Has anyone tried Amouage Ouverture Man? I have usually been underwhelmed by Amouage but this one has a really interesting note pyramid.

I like Jubilation XXV and Interlude, never tried overture. They make a certain style of fragrances that i think take some time to appreciate.

I have a few of them too. Interlude is probably the best. My problem with Amouage is that they smell expensive without being special.

I was planning on checking that out tomorrow.I went to sample the new Terre D'Hermes Eau Givree this weekend and it's quite well done. Nothing ground shaking but was a pleasant surprise for me, given the original TdH is too overladen with ISO-E super for me, and the cumin is off-putting - at least to my nose that always makes the B.O. association with cumin in fragrances.
The TdH Eau Givree is an EDP and projects somewhat less that the original EDT, and opens with a stunning cool, citron, more green, bitter/dry, than sweet, combined with juniper and hint of pomelo/grapefruit and offset by timut pepper. From there, to my nose, it deepens slightly and softens down into something very reminiscent of the original TdH character, but without the somewhat screechy aspects of overused ISO-E, and pleasantly devoid of cumin. Less earthy in the heart and base overall. Longevity is decent at about 5-6 hours.
Eau Givree is presumably a replacement for the previous flanker - Eau Tres Fraiche, that has become another discontinued casualty of the EU ban on lyral and lilal, and which is causing many houses to pull multiple fragrances from both their EU and US distribution. Tom Ford's Neroli Portofino Forte is another superb summer fragrance that has met it's demise due to these components being banned in the EU.
