The fifth chapter of the second cycle of the Amouage narrative by Creative Director Christopher Chong, Portrayal is a manifestation of a person’s orientation to him or herself. A reflection of his or her unique authenticity, it is about breaking free from the cages of solitude society sets around people because their truths are often seen as shockingly unconventional.
Portrayal embodies an artist’s ability to reconnect fragments from different times and places. When society is barren, they are able to transport themselves and immerse in the freedom of rebellion that can be compared to London’s Roaring 1920’s and New York’s grooving 1980’s. With the flamboyant, glamorous and often disaffected companionship of Bright Young People, the artists lose themselves. Desperately seeking something to fill the void, they synergies with art, culture and themselves in order to recreate something infinitely indefinable.
At the heart of Portrayal Woman is a smoky yet sweet mélange created by the fusion of Craven, a Tobacco with a dusting of Vanilla. Brought together with Jasmine at its top and Elemis at its base, it recreates 1920’s liberation. The floral fragrance is for the poised and playfully refined woman who dares to defy. It is heartened with an undertone of the sensuality of Tuberose that together radiates a sultry trail of seductive sillage. Portrayal Woman was launched in April 2019.
