Excerpt: This fragrance is a beautiful fruity floral composition; lots of berries at the opening it then dries down floral with rose and ylang ylang. It's quite sweet & pepper from the drop of vanilla but never cloying.<br /> FragranceX's delivery & reasonable price was great, as always.
Excerpt: My husband's favorite; only perfume I wear. I get complimented all the time; "what is that you're wearing?", "You always smell good"(from my students). I've tried many brands, but this is it for me.
Pros: Draws Compliments, Great Smell, Great Value, Not Overpowering, Sensual

Summary: Before this came today, I thought I wasn't much of a fan of fruity florals. Amethyst made me do a 180 on first whiff! Talk about gorgeous! The non-syrupy-sweet top note smells so good I didn't think berries right away. I thought, wait, what's this flower I've never smelled? Of course when most of us think Lalique, we think crystal. They're the house that designed the bottle for L'Air du Temps, the one with two doves, and many others.
Summary: Just like the genuine, rough, amethysts given to an expert jeweler to cut and polish to perfection. And it comes out sparking with violet fires. From looking at the elements composing this perfume, a good number of them are dark purple, dark pink, dark red, and thus the Amethyste is deliciously dark, deep and beautiful.
