An overwhelmingly gorgeous, heady, intoxicating, too much, honey sweet heavy and cloying fragrance. All wimps just f*ck off and get a life...
Age: 44-55 Skin: Combination, Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Green
Bwoah, this is real LOUD and brash, reminds me of something that could be a mixture between bugspray and furnishing polish. Dreadful.

This is a very loud floral, but an expertly composed, brilliant one. It stands alone in the category of honeyed, spiced tuberose with a tangerine twist. I agree with the reviewer who called this a "red-carpet jasmine," although on me the cardamom and tangerine stand out equally, and the tuberose gives it an extra boost of sillage. I would caution and say this is for the white floral lover *only,* and you really must love strong florals, it does have a similar feel overall to Vivienne Westwood's Boudoir (minus the dizzying tobacco), and with jasmine and tuberose instead of rose as the main floral player/s.
Truly a voluptuous classic, for a full-blown woman ready to slay 'em with her glory, it is a super confident fragrance, not for the faint of heart, or for close quarters around those with perfume allergies! Certainly NOT for the office. For a windy winter day at the park and a coffeeshop with a SO, nothing would beat it. Somehow this reminds me of the late August sunshine while laying in the grass, listening to peacocks at the San Francisco zoo. I've had a FB for about a year now; I don't reach for it often, but when I do, I LOVE it. It is certainly one that lingers in the mind, quite unforgettable.
My 'largesse' female wild cat also loves it as well, it is the only perfume she tries to lick off my arm. It is a very womanly honeyed scent, with a late dry down of a faint simulacra of musk, (not a real musk) from the combination of honey and cedar. Perhaps it is for the bengal tiger women amongst us, who don't really give a damn what polite company thinks.

Amoreusse is a veritable cornucopia of sensual notes. This fragrance has everything - gourmand, woods, flowers, fruits, in a perfect balance. Gently regal. For a sensual woman (or man) who appreciates all good things of the earth.

Red-carpet jasmine, ravishing and unique. Amoureuse is for when I want to feel glamorous. There is an unusual spice to it—possibly the boxwood?—that has an immediate effect on my San Francisco-born boyfriend. Amoureuse has more spice than A la Nuit. Warmer than Joy. Big sillage, tenacious. I’ll never be without this because it would be hard to finish a bottle.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium, Warm Hair: Red, Medium Eyes: Hazel
Very lovely and spirited. It's a girl-next-door kind of pretty, yet subtly sensual fragrance with a whole lot of white florals and a little bit of honey to skank it up in the drydown. The honey, while not sweet, prevents it from smelling like every other floral. I'm not a fan of white florals, so I can't stomach this. But I do appreciate its composition.

Horrible! Not at all what I expected. This is a very heady floral, strong on the tuberose. It dried down to toilet bowl cleaner. Serious scrubber for me.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Normal, Fair-Medium Hair: Brown Eyes: Hazel
L’Amoureuse is one of my favorite fragrances. With its sumptuos and velvety finish it is regal and comfortable at the same time.
Reportedly inspired by the smell of Victoria’s box blooming trees in San Francisco, this fragrance starts with the bitter green smell of unripe tangerines, only slightly spiced.
The bitterness (which I still have to decide whether I appreciate or not) quickly recedes to reveal a drenched-with-light heart of creamy white flowers set on a warm and sweet base of honey and woods.
Notes: tangerine, cardamom, tuberose, jasmine, ginger lily, honey, moss and sandalwood
I dab the fragrance (I own the sample vial), which might explain why I do not find it an overwhelming sillage monster: it delicately envelops me in a luminous veil that lasts the whole day. The application method might also account for the fact that the overall feeling of l’Amoureuse is more honeyed deliciousness than floral assault. If you can’t stand honey, you might not wish to try L’Amoureuse, though the very prominent honey note here does not turn sour: it is warm, woody, not too sweet, slightly spiced and extremely comforting, holding the white flower bouquet delicately but firmly in place.
Applied with a light hand, L’amoureuse is great on a grey winter day at work, simply gorgeous on an evening out, and –surprise surprise!- it works wonders also in the terrible heats of summer. I love it.
[When I finish my sample, I will certainly go FB (which is spray), and will report back if I feel any difference in feel by spraying].
p.s. If you like L'amoureuse you should also try Andy Tauer's Rose chypré or viceversa: the two fragrances share the same structure and the sunshine-in-a-bottle-feel (bitter tangerines on top of a floral heart + a honeyed-woody base. AT's RC replaces the white flowers of L'amoureuse with a beautiful and expensive Rosa Damascena essential oil. I still prefer L'amoureuse, but I would hate not to have both perfumes around!!!).

My first fragrance from this line was Bois de Paradis and I fell hopelessly in love. BdP is one of my top florals. I was tempted to order Amoureuse blind as the notes looked so appealing but thank god I decided to purchase a sample first. First of all so many reviewers consider this to be a silage monster, which I was hoping for, but it did not work this way for me. Normal silage. I also find the fragrance to be a bit on the sweet side. It seems to be missing that special ingredient to take it over the top. I was able to sense the Tangerine very profound in the opening note with some jasmin however the cardamom which I was hoping for was just not there. I will pass on the full bottle.
Tangerine, cardamom, tube rose, jasmine, moss of cedar, sandalwood, honey

At last.....after almost a hundred bottles of perfume.....i've found my HG !
Age: 30-35 Skin: Acne-prone, Olive Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
Reading the notes of all the Delrae's, I'd never thought I'd find this the most appealing. While I usually go for greens and citruses, Eau Illuminee was disappointingly sharp and generic, had a spirit but no soul. On the other hand, Amoureuse had that depth that I was seeking. A heady mix of tangerines and ginger and warm spices with a touch of honey. A potent floral green with a warmth I needed to get me through winter. Cozy and delectable and what a wonderful sillage!
Age: 36-43 Skin: Oily, Olive, Warm Hair: Red, Curly, Medium Eyes: Hazel
Amoureuse is incredible. It is radiant upon application, and it's sultry, and extremely sensual as it develops. If you are a fan of Annick Goutal Heure Exquise or Vivienne Westwood Boudoir, you must try Amoureuse, which I think is a sort-of "sister scent" to these two. Amoureuse is a powerful, slightly sweet, very, very sexy fragrance, but it smells "expensive", elegant, and sublime. Lasting power is fabulous. I have a feeling this is going to be one of my all-time favorite fragrances!

The opening bursts with Christmas spices; some cardamom, a touch of cinnamon blending in, a buxom but not plump jasmine as a base and rays of seville orange to lighten it up. I can really picture the fire throwing its sparks in the fireplace while I'm tucking in nicely in the Amoreuse blanket. Later on, the orange disappears and leaves room for the jasmine to act, accompanied by a sweet honey note which makes me think of candied apples and almonds. I sense no full tuberose whatsoever, all I smell is a dry jasmine and later a moss note, not a wet, heavy one but a woodsy-dry moss which adds another dimension. Still, I have to call Amoreuse a soft scent, no sharp edges but a cozy scent for the friendly atmosphere of Christmas. Staying power is also great.
I love it!
Age: 36-43 Skin: Sensitive, Fair Hair: Brunette, Wavy, Fine Eyes: Hazel
I don't know what caused me to try Amoureuse, because it's sometimes described as a heady sillage monster with skank, which isn't usually my style.
But I'm so glad I did. This is one gorgeous perfume, possibly my special occasion HG. Sexy and sophisticated without a hint of vanilla or powder (thank goodness--neither works well on me). I get a hint of tangerine and cardamom on the top notes, but both are subtle, not sharp or cloying. e The flowers soon come out and play--heady white flowers, but they stay fairly restrained (and gorgeous) on me. Honey then comes in, along with a slight, pleasing skank.
I just can't stop sniffing my wrist when this is on. And a few dabs provide hours and hours of sniffing pleasure. At this rate, it will take a while to go through two samples. I'll be saving up for the full bottle, which looks gorgeous itself.

I unwittingly received a sample of this, thrown in as an extra in a swap. I became obsessed with owning a bottle and got my wish last fall. This is my weekend scent as it's too strong and bizarre for work, too sensual and "I am woman, hear me roar" for everyday use. The best part may be catching whiffs of Amoureuse on my clothes and hair the next day. This fragrance is a true treasure and would be my choice if I had to choose one perfume.... LOVE it so much.
02/05/13 EDIT: The atomizer does not work properly and ends up dripping and spilling more perfume than actually end up where it's supposed to. The company is unwilling to fix this matter, so it's become a bottle of perfume I now dislike due to the fact it's very frustrating and messy!
Age: 36-43 Skin: Dry, Fair Hair: Brunette Eyes: Hazel
The name is very well chosen: I am totally in love with this. To me, this is the ultimate sexy romantic, both retro and modern in different ways. I can smell the jasmine and the honey from the start to the finish. The tuberose is not quite in your face as the jasmine. It does have an indolic quality to it so if you're not a big fan of Joy or Une Fleur de Cassie, you may not like this one either. The bottle is very beautiful as well: sleek and on the heavy side.
Age: 44-55 Skin: Dry Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
Wowza! I have to completely rewrite my previous review. This starts out with a fresh green floral. It then became a tuberose, then it tended toward jasmine, and then the real nature of this beast came out. It is wonderfully, delightlfully skanky. While smelling the animalics, the florals would peak through every once in a while through them, and that was utterly delightful too--like a hide-and-seek. Great job on this one! BTW, the persistence is incredible. Now, at 11 hours after application, I am smelling honey. Only wishing I had more to apply.....
Age: 36-43 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
Greens? Hyacinth? What? I get sweet cardamom and nothing else, all through drydown. It's very pretty and comforting and I like it, but wow, there's just not much else there. I would recommend trying it, definitely, because it's very nice, but greens? Bitter? Not getting that at all. Nor do I get tangerine, tuberose, jasmine or cedar moss. Huh.
Age: 56 & Over Skin: Combination, Fair Hair: Blond Eyes: Green
Whilst not a "chopper" (as in chop my arm off) or a "scrubber", I do not think I will be purchasing this fragrance. I do like the complex greens and hyacinth with spice and whatever is in this but it is just not that great on me. I just do not think this perfume smells like the notes that are attributed by the written description of the scent.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Normal, Fair-Medium, Cool Hair: Blond, Straight, Medium Eyes: Blue
I can understand the raves for this scent, because the sillage definitely has an appealing airy green and fresh floral aura. But upon closer sniff of the skin, it has a decidedly sharp and unfriendly character - green and bitter powder. I have never smelled a box tree, so I have no idea if this is supposed to work with the proper chemistry to produce the desired effect. YMMV.
