Sandy mouth rinse
"Beach Hut Man" is an Amouage the world hasn't smelled yet. A divider before the Lord, where I can understand anyone he pushes hard against. But I like it better from minute to minute, from day to day, from test to test. Especially after a shower, when only his base is there. Then this is already a holiday dream of the highest quality. Before that, it is often a cacophony, through whose jumble one must patiently feel one's way. But a very interesting one that kept me happy and that I never wanted to give up... good thing I didn't!

BHM is not North Sea, not Côte D'Azur, not Dubai and not Hawaii, not South Africa or Australia - you won't find this beach on this planet. Perhaps he can be found in a distant galaxy, which would explain his very special nature. Refreshing ivy, hot sand, tickling meadow under your feet. The air is dry, the dunes glow green. A classical vibe greets and sometimes it doesn't know where to go and what it wants to be. But fortunately he never ran completely off track for me. Masculine and scratchy, in a kind of playful, positive way. Chaos that appeals to me. Too bad I clearly belong to a minority that feels the perfumer's vision. But an empty beach is much nicer anyway... or did you run away because I smell so bad?

Flacon: easy to confuse with the Sunshine Man
Sillage: loose and light is different, Amouage however still "other"
Shelf life: I was allowed to explore for 6-8 hours, wonder and let the ever improving fragrance take effect

Conclusion: Ferns, sun, Fougere, reed and fresh breath - "Beach Hut Man" is a lot, only no Amouage. Which isn't bad at all, though. Amouage may, can, should also experiment. Not easy, not always pleasant, but, with a little patience, a successful experiment. For a summer like no other. Bilious and dry. A pure theme scent and crossfire!

مهرجان خريف صلالة - Mihraǧān ḫarīf Ṣalāla or simply Charif
I think we can all agree that the naming of this potent masterpiece from Oman is completely misleading and poorly chosen. In fairness, however, it must be admitted that grumbling is always easy, whereas a better suggestion of a more appropriate name is not. After a bit of thought and some research, a more appropriate name did come to mind.

مهرجان خريف صلالة - Mihraǧān ḫarīf Ṣalāla or just Charif.

If you look a little deeper into the house of Amouage, you come across their motto of using only raw materials from Oman fairly quickly. Upon further, brief research, I came across a natural phenomenon that occurs annually around the coastal town of Salala - the Asian Southwest Monsoon Kharif. As the rain pours down on the craggy limestone in this region, it ensures that the vegetation around Salala and on the slopes of the Qara Mountains blossoms once a year, dressing everything in a robe of green.

Okay, but now where is the parallel with Beach Hut Man!!! For this it is necessary to turn the fragrance pyramid once upside down. In the now reversed order now come first of all dry, resinous and especially oriental ingredients in the form of woods, myrrh and patchouli, which represent the parched lands before the monsoon. On this dry base now fall the first raindrops and let a dense, green layer of moses, grasses and ivy grow, from which in turn rise delicate mint stems, orange blossoms and yellow umbels of galbanum.

With this association in mind, I think Beach Hut Man for an absolutely successful candidate from the house of Amouage and can not quite share the meager rating here. However, I can understand that the very dry mint in combination with the very present ivy is not everyone's cup of tea. It does not have to! ;)

Lavender, oak moss and coumarin one looks here in vain, however, resonate for my nose here clear Fougere vibes, which make me think of an oriental barber in the center of Salala.

All in all, Amouages Beach Hut Man is a beautiful, green-fresh and masculine fragrance, which thrilled me since the first sniff.

Come good thing wants to have time advice, or: Why caution is the elephant on the mother in the china shop
Idioms and proverbs have never been among my strengths, which can generally be considered manageable.
In the eighth grade, my German essay - subjectively written with a lot of hard work and dedication - on the well-known proverb "Es ist nicht alles Gold was glänzen" (It's not all gold that shines) was given a 4, because although I described in great detail the page-long, wonderfully self-imagined odyssey of a gold digger who was disappointed at the end (he followed a shimmering in the darkness for days and days, which turned out to be a reflective lens - blitz!), but unfortunately had taken the meaning of this proverb, which is actually to be grasped in a metaphorical way, all too literally.

I had a similar experience - and now, dear Mrs. Arnold, in the end, a sensible transfer is being made! - with Amouage's community average beach hut hammer After the agonizingly long, yet recent discovery of my favourite representative of this fragrance house (see commentary on "Honour Man" - like, subscribe, leave a subscription, Thumbs up, from 20,000 Likes on I give away iPads and puppies*), I succeeded in keeping all expectations for this comparatively poorly rated colleague in a healthy balance before the olfactory test run.

However, as is so often the case, I could not free myself from evoked images that could be traced back to the name alone: beach, sea, Caribbean, Southeast Asia, "summer, sun, cactus - playing featherball on the beach - blue sky, good mood and a beautiful girl on your lap" (H. Schneider, 2013).
However, what followed after spraying did not even remotely fulfil any of these ideas. Well, blue sky and good mood definitely works here anyway. The beautiful girl certainly does too, but unfortunately my lady was at work at that time But: no aquatics, no salt, no (sun) cream, no pacific flower wreath. Instead, I was sitting freshly shaved in the middle of Europe, in the flat, green North Germany - and the scent fitted here absolutely perfectly! I was a little - maybe a little very - amazed. Greenish, even slightly chlorophyll-like, discreetly Scandinavian wood (read: minimal sauna resin) with a wonderful, distinctive spiciness. At the same time never too heavy, never slapping - and yet permanently present.
Admittedly: The prelude is amouagesque harsh and needs getting used to - but what follows after about ten minutes for hours (yes, maybe even days!) is an olfactory barber of the highest quality. And, compared to his - no doubt equally successful - two sister fragrances Bracken "Clove Bomber" Man and Sunshine Man, this is definitely the most wearable and beautiful fragrance in its class.

Beach Hut Man is a wonderful fragrance with a confused prelude - and absolutely disastrously misleading name. A misnomer in pure form. I don't want to offend the creative minds behind it, they will have thought of something, but how about ... hm, yes ... how about it?
Not so easy to find a suitable name. I hereby announce the Beach Hut Naming Contest! The winner gets a heart from me on the pinboard ;)

After all these years, the following is now clear to me:
It is not all beach hut, what Beach Hut means - but rather most wonderful fair weather fougère with shower survival potential (both in this case please interpret both as positive as possible - thank you)!
Give him time - get through the harsh start ... and you will receive (good) advice ;)

Thanks for reading and for your time! br />
P.S.: Why the elephant is called caution and why he stands on the nice porcelain lady, I unfortunately do not know either.

Excursion to the mint garden
To be honest, this fragrance doesn't necessarily put me on a beach - or in a beach hut. I rather have the impression that I am sitting in a large mint bush in a hippie garden. After some time (about 45min. - 1h in my case) the mint recedes and out of the fresh one something grows that I would describe as mystical (hence the hippie connotation). The fragrance is woody and spicy.
The performance is really excellent for a fresh fragrance, with me 8h+ and it never seems too obtrusive or penetrating. However, I have to admit that due to my age (27) I wouldn't buy a whole bottle. Maybe once in 5 years... I like Beach Hut in any case really well, even if I can't quite feel the theme, but it doesn't seem to be just for me.

Straw hut meets sauna hut on the beach
On the way through the narrow beach paths past the parched bushes towards the cottage.

When spraying on I perceive a very strong straw-like note. The mint very subtle in the background. A very complex rounded fragrance DNA.

Subsequently, light resinous note paired with green nuances.

Best described with a light sauna infusion note in the straw hut :D

There is dry weathered driftwood lying around in front of the hut on the beach a few years ago. The air around the hut smells of dry wood.

A nice carefree mild tempered evening on the beach.
A scent actually melds with my imagination.

Appropriate name for this perfume.

An Amouage with pronounced long shelf life and strong sillage.

Along with Lyric Man, the best Amouage. A fougere-ish green beauty that goes on and on and on. Masculine and high quality. Worth it.

The projection and longevity is really insane. 2 sprays will last the whole day. Might be a bit too much for summer but perfect for spring.
