Not for Everybody? But definetly for me!
For a long time I have been racking my brains as to whether I should now dedicate a comment to the Beloved Man, or whether I should let it go, as many fragrances have been fiddled with, which I cannot remember from the smell in their original form. But especially those who are looking for a beautiful summer fragrance with a long shelf life, for whom a Sunshine Man might be too heavy and not refreshing enough, might find what they are looking for here.
As far as durability is concerned, we have a typical Amouage in front of us. Apply in the morning, go to work, take a shower afterwards, go shopping and then in the evening again with your nose to the sprayed area and it still hasn't warped. The Sillage doesn't play in the league of an Interlude or a Sunshine, but it's not a fragrance that's so quiet that you'll only be noticed on direct body contact.
Already in December I got myself a bottling of the fragrance and when I smelled myself blind through my collection, he always belonged to the best, the best. Last month the time had come and the bottling was drawing to a close. One last splash on your left hand and enjoy this wonderful loud sound again at the beginning. I feel as if I am entering a swimming pool, it is hot and it tickles my nose a little. Through the open roof windows one gets a fresh breeze in between, which cools the skin a little. From a little distance I perceive the scent of fine oranges, which with this light note develop into a very tasty, refreshing, summery scent. I can understand, however, that one does not like the garish, slightly tingling sound in the nose. But about an hour later it becomes calmer, sweeter, spicier and reminiscent of the Reflection Man. This could be the time when some people see parallels in the designer scent of Paco Rabanne, but the Beloved doesn't seem so monotonous and fresh to me. In general, I have the feeling that the perfumer who worked for Amouage wanted to achieve with this perfume a balancing act between niche and mainstream, which I think he did very well. Over the hours, the fragrance weakens more and more until the next morning you can only sniff a hint of this sweet-spicy fragrance. In any case, the perfume didn't let me go, so I finally bought it this month.
The fact that Beloved Man is not among the Top 10 Best Pantydropper Fragrances will either be due to its own top note or to the price, which with 171 Euro upwards certainly does not fit into every budget. He was worth every cent to me personally and I am happy to have discovered him quietly and secretly for myself. He's earned a permanent place in my collection.
