Odin 06 Amanu EDT Fragrance Review

Odin 06 Amanu


Odin 06 Amanu is a perfume inspired by Mediterranean Turkish landscapes. For me, this is one of those perfumes where the inspiration doesn’t match up at all to how I perceive it. Does this “ruin” Amanu for me? Not at all. If anything it reiterates that fragrance is enjoyable because all of our experiences and unique perceptions.

Amanu opens like green citrus, almost like orange segments on ice. Amanu becomes a sharp cedar and a cool, green, gummy galbanum. The heart adds of Southeastern-style florals – citrus blossoms and magnolias. It’s cedar, bitter green resins, ivy and floral humidity. Amanu dries down to a white musk and dry woods with a peppery galbanum. The overall feel is fresh, green and cool.

Amanu reminds me of the Southeast. It’s like a cool, shaded stream surrounded by cedar and dense greens. It’s almost New Orleans Garden District-ish with the magnolias and green ivy.

Notes listed include blood orange, green galbanum, lentisque, aged cedarleaf, jasmine sambac, magnolia, amberwood, sheer musk and live moss. Launched in 2011. PERFUMER – Kevin Verspoor

Give Amanu a try if you like fresh, green scents. Or if you like perfumes like Cartier Eau de Cartier Concentree, Aqua di Parma Fico di Amalfi, Mojo Magique,Annick Goutal Un Matin d’Orage and/or Hermès Jardins Collection fragrances

Projection and longevity are average for an EDT.

The 3.4 oz bottle retails for $165 at Luckyscent. Samples are also available for purchase.

Victoria’s Final EauPINIONCedar and cool, green galbanum. Shaded oasis in summer heat. It’s not my favorite from Odin but I think it’s a good “everyday” sort of fragrance. Light, fresh, inoffensive.

  1. I’ve been craving greens this Summer and don’t really have any in my rotation. You had me at New Orleans Garden district. I love how NO smells although I haven’t been since Katrina.

    1. Green has been my “theme” this year. I can’t get enough of galbanum and green notes.

      Nolo is a great place and I’m all about anything that reminds me of it. There is a nifty brand, Mojo Magique that is based in Louisiana. I think they offer (free?) samples on their site. They’re worth checking out. I think they capture the area really well.

  2. Gosh it sounds gorgeous, I love scents that would remind me of a rainforest, and I just love cedarwood, green notes and exotic flowers. Thank you for sharing ‘Odin’
