I sometimes feel like I can find out traces of rose in it but I won't call it a rosey scent by any means It lasts about 5,6 hours on me, you're gonna be noticed in first hours of application but after that it goes on rather soft.I agree that it has similarities with oriflame love potion but they're not potion is waaay spicier,more grown up and has some darker vibes thanks to it's coffee and cacao but they both have this creamy orangey-berry vanilla in commom I love amor amor bottles and that's why I've decided to collect all it's flankers.right now I have also amor amor in a flash which I like even more I won't repurchase but it's recommendable specially if you want one perfume for various occasions.something cool,warm and inviting,delightful and people are going to love it on you Love this !!! Juicy sweet perfume, black currant adds tartness and citruses balance the sweetness." I told him it was me and he said it smelled like rich chocolate. I could easily smell it from under my sweater and it seemed to last all night long. It is still good but when I want fruity floral I will go elsewhere.
I start to smell white florals, which to my nose are namely lily and a very fleshy but clean jasmine--no indoles here, so no baby/animal poopy butt.
Just plain good clean flowers, which gives it that hotel soap scent.
I never got the chance to try pre-reformulation version of amor is a new one and I like it.
A wise man advised me to buy this perfume long then I wasn't a perfume junkie.kenzo amour and Hugo boss deep red were my only perfume loves and I just knew that I adore vanilla in fragrances and that I'd like to own a perfume with a nice blend of it with fruits and light I didn't go for amor amor until recently and I believe that if I got to know it back then, I'd chose it as my signature for maybe years!
It also got high praises from Christopher Sheldrake, the nose for most Serge Lutens and a handful of Chanels, which is no small feat.
Amor Amor opens with a sparkling clean citrus accord, that is fizzy, effervescent, and very fresh.
Just the first minute or so trying to work through the bad breath smell is a turn off. On my skin average durability, and even a little weak, so not interested in the bottle. But it is so lush, I cannot help but love it, even though it's supposedly fitting for teenagers. I love to spray my frags on the underside of my hair on the back of my neck, because whenever my hair moves, it sends waves of the scents to my nose, and each time it does it, it feels like I experience the scent anew. A pretty safe gift for a young person, my nose detects blackcurrant candy with backing of a smooth and fluffy vanilla. Trippy but true: Prompted by Tsarina M's discovery that Paris Hilton's Passport Paris is an almost an exact dupe of the original Amor Amor formulation, I decided to find out for myself: Hold on to your pants, folks, it's all true: Paris Hilton's Passport Paris really is, eyes closed, very close to the original.
Lately I feel drawn to citrus frags more so than usually (even though I always love citrus frags), but this is for me stunningly lovely, and I strangely enjoy it way more now in the summertime than I did in the winter. When I get the Amor Amor whiff, I sigh with delight. I'd personally wear during the winter, as for me, it falls into my personal category of 'comfort and safe' perfumes. I said close, not exact: there's a bit of synthetic edge to Passport Paris that reminds me that that unique blend of citrus, rose, musk that was the original Amor Amor was, indeed, very unique.
Orange is most prominent first, but grapefruit becomes more prominent as the alcohol evaporates.
Admittedly the citruses in the top veers dangerously toward dishwashing liquid territory, but thankfully this dissipates.
To everyone devastated by the reformulation, I truly empathize! So sad when they kill off a good perfume yet use the same name for something completely different. Passport Paris is the answer, how silly that may sound. 2002 Dior Addict and the original Vanilla Oil from the Body Shop for example.
