Amouage's Library Collection is one of the most luxurious perfume collections in the world. First launched in July 2010, the Library Collection pays poetic homage to the art of living, the collection unfolds a contemporary face to the House of Amouage while preserving the elegance and effortless classicism known the brand is known for. The frangrance house recently launched their sixth perfume, Opus VI. The new mesmorizing scent studies the nature of memory and romantic love. Coming from the frangrance family of amber, woody, leather and olfactory notes of sichun pepper, patchouli, sandalwood, and St Thomas bay. Born of the age-old mastery of haute parfumerie, this enduring and emotional fragrance created by Amouage creative director Christopher Chong was inspired by the power of erasing, destroying and re-inventing unwanted and painful memories. “Personal memories are an eclectic and fragmented journey of our lives. They are a source of profound knowledge in the form of diaries and memoirs deep within the recesses of one’s mind,” says Chong.
The re-formulated amber tone is perfected with the use of periploca which give the perfume a almond-like undertone. Frankincense and sichuan pepper were added for intensity. The base radiates with the a golden warmth of ambranum, rounded off with fragments od woody, leather and cistus notes. The perfume cost around $430 for 100ml bottle. www.amouage.com
