Simply nr.1
For over 1 year, I have discovered the fragrance world and been active on Parfumo almost daily. I have Reflection Man, Amouage and Creed discovered ... things that used to be foreign things for me.

Since knowing Amouage, I have in my collection seven fragrances from them and one is Overture, made in Oman. It is a "boozy" so called fragrance with super cognac, grapefruit and many other notes - a creation of Karine Vinchon-Spehner who also made Boundless, which is already ordered.

For me, after 1 year of experience with fragrances from all sorts of brands it is the #1 ... equal or better than my ever favorite, the Black Phantom.

Starts out extremely special, with a mix between bitter and fruity and dark and then goes into the cognac wood barrel direction, anyone who doesn't like that ... won't like Overture either.

This fragrance has everything that is important for me in a fragrance: darker side, performance, unique factor, completeness and quality content. I know that because of the price, it's not as easy to test as the other Amouages so probably that's why it doesn't get as much love as the others.

It's quite nice when after a long journey in fragrance world, to find such a creation and understand that it was what I have been waiting for long. My Made in Oman version smells much darker than the Made in UK and I am extremely excited to continue enjoying my fragrance

Until now I did not meet any fragrance which immediately described and introduced itself after the first initial spraying. Well, this one did it, quite well. I was sitting in a pub full of expensive antiquities and wooden furniture, where the hanging trophies on the wall, just like the map of the World celebrated the respectful hunting results of the noble Lords, members of the elite Club.

The air was hot and dry during this shiny Saturday afternoon. As the lobby's air was filled with tobacco smoke and the smell of the freshly opened old cognac barrels, I felt like an elephant was sitting on my chest, it was so hard to breath inside. I wanted to find out what was that Sacred scent in the air, blown inside my nose by the wind opened door at the entrance. A middle aged, not so well shaved man in a worn out and old fashioned jacket stepped in the lobby. His boots were overworn, and I noticed a small hole on his leather hat. For some reason I felt I have to speak with this man but it was impossible to reach him because the place was crowded and I could barely move.
As I was getting closer, he took out a strange object from his pocket on the table in front of him. He noticed me, and without saying a word he ordered me to take a seat.

- Relax, he said.
- Thank you, Mister.

As he was observing the strange object I started to feel some vibration around us, and the journey begun...
If you ever tried or owned Guerlain's Bois Mystérioux or Songe d'un Bois d'Été - then you traveled with me on the same bus. The opening reminded me on the above mentioned fragrances, but still, I immediately felt that this is on a higher level. The quality spoke for itself, not only because the notes are more rounded, but also because of the fact that in 30 degrees, after 4-5 hours of a half (yes Ladies and Gentlemen, a half!) spritz on my hand the skin was still shining, like it was covered with liquid gold.

After 4-5 hours when the top notes are calmed down (I could not feel any citrus notes), well then comes the real magic. Myrrh, benzoin, Resin and labdanum marriage as the base DNA of all Amouage fragrances - but in a totally different level. I thought that something got wrong with my nose as I could not feel the middle notes after 3-4 hours, but I had the exactly same experience twice. That means, after 4-5 hours the cognac note slowly came on the top, and after 6 hours it was dominating above the other notes. This was "The note which overtook and controlled the other notes in harmony."

The cognac note. This is not the classic cognac note you can smell after pouring and drinking from the glass. This is the cognac on the bottom of the glass, forgotten on the table for a few days, got dried and caramelized. This is exactly the same note I can feel in this creation.

Is this a groundbreaking fragrance? No, surely not, especially if you have already tried Interlude, Jubilation for example. But does it mean that it is not a good fragrance? Of course not! The magic of this blend is that it kept the base Amouage DNA but on the top something new, seriously high quality was added. And this justifies the high price of bottle.

Overture Man
Notes: Cognac, Myrrh and Sandalwood

Overture Man has become my favorite from Amouage. A true masterpiece blended to perfection. Charred Woods with cognac poured on top and Myrrh with Vanillic Sandalwood drydown. Very Intoxicating, Sophisticated, Elegant and Classy.

Initially pungent and animalic herbal-spicy, a gently boozy, oriental spicy-resinous Fall fragrance, on a dry, smoky leathery-woody base.

Boozy, floral, woody. Dries down to a burning cigar, very strong smoky and woody accords. A work of art, but not the most pleasant.

It starts like I am opening the drawer where I keep all the spices in the kitchen. Then myrrh and Cognac start to stand out. Great quality.

The highest quality among all Amouage. A sacred, resinous blast rounded with a hint of vanilla, sandalwood and cognac note.
