Amouage Interlude Man is inspired by chaos and disorder. This spicy and woody fragrance opens with zesty bergamot, oregano and pimento berry oil, perpetuating intervals of conflict which are countered by aromatic notes of amber, frankincense, opoponax, cistus and myrrh. Eternal notes of leather, agarwood smoke, patchouli and sandalwood in the base add lasting layers of depth and texture. Made in the UK.
Awards: Winner of the Basenotes Fragrance Award for Best Niche Fragrance.
Editor's Notes: Probably one of the loudest fragrances on the market today, Interlude is a no holding back incense sweetened with the herbal twang of oregano. With oud for good measure, Interlude is surprisingly calm and liturgical, and when applied lightly demonstrates careful orchestration and thoughtfulness. It’s the eye of the storm.
