Journey WOMAN, Amouage
Inspired by Shanghai Art Deco in the 1920s and Chinese film noir, Journey is a refined fragrance for the elegant woman who knows that a soft touch and a glimpse of silk can be far more alluring than brazen boldness. It opens with delicate jasmine flowers, coated in honey and infused with jasmine tea. Osmanthus lends an apricot touch, along with smoky Lapsang Souchong and a hint of leather.
Over time, the jasmine blooms, first turning creamy with a smoothness that coats the skin like silk, then golden as the ambered resins stir in the base. The tea fades, but the apricots ripen and turn juicy, adding a summer sweetness to the floral bouquet. Slivers of pipe tobacco, spices, cedar, leather, and smokiness start to swirl around the flowers, creating shadows that contrast with the amber’s golden warmth. In its dry-down, Journey’s quiet oriental flourishes grow stronger, adding richness and depth, while also creating a scent that is sultrier in feel. But it is Journey’s incredible creaminess and smooth refinement which really stole our hearts. It’s the perfect scent for a confident woman who feels no need to shout, and who knows that sophisticated elegance leaves the greatest impression.
