This is the beginning of the second cycle of the Amouage narrative.
This new cycle will focus on an aspect of the theme “Portrait of a Life”.
The first aspect opens this new cycle with Journey.
This is Christopher Chong’s Journey of Metamorphoses.
In this cycle, Christopher Chong will draw elements from his life experiences and mutate them with other art forms and ideas in order to articulate and define his world through fragrances. Christopher Chong becomes the subject in this development. He is the creator, the subject and the object.
In Journey, he connects with early Chinese film noir, especially the ones portraying the underworld of 1920s Shanghai. In Journey Woman, he interprets the above with key ingredients of osmanthus and tobacco to express a fragmented world of improvisation. In Journey Man, he takes the above theme and wants his tobacco to be dark and sinful. It gives a sense of danger and the unknown.
This fragrance opens with spicy Sichuan pepper combined with fullness of bergamot, green cardamom and the brightness of Neroli Bigarade.
The heart is defined by a darker facet that is structured around the spicy tones of Juniper Berries and Incense. They are enhanced with pure Geraniol to give a dry and sweet rose facet with smoky tobacco leaves to accentuate the mysterious aura.
The base illustrates the uncertainty of the Journey mood with a woody masculine tones of ambrox, Indian Cypriol and Tonka Bean Abstract.
