As the last sun rays bid farewell to fjords of Musandam, Enclave sophisticatedly portrays the freshness trapped inside a rich, earthy warm hideaway where land meets the sea.
Blue and green notes of Spearmint and Cardamom Oils transcend the fragrance stages, giving it a freshness that lasts forever, while the pleasantly surprising Amber, Labdanum, Cinnamon Oil and Saffiano together with earthy Vetiver capture the surrounding hot mountains at that precise moment in time.
“When I created Enclave, my idea was to capture the very special light of the sun setting on the fjords of Musandam. This moment, completely out of time, conveys opposite feelings that have extrapolated with contrasting ingredients. I chose to express the deep freshness of the fjords with Spearmint and Cardamom Oils, which refresh the cliffs on which the sun has beaten down all day long. I imagined the feeling of that incredible heat with noted of AmberXtreme, Labdanum Resionoid and Cinnamon Oil, enriched with Rose Absolute and Saffiano, while earthy notes of Vetiver and Patchouli evoke hot lands and stones.” Julien Rasquinet
Amouage is the brainchild of Qaboos Bin Said, the Sultan of Oman. He gave the order to launch a perfume brand which captures, protects and preserves the centuries-old perfume traditions of Oman. Amouage means ‘wave’ in Arabic. The name was also chosen because of its uncanny resemblance to the French word for love, ‘Amour’. The flamboyant Christopher Wong, a former opera singer, is the Creative Director of Amouage. Both design and fragrances are based upon the culture of the Gulf States. Refinement and exclusiveness are top-notch priority for this brand. Furthermore, it is one of the most expensive perfume brands in the world. Amouage has also produced a gamma of bath products, scented candles, room sprays, and a collection of leatherwear which are (manually) made in Florence.
