Fragrance description Amouage Epic
80494 The luxurious Amouage Epic Eau de Parfum is inspired by a legendary aria from Turandot by the famous composer Puccini. According to legend, the composer buried the finished aria in the sand somewhere near the Silk Road. The legend also says that the last part of the aria was so difficult that no human could possibly sing it.
The mysterious atmosphere of the Silk Road is faithfully captured in the Amouage Epic Eau de Parfum. The fragrance symbolises the road that has been crossed for centuries by caravans carrying silk and other precious goods for hundreds and hundreds of kilometres. Tea, gold, pearls and precious gems from China were exchanged for rare silver frankincense from Oman, a legendary land where the rare material which inspired the composition of the Epic Eau de Parfum is found.
All the elements of the Silk Road are masterfully captured in the enchanting Epic fragrance. Cinnamon, together with delicate feminine accords of tea, geranium and jasmine, creates a beautiful harmony in the fragrance’s head and heart. The finale of the perfume brings an opulent combination of iris root, incense, musk, amber, agar wood and lignum vitae.
Amouage Epic is a warm fragrance that will envelop every woman in a scent of mystery like a scarf made from the finest silk. It will boost your confidence and highlight your unique charm. The fragrance is very elegant, imaginative and bold. Its exceptional aroma will never be lost in the greyness of everyday life and will keep reminding you of the importance of overcoming life’s obstacles. The fragrance was launched in 2009.

About the brand Amouage
The sumptuous scent of Amouage is characterised by its uniqueness and its totally distinctive elegance. The independent brand with luxury niche perfumes now has its headquarters in London, but its roots reach into the depths of the Middle East.
Amouage draws inspiration from the rich and varied heritage of its place of origin – the Sultanate of Oman. The brand was founded in 1983 by His Excellency Sayyid Hamad bin Hamoud Al Busaidi, a member of the Omani royal family, on the basis of his decision to revive the glory of Arabian fragrances. The brand’s philosophy is to create perfumes with truly artistic value. Amouage strictly selects only the finest exotic ingredients, including silver incense from Oman, the unique Oman rose and myrrh.
Amouage’s niche perfumes are put together in Grasse, Southern France, which is considered the global capital of perfumes, thus providing a guarantee of the highest standards. The perfumes then travel to Oman for production, where the maceration of the ingredients takes about two months. To finish, all the Amouage perfumes undergo the highest quality checks and are packaged almost exclusively by hand.
