Hello you lovely Perfume Peeps!

We are joined today by one of our fabulous APJ winners from the past who has written in praise of Amouage Interlude Woman. I’d like to thank Libertine Parfumerie for their incredible generosity in providing our giveaway today.

Amouage Interlude Woman Perfume Review by Eliza

Photo Stolen Fragrantica

Fragrantica gives these featured accords:
Top: Bergamot, grapefruit, ginger, tagete (marigold)
Heart: Rose, frankincense, jasmine, orange blossom, helichrysum (immortelle), opoponax, sandalwood, walnut, coffee, kiwi, honey
Base: Vanilla, benzoin, amber, sandalwood, oakmoss, leather, tonka, musk, agarwood

Eliza here from the US. The package arrived today. What treasures!!! I immediately sprayed on the Amouage Interlude Woman. Initial thoughts were herby medicinal, like echinacia, or chamomile, so I was not surprised to read that it lists tagetes (marigold) in the top notes. Then peppers and something floral. Within a few moments I could smell incense, which finally developed into frankincense and probably myrrh. Right now it is softening to a lovely warm scent with floral underpinnings. But I can still smell the woods, and a bit of the medicine. Incensey perfumes are not my cup of tea, but this is quite lovely.

HOUSEKEEPING

Entries Close Sunday 21st 2013 10pm AusEST and winners will be announced in a separate post then.
Winners will be chosen by putting names on same sized papers, folded similarly, put on a tray and TSO Jin will pick them. He doesn’t even stop watching TV to do it usually.
The winners will have till Wednesday 24th 2013 to get in touch (portia underscore turbo at yahoo dot com dot au) with their address or I will give the prize to someone else.
No responsibility taken for lost or damaged goods in transit.

Special THANKS to LibertinePerfumerie for the AMOUAGE Interlude Samples. Please visit their site because they are so generous and helpful. If you wonder why they are more expensive than the discounters or OS retailers it’s because they are the only licensed company selling their fragrances in Australia; where you know you are buying new, fresh and genuine product. The cost of importing and buying the right to import alcohol based fragrances (and having the right to send alcohol based fragrances throughout Australia, which are illegal to send in the Australia Post system) is expensive and they must cover their costs to bring you these luxury goods.

GO TO IT GANG!!!

See you tomorrow,

  1. I’d LOVE to write a review for the Perfume Junkies!
    So, I’d say… Robert Piguet Baghari. Not that I know it, but I love Fracas and now I want to investigate the Piguet line.
    Thank’s for the draw, sweet Portia!

  2. Would love to try the Interludes and would love to try writing a guest post. So I’ll mention Maitresse; I haven’t tried it yet, but I do like the fact that Agent Provocateur does fragrances that don’t smell like teenagers.

  3. Dearest Portia
    I am happy to proclaim that The Dandy is a follower (and a believer) and does so by WordPress.
    Those dashed Libertines do sell the fine Futur by Robert Piguet, much beloved by my dear self and very near the top of my wish list.
    Yours ever

  4. I’m a little nervous about writing a perfume review, because I’m still kind of a newbie, but I’d do a whole lot worse for Amouage! I just became a follower via email, though I’ve been sent this way many a time via Perfume Posse. Checked out Libertine’s site, and they have tons of L’Artisan, including Seville a l’Aube which I just got a sample of. What a draw!

  5. I’d love to try these! I follow through bloglovin. And on Libertine Perfumerie I am charmed by Merchant Loup by L’Artisan Parfumeur, sounds like something I need to try some day!

  6. Hello Perfume Junkies! Thank you for this draw. It would be great fun to write a guest review. I follow APJ by e-mail.

    Looking over Libertine’s site I found P. Frapin & Cie’s “1270”. I have never tried this scent but love frags with boozey references. “1270” is described as inspired by their famous cognac, listing notes including bitter chocolate, pepper, grapes, leather and honey. Wow!

  7. Wow! How fun to see my review!

    I have to tell the rest of the story: I gave the other half of the sample to a friend who is rekindling her love of perfume and adores incense. She said that this is her favorite fragrance so far. When she wears it, she can’t wait for each note to unfold and mingle with the others into a complex story. It’s a winner!

  9. I follow APJ by having it on the “my blogs” list on my own blog (Perfume Project Northwest). A fragrance I like a lot that is sold by Libertine is Nasomatto Duro. I only have a sample of it, but it wouldn’t be bad to have a nice Amouage or Special Manufacturer’s Sample to go with it!

  10. Hi sweetie! I follow on WordPress. Libertine has Tokyo Milk Dark Crushed No. 32. I tried that once and I liked it and I should have bought it because it was on sale but I didn’t. Perfumista regret.

  11. I’m following via E-mail!
    Libertine has Parfum D’Empire’s Equistrius, that is one of the most wonderfull iris I’ve ever tried!

  12. Eliza – hi! Good start 🙂

    Portia, I love the idea! It will be interesting to see four new (?) guest writers here.

    No need entering me into the draw (I have both samples) but I’ll spread the word (and I spent some time on the Libertine website – too bad (for me) they are in Australia).

  13. Adam here. I most gladly follow your surprise-and-delightful scent-ventures by email. My mother’s favourite is Fracas so I’m gonna go with that… I’ve never felt “grown-up” or “sophisticated” enough to pull off any Amouage but hey, I’m willing to give ’em a go and write about it too! Thanks APJ and Libertine Perfumerie for the opportunity.

  14. Hello Portia..one can never have too many samples so I will try my luck again 🙂

    I follow via WordPress and would be honored to write a short review if I win – does it have to be of the Interlude Man or Woman or any perfume?

    As to what I saw in the Libertine Perfumerie that looked interesting, I pick Penhalgion’s Violetta. I wonder if the bottle is slightly blue or if the blue is truly just the juice? Whatever the answer, that blue is gorgeous!

    Thanks for the draw!
