Harmony inspired by chaos
After months I seize very gladly again the opportunity and report back to the latest release from the house Amouage: Interlude 53.

Now the first officially declared Extrait de Parfum gets in and of all things Interlude is the chosen one. So we are not talking about a flanker, but a new fragrance concentration.

What does the "53" stand for?

This represents the percentage of fragrance oils in this perfume.

And why "53" and not "50" or "56"?

That is the maximum amount that could be achieved in the manufacturing process and still be within certain "Anti Allergens Standards".

In addition, the maturation processes Maturation and maceration "played" and the entire process ultimately extended to about 6 months. Most fragrances probably mature only a few weeks.

Maturation is the maturation of the fragrance concentrate prior to the addition of alcohol.

Maceration is the maturation of the finished blend, i.e. after alcohol has been added.

The Interlude DNA is still unchanged and immediately after spraying we experience a very loud aromatic hit of spices - decidedly strong and intense!
Oregano and allspice create a fabulous beginning. First smoky puffs are also noticeable and in the midst of this explosion I can also detect a tangy, hesperidic freshness. In the further development we dive into the warm and deep soul - balsamic and resinous impressions join and also the smoke has already fully spread.
Woody-earthy notes complement this strong oriental image.
What harmonious chaos!

The increased concentration enhances this spectacle and seems at the same time rounder and more accomplished. Nevertheless, the differences are difficult to identify even for experienced noses.

Interlude 53 is in my eyes a successful experiment and as an Amouage / Interlude lover, it is definitely worth a test - a bottle, however, not if you already own an Interlude.

I wish you a happy and healthy new year 2021!
