Oh Amouage how I love thee
I picked up a bottle of Ciel Pour Femme by Amouage after I got white of this gorgeous scent from my cousin. She had this fresh yet mysterious scent and I simply had to ask her what she was wearing and she revealed that it was Ciel.
A niche luxury fragrance house that draws inspiration from its birthplace of the Sultanate of Oman, infusing reference points from a rich and colorful heritage that fires the imagination of all who come into contact with its wonderful products. (Taken from thier website Amouage)
Their perfumes need getting used to, don’t be too quick to rule them out, just like most perfumes I would recommend you spray it on your wrist and forget about it and after some time you will be wondering what smells so good yup sweetie its Amouage.
An oldie but a goldie, launched in 2003 Ciel is french for sky. The name reflects the scent very well an aquatic/floral/musky scent which is light enough to wear in the day yet gives off a mysterious vibe which is suitable to wear in the evening.
The scent is not over powering and for a light scent I am impressed with its staying power.
I must admit its so hard to describe a fragrance however I find it helps to know the different scents used in it:
Top notes: Gardenia, Cyclamen, Violet Leaves.
Heart notes: Peach, Waterlily, Rose, Jasmine.mo
Base notes: Amber, Musk, Cedarwood, Sandalwood, Frankincense.
Ciel as you can see in the picture is very much loved (as i am reaching the end of it) I am without a doubt going to be getting myself another bottle as this fragrance is a staple in my collection.
Amouage have 19 stand alone stores around the world including London, Rome, Milan, Dubai to name a few and it is stocked in more than 66 prestige stores worldwide.
Ciel costs 100 RO it is pricey for a perfume but in my opinion if you want to treat yourself to a scent that is fresh yet unique this is it, after all it is the gift of kings!
I plan on visiting the Amouage Factory located in Mawaleh, where you can get a tour on how these beautiful scents are created.
My other favorites by Amouage are Journey and thier dhn oud called oud al masarat, do you own any Amouage perfumes?
