Benzoin and Flowers. And that's a good thing.
My first impression upon applying Amouage OPUS III was that it was very similar to OPUS I. That belief was swiftly defeated, however, as the perfume developed and settled down. It did waft briefly of old books in libraries, so I was happy and a bit relieved to see the papyrus note listed in the hierarchy--I was not simply imagining the similarity!

OPUS III swiftly takes leave of the library and dons a peridot green silk sheath dress and stilettos before going out for a night on the town. She's too well-behaved to hit the clubs, so I'd say that her date lands her in a fine French restaurant where she spends the evening slowly savoring her meal and sipping champagne.

The overall feeling is sleek and golden, and the most prominent note to my nose in this composition is benzoin, which I happen to love, so naturally this beautiful blend appeals to me. Ambrette, also a favorite of mine, is no doubt working its magic here. But I must confess to being altogether unable to tease out most of the many notes of this blend. The florality is undeniable--it's just that they are woven together so that I cannot pick out any individual flowers. I would have guessed narcissus, but it's not listed among the notes.

Anyway, details, details. Who really cares what's inside? OPUS III smells wonderful. The closest comparison I can come up with is probably NEJMA VI plus a bunch of flowers. Which is just to say, in a word: benzoin.
