Amouage is definitely one of my favourites when it comes to luxury fragrance houses. It is an Arabian fragrance house originating from Oman. The perfumers at Amouage infuse home-grown ingredients from the region into their fragrances. These ingredients make for the deepest, most elegant and unique scents mixed with other eclectic components.
I recently gifted my man Epic Man from the house of Amouage, and I have started to adore this scent with time. The inspiration was two-fold: the legendary Silk Road and Puccini’s Turandot opera. This whole inspiration is set in China based on a tale involving a Persian princess and a deadly riddle.
A man’s scent says a lot about his personality. And just like the ladies' version of this scent screams femininity, Amouage Epic Man emits a strong, masculine message. It contains some of the most finely-sourced ingredients, which all work together to form the perfect oriental, woody scent.
The Keynotes are:
- Top Notes: Pink Pepper Berry Essence, Frankincense, Cumin, Cardamom Essence, Saffron, Mace Essence, Nutmeg, Myrtle Essence.
- Heart Notes: Geranium Essence, Myrrh Essence.
- Base Notes: Oud, Sandalwood, Patchouli, Leather, Frankincense, Cedarwood, Musk, Castoreum.
This fragrance is predominantly spicy with top notes of pink pepper berry essence, saffron, nutmeg, cumin, and cardamom. It has base notes of sandalwood, patchouli, frankincense, musk, oud and leather. They all give the scent a real expensive feel. All of them make for a manly, distinctive fragrance that can fill a room. Moreover, just like the female version, a little bit of this goes a long way. You don’t have to spray much to get maximum effect. The fragrance has quite a high price point, but you only need to use it a little at a time because it's so potent. This means it’ll probably last a lot longer than another scent that isn’t as concentrated. Overall, I can feel the extreme performance, sillage, and uniqueness.
For myself, I love the female version of this fragrance, Epic Woman. Epic Woman represents an endeavour run by strength and ambition, while the male fragrance, Epic Man is a compass on the Silk Road.
