Fragrance description Amouage Opus II
The extraordinary and majestic Fougère Eau de Parfum Amouage Opus II was inspired by the scent of old books, dark wooden shelves and antique leather armchairs. 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, hides a timelessly classical and truly elegant fragrance that is, like all the Amouage perfumes, uniquely inspiring.
The Opus II 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.
Amouage Opus II is extraordinarily appealing and can enhance the natural charisma of its wearer. The fragrance opens with notes of lavender, absinthe, pink laurel and pepper to introduce its exciting spicy character. These seductive notes gradually develop into the fragrance’s heart, which delights with sweet cinnamon combined with contrasting cardamom. Your skin will be gently caressed by delicate rose and jasmine. The base of Amouage Opus II is blended from the essences of precious musk, warm cedar and exotic patchouli. Intoxicating incense and amber provide the perfect finish of this composition, which lasts for an extraordinarily long time.
Far from imposing itself, the unisex Amouage Opus II gives its wearer enough room to tell their own story. It pays tribute to the art of living and is highly inspiring. The Amouage Opus II Eau de Parfum is suitable for everyone who is unafraid to express their opinion and attitude. Opus II is suitable for day and evening wear throughout the year. Its warmth, however, will be best appreciated in the cold months. To its wearer, it will always bring a touch of timelessly classical 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 II bottle, with its appealingly rounded shape in a wonderful milky colour with gold decorations, excites with its elegant, sleek and sumptuous design. The packaging is completed with a supremely stylish white box of 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.
