Fragrance description Amouage Opus III
Amouage Opus III is a floral, oriental fragrance for men and women, with a powdery feel. This Eau de Parfum from an independent luxurious perfume brand based in London, which draws inspiration from the rich and varied heritage of its birthplace in the Sultanate of Oman, is full of life, timelessly classical and, like all Amouage perfumes, uniquely inspiring.
The Opus III Eau de Parfum is part of the Amouage brand’s luxury collection. The Library Collection comprises ten perfumes designed as timeless adventures in fragrance that pay no attention to currently fashionable trends. Each of the remarkable and magnificent fragrances from this collection celebrating integrity, originality and masterful craftsmanship is inspired by memories and the major milestones on human life journeys. The Opus eaux de parfum are labelled with “codes” from I to X, indicating their status as a complete work that forms part of a broader collection. All of them deny conventional classification, cross gender boundaries and allow their wearers to write their own unique story. The Library Collection of fragrances is a poetic homage to the art of living.
Amouage Opus III is a beautiful, woody, floral and powdery fragrance inspired by the artistic and scientific sides of the creative process, from the darkest moments of frustration to the flash of enlightenment and discovery. The renowned perfume designer Karine Vinchon Spehner created the third jewel of the Library Collection: a timeless, classical fragrance born from the ancient art of the true masters of perfume-making. The composition of Amouage Opus III first reveals floral notes of mimosa, carnation and lupine complemented by accords of nutmeg and thyme. The heart brings the scent of violet, jasmine, ylang-ylang and orange blossoms; the base comprises rich oriental notes of aromatic ambrette seeds, musk, papyrus, cedar, sandalwood and lignum vitae, benzoin, vanilla and incense.
The Amouage Opus III Eau de Parfum will be appreciated by women and men who prefer utterly timeless fragrances hiding a deep meaning. It will forever win the hearts of those who enjoy floral and woody fragrances with an oriental heart, and delight everyone who can appreciate true quality, originality and precision in each step of perfume-making. Opus III is suitable for day and evening wear throughout the year. Its oriental aspect will, however, stand out most strongly in the warmer months. To its wearer, it will always bring a touch of timeless style; its uniqueness full of significance will always help you stand out from the crowd.
Besides the arresting fragrances, which are the result of a manufacturing process meeting the strictest standards of quality, all the perfumes made by Amouage also stand out with their luxurious packaging. The Opus III bottle, with its appealingly rounded shape in a wonderful frosted light colour with gold decorations, excites with its elegant, sleek and sumptuous design. The packaging is completed with a supremely stylish light box with a sophisticated minimalist design featuring a prominent seal.
Amouage Opus III – a timelessly classical fragrance full of life inspired by all the aspects of the creative process.

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.
