The history of Amouage perfumes begins in 1983 in Oman. From the dream of the Arab perfumer art manager Syyd Hamad bin Hamoud to the bu Said, the Amouage brand was born.

The story continued with the debut of Amouage Home Collection, introducing scented candles and perfumes for the environment.

Amouage Epic (MAN) is reminiscent of the legendary ancient Silk Road from China to Arabia.
The scent, a pleasant whirlwind of ingredients, was created by Ronda Hammami; He made his debut in 2009. Together with Amouage Epic (WOMAN), it represents the true riches that deserve to be discovered, valued and told.
The source of inspiration for perfumes has a double derivation: the legendary Silk Road and the work of Turandot by Giacomo Puccini.
The most recent theme of the Amouage version is based on a legend about Puccini. Legend has it that one day, after his creation, Puccini buried his work in the sands along the Silk Road. It is said that the last act of the work, the III, represents something incomparable, superhuman. The legendary town of Ubar in Oman is the starting point on the journey to discover the missing arias. Roads led along the Silk Road, between the East and the highest mountains in the world, in China. Here the elements used by the ancient caravans were mistaken for the precious grains of Oman silver incense.
In this way, Amouage perfumes explore valuable raw materials.
Epic Man follows a rich and diverse composition. At first it opens with pink pepper, cardamono, saffron, walnut, cumin, myrtle, pink walnut, olibano, and continues with a mixture of geranium and myrrh. The base consists of Agar Wood (Oud), incense, leather, sandalwood zest, cedar, styrax, moss and Castoreum. Although the compound leads us to think of a spicy, woody essence, Epic Man is warm, sweet, enchanting and easy to wear. An essence with a bland, suave warmth, the scent can be a great choice for man.
The Amouage perfume line was launched in 1983 in the Sultanate of Oman with the intention of wanting to enrich with something new the traditional Arab perfumer art, based on myrrh and incense. Guy Robert is the genius creator of Amoage, known today as Amouage Gold.
Metaphorically speaking, the scent of Amoage Gold is what opened the door to a true golden age in the perfume industry, evoking the sophisticated lifestyle of men who appreciate sophistication and fine taste.
Eau de parfum is an essence of luxury with a rich texture.
The perfume is said to contain about 140 ingredients (as far as the Local Judicial Administration is concerned) : rose square, vale lily, myrrh, silver incense, jasmine, amber, jaaggiolo, cedar, zibetto, moss, sandalwood zest, patchouli and lichen.
Amouage testified that ” Amouage Gold is the most valiant perfume in the world.’
Guy Robert is the perfumer known for his recognized and appreciated collaboration in the realisation of perfumes such as Hermès Equipage, Doblis and Calèche, Cristian Dior Dioressence, and Madame Rochas.
Guy Robert stated ‘‘In my type of work, you always dream of being able to create a perfume in which you can give free rein to your creativity using all the essences available and putting to use your experience, your creativity and your imagination, not import how much it costs.”
Amouage Gold, with its lingering scent due to quality ingredients, aims to be a psychic experience not to be missed for the glory of Guy, its creator.
The scent recalls Shaal Nur, a woody oriental scent, launched in 1997, but Amouage Vite Gold, with its much deeper and richer notes, brings a luxury note in the care of elegant life.
