Amouage - Reflection Woman
"An olfactive imitation of New York City’s multiculturalism in the 1970s this floral aldehyde fragrance is a tribute to an iconic era." The notes include rose, ylang ylang, orange blossom, jasmine, blackcurrant, aldehydes, liquorice, incense, sandalwood and patchouli.
An interpretation of those rare moments when life mirrors art, Imitation is the highly anticipated fourth chapter of the second cycle of the Amouage narrative by Creative Director, Christopher Chong. An intensely personal exploration of New York City in the 1970s, Imitation is inspired by Chong’s childhood memories and his first experiences of a city filled with graffiti, neon lights and a boiling pot of cultures, shaped the way he sees and understands art today.
Top: Rose, Ylang Ylang, Orange Blossom and Jasmine

Amouage – Royal Gifts from the King of Oman
Since ancient times, the fabled land of Oman has been famous for its unique exotic incense and perfumes. But the trade in this precious product, as well as the entire perfume industry, was marked by highs and lows and, at one stage, was almost lost to the sands of time. Luckily this came to an end in 1983 as the Omani royal family, under His Majesty Sultan Qaboos, commissioned his Highness Sayyid Hamad bin Hamoud al bu Said, also a member of the royal family, to revive the old Arabic culture of perfumery. This event marked the birth of the brand Amouage as a luxurious, internationally oriented fragrance house with oriental roots. To realize his vision Sayyid Hamand spared neither cost nor effort and the first fragrance of the house was the classic "Gold". The fragrance was introduced under the applause of the world press and the perfume became an instant success.
The name Amouage has been carefully selected. Although it sounds French, it is a purely conceptual term consisting, first, from the Arabic term "Amwaj", which means wave, and on the other from the French word for love, "amour". So Amouage means in a broader sense "the waves of emotions." The unique name reflects the spirit of the fragrances: their grace, their luster and their feeling - a very special gift for all those you love!
