Our Amouage Material samples and decants are rebottled by Scent Split from genuine fragrance bottles. Scent Split is a wholly independent entity not affiliated, connected, or associated with Amouage.
Original bottle not included with sample/decant purchase. Scent Split rebottles the genuine fragrance into smaller bottles.
Material by Amouage is an Amber Vanilla fragrance for women and men.
Material speaks about the unseen, the reality behind the immateriality, and uncovers the paradox that encapsulates all. The fragrance unfurls thick and complete with patchouli, solved into the sweltering elemi resin and gummy benzoin, and swirls down into a manifold of precious woods, majestic oud, enveloping vanilla, and prominently tonka bean.

Honestly, this smells so much like Dior Addict that I can barely tell them apart…except for the $$$. A spicy vanilla that’s perfect for the cold weather.
It smells like someone peed in the bed.
Amouage at its best. Lovely warm amber. Unisex.
Material is good, but it’s very unlike any other amouage fragrance. In addition to being unisex, it is both sweet and very subtle. If you’re familiar with amouage, you know their fragrances tend to be quite strong and distinctive. Material brings a refreshing change of pace to that, however, I only wish the scent was a bit more pronounced. It has notes of amber, vanilla, caramel, and some light woody/smokiness.
ALLLL the notes are my fave-faves.
there is no way this bottle is old because i ordered a sample from scent split (at a huge premium) very shortly after the frag was released.
smells exactly like my cassia bark essential oil. pungent cinnamon alcohol throughout the top and middle. some of the other notes maybe kinda sorta start coming through in the drydown, but very faintly and very few.
great concept, a more complex MFK grand soir (which i loooove, as well as shalimar and many other amber vanilla frags. i also love heavy cinnamon and clove, benzoin, tonka, patchouli, oud.) but horrific bad execution. huge disappointment.
