AMOUAGE – OVERTURE WOMEN
May 8, 2022
Overture Woman by Amouage is an homage to the modern woman – bold, cultured, and full of mystique, telling the story of that once in a lifetime moment when nothing else matters. Created by master perfumer Annick Menardo, the heady fragrance is a symphony of some of the world’s rarest and most sought-after ingredients, evoking the intense emotion of a captivating opera performance. To be in the presence of Overture Woman is to bear witness to the extraordinary.
Completing the Overture narrative, Overture Woman tells the story of a confident young opera understudy who is given an opportunity of a lifetime, jumping in on a few hours’ notice for an ailing principal.
Standing in wait for the orchestra to finish playing the overture, setting the mood for her debut, she checks her gown. Wearing hundreds of layers of silk organza, with a structured pearls and beads-embellished harness, she has chosen to match it with long, dramatic, greige leather gloves, completing her dreamy ensemble. She takes a breath; she won’t shy away from the weight of the very high-profile role she’s inherited.
