Key Notes of Homage

What Does Homage Smell Like

Homage by Amouage opens with an intriguing blend of frankincense and rose, giving it an initial aromatic depth with a distinct floral edge. The rose’s classic, romantic scent merges skillfully with the frankincense’s warm, resinous aroma to create a distinct yet welcoming start.

The perfume then slowly transitions into its heart notes, where the robust, woody scent of oud becomes noticeable. Still, it's not overpowering—the woody tone adds a solid backbone to the blend but leaves space for the sweet, heady scent of jasmine to come through. The jasmine softens the woody oud, adding a hint of mystery and seduction to the overall aroma.

As the perfume reaches its final stage, the dominant note of orange emerges. This citrus tone adds a zesty brightness to the mixture, cutting through the deeper notes with a clean, refreshing edge. The lemon, although less noticeable, still contributes a slight tartness that enhances the orange’s sweetness. Underneath it all, there's a subtle hint of sandalwood, grounding the perfume with a soft, creamy woodiness that brings everything together. The final result is an intriguing, vibrant perfume that plays on the contrast between deep, aromatic woods and fresh, vibrant citrus.

Review of Homage

Amouage's Homage, first introduced in 2008, is an intriguing unisex perfume. It effectively captures an air of timeless elegance, primarily appealing to mature audiences, though it has a certain universal appeal that younger groups might also find intriguing.

With a scent clearly influenced by floral and oriental tones, Homage wraps the wearer in an exquisite bouquet where rose and jasmine play leading roles. Still, it's the unexpected twist of smoky and woody notes that add a distinct character to this perfume. It's as if you're walking through a lush oriental garden with a hint of a bonfire in the distance - complex yet harmonious.

The perfume's longevity is impressive, lingering around for hours, making it an ideal choice for evening outings or nights out. However, it might be a bit too potent for a business environment or daily wear unless you have a soft spot for strong scents.

While Homage has a pronounced scent, it's not overwhelming in terms of sillage. This makes it a perfume that announces your presence without overpowering the room.

The perfume is suitable for all seasons. However, its spicy, smoky, and woody tendencies might shine brighter during the colder months, while its floral and citrusy notes could resonate well with warmer seasons.

Its main drawback could be its price point, which might not be accessible for everyone. However, if you value complexity and longevity in a perfume and appreciate Oriental and floral scents with a smoky undertone, Homage by Amouage is worth considering.
