Fate Woman

Eau de Parfum

by Amouage

The Scoop
Awarded 5 Stars (Masterpiece) by Luca Turin
“How time flies. It seems only yesterday (actually five full years) that Christopher Chong took over Amouage’s art direction and propelled this Omani firm, then known chiefly for its classic no-expense-spared Gold, into the first rank of perfumery. Chong is that rare bird, a natural perfumery art-director, who knows what he wants and will not give up until he finally smells it. In a recent interview with Style.com/Arabia, he said that Fate was a loud fragrance, so one expects a massively-built monster like the wonderful Ubar reissue in 2009. The surprise begins with the first puff from the spray: a fresh, radiant, powdery advance guard briefly fills the room. Seconds later, you are faced with one of the most intricate and beguiling fragrances in years. Nothing this big, complex and beautiful has been done since the first Boucheron. Though the top has a Guerlain-like appetizing feel, Fate borrows its core from Opium, i.e., woody-balsamic with an emphatic dose of the cool minty note that separates it from the merely warm, dusky Cabochard-Cinnabar style. Opium’s virtue was its novel, instantly recognizable tune, of which we eventually tired. But don’t let the reference put you off. Fate is to Opium what Mitsouko was to Coty’s Chypre: a transfiguration. The central structure is deep in there, now cloaked in a cloud of radiant dust borrowed from the unstructured opulence of Gold, plus—a brilliant touch—a dry, fresh cigar-box cedar note to guard against excessive sweetness. Loud? Possibly, but comfortably so, without harshness or distortion. Like very few fragrances, Fate delivers the rush of physical glee you get when you sit in the front row of the stalls and a great orchestra begins to play. Just don't wear it to supper.” – Luca Turin, Style.com/Arabia

Great complex scent . I appreciate to quality and the scent but far too much dusty powder for my personal taste . People keep saying this is like Opium in some way . The only way this is like Opium to me is that they are both oriental in style and long lasting. Opium in vintage extrait and EDP are still better. Sorry , personal opinion .

This is unbelievable. I am in no way a perfume reviewer, and lack the olfactory talent to accurately describe and properly review a fragrance, however i tested this and could not stop loving it. From application, this was intoxicating. I am fairly new to the niche perfume world, and love florientales, amouage house being my new favorite. I currently own Epic, jubilation, opus Iv and v. But Fate, oh my Goodness. This will be my new signature. I am dangerously in love. It is warm, feminine, deep and seductive. Super classy and in no way overpowering, but the longevity is amazing. Definitely worth the price, considering that you only need a few sprays and no reapplication is necessary. This bottle should last a very long time.

one of the most wonderful scents i've ever had the pleasure of wearing- nothing sharp here, all rounded edges. you'd think this combination of scents would be heavy but it's not- quite light but sturdy and warm. definitely saving up for a full bottle.

I received this in sample luck and unfortunately fell in love with this right away. I say unfortunately for my wallet. Starts out powdery and slightly citrusy, then turns into a spicy powerhouse reminescent of Opium. It is Opium's cousin, but I feel deserves a spot in the collection if you like spicy orientals. Huge sillage and incredible longevity - still noticeable on me after 12 hours. Yet no headache inducing heaviness. Love it!
