We want to be old when younger
Had this scent now almost 20 years ago. It still seems like just yesterday. Funny how anyone who is younger wants to act more mature, and now that I am older I am asking myself, What was my rush? Why did I act so offended at the perfume that my husband suggested back then? He actually liked Candies, and honestly, that would have just fitted me perfectly at the time. I was in my early 20s. But, no that 20 year old had expensive French perfume tastes, let me tell you!!! So of course, after trying many different ones at the posh department store, I chose Amarige D’Amore. I guess it was befitting and I recall the scent being very beautiful but also it can be easily worn today. Not vintage in feeling at all. Compared to the original Amarige, it had very little similarity. It is a bright sparkling white floral. Very pretty, light and romantic. I don’t have it anymore but I still recall it. Definitely behind the times in terms of the name and the message. Makes me feel melancholy at the passage of time.
