    Question Which Amouage and what color fits my personality?

    Choose one Amouage and any color that fits me best based on my description.

    I have dark blonde hair and blue eyes, I'm male and in early 20s. I am introverted and rather restrained. I can be friendly and funny but also isolated and abrasive. I can be childish and have dark humor. My main problem is that I can easily be fearful, anxious and neurotic. I even have small compulsions and I rip my fingernails and chew on my lips. There is a lot going on in my head and I have a rich fantasy. I am rather shy especially with girls and I can hardly show emotions well. I have 2 best friends only who endured from childhood.

    I need some alone time everyday to think and recharge energy. I am rather a feelings type of human and I like it when people gift me attention. I did some MBTI tests and I am an INFJ, the rarest personality of all. My feelings are strong but I can hide them well. If I don't feel well I become isolated and abrasive. I usually avoid conflicts.

    My hobbies are videogames, listening to music and reading novels and some strength workout. I like to surf the internet while listening to music or watch YouTube. I also have dark circles under eyes. From the outside I probably look sleepy or sad or anxious. But I can rarely be happy too. I am very friendly though.

    I am also often tense and anxious. Anxiety is my biggest enemy. If too much stress my eyes start hurting and I becomenpassive aggressive. I often think of my hobbies and dreams and of the future when I fulfill these goals. I am rather a pessimist and worry a lot.

    Epic Man. There’s a lot going on, just like the description you gave of yourself. It’s not a reserved fragrance, although you demonstrate a reserved nature (or perhaps hidden). Sometimes, opposition creates a better overall effect. I’m a large guy, with a large personality,and if I wear something too big my overall presence can be too much. Sometimes. Whereas wearing something softer and clean can be more appealing to others. It’s not a hard rule but a general line of thinking that I’ll use for occasions where I’ll be in close quarters with others. Plenty times I wear big booming fragrances, but with thought and consideration. Epic is a fairly strong fragrance but has complexity and could give a glimpse of how you feel inside to other. A sleeper recommendation is Dia Man. At first glance, it’s a soft and unassuming fragrance that smells nice. But if you take time to quiet the outside world and pay attention to it, Dia reveals that it has many layers that are masterfully blended.

    For color, I’m thinking monochrome because you seem interesting. And I love photographing interesting people in dramatic black and white.

    You sound like me

    Epic Man

    To be honest, I couldn't pick one colour. Maybe navy blue, grey, or an earthy brown.
    1. No, never blind buy (I do, but do as I say, not as I do. I'm taking no responsibility for your fragrance gambling).
    2. Get them both. You're a Basenoter and you know you're going to end up purchasing them both eventually.
    3. Yes, it has been reformulated.
    4. Looking for a signature scent? You've come to the wrong place.

    No amount of questions can tell you which scents will smell better to you. You have to actually smell them. This is especially true for things like the perception of color, personality and style. Epic Man comes in a deep green bottle, but it doesn't smell green to me. It smells gold. Memoir comes in a black bottle, but it smells green and gray to me. Maybe you'd disagree, and THAT'S GREAT! That's the point. Only you can know how you will perceive a scent. Only you can know which scents suit you & which don't.

    You've got to smell 'em, and samples can be found online for as little as $4.

    Which Amouage and what color fits my personality?
    Honestly, I probably wouldn't pick Amouage for you. I think you're fixated on the wrong house for what you want.

    Amouage scents tend to be more outgoing and extraverted. Interlude is a center of attention type of scent. Epic is the man in charge. Lyric is the romancer. Memoir is confident but brooding. Jubilation is elegant and rich. It's a winter festival in a bottle.

    For you, I'd choose something fresh or very smooth and not overly sweet that wears closer to the skin and has a gentle, welcoming quality, to offset the fact that you're an introvert with anxiety. I'm an introvert as well (and also an INFJ - the advocate personality type). I find it wiser to match scents to how I want to be perceived. Highlight the qualities you want people to notice.

    On the cheaper end... have you smelled CK One or CK Be? Or maybe Gendarme? Grey Vetiver could be an excellent option. Or maybe Chanel Allure Homme Sport Cologne, though that might be a bit too citrus forward - or it could be perfect.

    On the niche side... Aqua Universalis, maybe Xerjoff Nio, or even Green Irish Tweed. My all time favorite, Castile, could work. And in cold weather, my most recent find, Tabac Rouge, could be excellent. It's like Tobacco Vanille but smoother and calm rather than shouty. It's a quiet, confident "I'm somebody you might want to get to know" kind of scent.

    Another thought: a tea scent could suit you very well. Bvlgari Pour Homme Soir, Gucci Pour Homme II, Murdock Black Tea. Something about these hint at an inner depth of character. They're like the opposite of sporty even though they can be fresh.

    I don't Amouage is the house that matches what you're looking for.
