The fifth chapter of the cycle of the Amouage narrative, Portrayal is a manifestation of a person’s orientation to himself. A reflection of his unique authenticity, it is about breaking free from the cages of solitude society set around people because their truths are often seen as shockingly unconventional.
Portrayal embodies an artist’s ability to reconnect fragments from different times and places. When society is barren, they are able to transport themselves and immerse in the freedom of rebellion that can compare to London’s Roaring 1920’s and New York’s grooving 1980’s. With the flamboyant, glamorous and often disaffected companionship of Bright Young People, the artists lose themselves.
It is an olfactive depiction of bohemian culture. Its woody and leather aroma exudes an air of exquisite audacity. It is about the arrogance and social tension in the world’s cultural discourse. With Vetiver at its heart and top notes of Violet Leaves, Portrayal Man emits a dandy yet masculine impression.
