Summary: Hmm I don't smell rice pudding at all. I don't smell rice. I smell a floral vanilla that's very sweet, linear and sort of boring. :S I was pretty sure I would love this but I would rather wear something more complex and unique.
Summary: @I_love_perfume I also wonder how anyone can compare this to Hypnotic Poison. HP is quite sickening to my nose, and the notes are nothing like Hypnotic Poison, except, of course, the vanilla and musk.
Summary: I really don't know how anyone can compare this to Hypnotic Poison which is my signature scent. This perfume is very sickening to my nose and the notes they use are nothing like Hypnotic Poison.
Summary: This is my second bottle of Kenzo Amour. I previously owned (and used all of) the 1.5 oz fuschia bottle. I was looking forward to more of this scent, and to a big orange bottle. I was so disappointed that this bottle was pink (my least favorite color) too! Nonetheless, the scent is amazing and lasts all day long. Perfect for a chilly fall day. I even wear it to sleep since it's so powdery and comforting.
Summary: While the impression of Amour is clearly vanilla, the nuances are much harder to describe. The vanilla and rice steam notes pair up to create a richly edible accord that contrasts with the indigestible floral notes of jasmine and other mysterious, unknown flowers that have a faintly astringent air in the manner of Chinese magnolia. The almondy heliotrope notes create a kind of bridge between the foody and floral and gives the perfume a touch of powder.
Summary: I don't have the best sense of smell, so I have a hard time describing what I can smell - thus, bear with me on this review. Kenzo Amour is not your typical perfume. It doesn't scream, but it will be noticed once others get close to you. It's not like the traditional white floral perfumes or the perfumes that are so popular with young women today that smell too sweet, like Pink Sugar or Viva La Juicy.
Summary: I absolutely LOVE this fragrance!! I can see what others mean about the "play-doh" smell, but I love it. Kenzo Amour has great longevity and sillage; on me. I love the spicy incense married with the sweet vanilla. This will be a repurchase when I am done. The top can be awkward to put on but think of the bottle as "art" and enjoy!
Summary: Mmm... This scent is so cozy and comforting. The type of scent you'd wear even if you were sick and curled up in bed in your PJs. It has a lovely vanilla-rice pudding aroma, a bit powdery and floral too. IMO it's quite different to HP, much softer and I definitely prefer this one.
