Epic Man by Amouage is an Amber Woody fragrance for men.
Epic Man is an exquisite exposition of the dignity of oud wood in a complexity, barely seen in any other perfume. The pink pepper that straddles, is highly infused with the benchmark of Amouage – olibanum – and a blend of smoldering spices that heads through the heart with myrrh and geranium to establish the essential masculine gentility. The oud wood and leathery facets of castoreum, plus the burning incense occupy the entire composition with an omniscient spicy incense fragrance.

Epic man is another complex fragrance by a somewhat controversial fragrance house. They can be quite expensive but it’s for good reason. Amouage is known for bold, complex, and controversial perfumes using some of the best perfume ingredients on the planet. Of the few fragrances from Amouage that I have tried, I’ve liked them all, some better than others. But it’s never one sniff and your mind is all made up. No, this is like watching a movie or watch band rehearsal. You need to watch it through to the end to make final judgement. It’s so complex, so much chemistry going on, and such a high volume of perfume oils in the fragrance that it takes a little patience. Sometimes, it can be like a beautiful storm. It begins with so much passion and force but after it dies down you start to see the beauty in the storm-the magical things it does and can do. Just don’t judge this fragrance on the first 10-25 minutes after initial spraying. It’s a bit powerful until it settles onto the skin.
Epic has a beautiful dry down, just give it time. It’s sweet, amber, wood on the dry down. It’s very classy on the dry down. Classy and I believe intimidate enough to get close to someone without being intrusive. For a timid person, this might not be for you. It is more of a bold, masculine perfume for men, but the dry down is worth it. The boldness dies down some with the dry down I believe. It’s just the right amount of opulent-not excessive. My opinion to much emphasis is put when to wear. It’s good for like business meetings but I think it can be way more causal. Make it yours. If it feels right, do it!
Amouage is one of the most interesting houses out there. Overpriced? I don’t’ know, is it? That goodness for Scent Split! But I also know from fooling around with hobby perfuming that materials are not cheap. I can get many of the same ingredients, but there’s many I can’t get because they’re captive materials. I respect Niche perfumers out there. There’s so much work that goes into this wonderful world of niche perfumery to bring us new and exciting products. Not to mention expensive equipment.
It takes a while to study all the notes in Epic man; there are many. It is my conviction that the styrax and musk sweeten the other perfume notes on the dry down. If you like any classiness, balsamic incense, and masculine boldness it is a much try. Beautifully done!
I bought a decant of this fragrance because I was unsure if I would like it. At first I thought it smelled like smoked deer hide. However, I just recently came back to it and loved it! Now I get this fresh spicy cedar/pine note. It might come off a little smoky on the initial spray, once it dries it's definitely a fresh fragrance.
I ordered a pretty expensive cologne for my first time. I was a bit nervous but did my research and came to the conclusion that they were trusting. I got my cologne shipped pretty quick and confirmed authenticity upon arrival. I order a bottle of Creed for reference. I will definitely buy from them again.
It's a nice scent but with a name like epic man I wasn't expecting an epic fragrance that's not this in my humble opinion.
