Opus XV King Blue
Opus XV King Blue by Amouage is an Eau de Parfum
The union of the real and the unreal, the clashing of the impossible and the mundane – the surrealistic manifest that life is never truly what it seems to be. The meeting of fire and nightshade, of juicy Mandarin, grandiose Amber and somber Oud, King Blue is an oneiric wood supreme.
SURREALISM IN SCENT
Irreverently playing with the idea of ‘blue’ scents – perfumes with decidedly conventional personalities, much like the suit-wearing figure in The Art Of Living – Opus XV opens with a bright, innocent mandarin. Pink pepper adds an attention-grabbing sparkle, while blackcurrant accentuates its sharpness. But soon, a different tune begins to play.
The sensual tones of amber link to the mandarin. Oak chips introduce woodiness. And before we know where we are, the oud has pounced – and holds us in its mesmerising spell.
