Imitation ManSold Out
One moment, one sensory experience, can completely alter a child's perception of the world. For Amouage Creative Director Christopher Chong, that moment happened the first time he experienced New York City as a child in the 1970's- the vibrant street culture, the breathtaking diversity, and the very sights, sounds and smells of the greatest city in the world during a tumultuous and consequential era threw open a door to life's infinite possibilities. Imitation is his attempt to capture that vibrancy.
Imitation Man represents '70s NYC in bold, sensual, refined leather tones, opening with electric citrus and tingling spices that evoke blinding sunshine on bustling asphalt streets. The leather at the center of the fragrance is rich, soft suede, refined with lush rose, buttery orris and bright violet. An atmospheric base of spicy, smoky, animalic notes gives the thrilling authenticity of a smoke filled discotheque. Imitation Man will take you away to a time and place of chaos and beauty- and the endless adventures that follow.

Good scent but dies on my skin fairly quickly
Such an intriguing fragrance! Truly captures the spirit that it was going for, a stroll down a busy lane in NYC in the 70s. To me, the scent profile conjures up the image of that weird oily substance you see leaking from cars in a parking lot on a hot summer day. Weird description, I know, but that's just what comes to mind. Great experience from ScentSplit as well, quick shipping and fun sampling experience!
When I received a decant of this scent, I was disappointed with this fragrance. I can't say I hate it, but it's difficult to like. The first 5 or 6 hours smell like bug spray. It's also too floral and powdery. I heard it has a leather note, but i don't smell that at all. After it dries down for 5 or 6 hours it's actually kind of nice. I'm too afraid to wear this one in public.
