French DNA in an oriental way!
Elegant and sophisticated, Journey Man sets a new level of good taste, a classic-modern from the moment of his birth.
Meeting Amouage Journey Man was love at first sight. Before I noticed the olfactory pyramid, I tested it in a perfumery while studying a few other brands. The meeting was shocking.
A perfume so sensual, masculine in the true sense of the word but also lush, without sharp edges or dark shadows, I was rarely allowed to try. The second thing that instantly fascinated me was the fact that it pulls its branches from the trunk of a french masterpiece perfumery ... Chanel Egoiste. While Jacques Polge has masterfully executed the combination of tobacco, rose and cinnamon, creating a cult fragrance that deserves its glory, two other big names... Alberto Morillas and Pierre Negrin later manage to elevate the woody-spicy scent to another rank , keeping the same dry tobacco from Egoiste but rounded by pepper, neroli, cardamom and juniper, the end taking an oriental turn given by the incense, the cornerstone of the Oman house. The two perfumes are totally different but share similar DNA that would translate into luxury, opulence and attitude, even arrogance.
Once again, the two perfumes, although they have a common point, the dry tobacco, not the sweet one from Tom Ford, each follow different paths.
The presentation proposed this time by Amouage for Journey Man reflects what the perfume conveys. Expires sumptuousness. Performance is typical, long lasting. Longevity over 10-12 hours, good projection. It is suitable to be worn at special indoor events but it works beautifull from my point of view even during a walk in the middle of autumn.
Who can wear it? Anyone as long as they know how to say anything no matter what, to anyone and at any time while maintaining class or character.
