Amouage will launch Opus VI, the sixth fragrance in the niche brand's Library Collection (see I, II, III, IV, V). Opus VI focuses on amber.
The notes include Sichuan pepper, incense, bay rum, periploca, cypriol, patchouli, ambranum (synthetic amber note), Z11 (synthetic dry wood), sandalwood and cistus labdanum.
Amouage Opus VI will be available in 100 ml Eau de Parfum.
Well this ones sounds interesting, but why all the synthetic notes??? I love Opus III, so this one will be a must try for me .
I sincerely doubt it has any more synthetic notes than any amber perfume — they are just listing the actual molecules they used, which most companies don’t do.
And yay for them! I wish more companies did this.
I just tried this one the other day while in Oman and it is lovely, highly wearable. I get a sort of rose out of it but perhaps I am wrong. This has the Amouage sillage so be warned but it is part of what I love. The SA sprayed my Amouage goody bag down with it and after a week it still smells like something I’d love to wear.
Needless to say I am on their mailing list and eagerly awaiting info on their yearly sale day.
Thanks for the review!
Just nabbed this in Dubai… if there are requests, it appears I will be here for a while so let me know.
I get woods at first and a hint of sweetness. I smell the amber but its not like Blue Amber. It feels deeper a bit darker. If it were candy, I’d say you burnt it or “caramelized” it. On the whole it feels powdery but not in a sad L’heure Bleue sort of way and perhaps its a vanilla? Oud or things posing as ouds tend to turn plummy on me and at times they are more a rum raisin note (odd I know)… YSL’s M7 on me does that too. I don’t smell the incense but others clearly say they do. Here and there I get hints of patchouli… All of this is in the first half hour and I am sure this beauty will change given time. it’s beautiful, not the rose as I thought it was but still wearable and I swear there’s something floral happening there amid the spices… very much so.
I think I find this one much like Opus III it its being easy to wear. It’s loud but Amouage is and that only means a bottle will last forever. I find that Opus V fights between iris and woody notes and that fight can get a bit tiring.
It’s cool just now and the scent seems fine. We expect a thunderstorm followed by a taste of desert heat… I will experiment with my co-workers noses and let you know how it goes. I imagine this isn’t necessarily something you’d want to work in your garden in but it might due when riding the train through Dubai.
