Francis Kurkdjian conceives his fragrances with people in mind, and what he wanted for Amyris homme was to express the quintessence of the good-bad guy. He also conceives his collection as a fragrance wardrobe for every moment of the day and with the Amyris his'n'hers duo, he wanted scents that could be shrugged on for daywear: chic, but comfortable enough not to demand major commitment before spritzing.
Amyris is a wood formerly known as West Indies sandalwood, which draws its name from the Greek amyron, “intensely fragrant”: it was in rediscovering its scent during exercises with his apprentice that Francis Kurkdjian was inspired to use it. The word itself included “iris”, which yields the core accord of the fragrance with amyris, which straddles cedar and sandalwood.
Amyris homme plays on the tough-tender duality with an aromatic opening brightened by a squirt of mandarin. For his iris note, the perfumer uses iris resinoid, which develops striking dark chocolate facets. It is this non-gourmand chocolate effect that Amyris homme plays on to express dusky masculine tenderness by setting the iris resinoid in a coconut, coffee and tonka bean, with its hay and tobacco facets suffused with a bitter-almond flavor.
Unapologetically masculine – but with a twist – Amyris homme is as easy to slip on as a favorite white shirt and jeans outfit, yet chic enough to carry you into the cocktail hour. A classic.
