The common theme among all Amouage scents is this: Be careful what you fall in love with. Because the moment you fall for the opening, it melts into the heart notes, which evolve into something else minutes later -- a process that can last for hours and hours. It's an elusive target that doesn't need your love. The lesson is not to guard your heart but to open it more. Be ready for anything. Because if Amouage is a master of facets, Bracken Woman is a fern-leather-berry-narcissus disco ball. Notes include wild berries, fern, lily, narcissus, chamomile, leather, patchouli, vetiver, and birch.
In 1983, the Sultan of Oman established Amouage in the hopes of reviving the Omani tradition of perfumery. The perfumes often feature traditional Middle Eastern perfume materials. In 2006, Amouage brought on creative director Christopher Chong, who oversaw a complete reinvention of the house and helped to expand the house's international appeal.
