This goes on overly sweet. At first I wasn't sure if I liked it. It reminded me of the smell of red licorice and it seemed "too much". But when it sits on my skin for a while it gets a bit sharper (in a good way = it cuts the sweetness down) and more floral. I really ended up liking this a lot, to the point where I have repurchased probably 3 or 4 times. It definitely still falls into that sugary sweet category, though. So if that's not your thing, avoid. But if you like sweet fragrances, this is a good one.
This is ok. I love the other reviewers story about knowing someone who wore this and she "associates" the girl with the fragrance. I truly think that can come into play. (See my review on Ralph Lauren Blue). Sometimes a fragrance makes a person and sometimes a person makes a fragrance.
I am very "indifferent" to this perfume. I won't wear it...it is not me. But I could see another person carry it off beautifully.
That is one thing I love about these reviews. Before I ever purchase another fragrance, I read these reviews because they will make a difference in you "experience" with a fragrance. I love fragrances I did not like before. Anyway, this fragrance is pleasant, just not me.
I bought this scent because I liked it on a friend... on me it was wrong, wrong, wrong. Amor Amor ended up being so sickeningly sweet with my body chemistry that I just couldn't wear it anymore. If I smell this scent I instantly get a headache. I really wanted to like this perfume, but it just didn't work for me. I rate it a 2 because it smelled OK at first.
cheap stinky yet very strong perfume. amazing staying power to the point where in order to mask the smell to prevent anymore nausea I had to wash, then scrub my forearm (where i sprayed only a tiny amount) with a baby wipe, then cocoa butter......after a few minutes it seemed to have gotten stronger! so then i had to massage my forearm with babyoil then wipe off THEN apply a strong smelling lotion from BBW over it to at least somewhat mask the stink. it helps but i can still smell it through the strong scented lotion. this is my 3rd try with this perfume. and i was correct the last 2 times. i hate it.
Overall impression? Amor Amor is rather... insipid. The red currant and mandarin are really, really prominent, in an artificial way. The dry-down smells very similar to Dream Angels Heavenly by Victoria's Secret- there's a lot of sandalwood and clean amber- only swap out the peonies of DAH for lilies. This is a simple, but warm and invigorating perfume. I don't find it achingly sweet because the currant/citrus combo is fairly tart! I'm glad I only spent 10 bucks on this.
I've loved the smell of this since the first time I tore open a magazine that featured a small sample folded up inside. It was one of those moments where you forget all about the magazine and have a new goal: find that perfume!
I finally broke down and purchased a small bottle. 50 bucks for perfume?! Whew, that was rough, but when I got it, I didn't regret it and I use it sparingly... it's lasted me at least 6 months. I will continue to purchase this perfume until they stop making it!
I love it!! I fell in love with it from a magazine and I just had to buy it!
I have used Amor Amor for a few years now and its my go-to fragrance. Its really unique and sensual, and I will continue to buy this again and again. Love it!
Perfume is a very personal thing so the best review I think I can offer is my description and how i feel when wearing it :). I definately agree with the review who said this springs from a first love cos that's how i was feeling when i purchased this bottle! lol and it fast became my signature scent. the one word to describe is definitely romantic, as the bottle and name suggests. while it is a fruity floral and feminine, it's much more sophisticated and seductive, definately brings out a bit of the lolita in you as cliche as that sounds. i think its a strong scent, but definately not offensive. seriously, if i had to describe who would wear this... catherine zeta jones in the mask of zorro hehehe.
I LOVE this perfume, even though I don't own it. It's different from the kind of perfume I normally reach for because it's fresh, fruity and welcoming. I am usually fond of mysterious, sophisticated fragrances with lots of spices and a hint of flower or fruit (sweet orientals) - which this isn't at all. The only reason I am not buying this perfume is because it doesn't last (it's an EDT), plus it's way overpriced here in Canada (about 70 $ for a 100 ml EDT).
