    Haven't tried Myths Man but Reflection Man isn't great overall IMO. A powdery woody floral scent is what I got from it.

    I do recommend trying Dia Man, Epic Man, and Jubilation XXV all of which are better choices compared to Reflection Man.

    They couldn't be more different really so it's hard to choose

    I suspect Reflection Man is more of a crowd pleaser and easier to wear, Myths Man is more strident and uncompromising in a sort of Interlude way.

    A very subjective choice but I voted Reflection

    Amouage is my favorite house....i personally like reflection more, but i think myths is the better done fragrance. reflection probably smells "better" to the masses and is more versatile. Myths is pretty strong, a little stanky, and very well layered. Better visual presentation? Ummm...tie? idk i guess i dont pay a lot of attention to looks.

    Myths has a beautiful presentation. Unfortunately it is an example of beauty being skin deep.
    Reflection takes a clearly masculine scent to the extremes of Sweetness, and comes back victorious.
    Myths lacks a point of view and smells unnatural besides.

    As noted above, they're not very comparable. Reflection is just about Amouage's most accessible scent - I don't particularly fancy it, but it is an easy wear. The same could not be said about Myths, which is absolutely not a safe blind buy. It dries down well, but you've got to get past hours of the harsh opening to get there. It gets compared to Interlude a lot, but I don't see a huge resemblance - Myths is a tougher wear. TBH I'd find Figment an easier wear than Myths - which is saying something!

    Are you sure that Myths is stronger and longer lasting? Last time I sampled them I thought Reflection Man was stronger and longer lasting, not sure.

    And which one smells better in the long run? Which one can you wear for longer periods of time without getting annoyed by it? Which one is better for a signature lifetime scent?

    Reflection Man for me. It's the only Amouage I like. As people say, its a crowd pleaser. The others I've tried are ok, but none made me want to buy a bottle.

    I voted Myths. I recently tested the majority of the men's line, and, Myths was one of my top three (along with Epic and Journey). I suspect, as many have pointed out here, that you will get a lot more votes for Reflection because it is more of a crowd pleasing and easily wearable fragrance. I wore JPG Le Male for many years when I was younger, and, I guess I am just past the phase of that style of fragrance (for now anyway).

    I would rate Reflection Man and Myths Man as the top two Amouage with the rest being a little worse.

    Like this:
    S-Class - Reflection Man & Myths Man
    A-Class - Jubilation XXV & Interlude Man
    B-Class - all the rest (Bracken Man, Memoir Man, Lyric Man, Sunshine Man and so on...)

    Does anyone agree with this rating?

    Having tried both - the former.

    No, but what matters most is what you like, not us.

    Which one did you think had stronger sillage or presence and which one lasted longer? As far as I can remember Reflection Man felt stronger and longer lasting to me. What was your impression?

    I own all of the men’s line, and Myths is my favorite Amouage (with Opus VII a close second). As others have stated, however, it is certainly not a safe blind buy. It undergoes a great deal of development over time (from floral to ash), and I cannot think of any other fragrance that smells like it. Additionally, Myths is significantly stronger and longer lasting than Reflection to me. With that being said, I also enjoy Reflection.

    Voted for Myths, because I feel it deserves more love, and Reflection is a bit overhyped. Love both equally

    This.

    Not very comparable. Only in the sense they both have orris.

    Very different treatments of orris though.

    On the one hand we have a borderline commercial crowd-pleaser with Reflection; on the other we have a profound but challenging artistic statement with Myths.

    I prefer Myths.

    Reflection is very superficial by comparison.

    Well to me, Interlude is like Myths but worse and Jubilation XXV is like Reflection but worse. That's why I put Myths Man and Reflection Man as S-Class above the rest.

    Although I don't personally subscribe to the "signature scent" ideology I would have to recommend Reflection as an everyday scent of these two. I personally could not wear either of them everyday, but, Myths is a much more situational fragrance and less of a crowd-pleaser.

    I enjoy both, but Reflection is simply stunning, lots of depth and longevity and crowd pleasing all at the same time
