Amouage introduces a new luxurious pair, Epic, by the House’s creative director Christopher Chong. This fragrant duo is inspired by the Puccini’s Turandot, and tried to embody the legend of the ancient Silk Road from China to Arabia. The female fragrance, Epic Woman, represents an endeavor run by strength and ambition, while the Epic Man is a compass on the Silk Road.
Richness of these fragrances evokes the goods that were objects of trade in Asia (gold, pearls, tea, silk, jade, spices and incense), mixed with the dramatic signature of the House.
The male fragrance Epic Man is an oriental woody one, offering you pink pepper, cardamom, saffron and nutmeg at the top. The heart pulses with essences of geranium and myrrh, while the base consists of precious Aoud, patchouli, leather and incense.
The perfumes are available as 50 and 100 ml EDP. Their bottles were designed to look like they’re made out of royal jade of the Orient, with some golden details to point out the richness of Arabia. The outer packages shines with sheer nude shades of pearl (female edition) and rustic color of brown (male edition), that reminds of ancient China leather suitcases. The nose behind these fragrances is Randa Hammami. Amouage Epic Man was launched in 2009.
