    Question Which Amouage fits me better? Memoir Man or Myths Man? What color and animal?

    Hello, I want to buy my first Amouage and I have tried samples of both Myths and Memoir. However that was some time ago. I can't really decide which one to buy now and make my signature scent... can you help me figure this out?

    My personality:
    I am very introverted and lonely. I don't like big crowds and prefer to keep to myself. If I know something others don't I often don't even say it. I have dark blonde curly hair and very blue eyes, I am from Germany. I also have dark rings around the eyes and some people told me I look sleepy or like a zombie lol. However that's good because in WoW I like the UNDEAD!

    I am very friendly to others and very forgiving. I respect others and often avoid confrontation. I often daydream about my aims and goals and the future I want to achieve. I think a lot and I can't express emotions well. I am quiet and silent although I can be humorous and funny too. I am not arrogant. I often have doubts and worries about failure and do not think so highly of myself.

    I was also diagnosed like 5 years ago with Asperger, Psychosis, undifferentiated Schizophrenia, the latter of which doesn't exist anymore. So I do have Asperger and Psychosis but also undiagnosed OCD. My biggest problem is I get nervous very easily and become very pessimistic. I also often have dark thoughts and I am actually very aggressive in my mind while appearing reserved and controlled from the outside - in reality, I'm just a loner with repressed feelings and mental illness.

    My hobbies are playing videogames, reading novels, listening to a lot of music and doing a workout every now and then. So I tend to become very pessimistic and agressive, disturbed while trying to control everything I do. I have trouble showing emotions and I don't like people. At home I shut myself in my room and listen to music while surfing the web or researching something.

    Which Amouage would fit my personality better? Amouage Memoir Man
    or
    Amouage Myths Man
    ?

    In your opinion what kind of people wear Memoir Man and what kind of people wear Myths Man?

    BONUS QUESTION:
    Judging by my description of myself, which color and what animal fits me best? (Could it possibly be the color dark green/black and black swan? ^^) or is it the color purple/gold and a red chinese dragon? ^^
    Or something else entirely?

    Aspergers seem to be great collectors, so try them all!

    I'd say Memoir Men

    Memoir Man of course.
    Myths is way more "daring" and not that easy to wear on a regular basis imho.

    Viele Gre!

    im guessing your OCD is responsible for you continuing to make post after post on this same subject, without ever making a decision. I dont know what else to tell you....have given my opinion 2 or 3 times now. Good luck in your search.

    THIS.

    Don't buy a bottle of either one. Buy a decant and wear it for a while in order to find out if it's something you'll enjoy enough to want to own a full bottle of. 5ml should be plenty. That is something I started doing a few years ago, and honestly, I wish I'd been doing all along.

    It's especially important when debating scents you tried a while ago. Here's an example:

    Last year, I tried Bigarade Concentree and I liked it. After I finished the sample, I kept thinking about it. I got to the point where I was thinking about buying a bottle - but then my common sense kicked in. I asked myself "Why weren't you ready to buy a bottle when you were wearing the sample?" So, instead of buying a bottle, I bought a small decant. As soon as I got the decant, I remembered why I liked the scent! But I also remembered why I wasn't ready to buy a bottle. It's great! But it's not for me. I'm so glad I only spent a few bucks on a decant instead of wasting a lot of money on a full bottle that, as it turns out, I'd almost never wear.

    When in doubt, buy a small decant.

    People can help you figure out what fits a certain personality, more or less, but that doesn't mean it'll be a smell you'll love so much you want to wear it... especially not if you're looking for something you'll wear so often it becomes your signature.
