    "I'm going to take a guess here that it will have notes of sun-bleached driftwood, ambergris, hot sand, coconut and hot dogs. Well, maybe not hot dogs. How 'bout seagull feathers? The intense version will most likely have Steven Seagull feathers."
    Now that's funny.

    ^Amouage doesn't do intense versions or flankers..

    Looks like an Estee Lauder product from the 90's. The font and the colors. Shudder.

    Google translates that entry into "Beach Hat" for me, & still no mention of notes. Straw & dried flowers, perhaps?

    In all honesty, Beach Hut struck me as a weird name for a Fragrance. I know what a Hut is, but when I see the word Beach Hut, I automatically think of Pizza.

    "What are you wearing?"
    Me " Beach Hut"
    "You're wearing Pizza Hut?"
    Me " No, Beach Hut. Its the name of the fragrance."
    "Pizza Hut?"
    Me " No, Beach Hut."
    "Beachnut?"
    Me.. For the last f**king time, B-E-A-C-H H-U-T.

    Can'y wait to smell it though. Sounds like an Aquatic right off the bat. Last Amouage fragrance I sprayed was Sunshine man, and it's probably still projecting in the room I sprayed it in. Crazy longevity.

    Normally, Amouage deals in the illusory and existential. Guess they decided their customers want a theme built around something tangible. It lacks imagination - I just think of the Ciel Woman ads.

    Hope it smells good!

    Normally Amouage doesn't do Beach frags either. Flankers might not be far away.

    If they made a fragrance named 'Bleu Night Savage Aqua Island Intense NY Splash Of Lemon Oud' I would buy it sight unseen and also make it my avatar. Just because.

    And yes, the Basenotes forum reactor would go into meltdown.

    True. It's impressive the number of launchments on the niche side when compared to the designer side each year. It seems the trend is quantity and price over quality. They are even entering the flankers game. Designer is becoming the new niche (?).

    I know what you mean. To me, Amouage has always conveyed not only a sense of luxury, but also seriousness and, I guess, dignity. "Beach Hut" does detract from the dignified image I have of Amouage, to some degree.

    That said, it helps that 'Beach Hut" is part of a different collection, and not part of the main line. At least, I can rationalise it on that basis.

    From a commercial/marketing perspective, it's a strong signal from the company that the Midnight Flower collection is all about "playfulness" and "quirkiness" (or that's the message they are sending to me). I must say "Sunshine," "Bracken" and "Beach Hut" are all scents and names that convey an outdoorsy, lighter vibe. In direct contrast to the conceptual seriousness of the main collection.

    I would like to think Amouage is above such things - but - could this be a direct head-to-head battle for niche market share/dominance given Creed's imminent release of Viking? The timing is very interesting!

    Yes. l was imagining sun-bleached woods, hot sand & sun lotion, which would have been right up my street, but this is disappointing.

    l like the box BTW, the bottle not so much.

    Imitation... talk about truth in advertising. Amouage have really gone off in the weeds.

    Clayton from the blog What Men Should Smell Like ( http://whatmenshouldsmelllike.com/home/ ) tried Beach Hut and had this to say on Instagram:

    "It sounds frivolous and fun but it's not just a pretty face. It opens with a fresh blast of greenery aka galbanum and mint before heading down the fougere path. The finish is something very woody and dry-amber."

    So not beachy at all I guess.

    Hah, that would be great. I used to love that stuff when I was a kid...for the 25 seconds before it lost its taste.

    As for Beach Hut, the name is ridiculous but it if smells good, it smells good. I get the feeling they are losing their way, or at least purposefully bushwhacking another path towards the mainstream jungle, Chong with machete in hand. Opus X was the last thing I found "Amouage-y". Myths is ok.
