Pursuing its quest to push the boundaries of fragrance creation, Amouage explores the sublime union between ‘generosity’ and ‘time’ in a quartet of four Exceptional Extraits. Concentrated at the highest industry standards and aged between three to six months at the House’s Manufacture in Oman, Honour 43 Woman (First Batch), Epic 56 Woman (First Batch), Reflection 45 Man (First Batch) and Interlude 53 Man (Third Batch) each reveal hidden facets and depths that unfurl across every dimension, making them richer, more potent, and gifted with extended longevity. An aesthete’s dream born from a visionary mindset that challenges contemporary practices, the Amouage Exceptional Extraits are a rarity conceived without limit or constraint, incompatible with any approach within the industry.
The Amouage Exceptional Extraits are the result of a succession of aging steps which progressively define their exquisite character. After five to ten weeks of Maturation, the concentrates reach a first plateau: they show promise, completeness and harmony. Everything is in place. This is when alcohol is carefully added and the slow Maceration stage starts: inimitable and irreproducible, it will last between three and sixteen weeks. The content of each tank is evaluated on a weekly basis, with every observation carefully noted. The perfumes progressively become more intense, precise and vibrant, energized by the transformation. A true metamorphosis: their universe expanded where all the components are completely integrated and the creations become more complex than ever.
For almost 40 years, Amouage has carved out one of the most flattering reputations in the select amongst the circle of leading high-end perfume Houses around the world. This recognition is the fruit of the House’s unwavering dedication to perfumery and a coveted portfolio of high-quality Eau de Parfum containing a generous 20% to 30% pure oils. The four Exceptional Extraits, with their atypically high concentration ranging between 43% and 56%, now reveal a deeper story of the House’s most iconic creations.
Available in limited quantities, the Amouage Exceptional Extraits come in luxurious lacquered 100 ml flacons adorned by the House’s signature ‘Gift of Kings’ seal and can be purchased online today at www.amouage.com, or at Amouage boutiques and distributors worldwide.
