I'm not sure which ones you've tried other than Gold Woman/Man, but Gold Man it truly great (now that I think of it, I remember that you've tried Jubilation XXV and "just" liked it). I have most of the male lignup (as samples
) and I just like the general compositions (focus on frankincense). I don't "love" every fragrance per se, but I hardly dislike any (Memoir Man is close... it's just.. a weird composition). I'm not sure whether it's true, but I believe that they use high quality ingredients. Most of the fragrances seem appropriate for different occasions. There are some, especially newer ones, like Ubar, that don't quite fit in the regular frankincense-centric Amouage-world, but I appreciate them too. And of course, the Mukhallas like Tribute Attar and Hommage Attar are great too. (I feel like I repeat myself, but at least it adds to my post count)

I feel the same way!
And regarding Must de Cartier, I much more enjyo the drydown. It's more easy-going.
