Robin and Marian
I wanted to try the fragrance necessarily, and have therefore ordered me for the time being a filling, but with the firm resolution to purchase a bottle of it, because I thought to myself, this is my Beuteschema.
But first sniff. - Uuii, what comes to my nose. It's spicy, woody, incensey, and very strongly earthy, woodsy. Anyway, I smell that in the first moment.
I immediately think of a dark, very green forest where Robin Hood has to fight the Sheriff of Nottingham's henchmen to free Lady Marian.
So I imagine the perfume that this lady used to wear, back in Sherwood Forest. Since she lived her life as a nun, she was not allowed to smell too feminine, was she.
This is not a perfume for cuddly, flower-loving, soft, dear women, it is something rather for strict, cool, distant beings who "torture" themselves completely alone through life.
So the fragrance is well done, however, it leaves me with a reverberation that has nothing to do with me, because cumin, pepper and cinnamon I like then but rather in the kitchen than to smell it myself.

Wedding in the Wunderwald
The fir trees in the Wunderwald stand so close together that they almost seem like a huge curtain of heavy velvet that continues through the whole view and melts away into the endless in the distance. The passing wind is barely able to move the huge conifers with their mighty roots and trunks like wooden pedestals. Only at the top of the treetops can it successfully leave a dense rustle as it slips through, which always fades away gently towards the sky. The already fallen leaves of other trees, several agitated mosses and broken branches by roaming animals, line the ground of the fir trees like a lavishly embroidered golden brown border.
Here, against this backdrop like that of a time-honoured theatre, it is to take place, the wedding.

Truly "Epic the Green" had to fight for the blessing not only of both parents but also of the relatives for the wedding with his beautiful "Cousin Lyric", also from the noble house of Amouage. The custom in the country requires unrestricted agreement of all family members. After all, the union should last a lifetime. Epic really had to draw on his strength for many a consent. For Uncle Kümmel always had it in the cross and, grumpy as he became, did not like to talk about happy things when Epic visited him. Aunt Rosa Pfeffer, on the other hand, couldn't rub the news under the noses of everyone in town fast enough. She lured her victims into the house with magically scented, homemade jasmine tea and cinnamon, and she skillfully pushed them through the hallway into the beautiful parlor and slammed the door behind her. Then she showered her "guests" with torrents of words, while they turned to the windows with the plant boxes filled with rose geraniums, seeking help. It was quite possible that the neighbours Ambra or Gujak or the old maid Iris peeked through the windows to see whether Aunt Rosa had already served the tea. They could then tell them that they were to be released from their teatime. Rosa had not only helpless victims but also grateful when it came to free tea and gossip. When she was in a particularly good mood, she would serve homemade patchouli cookies with vanilla froth. These, on the other hand, were not given for free. You had to leave some incense nuggets for her, which she then let disappear with a sharp grin into her apron pocket and patted briefly from the outside.

The big day Epic has chosen for its heavy velvet robe in the same green of the fir trees. As he waits in front of them for his lyric, he almost disappears in them. Only through his golden hair or when he moves, he can be made out in the scenery. This is also a challenge for the wedding guests present, who have taken their seats on rows of lavishly decorated wooden benches standing on butter-soft moss and keep him company while waiting.
The fanfares sound, followed by soft music and immediately the eyes turn towards the clearing. A few fairy tale children, adorned with fragrant flowers, happily jump up and down and throw rose petals into the air. While they slowly glide to the ground, the outlines of the proud father with the beautiful bride on his arm behind him can already be made out. Lyric is also wearing velvet. Heavy he moves to her gentle steps over the soft moss. The deep red colour of the robe shimmers slightly. The ebony-coloured hair is pinned up and is still a little covered by the light of the setting sun, which sends a few rays of sunlight through the way out of the clearing. It looks as if an elf has rained a handful of gold dust on the bridal head.
Overjoyed and radiant, Epic receives his Lyric from her father's hands into his outstretched arms.

A wedding like this has not been seen in the Wunderwald for a long time. Fairytale figures in noble robes, the finest food and drink, dancers and fools and wonderful music Finally, the wedding waltz makes it abundantly clear why Epic and Lyric had to find and love each other. Their nobly spicy body scents, with the hearts of exquisite roses and jasmine and the souls of woods, patchouli and musk unite in the dance and wrap the forest in a hypnotic scent dream of green and deep red, with the density of a heavy velvet fabric and the gift to enchant everything, far beyond their entourages. Everyone perceives them, even if they are not in the immediate vicinity. When dancing and making love, the notes intensify even more. The two bodies still smell when other scents have long faded.
When Epic happily falls asleep next to Lyric, he has long since absorbed some of her most intimate molecules with her kisses. He is sure that they are each other's inhalation and exhalation. They have too much in common. A state as if heaven had united them personally.

Short version:
Epic: Initially cool opulence that reminds me a bit of Thalia Sodi's Absolute Amethyst, but here with spicy, peppery notes of caraway, cinnamon dust and rose. Constantly warming with jasmine and wood, softened by ambergris and musk. A blissful finish with patch and incense with a noble unsweet vanilla note. Absolutely (over-)sensual!

Lyric: Just as spicy and strong upbeat as Epic but without the coolness, but more towards the ripe, deep red rose, which is beautifully supported by ylang. Then follows a very similar, warmer and warmer progression with a finish that is almost in tune with Epic. Find the just as (over-)sensual, but also a bit sexier
Lypic, so a pun from their names might call them. For me, these two stand for absolute harmony of scent and a perfect coordination of all the notes used in each case.

Perfumery at it's Best...

I'm off and running...

Dark fairy tales
I live up to my nickname in that dark things frighten me, but fascinate me.
Horror, fantasy, fairy tales and sagas in their original version, the abysses of the human soul - all this makes me shudder.
With horror, but also with rapture
Epic Woman is the fragrant description of this emotional state.
I am blown away, at the same time it almost frightens me, I want to sink into it, I am half disgusted.

I can smell shadows, decaying walls, old forests, the mythical creatures that roam through them in pursuit of a compliant victim.
Ragged sheets after a rabid night of love, sweat and spiced wine.
A fire, somewhere in the night.

I can see Lucy in front of me, who surrenders to the werewolf in the labyrinth and Pan, who hunts the nymphs and gets his hands on one, a vampire whose victim dies in ecstasy.
I wonder what a mixed creature like a centaur could do to you, what the Minotaur would have done if I had run into him in the labyrinth, or what the beauty really did to the beast.
What a feeling it may be to spend a night of love. On a grave.

Here, in Epic, rapture and horror are very close together for me.
What an unusual, dark, sensual, dirty scent, where I really can't think of any opportunity to wear it.

.. ..although... ...while playing catch in nowhere... ..between ancient walls in the twilight. . . . . .and maybe we're not alone in that.

The oriental lover with the cigar afterwards - to spray...
Last year in January I was able to sample this fragrance. More by chance.

I remember it was bitterly cold that day. I had never heard of Amouage, although I have been around the fragrance world for a long time.

The contents of the small tube already looked so rich and intense, really oily and opulent in its golden yellow color.

I opened the cap and: Whoo-hoo! The smell knocked me right into other hemispheres!

Thousands of different scent molecules flew around me without me taking anything out of the little magic treasure or even rubbing it on my skin.

I smelled so many spices, lovely things and exotic-erotic in one pile, it was as if a handsome man first put his charm over me, wrapped in soft velvet and cashmere, then he made me fidget, hospitably poured me a tea.

But, when I let "him" dribble on my skin in fine doses, he did it wildly with me and attacked me like a wild animal, spoiled me and my nose after all art - until I seemed to become completely gaga in the head...

Then finally, some mercy:

For a softer afterplay there was a prelude of plush vanilla cream with a noble steamy cigar afterwards...

He held out until the next shower and reminded me of our first date, always present and without getting weaker. But he became a little more tame and cuddly...

Conclusion: A polarizing, absolutely developing, noble whole blood tale with cream, spice, smoke and also a distinct animal note. This spicy-creamy type also flatters men.
Too much makes it bad, little and carefully dosed, just right - has developed into my signature scent.

By the way, I own the very old version of the fragrance, which was still made in Oman.

Thanks Amouage, for this lover!

The name Amouage didn't mean anything to me with my until some time ago still very limited scent horizon. High priced fragrances were always out of reach for me and still are today And my interest in fragrances, which I can basically not afford, was accordingly also rather low.
But there are Parfumo and many dear members who help to expand the fragrance horizon bit by bit.
And so I got the opportunity to get to know the one or other scent of Amouage from time to time But I confess in my sincere way that the first experiences with Amouage fragrances were rather sobering.
I tried some men's fragrances and was quite disappointed. They all seemed to me very overloaded, very strongly spiced and very dense, thick almost to cut. Unacceptable for me.
Plus ingredients that I don't really get along with anyway. Oud, leather, smoke, animal kingdom. And in a potentised dose, so it seemed. That's exactly the right thing for me oud-leather-animalik-memme, namely to run away...
But as with so many things, there are exceptions. And if these notes fade into the background in a nice way and don't annoy me, then I even find fragrances in this direction very exciting and wearable.

So Epic Woman came to me and I became more and more friends with the fragrance. But the scent didn't make it easy for me either The prelude made me shy away from the start, because it was quite sharp and sharp on me. Cumin and a good portion of pepper. That in connection with smoke and many spices. At first the whole thing seems to me quite cool and repellent.
This difficult top note also lasts quite long until a nice spice is gradually introduced into the fragrance, a little floral also mixes in and softens the abrupt start. From this moment on, the fragrance becomes very pleasant for me. The sharp top note recedes and the scent doesn't challenge me as much as it did at the beginning.
Normally a fragrance is finished for me if it has not opened up to me within a certain period of time. But I also know by now that there are complex scents, where patience and effort are worthwhile.
The basis for which you really have to wait a long time is then for me the most beautiful phase of all. The fragrance has become quiet and is now still warm and spicy, balsamic and almost delicious. I can't get my nose away from the scented place anymore. It is altogether difficult to smell individual notes. Here everything was very closely and skilfully interwoven.

The name Epic is very cleverly chosen here, because the durability and flow are of almost epic width. I have rarely experienced such a persistent fragrance as this among modern appearances. Only the great vintage treasures, many of which have unfortunately already gone under, can do this. 15 hours is nothing at all, on clothes you still have something of the delicious base for days.

Now it turned out that I could test and compare two different versions of Epic Woman.
On the one hand, it is a bottling of the unreformulated version, which shines in all its glory and opulence, and a bottle of the current version, which a dear customer lent me for a while.
Oh, there are differences The current version is more tamed, milder, quieter and less cuddly at the beginning. It's balsamic-spicy much faster than the older version, but loses stamina and sillage.
I'm just a little torn up about what I'm supposed to find better. The long wait for the dreamlike beautiful base, so to speak as a reward, or the faster emergence of the same and the faster fading of the fragrance.
I think I'm leaning towards the former
But in conclusion, I would like to admit frankly and openly that the Amouage brand remains challenging and difficult for me. But at least I could see for myself that I like the Amouage ladies' department much better than the men's department.
Whether a fragrance from Amouage will ever actually move in with me, I don't know yet. But Epic Woman has what it takes. In the older version.
Because Epic Woman works great on men. The flacon in the dark green is a beautiful eye-catcher.

Many thanks to Renata, who made it possible for me to get to know her!

the temptation from the Orient
Epic in summer? Yeah, sure! Why not.
When I feel like it, I wear every fragrance wherever and whenever I want, regardless of whether it usually fits the situation, the season or the time of day.

I got to know Epic in the extra warm and dry summer of 18.
Although its strength, spiciness and dense darkness made it more of an autumn winter, I found it extremely exciting, especially in the summer temperatures. Sensual yes erotic.

The individual aromas developed even more intensively and multi-layered for my sensation in the warmth.
A whole range of aromas revealed themselves to my nose and before my inner eye I saw a golden round tray decorated with a hammer blow, on which there were lots of small piles of spices.
Pepper, cumin, cinnamon, vanilla, the woods and patchouli, incense, deep red rose petals, they are all on the large plate and depending on which direction you turn it, small, invisible clouds rise.
In the background smoky dark tea steams from heavy glasses, and with every moment the intensity of the individual components changes.

Epic is spicy, smoky, warm, darkly mysterious, self-confident and infinitely multi-layered
never crosses the border of the indecent or even becomes vulgar.
Unlike some of the other Amouage fragrances, you can see its quality, I find it very high quality and luxurious.

Yes at any time of the year, but still not at any time.

We're connected by a kind of love-hate relationship. There are times when I can't open its heavy shutter for months and the thought of the peppered clouds really frightens me off.
And there are days like today when I can hardly wait for the precious treasure to unfold and for me to immerse myself in all its facets

Fragrances from the Silk Road
Hey guys :)

Today I come to Epic Woman of Amouage. Which means "epic" or rather "epic woman, or epic woman" or something similar. Before I freake out here because of the term "epic" and drive everyone away, I'll tell you something about the fragrance and where the inspiration for this fragrance came from.

It is about the so-called Silk Road, which was a road (or road network) for caravans transporting precious goods between the Mediterranean and the East, especially between China and Arabia. Silk was the main product traded, hence the name of the street. Of course there were a lot of other luxury products like rare spices, precious metals, woods, oud, tea and flowers like roses. Since the fragrance was inspired by this street, some of the goods traded at that time are also available as fragrances in this fragrance.

Oh and "epic" also has a different meaning in the roleplaying world than "epic". It stands for superior and rare items that have many magical properties or enchantments... but since this goes back to the nerdy and I don't want to annoy you with further details for once, I'd rather not tell you further and say instead that you should let yourself be enchanted by this scent when I'm talking about enchantments :D

The fragrance:
The fragrance begins with spices that smell good, but I could have done without the cross agent. Well, but there are a lot of other beautiful scents that make the scent beautiful and make you almost forget the cumin. There is for example a nice tea note, which can be smelled soon and which, of course, I like :)
I also smell light, sweet notes of jasmine (I don't smell the cinnamon), a light peppery note and flowery roses.
Not long, and the spices become a little softer, the cumin hardly smells you then really, which particularly pleases me thus.
The middle part of the fragrance is basically like the beginning, only that some scents become weaker or stronger. As mentioned, the spices become softer, but can still be smelt well. The tea is now a little better to smell, and while it seemed like green tea to me at the beginning, it smells more like black tea to me now, well, a little spicier than perhaps, which is due to the spices here. Also the roses can now be sniffed out better, which makes the fragrance even more oriental. New, however, are the resinous fragrances, especially the incense, which becomes more and more intense and smells really great.
A little later the spices will fade away a little more, which makes the fragrance even softer, especially with the aforementioned resinous incense. Roses are still present, the tea weakens a little and the sweetness of the fragrance is now a mix of jasmine and amber, where the amber becomes stronger in the course of time and the jasmine gradually fades away. Then I also smell woods, namely the gentle, beautiful scent of guaiac wood, which in my opinion has a slightly more beautiful scent than cedar, for example, as well as oud, which in this scent is almost untypical for Amouage but rather weak. The later base is more resinous-woody and sweetish by the amber.
All in all, Epic Woman is an excellent and beautiful fragrance that is definitely worth testing.

Sillage and the shelf life:

The Sillage is strong, the scent is good to smell. But in general it seemed to me as if this Amouage was a little bit weaker than most Amouage fragrances... well, that's not bad, because the Sillage is still good!
The shelf life is, as already expected, quite good, so that the fragrance loosely lasts more than twelve hours.

The bottle:*
The jade green bottle is rectangular and slightly bloated. On the sides, it looks as if it has been slightly pressed in. On the front you can see as usual the elaborate and gold-plated Amouage logo, the fragrance name can also be seen on the gold-plated neck. The lid has a typical oriental design and therefore looks exotic. It has also been gold-plated and has a green Swarovski stone at its tip. A very nice bottle with a great color.

So, hm... so I think that the fragrance smells exactly like you can imagine the goods from the Silk Road, which served as inspiration for this fragrance. Spices, tea, roses, everything that was transported at that time is available, at least everything that could be processed into a fragrance. I myself would have called the name of the fragrance different (for example Silk Woman, silk for silk and silk for the Silk Road), but well. I think it's nice that the fragrance undergoes a great fragrance development and changes from strong spicy to soft resinous, so that you find a nice and varied fragrance in every phase of the fragrance.

The fragrance smells wonderful and in my opinion can be used very well in autumn and winter (actually even in spring) both during the day and in the evening. Therefore I would definitely recommend to try the scent!

And that brings me to the end, of course I could write something about roleplaying games and related "epic objects", but I don't want to be like that and wish you a nice evening :)

Love at second glance
When I first tested it, I thought that I would never call this fragrance my own. Way too loud and pompous with a Monster Sillage. I was wondering where you could wear something like that.
So I copied him and dedicated myself to other fragrances.
About a year later I had a little more "taster experience" and dared to approach him again. I tested it every day for a week, yeah, even at work :-D
And I have to say, it's true love.
According to the motto: what lasts long will finally be good.
I love that scent, I've never smelled anything like it.
For me it is a deep, dark and earthy scent which nevertheless has a certain freshness and becomes more and more beautiful and softer from hour to hour. Still clearly perceptible after 8 hours.
Really with memoir and loukhoum my dearest treasure among my scents.
It's worth every cent! :)

Epic is epic :)
The rose came out first and I loved it (and I'm picky about rose scents), then the other florals became apparent. They blended so well I could not say that any one dominated, except possibly the wonderful rose. The cumin and cinnamon balance with the flowers like yin/yang; the incense/smoke aura grounded the whole flower/spice party. This is FBW.

This is a truly epic sweet perfume with lots of spices, a bit of rose and oud, and a bowl of incense. Fall and Spring are ok besides Winter.
