Fragrance description Amouage Opus I
Amouage Opus I is a woody and warmly spicy fragrance for men and women. This Eau de Parfum from an independent luxurious perfume brand based in London, which draws inspiration from the rich and varied heritage of its birthplace in the Sultanate of Oman, is beautiful, timelessly classical and, like all Amouage perfumes, uniquely inspiring.
The Opus I Eau de Parfum is part of the Amouage brand’s luxury collection. The Library Collection comprises ten fragrances designed as timeless adventures of the senses that pay no attention to currently fashionable trends. Each of the remarkable and magnificent fragrances from this collection celebrating integrity, originality and masterful craftsmanship is inspired by memories and the major milestones on human life journeys. The Opus eaux de parfum are labelled with “codes” from I to X, indicating their status as a complete work that forms part of a broader collection. All of them deny conventional classification, cross gender boundaries and allow their wearers to write their own unique story. The Library Collection of fragrances is a poetic homage to the art of living.
The Amouage Opus I Eau de Parfum is a wonderful Chypre (cypress) fragrance inspired by the beginnings of the journey of discovery. The renowned perfume designer Daniel Maurel created the first jewel of the Library Collection: a timeless, classical fragrance born from the ancient art of the true masters of perfume-making. The composition of Amouage Opus I opens with head notes of bitter orange, plum and cardamom. The blossoming heart awakens all the senses with accords of ylang-ylang, rose, jasmine, tuberose and lily of the valley. The base blends in elegant and rich notes of papyrus, cedar, sandalwood and lignum vitae, incense, tonka beans and vetiver.
The Amouage Opus I Eau de Parfum will be appreciated by women and men who prefer utterly timeless fragrances hiding a deep meaning. It will forever win the hearts of those who enjoy spicy and woody fragrances with a floral heart, and delight everyone who can appreciate true quality, originality and precision at each step of perfume-making. Opus I is suitable for day and evening wear throughout the year. Its warm character, however, is best appreciated in the cold months. To its wearer, it will always bring a touch of timeless style; its uniqueness full of significance will always help you stand out from the crowd.
Besides the arresting fragrances, which are the result of a manufacturing process meeting the strictest standards of quality, all the perfumes made by Amouage also stand out with their luxurious packaging. The Opus I bottle, with its appealingly rounded shape in a wonderful frosted pale yellow with gold decorations, excites with its elegant, sleek and sumptuous design. The packaging is completed with a supremely stylish light box with a sophisticated minimalist design featuring a prominent seal.

About the brand Amouage
The sumptuous scent of Amouage is characterised by its uniqueness and its totally distinctive elegance. The independent brand with luxury niche perfumes now has its headquarters in London, but its roots reach into the depths of the Middle East.
Amouage draws inspiration from the rich and varied heritage of its place of origin – the Sultanate of Oman. The brand was founded in 1983 by His Excellency Sayyid Hamad bin Hamoud Al Busaidi, a member of the Omani royal family, on the basis of his decision to revive the glory of Arabian fragrances. The brand’s philosophy is to create perfumes with truly artistic value. Amouage strictly selects only the finest exotic ingredients, including silver incense from Oman, the unique Oman rose and myrrh.
Amouage’s niche perfumes are put together in Grasse, Southern France, which is considered the global capital of perfumes, thus providing a guarantee of the highest standards. The perfumes then travel to Oman for production, where the maceration of the ingredients takes about two months. To finish, all the Amouage perfumes undergo the highest quality checks and are packaged almost exclusively by hand.
