Like a Chinese dragon, Journey Man opens with a fiery roar filled with Sichuan peppers and bold spices in a golden, boozy flame. The peppers tingle and gently bite, while a richly fruited sweetness intoxicates you with a cognac note. It’s a visual of gold and red, but darkness lurks all around, thanks to swirls of incense, an oud-like cypriol woodiness, and a streak of leathery resins in the base. Tobacco, a sprinkling of cardamom, and the juiciness of neroli orange are the final touches to a complex fragrance that grabs your attention from the start.
Journey is slowly transformed by a beautiful creaminess which tames the dragon’s fiery bite. A smooth layer of tonka vanilla coats the peppers, dry woodiness, incense, and spices. The cognac booziness turns into ambered warmth, and the perfume lingers more softly on the skin. Over time, Journey turns into a creamy, tonka sweetness with woods, spices, and just a hint of fruit mingle together. It’s a bold fragrance whose initial intensity gives way to softness in a rich mix that feels very much like an Amouage.

Great manly scent
Smooth, spicy and woody tobacco fragrance. Very well done by Amouage. The peppery opening gives way to the tobacco and woods, with a boozy flair.
5 stars for Scent Split - had to make that clear. Journey Man on the other hand... Not so much. Opening is very nice and unique, lots of spice with some sweet. Sadly within an hour it turns into an unoriginal soapy scent on my skin. The dry down is reminiscent of soap you’d find in the bathroom of a luxury hotel suite. Decent scent, not overpowering, not offensive. But not creative or bold in the slightest. It does stay with me for at least 5 or 6 hours though. 3/5
