The Library Collection is a remarkable collection of precious fragrances that celebrate integrity, originality and virtuosity. Amouage’s ninth volume in the Library Collection, Opus IX Eau de Parfum, studies the human nature of love and sacrifice, inspired by one of Opera’s greatest romances, Giuseppe Verdi’s La Traviata, an adaptation of the novel La Dame aux Camelias, ‘The Lady of the Camellias’. Epitomising Amouage’s brand DNA of culture and intellect, Creative Director Christopher Chong, masterfully composed the fragrance to tell a story of betrayal and redemption as portrayed by the iconic Maria Callas in the 1958 Lisbon production of the Opera.
Opus IX Eau de Parfum is a soulful interpretation of the camellia flower, the accord of which was created especially for the fragrance as the flower has no scent in its natural form. Fused with black pepper and jasmine, the camellia accord reveals a warming, free-spirited aura in the top notes, while gaiac wood, beeswax and leather combine in a contradictory heart. A final illusion of the woody, floral fragrance is created by a euphoric base of grey amber, vetiver and civet.
