I love this perfume been wearing since it first came out over 22 years just get so many compliments and they reconize me as that smell the smell is very sensual and l always loved gardenias , its why I first read about the perfume on a magazine I had to get it , and I did and been using it ever since!
P.S I dont see that on your label below as one of thenoteit carries . Dont have gardenia as one of the flowers Amarige has in it.
Amarige by Givenchy smells exactly like pikake flowers (related to jasmine) from Hawaii, to me. It also smells exactly like a French perfume my folks brought me from their trip to France, but was named something different. I wonder if it is, in fact, the same. This is just an intoxicatingly feminine scent. A mainstay in my collection. It is a warm floral. Not a flowery floral, but a single, amber-y note, not quite in the asian category, but I wanted to check BOTH floral and oriental.
I am really funny about what scents I wear, as some are so strong they are offensive. I just love this scent. It is not a strong scent, but lasts all day long. I spray it on at 8AM, and at 4PM people walk by my office and ask what smells so good. I tell them it is me! LOL.
