Perfumer Steve DeMercado: 

"I crafted notes of Olibanum, Labdanum, Benzoin, Tonka and Woods to age in the Mezcal seasoned barrel which imparted a hard-to-describe smokey/spicy veil to the exotic amber.  This turned out to be really amazing."

Reviews of AMO Batch #401 (Amber Aged in a Mezcal Seasoned American Oak Barrel) by OK Fine


AMO is my first sampling of the house of OK Fine Fragrances. AMO (Amber, Mezcal Rum, Oak) smells of a mix of the eponymous notes, so mission accomplished: sharp, boozy, woody, and a little sweet. There’s a certain acidity to the booziness that’s very enjoyable, a sharpness that actually somehow makes the mix more wearable and prevents it from veering into sweeter territory, almost a certain leatheriness. It’s really more sharp and acidic rather than spicy, also, but there are resins that serve as a great counterpoint to the acidity, though the sharpness is still detectable and enjoyable, despite the presence of benzoin, labdanum, olibanum, and tonka.

There’s something about AMO that is very familiar, too, not that it necessarily reminds me of a specific fragrance, but just other scents. It leans slightly masculine but is well-crafted to the point of being unisex. I imagine this scent would be very agreeable among adult men as a non-freshie but could prove interesting for anyone, fascination with Mezcal Rum notwithstanding.

It performs decently well but is not outstanding on projection at the onset, though it’s still dense enough near the skin and packs a punch after hours of wearing. After some time, it begins to fade but still has a nice

OK Fine Fragrances are sold on their own website and boutiques like Perfumology. AMO (and most fragrances in the line) is priced at $165 for 54ml, $90 for 30ml.

Overall, I’m a big fan of AMO and I’d recommend checking it out at Perfumology’s website, where samples are sold.
