Amarige for women by Givenchy is one of the classics of the late 20th century. Released in 1986, This eau de parfum is a fruity floral that carries a darkness to it as well, which lends it a professionalism and classiness that is largely missing from new millennium perfumes. It's a broad mix, from peach, plum and violet top notes to mimosa, tuberose, gardenia, jasmine, cassia and rose heart notes. The base leaves more surprises, including tonka, sandalwood, vanilla, amber and musk, which renders the perfume a smooth, rich, fruity floral. One of the great achievements of Givenchy's perfume house, it's a staple in the adult woman's collection.
