Amouage Interlude is a masculine cologne that features accords of balsamic and amber. This fragrance was launched alongside a feminine perfume by the same name in 2012 by the fragrance house Amouage. This particular scent is designed to give a feeling of controlled chaos to the wearer and those around him. The cologne starts with notes of pimento berry oil, bergamot and oregano. The heart introduces traditional spices, including frankincense, opoponax and myrrh, alongside the sweet and warm notes of amber and cistus. The base notes of sandalwood, agarwood smoke, leather and patchouli create a lasting fragrance and give the cologne a bit more depth.
Amouage is a perfume house started in 1983. This company looks back to the Arabic traditions of perfumery as it creates modern aromas. Even the packaging is tied to old traditions. Amouage Interlude comes in a deep blue bottle that has the shape of Khanjar, the traditional dagger of Oman.
