Amouage present the Introductory Sample Set for Men; a collection of twelve miniature samples of the brand’s best-selling fragrances presented in an elegant case. Each eau de parfum has been made using only the highest quality ingredients from around the world. E.N.
The Set Contains:
Ideal for the sophisticated gentleman, the fragrance opens with rose, lily of the valley and frankincense, developing into a heart of myrrh and jasmine. Cedarwood, ambergris and oakmoss base notes.
Cardamom and frankincense open the tasteful scent, transporting into a heart of peony, plum and ylang-ylang for a well-rounded chypre fragrance. The base is defined by leather, patchouli and amber.
A distinctive, masculine scent with top notes of rosemary, red pepper berries and bitter orange leaves. Transports into neroli, jasmine and ylang-ylang accords and a base of patchouli and sandalwood.
Jubilation XXV (2ml)
Mysterious and bewildering, essences of coriander, orange and blackberry meet notes of honey, orchid, clove and gaiac wood, developing into myrrh, oud wood and ambergris.
Infuse your mind with bergamot and lime. Developing into a heart of spicy ginger, orange blossom and nutmeg before settling into a warm aroma enhanced by frankincense, vanilla, pine and sandalwood.
Spicy top notes set the tone, releasing accords of pink pepper, cumin and cardamom before transporting into an oriental heart of myrrh and geranium essences. The base notes add depth and sensuality with leather, musk, oud and patchouli.
Discover basil, mint and absinth accords, blended with a floriental heart of frankincense and contrasting bouquets of rose and lavender. Base notes include oakmoss, leather, tobacco and vetiver.
Pink and black pepper combine with geranium, nutmeg and elemi to create a spicy and woody fragrance. Finishes with a base of tonka bean, musk, cedarwood and frankincense.
Opening with refreshing orange and grapefuit, the fragrance develops into geranium, jasmine and saffron before succumbing to a woody, spicy base of leather, patchouli, musk and cedarwood.
Inspired by chaos and disorder, the spicy and woody fragrance is defined by top notes of bergamot, oregano and pimento berry oil before melting into a heart of amber, frankincense and opopanax and a deep leather base.
Mandarin, saffron and ginger develop into a rich heart with notes of rose, lavandin and frankincense, intensified by a dark, woody base of liquorice, tonka bean and cedarwood.
A rich woody fragrance with a subtle, sweet twist and tones of leather. Sichuan pepper, bergamot, green cardamom are joined by incense, tobacco leaves and tonka bean for a masculine, oriental olfactory experience.

The Amouage fragrance sample collection for men comes in a very well made, handsome box with magnetic closure.
The glass sample vials are well presented with golden caps. The presentation is very professional.
Regarding the fragrances, my favourite is Memoir Man. This is the only sample with black lettering, all the rest are gold.
The absinthe opening (along with pink pepper, that I find I like) demands my attention, and the deepening wood and leather provides contrast as time passes. Almost all of these fragrances have frankincense.
Honour Man has the peppers and geranium. It's more 'feminine' but soon develops with the cedarwood, tonka bean and elemi adding masculinity.
Interlude Man has a pimento berry opening that I don't care for. But once the leather and smoke starts to dominate this becomes far more agreeable. This one takes time for me to appreciate.
Epic Man - a descriptive name! Pink pepper (that I've already said I like), yes and geranium, but the leather and oud make this masculine and multi-dimensional.
Gold - women like this. Quite a floral opening, but once the civet and musk demand attention this goes from pussycat to tiger.
Reflection - I like this, as the pepper gives way to ylang ylang and neroli. I would have expected to like it less, however the patchouli and sandalwood add weight to the fragrance. It has freshness without 'citrus'. I wore this to work and received compliments from a couple of women.
Jubilation XXV - Bewildering is a good description for Jubilation XXV, it is a complex fragrance. Recommended if you like oud!
Lyric Man - the citrus elements aren't so noticeable to me, but the rose is. This one takes even more time to enjoy than Interlude Man as I'm not a huge fan of the pine note. Not one I'd immediately reach for.
Beloved - The grapefruit is good, not sharp as I expected (for me at least). It develops a woody, musky note that's pleasing without demanding your attention.
Fate - I like this one for the liquorice! The opening of ginger and the base that includes tonka bean works for me too. Unlike Memoir Man which was an immediate hit, this one takes a little time, but I really enjoy it.
Journey - On a test strip this smells amazing, but on my skin the pepper, bergamot and tonka almost disappear, leaving me with tobacco. I like tobacco, but it's slightly infuriating that for me the notes that compliment it so well die away so quickly.
Myths. The set description mentions 'Dia', which I did not receive and would have liked to try. However, Myths is a new (2016) fragrance from Amouage and surprises are to be welcomed. From what I've heard, some people didn't like Myths. It has top notes of chrysanthemum. My father used to grow chrysanthemums, so this immediately gives pleasant nostalgic memories. I detect perhaps a hint of rum, but it's the well worn leather and the dry ash base notes that I smell. Like waking up in an old leather chair in front of a fire that's gone out.
A great selection. None of the samples are unpleasant and there are at least two outright winners. If you're curious about Amouage, it's a great way to find your fragrance.
