Summary: A soft whisper of rose is listed on the packaging blurb but it's much more than that, this is a variation on Ce Soir Ou Jamais, a less jammy version. I own both. Quel Amour opens with a fizzy sherbet lolly, which I hate. At this point I may as well be wearing any generic fruity floral. Thank goodness that dissipates quite quickly and the lovely tendrils of scent linger on.
Summary: As I've read Quel Amour! is inspired by a love story: ''Created by Camille Goutal, this perfume is an emotional reminder of her fiancé's homecoming. Coming back from Australia, from the street up to her apartment, her entire universe was decorated with a carpet of peonies. The moment she saw him, she exclaimed: "Oh, Quel Amour!
Summary: The combination of rose, peony, & peach sounds really appealing. But I've tried two different carded samples of this, and all I get is medium-grade rose oil and not even a particularly long-lasting one.I know that there are many musks that someone people smell strongly and others can't detect, but have no idea how my nose is missing the peach and peony here.
Summary: I am a bit of a Goutal fan and haven't met a fragrance in the line that I really dislike. A few I wouldn't buy again, but nevertheless I've managed to finish the bottle. I didn't try this one for years because so much has been written about it being a 'fruity floral' (used disparagingly) and pink-smelling and young. Well, I'm glad I finally tried it, because I don't find it to be any of those things.
Summary: I bought Quel Amour! a couple of years ago which I wear when I go out or special occasions ..or when I'd like to feel more beautiful. It's like a red lipstick in a bottle. I feel like it's a balance of fruity and floral that's elegant and playful at the same time. It did remind me of my mum's dressing table where, as a kid, I often sneaked in when she's at work to try her lipsticks and blushes on.
Summary: The perfect combination of peach and powder with cherry and pomegrante thrown in. I generally don't care for fragrances with any powdery notes as they tend to smell a little 'old' for my age, but this one is done beautifully. I wore it to my sister's wedding and felt it was pefect for the occasion. Very warm and sensual, but as other reviewers have said, the lasting power is disappointing. N.B. This review is for the EDT.
Summary: i collect goutal fragrances and most of them have unique and strange scents that you grow to love.....with quel amour i didnt have to grow to love it...it is the fruity and sweet fragrance i have been looking for that isnt over the top 'i smell like fruit loops' scent. i like cacharel amor amor even, i think it is loud but fun..........this is a more mature and subtle fruity smell with the classic goutal powder scent behind the whole fragrance.
