Our Origins

Founded in 2010, by Claude Gratianne and Tani Kampakum, ZGO Perfumery was born from a simple yet profound question among friends, "what are your favorite smells?" From hay and roses to the crispness of a campfire, the diversity of answers illuminated our mission — to explore the world's olfactory offerings and create a haven for those experiences. Our passion for fragrance is rooted in the belief that to smell is to connect deeply with the universe itself, uncovering the stories woven into each scent.

The House of Amouage perfumes

Amouage Logo

Founded over a quarter of a century ago, Amouage is a niche luxury fragrance house that draws inspiration from its birthplace of the Sultanate of Oman, infusing reference points from a rich and colorful heritage that fires the imagination of all who come into contact with its wonderful products.

Renowned for creating some of the most finely crafted and exotic fragrances in the world, the House restores artistry to perfumery to create extraordinarily beautiful scents with a distinct point of view and sources the globe for unique and the highest quality of ingredients.

Adopting an artistic approach to create an original and evocatively fragrant experience, Amouage perfumes are created by internationally recognized perfumers in Grasse in the South of France under the guidance of Amouage
Creative Director, Christopher Chong.

Amouage is an international luxury fragrance house renowned for creating some of the most finely crafted perfumes in the world. Founded in the Sultanate of Oman in 1983 to be ‘The Gift of Kings’, the House has redefined the Arabian art of perfumery and garnered a global reputation for bringing innovative modernity and true artistry to all its creations. Masterfully paying tribute to its heritage, Amouage is a unique fusion of East meets West that defines avant-garde opulence. It expresses the contemporary majesty of Oman - a historic trading center for incense and myrrh - around the globe, with arresting and alluring collections that speak to a sophisticated, confident and well-traveled discerning clientele who seek something compellingly precious, extraordinary and personal, every day.

Amouage perfumes carry a sophisticated signature that attests to unparalleled craftsmanship, quality, and creative integrity. Using only the finest and most special ingredients from around the world, Amouage perfumes are
composed of world-recognized perfumers in Paris, Grasse, Geneva, and New York. Each creation is carefully handmade and tastefully blended to present an enveloping patina and a long-lasting elegant trail. Florals are multi-faceted, spices and woods juxtapose harmoniously and rare ingredients create intriguing contrasts.

An icon in the perfumery world, Amouage has built a coveted legacy with a repertoire of over 50 unrivaled perfumes all attesting to a unique vision and quest for quality. Critically-acclaimed masterpieces include Gold, Jubilation, Reflection, Honour, and Interlude to name but a few. Over the years, these have become iconic classics, forever soaked into the pages of perfumery art chronicles.

Arabian perfume culture lies at the heart of Amouage and is woven into the very fabric of every creation. Today, the House looks forward with great expectations to building on the legacy of its past and forming a bridge of continuity between what has gone before and that which is to come, without ever forgetting the brand’s roots in its home of Oman.

Amouage- A renowned history of Arab Craftsmanship

His Highness Sayyid Hamad bin Hamoud al bu Said had a dream to restore the great Arabian art of perfumery to the region.

Amouage is a luxury perfume house established in Oman in 1983 by the Sultan of Oman. Amouage uses traditional for the Middle East perfume ingredients such as agarwood, incense, musk, rose and spices, but the developers of the scents are perfumeurs from the major fragrances & flavor companies.

The first Amouage fragrance (Amouage was its previous name, now it is known as Amouage Gold) was created by French perfumeur Guy Robert in 1983. Guy Robert has created his masterpieces for Hermes, Dior, Rochas...

Almost all of the perfumes are in the traditional Amouage bottles: bottles with women's scents recall the shape of the Palace Ruwi Mosque in Muskat (Oman); bottles with men's scents have a shape of Khanjar, the traditional dagger of Oman.

Designer Amouage has 108 perfumes in our fragrance base. The earliest edition was created in 1983 and the newest is from 2021. Amouage fragrances were made in collaboration with perfumers Guy Robert, Elise Benat, Bernard Ellena, Alexandra Carlin, Emilie (Bevierre) Coppermann, Karine Vinchon Spehner, Lucas Sieuzac, Jean-Claude Ellena, Leslie Girard, Pierre Negrin, Bertrand Duchaufour, Daniel Visentin, Cécile Zarokian, Daniel Maurel, Dorothee Piot, Annick Menardo, Gras, Creations Aromatiques, Bruno Jovanovic, Randa Hammami, Cecile Zarokian, Angeline Leporini,
Nathalie Feisthauer, Violaine Collas, Maurice Roucel, Mackenzie Reilly, Domitille Michalon Bertier, Julien Rasquinet, Michele Saramito, Jacques Flori, Alberto Morillas and Richard Herpin.
