Jubilation XXV is an example of a true Masterpiece of the Niche fragrance industry!
Jubilation XXV has this remarkable fruitiness right out of the bottle. It’s wonderfully interesting as it forms a slightly sour-bitter accord with the coriander, cinnamon, clove, and a perfectly zesty orange citrus…
This initial accord is soon joined by amazing Amouage signature frankincense! The magical resin immediately gives the fruit accord some weight, pulling it back from sweetness and focusing on the spices… These are all very distinct notes, but they are singing in a five-part harmony voiced by angels! Into the heart with rose and more resin from guaiac-wood, honey, orchid, everything in balance with the frankincense front and center but never stealing the show.
As Jubilation XXV develops, more resinous, more opulent notes are added to the mix – moss, cedarwood , and oud – but they are tamed by musk, sweet myrrh, patchouli, and salty hints of ambergris… The unique maple syrupy/curry accord of immortelle flower reveals a hint of leather in the deep and gorgeous dry-down.
Jubilation XXV is a vibrant symphony of rich Regal notes and complex accords, it is divinely sumptuous, luscious and harmonious to perfection! It is also a bright, colorful, and happy incense fragrance, with a unique personality – it comes and goes, it plays hide and seek, but at all times it is well-behaved and never intrusive… The incense seems to come alive on your skin and reads your moods, receding into the background when not needed, stepping forward when required to soothe your soul. Jubilation XXV is the quintessential incense fragrance, bar-none. This one is a must have for fragrance lovers, a true MASTERPIECE!
