Amouage Interlude Man released in July 2012, launching in Europe, created by perfumer Pierre Negrin. Interlude Man is a spicy woods with notes of bergamot, oregano, allspice berries, amber, incense, cistus, opoponax, leather, oud, patchouli and sandalwood. From Amouage notes - "Interlude for Man is a spicy and woody fragrance inspired by chaos and disorder masquerading an interlude moment of harmony in its heart."
Smoke, leather, woods, incense, this is a stunning entry into the fragrance market for men. As summer comes to a close and the nights get a hint of cold, this scent belongs to be hanging in the air through fall and winter. And it could hang on a man or a woman. Incredibly complicated, like the women's version, it will almost always be different and unique on each person and in each season. There is nothing usual about Amouage Interlude Man.
Amouage Interlude Man Reviews
From Basenotes - "Interlude man is a smoky resin type fragrance that reminds me of driving past a sweet smoky bonfire wafting across the road and it coming in to you're air vents."
From Basenotes - "the base rests on a very smooth, subtle accord of suede which provides a soft, plush cushion for all. If there is anything sinister about Interlude, it's like the gentle giant who intimidates and frightens us at first, but makes us laugh with endearing irony in the end. Don't allow the size of this one to scare you off--Interlude will warm up to you quickly and wholeheartedly if you let it. It's a fun scent to wear, sort of abstract, and something which takes you places along the way."
From Kafkaesque - "It created the perfect small cloud around me, as golden as a halo. The richness of the caramel-honey was so intense, it feels as though one were swimming in liquid gold flecked with herbs. Again, I’m reminded of how this is what I thought Ambre Sultan would be like, except the latter was sheer, thin and mild on my skin instead. Another perfume comes to mind as well. The way Interlude softens to a dreamy, billowing, intensely rich, golden cloud makes me think of Xerjoff‘s Mamluk. It has some of the same rich sweetness as Interlude, though Mamluk is primarily a gourmand caramel-honey-lemon bouquet, and not a dry caramel-honey-oregano-smoke one. Still, the degree of both perfumes’ opulence and that honeyed caramel accord makes them feel like distant cousins in the same wealthy clan."
From The Candy Perfume Boy - "Interlude Man opens with a bonfire-and-a-half’s worth of smoke. What’s interesting is that this glorious leather and wood smoke is instantaneously oozing with sweet, creamy and spicy vanilla. A sprinkling of herbs goes a little way to curb the sweetness, allowing Interlude Man to be shaped in two perfect proportions of smoke and vanilla."
