Opus Iii Perfume by Amouage, Opus III, launched in 2010, is a fragrance for men and women that is part of the Library Collection by Chrisopher Chong . Like many of the other members of the collection, this has a classic appeal. It’s easily regarded as one of the favorites of the Library fragrances. It opens with aromatic mimosa, broom, cloves, and thyme. These drift into a gorgeous heart of jasmine, ylang-ylang, orange blossom, and most notably, violet. The initial notes rest on a warm, woodsy base of ambrette, musk, papyrus, sandalwood, cedar, guaiac, benzoin, and vanilla, which blend for an oriental effect. The overall impression is that of a powdery, luxurious fragrance that is relaxing and delicately warm. This complex and addictive composition was created by Karine Vinchon Spehner.
Amouage is a luxury perfumery in the country of Oman. Established in 1983, the perfume house is known for its Middle Eastern notes that are inspired by its location. Traditional and elegant, the compositions commonly include spices and incense among its herbaceous and floral ingredients.
