Today we are discovering the perfume Overture from Amouage. Existing for both men and women, this spicy oriental is sure to awaken your senses.
Overture is a woody scent inspired by man’s solitude in the world. Using dramatic and bold ingredients Amouage delivers a fragrance of confidence. Created by Karine Vinchon-Spehner, a French perfume creator. Overture is composed of contrasting raw materials, which reflects the alternation of rhythms in life and opera.
Yes, you heard correctly. The perfume's name, Overture, defines the opera's opening. A short piece that alternates slow and fast rhythms to set the right mood for what follows. This is why Amouage decided to use such contrasting raw materials.
Let's take a closer look at the fragranced juice.
With top notes of Grapefruit, Cardamom, Cumin, Ginger, Nutmeg, Saffron & Cognac accord. It sets the tone for the following notes. The acidic, spicy top note is balanced to perfection. Spiking your interest as soon as you smell it.
Following are the heart notes of Cinnamon, Lentisk, Benzoin, Ciste Labdanum, Patchouli, Geranium & Myrrh. Just like the heart, they pulse through the perfume. Giving an earthy floral note to the fragrance.
And last of all come the base notes of Sandalwood, Smoky Leather, Clary Sage, Animalic accord & Incense. These notes are the everlasting, smooth and sensual notes that stay with you all day. They give the perfume a round, classy touch.
Amouage designed the bottle in a simple but effective manner. Through the frosted glass, we can perceive a brandy-coloured blend. The bottle is decorated with a crowned magnetic bronze cap and a metal plate with the Amouage logo. Below are the pictures of Overture Woman (left) and Overture Man (right).
Amouage Overture Man is a long-lasting boost of masculinity. With its oriental style, the perfume is the final touch to your outfit. Overall, I find it to be a perfect balance. Not overpowering, this perfume will accompany you on your journey. May that be a professional meeting, a night at the opera or a simple day out. I would recommend this perfume for the winter or evenings due to the warm notes inside.
