Perfume Shrine worships at the altar of the Amouage brand and we have already reviewed Jubilation 25 and Ubar on these links. Christopher Chong, creative director of Amouage, presents the two new fragrances of the Omani uber-luxurious brand, Epic for Women and Epic for Men. With a fusion coming directly out of the Silk Route, the fabled course from China to the West through Arabia, the two new fragrances incorporate traditional Middle-Eastern notes of oud and frankincense, as well as tea and Chinese flowers representative of the Far East.
Epic for Women is a floriental that incorporates warm and cool notes, such as cumin and tea, with the rich oud base that Amouage is not cutting corners on. The scent is firmly focused on incense with reportedly a surprising, almost mentholated lining throughout!
Notes for Amouage Epic Women:
Cumin, rose, cinnamon, geranium, jasmine, tea, amber, musk, incense, sandalwood, patchouli, vanilla, iris, aloeswood/oud.
Epic for Men is a deep, woody oriental evoking imperial splendours of past civilisations.
Notes for Amouage Epic Men:
Pink pepper, cumin, cardamom, saffron, mace, nutmeg, myrtle, geranium, myrrh, aloeswood/oud, sandalwood, leather, incense, cedarwood, musk, castoreum.
The two flacons for Amouage Epic reflect the well-known design of the brand now interpreted in a luminous imperial green, the colour which is thought to protect from evil in the East, decoaretd with a Swarovski crystal. Soon at select boutiques!
