Given all the warnings of the strength of this, I only put on a dot of the perfume. It is gorgeous. Perhaps I didn't put on enough to pick up all the notes listed, because what I get is tuberose plus more tuberose, every bit as high quality as that from L'Artisan. However, the listed notes are: topnotes: peach, plum, orange, mandarin, with the sweetness of rose wood and neroli; heart of mimosa, neroli, tuberose, gardenia and acacia with a gourmand hint of black currant; base of musk, sandalwood, vanilla, amber, Tonka bean and cedar. I've had it on for 15 hours and only now can smell the basenote of cedar. Perhaps the other notes came and left as I slept.

Quite nice and interesting fragrance. Reminds me of tropics... Not strong at all on me. Also smells a bit like a paper, books. Goes well on clean skin beneath a cream.
The main drawback to me is the low strength and longevity of this fragrance.

Amarige is a perfume, that I keep going back to. I absolutely fell in love with this perfume, when I first smelled it almost 20 years ago. By now I almost feel, that the smell is too young for me (I am 38 years now), but I do still love it, and I find it extremely sensual, even though it is in no way heavy or a headache-starter either.
Very unique scent. The bottle looks a bit cheep though, but who cares, when the inside is so gorgeus:-)

I was looking for a new fall/winter fragrance that will be nice to wear for day and night. I didn't want something so heavy like my usual winter scent, Dior Addict. Both Addict and Amarige are sexy full bodied scents. However, I see it as Addict being the passionate back shoved to the wall sex and Amarige to be the spooning and kissing after the sex. Amarige reminds me of a cashmere sweater that wraps you up in warmth and makes you feel luxurious and comfortable. Amarige is a rich scent however it doesn't suffocate you or overpower the room. A little goes a long way. On me, I get very little citrus and fruit. The foral, spice and wood notes really warm up to my chemistry. Amarige is a very warm and slightly intoxicating scent that is geared for a mature following.
Notes:Neroli, Rosewood, Violet Leaves, Citrus Notes, Gardenia, Mimosa, Melon, Peach, Plum, Cashmereon Wood, Tonka Bean, Vanilla.

This scent came from the era of power. Power ballads, power singers ... and powerhouse perfumes. Whilst I am not adverse to all powerful scents I found the lingering intensity of this one veered toward the unpleasant side.
Like a huge bowl of fruit can smell wonderfully delicious, that same bowl of fruit can also at times become slightly cloying, especially if some of those fruit are over-ripe. Whilst not exactly unpleasant you feel a need to distance yourself from that pungently fruity intensity.
I feel the same about this perfume. It's not completely unpleasant but there's something within the notes that reminds me of fruit that is so ripe that it's beginning to turn ... and for me it spoils the whole scent.

but personaly i just didn't into it. Perfect for my mom,not for me.

I have a Tokyo Milk edp, Song in D Minor, that a friend says reminds her of Amirage. Indeed, very similar. With one on each wrist Amirage seems to be the higher quality fragrance, but the other suits my body chemistry better. There's something vaguely bitter that I think is just how it reacts on me, rather than the perfume itself.

Amariage is beautiful in EXcEPTIONALLY tiny doses...by that I mean 1 spray. This stuff is heaven when applied to clean skin in the evening and very minuscule amount. It attracts men like crazy. This is super femininine. I know some young ladies can carry it but is say leave this to the 30-60 crowd. This is a mature scent.

Perfumes by esteem popular Fashion Houses of yesteryears such as Givenchy always yields high standards fragrances where each and every launched was a work of art.
To me, a great fragrance creation should possesed at least the basic qualities:
1) Has its very own character and not a copy cat of some other fragrances.
2) Unique and not like the rest similar smelling juices where, one do not smell much different from another, that is sadly flooding the market nowadays.
3) Able to strongly invoke an either you love it or hate it feeling and that's it! No in betweens.
4) Has an individual identity where a single whiff, you'll be able to immediately recognized it.
5) Once sniffing it, you'll immediately know that much work and effort has been instilled in its creation, unlike the ones (lost count of these recent releases) that were composed in a hush hush pace just for the sake of filling in the market and with only one mission in mind...$$$ where quality is nearly always compromised.
With that said, all earlier Givenchy creations are wonderful and Amarige is no exception.
It may be too strong initially, but when it dries down, the real beauty of the perfume will prevails....
Alas, it is so hard to come across new creations such as this now and thank goodness, despite its reformulation, it still smells like Amarige.
Final words before summing my review, this perfume is for a Women (who is not afraid to use what she likes instead of using something that she does not like, but just to pleased other instead)!!!

I'm afraid I don't agree that it can't be compared to anything else. Check out Revlon's Wildheart! Dead ringer. 1.7 oz for $14. Got it at fragrancenet. Matching body spray to go with it. Not that I'm crazy about Amarige or Wildheart...they are strong peach, and that doesn't do it for me. But that's just me...if you like peach and/or Amarige, absolutely look at Wildheart!

I used this in my teens, I remember really liking my first bottle, and a couple of years later I got another, and it just smelled rank and fusty to me. My body chemistry must have changed. Just thinking of this perfume brings back the smell and I don't think I could stomach smelling it once more!

It smells great, and my friends love the fagrence and smell. I use it quite often, and I wear it on my clothes. It is my other favorite than Chanel
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Tan Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
I wish I could love this perfume because it smells so amazing on many women I know but on me-- not so much.
I gave my bottle to my mom ( it's her favourite perfume. )

My mom started wearing this perfume while I was in high school. I always wanted to wear it for special occasions. I asked to use it so much my parents bought me some. That was about 10 years ago, and I'm still in love with this perfume. I will probably wear it the rest of my life. I love it that much. I constantly get compliments on this scent. It lasts ALL DAY. It's a serious, hardcore perfume, so it's best used at night or special occasions. And one spritz is all you need. And as many other reviewers have said, MEN LOVE IT! It's very sexy.

This is my signature scent. So unique it cannot be compared to any other. I have almost 50 scents in my perfume collection and I always go back to this one when I want to be remembered. Men looove it. I first purchased this fragrance for myself in high school around '91 or '92. Many girls went out and bought the same perfume but ALL of the boys commented on how they had never smelled such an awesome perfume on a girl. Silly, but people seem to really like it. Of all the scents I own, my hubby prefers this one. He says when he thinks of me, this is the scent that he always remembers. I love all my perfumes for their uniqueness but this one is my favorite. It is sort of a white floral light oriental fragrance.
Top Note: Plum, Peach, Orange Blossom, Violet
Middle Note: Ynag-Ylang, Jasmine, Tuberose, Black Currant
Base Note: Casmerande, Musk, Sandal, Vanilla
Smells a bit strong when first sprayed on and then adjusts to your chemistry beautifully.

This is one of my new favorites! I tried it on a whim at Macy's and liked it rightaway. On me it's an oriental floral, a nice warm winter scent, not too flowery thank goodness as I can't stand anything overly floral....yes this is a floral but not sickeningly so.

This is the scent of sadness for me, slightly bitter, oriental and flowery, I haven't smelled anything even remotely like it. I mostly detect the tuberose and the plum. Don't get me wrong, it's definitely unique and absolutely gorgeous, mature, mysterious and elegant, but not a daily scent for me by any means. There's just something about this perfume that burdens me.

This is one of those fragrances that is so unique that it can't possibly be mistaken for any other perfume you've had. Givenchy really pulled it off with this one. I'd first become a fan when I was in high school. All of my friends were wearing 'Tommy Girl' which was ok, but even at a young age I was always craving for a more dramatic fragrance.
Though for me this is not a daily scent, I do love to wear this when I'm going to be out somewhere special. The longevity and uniqueness make Amarige a memorable perfume.

My favorites are generally sweet/floral/musk scents and am not such a fan of aldehydes or patchouli or moss-green fragrances (though I do love sweeter green florals like Cabotine). Amarige is probably the closest to my signature scent. It is sweet, lush and super long lasting, very strong (a little teeny bit goes a long way). I don't like defining women's "class" level by their fragrance; a schlub could wear #5 and still be a schlub, and a lady could wear this or even Pink Sugar - in the right dose, and still be a lady. Your level of grace and elegance involves a lot of factors besides wearing the "correct" notes. If you enjoy this, wear it discreetly and you don't have to worry. This is my ultimate fragrance, I always go back to it.
