Key Notes of Library Collection - Opus IV
What Does Library Collection - Opus IV Smell Like
Upon first inhalation of Library Collection - Opus IV by Amouage, a zesty medley from citrusy grapefruit and mandarin orange mingles with the tart freshness of lemon. The unexpected hint of coriander adds a spicy undercurrent, providing the initial scent with a bold and intriguing character. As these notes start to fade, an intricate bouquet of oriental scents takes center stage. The warm, earthy scent of cumin interlaces with the sweet spice of cardamom and a hint of the resinous aroma of elemi resin. Delicate whiffs of rose and violet leaf, made piquant by rose hip, provide a touch of floral sweetness that rounds out the fragrance's middle notes. The perfume then settles into a deep base, subtly permeated by the smoky essence of frankincense. Labdanum lends a warm, resinous undertone while Peru balsam adds a sweet yet smoky touch to the mix. A soft whisper of musk provides a sensual depth, adding an air of mystery to the fragrance. Together, these diverse elements combine to create an overall woody, spicy scent with a warmth that hints at oriental inspiration and a smoky, resinous finish that lingers.
