - tie
    4) Lalfeorosa (O'dri) - tie

    6) Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz)
    7) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
    8) Tzora (Anat Fritz)

    I do like a lot of it. The whole fragrance is a deep dark mystery. It's smell reflects the story of Memoir Man and Memoir Woman(the alter ego of the man)

    Resonating the fragments of a memoir, this woody and leather fougere fragrance is inspired by the sombre mood of an existential journey. Both alluring and philosophical, this fragrance defies conventions and moves beyond sense and reason.
    Inspired by the decadent mien and genius of the 19th Century French poet, Charles Baudelaire, Amouage embarks on a deep and inquisitive voyage to unlock the unfathomable mysteries that reside within human nature. The Memoir Man seeks to uncover his identity by seeking the underworld where he meets his other self and alter ego, the Black Swan. Represented as the female gender in this story, the Black Swan is Memoir Woman. They are separated and reunited by the memoir they share.

    In Memoir Man, it begins with a seductive green sensation of mint paving the way for a much more intoxicated journey of absinth and wormwood, which opens the door to the underworld of self discovery. This fragrance continues to express the complexity and philosophy of the Black Swan with the very sophisticated vetiver. Like a memoir, the construction of this fragrance is pieced together with contradictory fragments of accords.

    Memoir is my favorite Amouage in the regular line, it's dark, green, smoky and absolutely distinctive.

    If you're going to sample, make sure you check out Interlude Man, it's smoky, spicy and ridiculously powerful.

    I luv the Memoir, it's killer. Unless you've got deep pockets, you're gonna wanna always test drive spendy frags to make sure they work for you. I'd hate to hear that you did something like blind-buy Gold and now you can't stop vomiting.

    Jubilation 25 Women's Version. A chypre that kicks Guerlain Mitsouko's butt.

    Give the whole line a sampling before purchasing a full bottle. My top three at the moment from Amouage are Epic Man, Tribute Attar, and Gold Man.

    Gold Man and Interlude seem like polarizing scents based on reviews but both are fanstastic.

    At the moment Lilydirect and Fragrancenet have the best prices on Amouage.

    Memoir Man is one of my faves from this house. Jubilation XXV and Gold Man are two others.

    Do you own Gucci Pour Homme? I don't find any similarity at all. Epic is excellent, but it smells nothing like a cathedral. It felt green to me. You can buy a Memoir Man sample at Parfums Raffy online. Highly recommended! I'd also recommend Interlude Man if you're picking up samples.

    I do own it. Testing Epic the other day, it smelled somewhat similar to Gucci Pour Homme to me, minus the sweetness and plus something animalic. I don't know why. Maybe it was something from the Honour man that I had on my left arm mixing with the Epic man on my right.
