Description

Amouage Interlude Woman released in July 2012, launching in Europe, created by perfumer Karine Vinchon Spehner.  Interesting and not ordinary, Interlude is a floral chypre with notes of bergamot, grapefruit, ginger, marigold, incense, rose absolute, orange blossom, helichrysum, jasmine, opoponax, vanilla, benzoin, amber, sandalwood, oud, oakmoss, leather, tonka bean, animalic notes and musk.

 

It opens just weird as can be, chypre grapefruit marigold.  About the time your nose is speculating what you are up to in life, it starts shifting to that gorgeous incense, leather base.  A Monet, smelling it up close is interesting, perplexing, but this scent gets its beauty in the sillage. After a day of wearing it and multiple compliments, along with my own continued "you smell gooooood!" every time I'd walk through the house, this is another Amouage winner.

Review of Amouage Interlude Woman

Bois de Jasmin - "The fragrance opens with a sharp green, leafy note that smells at once like paint thinner and lawn clippings. It’s a bold move to overdose a fragrance with this rough and raspy note, and for a while it keeps my interest. After all, the diesel fumes that crown the top of Serge Lutens Tubéreuse Criminelle are similarly hard on the nose, but it feels like a natural part of the tuberose in the composition. Here, the green notes layered over the woods and incense feel jarring.  As Interlude settles into the skin, the green accents soften, but they are still hovering in the background enough to be present. The immortelle is another strong element in the perfume, and it smells like maple syrup minus the sweetness. The musk and amber fill out the spaces in the base of Interlude, with incense lending its pleasant smoky darkness.  The drydown smells like Indian lime pickles–sharp and zesty, metallic and smoky."

    An acquired taste, but not for me

    This is one of the few Amouage samples I tried that just didn't work for me. This is not surprising since neither marigold or cumin are favorites of mine, and with grapefruit? However, I find most Amouage scents so beautifully blended that I kept trying, but it just didn't work for me. I found it too dry, acrid, woody, and resinous. It felt sharp and musty at the same time, and never really settled down into something I enjoyed. However I would recommend trying anything in this line. They are incredibly and masterfully constructed perfumes, without a moment from the top-note to the dry down that is synthetic or cliched.

    Grew on me for a year

    I blind bought 10 m decants of this and Memoir Woman on Ebay and at first reluctantly concluded that I hated them. The problem was only that I wore too much. As one reviewer put it, there was enough incense there to choke the pope. Throw in dried fruit, port wine, cumin and leather and it was overwhelming. I later learned that one tiny spritz is more than enough. EVERY SINGLE time I put either of these on, my fiancee says I smell amazing. Now when I put a tiny dab on, I sort of sit still and bask in it for a bit. The key to these is restraint. Huge amounts of restraint.

    Interesting...

    I tried two Amouage samples, this and Lyric Woman. I would love to try more, because the quality in both is obvious. That said, I found the Chypre, grapefruit, citrus, bergamot and marigold notes sharper than I like. I am not a huge fan of Amber, either, and that note has more presence as well. It is not that I don't like this, but it doesn't become one with my skin, as Lyric did (swoon worthy). It has a more distinct life of it's own. Sharp, interesting, edgy.
