As previously reported, Givenchy will launch Amarige Mariage later this year. Here is a more complete list of the notes:
Amarige Mariage — the latter name an anagram of Amarige — is a Chypre Oriental concocted by Symrise, said Linda Maiocco, vice president of marketing in the U.S. for Guerlain and Parfums Givenchy. Top notes are of Sicilian bitter orange and Calabrian bergamot; the heart is of magnolia and Egyptian jasmine, and the drydown is of patchouli, Siam benzoin and sandalwood.
Look for it in August. (via Women's Wear Daily) Update: According to Sephora, it also has cinnamon, and it is described as "sparkling, luminous and sensual". Givenchy Amarige Mariage is an Eau de Parfum and is available in 30, 50 and 100 ml and in matching body products.
Victoria's Own got ahold of a preview of it, and wrote a post about her impressions. It doesn't sound promising, sadly.
How many Amariges are they going to pump out before they get bored of it? Good lord. More sequels, sheesh.
LOL! I'm afraid in perfume as in movies, sequels are here to stay.
This perfume STINKS!!!!!
I have not had the chance to smell it yet, only the new Ange ou Demon.
Well, in spite of its name this has nothing to do with the original Amarige. I first tried it on a sample sent by Elle magazine. it was summer and awfully hot- 44 decgrees in Celsius… I thought it was horrible, plastic and rubber mixed with some barbershop smell. Then about a year later, I tried it a Sephora. it was still summer but i was in a muh cooler environment and suddenly the smell developed itself in a merveille of french , lady like sweet and woody amber. I bought a 100 ml bottle and started to wear it as an office fragrance. It goes well with black dresses, tailleurs and black hoisery. Once applied in the morning will still make its job 7 hours later. I wouldn’t call it the fragrance of my heart but it is wearable ( and so much better when it is called). still,it is not a winter fragrance since it has no warmth, but merely an ambery side that goes well with late autumn, yellow leaves and leather, jersey, trenchcoats and jackets. Definitely not suitable for a love affaire or a torrid encounter Good for tea scones in the afternoon, in a posh tea house wheer you meet an old friend, perfect for dinner with a long time sweetheart . In my oppinion they chose the wrong name for it- it has nothing in common with the original AMARIGE so, I suppose they did not want to invest in the marketing and tried to sell it to Amarige-once-lovers. Also,I cannot understand in ages with they marketed as a wedding fragrance with white lace painted on the box… Wedding it might be, but not as a bride but as a distant aunt that came from Europe to attend the ceremony :))
Thanks for the detailed review!
