Amouage’s Beloved Man is a soothingly spicy, confidently comfortable, macho scent with hidden depths. It starts off with a robust but restrained burst of fresh, aromatic and spicy notes, as pepper and cardamom kick in to add a brightly tart grapefruit and piney essence as well as balsamic elemi. As the subtly sophisticated fleur middle notes start to rise, a rich chord of saffron gives a yummy, savory depth. A stout, earthy base featuring leather and guaiac radiates effortless masculinity. Beloved Man is a powerful gem in the world of perfumes. Beloved Man feels exactly as it has been intended: a macho, deep and strong.
