Luxury perfume house Amouage has announced the newest “volume” in its Library Collection, Opus VII. The new fragrance, in keeping with the Library Collection’s defiance of categorization, gendered marketing and fragrance trends, offers a mix of spices atop traditional oriental and leather notes. The official description from Amouage indicates Opus VII will be “a green woody and leather fragrance evoking the juxtaposition of harmony with the intensity of recklessness.”
Library Opus VIII perfume by Amouage presents a compilation of the most beautiful ingredients from around the globe. Jasmin and sambac from the Middle-East are mixed with subtle accords of Ylang Ylang from Comoros and Orange Blossom from Morocco, blending into a radiant palette of top notes. The contrast with middle notes like saffron, ginger and smoky incense, result in an intriguing perfume. Even more special because of dark undertones of bezoine (vanilla-like), balsam, bay and vetiver float through this fragrance.
