Boundless is a burst of joy, a fleeting euphoria, translating the vertical tension that empowers those who want to enclose in their hands the immensity of the world. This ardent and vivacious energy echoes that of sunlight bouncing off the dewy leaves of the jungle, flickering in rays through a flower-studded canopy and grazing rainbow-barked trees before vanishing amongst gnarled and misty-kissed boughs.

Woodsy, green, and freshly smoky, this scent combines classic Amouage opulence with uniquely serene lushness
Meander explores the exhilarating feeling of happiness in a land of fog, lush green mountains and running streams. Drawing inspiration from the Sultanate's southernmost Governorate during the monsoon (Khareef) season, Amouage creatively translated the surreal fog using frankincense and smoky vetiver, the rich greens with cypriol and jonquille, while its caramel-colored mud is brought to life with earthy sandalwood, carrot heart and orris root notes.
The Fragrance opens to bold notes that are starkly contrasted by the citrusy, spicy and aromatic freshness of Grapefruit, Saffron, Cardamom, Cumin and Ginger. As it evolves, it reveals a softer heart of resinous floral notes crowned by Myrrh and Geranium, giving this creation a sophisticated edge, but as it matures, Overture Man unveils a truly timeless essence of smoky woodiness from Frankincense that engulfs its wearer in mystery.
Karine Vinchon-Spehner is a French perfumer based in Grasse. Inspired by nature and exotic locales, she creates expressive, exotic scents and is known for using challenging and unusual ingredients.
Perfume composition is like painting to Karine (who is also a painter), an emotion driven process.
“The name of the perfume, Overture, speaks about the opening of the opera. It’s a piece that alternates slow and fast rhythms to set you in the mood of what follows. That’s why I used some contrasted raw materials, to reflect this alternation of rhythms.”
Overture Man conjures a tale of a gentleman, dressed for an elegant evening in a dinner jacket accented by a moiré silk cummerbund and bow tie.
He takes his seat in the audience of the opera house with great poise and eagerly waits for the performance to begin, but before the orchestra finishes the Overture, a mysterious stranger gently taps his shoulder.
He rises from his seat and disappears into the darkness with nothing left of him but his bow tie on his seat and the enticement of his scent.
Material is a paradox - through materiality, it evokes immateriality, teaching us to look beyond appearances and that what matters is often unseen; an experience akin to standing in a grove and descrying in the sweltering shade a multitude of textures and manifold hues of wood, leaf and bark; all coming together into one.
"Material is all about Vanilla Absolute, one of the most emblematic natural substances used in perfumery. In this fragrance, the star ingredient possesses a dual personality, presenting both a comforting side and a leathery, animalic facet; constantly shifting between innocence and wildness." - Cecile Zarokian, Perfumer
Sweet, spicy, and earthy, this is an undeniably desert-grown rose scent
Crimson Rocks conjures the majesty of the Al Hajar mountains in all their glory at dusk. Standing tall at the top, one is engulfed by a sweet sense of peace. For this fragrance, Amouage brought to life an intense rose, one that is resilient to withstand extreme weather yet gentle, welcoming and just like the mountains it calls home, rooted to stand the test of time. Texturing the rose are red notes of cinnamon and as earthy jujube honey accord which along with oak wood and cedar wood paint the Al Hajar mountains in deep crimson hues.

On the coast of Ras Al Jinz, mid-summer, when the sun is in the middle of the sky, Ashore, depicts a mirage of the senses. As one's eyes are saturated with light, a surreal brightness blends all that is around them, leaving only the wind that carries the scent of spices from the East.

This woody fragrance is an olfactive depiction of 1920’s bohemian culture. It is about the arrogance and social tension in the world’s cultural discourse.

Resonating the fragments of a memoir this woody and leather fougere fragrance is inspired by the sombre mood of an existential journey. Both alluring and philosophical, this fragrance defies conventions and moves beyond sense and reason.
