This will be my fourth comment, let's see if I can make it less disheartening this time.
I don't own Epic Man, but I've bought some bottlings in the souk over the last few days. The others from Amouage are still waiting for their test on my skin and I wouldn't be surprised if a fragrance of it would remain as a purchase candidate. I usually already sniff the atomizers when the scents arrive, often there is already a lot to smell and the Amouages make me all together very curious.
Epic will probably not be a serious buyer, although I like the fragrance very much.
It is masculine, expressive, peculiar and pleasing, but the prelude ensures that I will not love this fragrance. I have planned to add to my small collection only what convinces me 100%, so to speak starts up and in the course not worse, but at most becomes better. Directly after spraying Epic Man develops a piercing medical note in my nose, so really not good at all.
In this respect I can understand Above's comment on it. Fortunately, it may only take 5 minutes (no stopwatch in use) to get comfortable. If what is now happening would last longer with me, I would be completely thrilled. I find it difficult to name the individual scent components as others here are able to, but of course the incense is clear, I smell woods and also the oud is already present. Very tasty, very strong, spicy and made for a self-confident wearer. Exactly such a thing is missing in my collection, which is rather located in the fresh area. Unfortunately it is already over after another hour. I have noticed that fragrances often do not stick to my skin for so long, maybe this has something to do with it. The durability in general of Epic Man is good no question, but what comes to me after this best phase is significantly weakened. Here I see the oud before the incense. Still a very pleasant fragrance, but in this phase, which lasts for hours until the end, other candidates convinced me more, e.g. Oud from Reminiscence. The latter I found only too feminine, but after wearing it several times I can imagine it very often on me.
All in all, Epic Man makes too much noise for me at the beginning, then I listen to a wonderful story, which unfortunately turns out to be a short story and finally the report just splashes to me.
