Review: Amouage Epic (Man/Women)

screen-capture-481Epic for men and women by Amouage is a a rich, bold and intensely spicy oriental fragrance with a gourmand twist. Epic Woman, represents an endeavor run by strength and ambition, while Epic Man is a compass on the ancient Silk Road from China to Arabia.

These are legendary fragrances, yet very wearable. Both Epic for men and women open with a punch of spice that is quite dense and lasting – the cumin may be overpowering for some, but know that it does fade quite quickly. As the intensity of the spices thin out, a beautiful soft floral note peeks through and Epic warms into a gorgeous woody-vanilla scent. The beauty of Epic lies in its ability to harmoniously balance such contrasting notes into a creamy, edible composed marriage between sweet, savoury and sour. Have patience with this one, give it some time to develop and it will sing to you.
