The latest creation for men from the house of Amouage.
The fragrance evokes an air of disorder while maintaining a sense of balance and tranquillity. An orchestrated blend of technical skill and creative integrity, the fragrance takes one moment in time for self-reflection and personal discovery to compose internal harmony from external chaos.
Top notes of Bergamot, Rosemary and Violet Leaves conjure perpetuating intervals of conflict, countered by the heart notes of Amber, Frankincense, Cistus, and Myrrh. A layer of Orris and Vanilla smoothens the heart of the composition. Finally, base notes of Leather, Agarwood Smoke, Patchouli, Sandalwood and Cedarwood, add lasting depth and texture.
Interlude Man VS Interlude Black Iris
Created by perfumer Pierre Negrin, with a concentration of 25% fragrance oil, Interlude Black Iris uses a refined palette to smoothen the facets of the original creation. In comparison with its 2012 predecessor, Interlude Black Iris presents several differences. Oregano and rosemary notes have been toned down with the addition of violet leaves. Orris adds an extra layer of buttery smoothness with complimentary vanilla. And finally, the overall woodiness comes out faster with this composition.
Bottle and Packaging
Amouage’s signature glass crystal bottle is introduced in a rich and mesmerizing midnight blue and black hue with gun metal detailing, and sapphire blue Swarovski crystal. A vibrant palette of blue nuances enriches the packaging in an abstract and conceptual representation of orderly chaos.
Interlude Black Iris is available in 100ml Eau de Parfum format.
References and Sources of Inspiration
Interlude Black Iris was approached as an overpainting of the original fragrance creation. Interlude Man, the underpainting, gives a context which the paint strokes of Orris and other ingredients become more resonant and powerful. The creative intention was to reveal different facets of Interlude Man.
