Its a very sharp and strong Oriental so far I dont care for it Amarige is overpowering on me At first I hated this fragrance The top notes as they are not subtle at all and scream out to be noticed but So far the dry down is ok but I still ask who would wear this to a wedding? It really smells like a winter fragrance to me. Its very strong and over powering and could offend others I have let it dry down and still find it sharp Its just not for me Although It smells wonderful in the bottle. Just dont be foolish enough to uncork the Genie from the bottle The only way I can wear this is to put a little on a q tip and diffuse it a little before putting it on but can not use full strength. And even after all that I still dont really like it

I'm pleasantly surprised, Amarige Mariage looks so dull to me, but it dries down to a powdery, soft vanilla scent with a hint of cinnamon. It's refined, but maybe a bit too mature for me to buy a whole bottle.

This smells awfully, sickeningly sweet on me. Instead of the depth of ceylon cinnamon this supposedly shares with organza indecence, I get a flat, stale sweetness topped with medicinal, screechy patch. I suppose the right chemistry is the key to this one and recommend sampling before buying.

Amarige Mariage would be gorgeous if it weren't for the patchouli. The patch registered to my nose as that honey sweetened tuberose with the bitter middle you see in fragrances sometimes and it wasn't till I was reading some previous reviewers who mentioned the patch that I parsed what I didn't like as that. But in the opening, the patch is what is ruining it for me.
Amarige Mariage opens with patch, a pretty bergamot, a lovely indolic jasmine, and a gently powdery sweet benzoin, which help balance the patchouli. As Amarige Mariage dries down, the patchouli recedes, but the mixture of that thin, oversweet patchouli used in too many fragrances these days stays in the base, although it deepens to a more resinous (and tolerable) patch. A very rich, deep vanilla also moves forward.
In midframe, the jasmine moves forward as well along with a very pretty cinnamon. By twenty minutes in, Amarige Mariage is mostly vanilla, benzoin, and a light cinnamon with hints of the patchouli in the bottom and a light floral top. At thirty minutes a pretty, skin-scent musk opens out.
This fragrance bridges, in an interesting way, summer florals and winter sweet orientals. However I do wish the patchouli had never been added, and either sandalwood, oak, or aoud had been used instead. EDITED: Over time I've started enjoying this more (upped lippies one); I can definately smell the connection to Indecence now. This isn't at all related to Amarige. I'd say it's the patchy sister to Indecence. This would have been amazing if they'd used oak.

Quite like Mariage by Givenchy. Doesn't knock me out or make me want to bathe in it. Like the sherbet like sparkle of it. A good perfume to have in your collection if not to wear all the time. Flowery, sherbet, definite sparkle to it. When I first spray it I can smell Dior Doce Vita, but only for the first few moments. Drydown is good and sweetish.

I once approached a perfect stranger in the grocery to compliment her fragrance and ask what it was. It was Amariage, a gift from her DH. I wanted to know the name so that I would NEVER EVER buy or unknowingly swap for that nasty stuff on MUA. I've smelled it on others several times since then and it's still horrendous. GAH!!!!!

I don't care for any of the other Givenchy sents, but this scent is gorgeous. However unless you've just sprayed it or someone is up close and personal it won't be noticed as it is not perticularly strong. This is my favorite thus far the only reason I don't give it a 5 is because it's not strong otherwise it is one a a selective few that I favor just for me:).
PS- If you're wondering I generally go for oriental scents. This is oriental with a mimosa kicker which makes it a tad more interesting then your traditional oriental scents.

On my skin this stuff is truly delightful! It smells like a mix of orange blossom (the blossom, not the fruit!) and cinnamon - a perfect blend, the cinnamon is there but it's never too overbearing; it just gives the orange blossom a tad of a bite. And the drydown... ahh, the most beautiful vanilla I've ever smelled. And I hardly ever like vanilla in fragrances! But this one is so creamy, and sooo natural. Sort of like the vanilla in Chantecaille's Frangipane. Like the vanilla when you open a vanilla pod. Sooooo good.
The hubby loves his stuff too. Whenever I wear it, he comments on how great I smell.
I sniffed this fragrance in the bottle quite a few times in the past and always ran away half gagging, but once I finally sprayed some on I was sold. Don't buy this before you try it. But if it works on your skin - and if you like soft vanilla - you'll love it!
Oh, and I admit, the bottle looks cheap and uninspiring - but when the potion inside it is this good, I really don't care!

I sprayed this at Sephora, it was different so I asked for a sample. When I tried it I can't get past the mint note in the opening. It reminds me too much of toothpaste. The drydown is nice, oriental with spices and vanilla. I think it's a nice enough fragrance, just doesn't happen to be in my category of favorites.

The scent of a wedding day . The incense of the church, the heady flowers, sparkling champagne. Oriental chypre with notes of bitter orange, magnolia, cinnamon & patchouli.

I love this scent! I like that it isn't overwhelming or heavy.
Lots of compliments with this one. I grade this an A+.

Well... I don't say that I hate this perfume, but I can't find anything good about it either. Even the bottle is common.
I think this scent is a bit too sharp and strong. Maybe it's because of my chemistry...

I tried a couple (or should I say 5-6!) perfumes some days ago. Out of all, I picked a nice, warm floral but spicy rather than sweet as florals tend to be, named Amarige Marriage. I was intrigued because I can't stand sweet perfumes and I liked the idea of wearing a floral now that the winter is almost over. Well, I had put on a lot of fragrances and I thought I might have them mixed up, so I went to the mall the next day to be sure. I tried amarige and amarige marriage. I can't wear amarige, too floral, sweet for me, but amarige mariage I love. I picked it up and haven't regreted it since. It's fresh, spicy (a little) and certainly makes me feel that spring is finally here. Lasting power is good though not excellent. Unoffensive, perfect for everyday in the office if you don't overdo it.

Tried out a spritz for the first time. Bitter orange over patchouli. Some cinnamon and spices in there too. I don't get "romance" from this. It smells more earthy and warm, not floral and lush. A pretty oriental blend, but not different from other neroli/ patch blends I've smelled before (L'Occitane, Gaultier). I thought this might capture the lovely oriental spice notes of Amarige, without the heavy aldehydes, but it is very different to my nose. The spices are there, but the patchouli is dominant. I'm not a fan of patchouli, so I would not purchase.

I guess the only word to describe this fragrance is SPARKLING !
I do not understand why a lot of people think the middle note is cloying.
I find that it fizzes and bubbles throughout like champange. After a while it turn into soft musk on my skin. I often spray this just to cheer me up.

I am in love with this fragrance!!! I wanted a warm oriental type scent for winter and this is exactly what I was looking for. I went to the department store not knowing which perfume I was going to come home with and I wanted my mom's opinion since I trust it the most and she also loved this scent. I tried it on and it smelled even better on my skin than on the strip of paper. I'm not great as describing fragrances... all I know is that on me, Amarige Mariage smells warm, like sandalwood mixed with flowers and vanilla (which I love) I don't know if it's one of the ingredients, but it smells like it on me. This scent is everything all in one, elegant, sexy, feminine and comforting like a warm blanket on cold winter nights. It's definitely not a teenage perfume, it's a lot more refined... but I never liked those bubble gum candy type fragrances even when I WAS a teenager!
As for the bottle... I love it! A little round bottle with a stopper that's supposed to symbolize the tulle of a bridal veil... indicative of the fragrance name. I'm so glad I discovered this fragrance!

This was not nearly as strong as I was expecting (which is good). I sampled this first; which has now become a pattern for me so I don't invest in a fragrance that I'm not going to enjoy. I have to agree with some previous reviews that this is a bit too sweet & powdery. It doesn't smell unpleasant, but it's not what I'm looking for. The sweetness in particular is just a tad cloying.
