    The tobacco is so heavy on me that it's what makes me think of Tribute. Anyway, Al Kaaba is a very beautiful scent with a beautiful bottle and a great price

    I had the same impression FISS80, the first time i smelled it, it reminded me of Tribute. It's like they have mixed the Tribute tobacco-oud accord with something sweet and milky. It's the closest i have got to tribute so far.

    Thanks rickbr. Glad to see that I am not alone in sensing the similarity.

    Wow. This is sad, sad news... not just for Tribute, but for the whole line. These are all very special and personal perfumes and, as suggested above, have little in the way of similar releases that come close to their artistry.

    Sure, you will find likenesses (especially within the House of Amouage itself, and the aforementioned Interlude is a great start), but still vastly different; the Tribute EDP might share the fermented fruit accord and the incense smoke of the attar, but is also far sweeter, spicier, and singing in a higher key - essentially more BUSY than the distinct linear trajectory of Tribute. The attar has a tobacco and smoke bouquet that is unrivaled - anywhere. Both are "pungent," but nothing that would make one pass for the other.

    Sorry, but I also find no recommendable similarity between Tribute and Hard Leather, the first being about smokey and animalic (but BRIGHT) tobacco, the second a study (albeit beautiful) and dark and dry leather without the spice and light.

    Damn. F#&% IFRA. With that said, I agree with the suggestions made in the article and in this forum that hat this likely has far more to do with the business practices of Amouage. A new focus on what/where they can sell is clearly more important than maintaining the bar (that they SET) in creating beautiful, trustworthy, and consistent attars to the global market.

    I am getting quite a few messages asking where I got the Tribute. I got it from an obscure store I would not have generally ordered from but they listed a few Amouage. I emailed them asking if they had tribute and the answer was initially no. After they checked their storage they found one. I was unsure of the store but with a credit card I decided to order knowing that I could contest the sale if it went bad. I got lucky... No more messages please!

    3 of the amouage attars in my collection are white-boxed. Tribute is in a brown lacquered box with purple velvet inlay, but it was purchased about 4 years ago. What is the distinction in the box color? (I've also seen the black boxes... but I thought they were only testers)

    Given the strength of Tribute, I recommend grabbing 1ml from somewhere like the perfumed court. This amount will last a surprisingly long time.
    There is nothing else like this marvelous attar

    From what I understand the white boxes are earlier releases.

    They started out with white boxes, then the red/brown ones came along, then the black ones arrived later.
    In my experience, a lot of the red/brown stuff was good but there were problems later in that period, less so with Tribute.
    I've had some decent ones in black boxes but it seems to vary, depending on the individual attar.

    They were over here after the red/brown boxes & were smaller than the red/brown ones, with an embossed design.

    So how can you tell between the reform and the vintage? Which box color should you be looking for to get the unreformed version?

    The brown boxes seem to be the older version.

    I wish I had gotten interested in the attars a couple of years ago, because I would have gotten several different ones and they would last for years. I really wish I had gotten a bottle of the sandal, al andalus, asrar, and tribute and homage.

    I am surprised at the blanket discontinuation of all the Attars - is Amouage going more mainstream?

    I think everyone was taken by surprise. But this is a very sad situation. (I wore Tribute today and it is lovely.) I have to blame the long tenticles of the IFRA mostly. My only question now is that since I love the strength of these scents and the application method, where can we look now for other attars? There are others available from middle eastern houses I am completely unfamiliar with, at prices ranging from a few dollars to ridiculous, samples are not available here and blind buying is such a risk. The situation leaves me dumbfounded, confused, frustrated and just a little bit angry.

    As to Amouage becoming mainstream, maybe so, but Mr. Chong has said he will take Amouage in a new direction. I trust and hope that Amouage will continue to make top tier fragrances under IFRA restrictions, but those very restrictions will offer challenges to all perfume houses. I am afraid we are in a post classic period for fragrances...

    As an interesting experiment, I am going on a date with a middle eastern goddess tonight (she truly is, sigh....) and I will be wearing tribute to see what she thinks. She is a Chanel and bond no 9 girl herself , but loves the sandalwood just as much as I do (and owns several statues made from it at her house and they smell DIVINE). I am interested to see if the tribute attar catches her fancy :-)
