Interlude Black Iris is the house of Amouage’s latest introspective creation for men. The fragrance evokes an air of disorder while maintaining a sense of balance and tranquility through the inventive use of Orris, Frankincense and Myrrh. An orchestrated blend of technical skill and creative integrity, the fragrance takes one moment in time for self-reflection and personal discovery to compose internal harmony from external chaos.
Interlude Black Iris Man is a spicy, woody Eau de Parfum created by perfumer Pierre Negrin at a concentration of 25% of fragrance oil.
Harmony resonates in the heart of Interlude Black Iris Man. Zesty Bergamot, Rosemary and Violet Leaves conjure perpetuating intervals of conflict which are countered by notes of Amber, Frankincense, Cistus and Myrrh. A layer of Orris Absolute and Vanilla smoothens the heart of the composition. Finally, notes of leather, Agarwood Smoke, Patchouli, Sandalwood and Cedarwood in the base add lasting depth and texture.
Amouage – Royal Gifts from the King of Oman
Since ancient times, the fabled land of Oman has been famous for its unique exotic incense and perfumes. But the trade in this precious product, as well as the entire perfume industry, was marked by highs and lows and, at one stage, was almost lost to the sands of time. Luckily this came to an end in 1983 as the Omani royal family, under His Majesty Sultan Qaboos, commissioned his Highness Sayyid Hamad bin Hamoud al bu Said, also a member of the royal family, to revive the old Arabic culture of perfumery. This event marked the birth of the brand Amouage as a luxurious, internationally oriented fragrance house with oriental roots. To realize his vision Sayyid Hamand spared neither cost nor effort and the first fragrance of the house was the classic "Gold". The fragrance was introduced under the applause of the world press and the perfume became an instant success.
The name Amouage has been carefully selected. Although it sounds French, it is a purely conceptual term consisting, first, from the Arabic term "Amwaj", which means wave, and on the other from the French word for love, "amour". So Amouage means in a broader sense "the waves of emotions." The unique name reflects the spirit of the fragrances: their grace, their luster and their feeling - a very special gift for all those you love!
