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.
