Fragrance Poetry inspired by Epic Man by Amoauge.

epic man amouage fragrance review poetry

I grew up in the black woods, dense and strong.
The prince of incense, musk and white spice.
Who thieves strike – But not wishing to do wrong –
To steal my gold – which is oud – with their slice.

I’m a forest of black woods – dense and strong.
Incense rises like a fog from within.
Filled with all sorts of musks and white spices,
as smooth, rounded trees stand firm in the wind.

But there are those who wonder and envy.
They saw me ill – infection oozed like sap.
They came to thieve and take my life from me.
Hypnotized by my deep, exotic scents.

Just how much of my “esse” can they rob?
Every drop of me – more precious than gold.
But don’t underrate my virility
It’s vigor that grew me robust and old.

I’m not the dead forest you expected.
I’m fresh and awoken. . . I am “Epic”. . .

    1. Thanks Christine! That draws inspiration from one of the main fragrance notes – oud – which is created by infecting certain species of trees. The sap this process creates is one of the most expensive fragrance notes.

      1. It’s a good week so far. We’ve moved out of lockdown level 4 and into level 3 so feeling good about it. And we’ve adopted twins kitten so very excited as they will be home soon😊

    1. Thanks, your comments are so appreciated! I can only write this well when a fragrance inspires me so well.

      The line you wrote was an inspiration drawn from the Oud note, which comes from wood getting infected and oozing. But as it fights the infection, the ooze it releases smells great! Also, the cologne has an “old-school” vibe, while still managing to smell fresh and modern! So it contrasts old/wounded with fresh/young.


  1. Greed ruins many exotic places. In Spain, I believe, there was an engineering phenomenon from generations that have lived ages ago and in trying to dissect it in the modern age, it fell apart and is no longer a wonder.
