The Fate Accords

Amouage Fate

Amouage Fate

Web-based rumours of an Amouage release capturing the teenage market with notes of Cotton Candy, Strawberry, Watermelon, grated Marzipan, Blackcurrant and Pineapple can now be discarded. That was a cocktail recipe not a note release.

Christopher Chong, the creative director of Amouage rarely speaks about perfume but he does chirp in cryptic as well as communicating with incense-based smoke signals. Using an ancient Omani text my deciphering delivers the following information.

The Fate Accords are made up of:

A Glimpse at Fate

  1. I haven’t found my Amouage yet. These notes look promising. Of course the price will probably be problematic.

  2. I can personally guarantee there is no pineapple or cotton candy in either of these. I love Mr. Chong’s tweets though 🙂 And yes, there are quite a few teenagers in this part of the world that could afford a few Amouage scents….
    I tried these both yesterday at the store here in Dubai. Even though I am probably biased towards this house I must say they are both really beautiful and worthy of the Amouage name. The notes are very accurate, especially for the man. I found the woman to be a little more linear on my skin with lots of nice suede-like leather. I can’t wait to see the packaging in person.

      • The perception of ‘Linear’ makes sense when if you compare the two in the context of the perfumers. One of whom I will be profiling tomorrow; the non-linear one.
