First great love
As mentioned in the statement, this was my first "real" (expensive) fragrance after NoNames and Puma as a teenager. 2009, I was 16 and had a sample of this fragrance in my advent calendar. Wow, it was love at first smell. Rice steam, cherry blossom, frangipani enveloped me along with the most beautiful cozy vanilla. (At the time, I guess it was just wow - no idea what for, but it just smells insane).
Turns out my best friend wore that scent too, never occurred to me to ask her about her perfume though.
My precious sample was squeezed to the last drop.
At that time for me sinfully expensive I wanted him for Christmas, got him after some detours also (that would be too far out) and was for the 1st time in the 7th fragrance heaven. I wore it every day, well dosed, summer and winter. Although it's probably more of a fall/winter scent. But it was simply my signature scent.
For many years this beautiful fragrance was my daily companion and even a 100ml bottle was emptied next to the 30ml bottle, which has not happened with any fragrance since.
I can still remember back then we used to go to the perfume shops to mist ourselves with our Kenzo Amour to save up our sacred supplies at home. Back then it was on the shelf at eye level for everyone to see, advertised big and all its flankers (what a regret I have never picked one of these up, now they are all discontinued. If only they hadn't been so unattainably expensive)

Today it now sits on the bottom shelf in the perfumery, in the far corner, no longer being noticed. He seems to have somehow become old, as I also already sometimes feel. Yet he is in no way outdated or old. It is a warm, cozy, beautiful fragrance that seems to have been sadly forgotten. You don't smell it on every corner, so that might be the upside to it.
So I want to advise you, besides all the "hip" la vie est belle etc, if you don't know this one yet, give it a chance and take a sniff.
He impresses in my opinion also with an almost endless durability, especially on the clothes on which he is still noticeable even after washing. Also, he has no great scent progression, it always remains the same beautiful.

For me, he will always remain what special, even if I wear him no longer so often because the selection has simply become larger. He is for me simply one of the most beautiful, cuddly fragrances and as long as there is him I will always have a bottle here.

Isle of the Gods
I associate the word "Amour" with France, with Paris, the city of love. Many fragrances embody this city. Be it through their extravagance or their "coup de foudre", which they trigger through their olfactory charms. But this fragrance says something different to me. Pas Paris, pas France, pas de l'amour.

This fragrance takes me to a distant island that I have only visited in pictures, but desperately want to see one day. It is green there and exudes a mystical magic. It's a world of gods, Hinduism, offerings, flowers and beautiful beaches. Bali. I imagine myself on a hill in the outback marveling at the otherworldly rice terraces. The magical sight of them gives me pause. The fragrance AMOUR is so Bali in a way that no other fragrance can ever be. It's powdery with its rice steam and tea aromas, mystical with incense and earthy woods. Perfect frangipangi smile gently at me and are kissed by an all embellishing vanilla. It makes me feel good. It is a pure fragrance that promises something big. A scent that is never too much, never too showy. And yet so striking that you sit up and take notice, wrinkle your nose, and wonder what smells so good. An otherworldly treasure that I never want to give away. A fragrance that allows one to find peace in the world of these all-consuming and intrusive scents. To one's faith, to one's inner strength, to oneself.

Winter magic...
... i think of a deep snowy landscape, bitter cold, ice wind and slippery roads, I think of Amour. Whose sweetness and vanilla hints warm my cold limbs, warm the cold air and I myself can warm me in the fragrance better than hot tea .

In the summer I would not want to wear it, me the sweetness would be too much.

It's a great perfume, worn discreetly. This year he was tested between all the lock-downs and closures by me, and I also like it. Remains to hope that we will once again experience a winter with lots of snow !

Tantalizing, gripping, fatal – highly addictive
It is my signature perfume, so what more to say than that I love it. The alcoholic opening quickly dissolves with skin contact, the heavy, alluring and enticing notes of vanilla and maybe a hunch of wood creating a startling, highly addictive sensual waft.

I was asked a lot what perfume I use. II received a lot of compliments for this one. It is highly unusual on my skin, which is the blond, brown-eyed and whitish type, my skin and sweat turning the sweetness into something deeper, fuller, fusing every single note to a composition of perfection. Alluring. Enticing. Thought provoking.

That said, I often smelled it on others and it never developed the same. I think it really depends on your skin whether the floral, almost greenish notes come out, or the sweet, heavy flavors of frangipani and musk melt together on your skin, merging with your own body scent. So try it out – with this one it really depends. But if its right for you, you will know.

Classic!
Yesterday I came back from vacation and wore almost exclusively Kenzo Amour. I had bought this in May also on holiday. That's probably why I took him back with me. Definitely no mistake. I already liked Kenzo Amour when he came out. I would have liked to have had it, but it was incredibly popular at the time of its launch, so I could literally smell it at every corner. Since individuality was always important to me, I renounced this fragrance and some time later came across Confetto by Profumum, which I then acquired instead. Today I have both and must state that they have actually not at all much in common, except perhaps the almond rice note. Confetto is a Wummser par excellence, Amour is a flatterer, tender and soft and never too much. You can compare them, but those who like one do not automatically like the other.

So when I was strolling through the perfumeries on holiday in May, I discovered Kenzo Amour and spontaneously bought a 30ml bottle. My husband was also very impressed by this fine, uncomplicated and yet present fragrance. Apart from a very dear friend, I don't know anyone in my circle of acquaintances who still wears this fragrance today. There is no doubt that Kenzo Amour is one of the classics for me, because how many fragrances still manage to hold their own in the market for so long today? Most mainstreamers disappear again after a few years, unfortunately also the really good ones. This one has stayed and even after 13 years still manages to give me a fragrant pleasure

Kenzo Amour
This fragrance smells warm, harmonious, round and balanced. Except for vanilla, I can't make out a single note. It reminds very minimal of Dior Addict, but is much less sweet. It is certainly beautiful for autumn and winter and for evenings. However, I am missing a little something special here. I like Addict better!

Peaceful love
Love knows many faces, has many manifestations and although it is a universal feeling to which all of us - blissfully or suffering - are and will be exposed more often than once in our lives, no love is comparable to the next. We always perceive them as absolute and unique, the moment we feel them. And it can take on very different forms, at the same time revealing the most beautiful and darkest of our selves. From mother's love to jealousy. From the deep alliance - "we two against the rest of the world" - to (su)murder fantasies, the other should break this alliance... The drama of antiquity and its emerging dilemma between polis and love. Hyakinthos (my favourite myth, which gives the beautiful flower its name and in its suffering truthfulness makes the rose I just bought pale with envy on Valentine's Day). Goethe's Werther. Anna Karenina. Chet Baker. Rammstein.

Defying all this drama and hysteria that love doesn't even seldom accept, Kenzo's olfactory interpretation is about the most peaceful form. His sweet powderiness is there from the beginning, but never stabbing, never overstraining, never captivating, never vain or loud. The Sillage is present, but always pleasant. The playful cherry blossom and the light almond aroma of the heliotrope provide the necessary flattering reconciliation that should follow the smashing of plates in the matrimonial dispute (to stick to the theme). Kenzo Amour is the most balanced partner you can imagine - and also smells of self-love. I feel an - only very slight - emotional resemblance to Lalique's "Satine", whereby the latter lacks any fruitiness, which makes him appear somewhat duller and possibly also more one-dimensional. However, unlike the "perfect" partner, Amour is never boring, only self-sufficient. A designer fragrance that rightly enjoys such a high rating here at Parfumo and has been around for a long time. Personally, I am always looking for fragrances that belong in the category: sweet, feminine, sweet, powdery etc.. Test it. And something never quite goes right and I turn away unsatisfied. Anyone who's okay should try Amour. Sometimes less is just more, and lasting peace is more valuable than entertaining satisfaction.

The initial enthusiasm turned into aversion
Yesterday I tested two fragrances, one AmorAmor on the left wrist, then Kenzo Amour directly on the neck. Floating on clouds and in the scented sky I left the perfumery branch. What a hefty scent that is, this Kenzo Amour, that you're only testing it now, drove it through my head, at the same time I sniffed similarities (the flattering vanilla note) to Hypnotic Poison.
I was pleased to note the very good durability. Again and again the warm, creamy vanilla scent rose into my nose.
In the course of the evening, however, unfortunately, slight nausea began to appear. So much so I had to scrub it off his neck with a lot of soap. It's not gonna work out between you and me.

Actual love
Most probably this beautiful fragrance would have gone through my rags if it hadn't been for Schoork's wonderful commentary. I simply had to test Amour and finally buy it - I had no other choice.

The fragrance intro is very bright and friendly. According to the pyramid, rice steam and white tea are responsible for this. I smell steaming rice differently, which could be due to the fact that I use a different type of rice. With the white tea I have to pass as an old coffee aunt as well, because I haven't smelled or drunk any white tea yet. The tea lovers among you may forgive me.

I notice the heliotrope very clearly and it smells just like the purple flowering plant that has delighted me all summer long in my balcony box. Although heliotrope is used in very, very many fragrances, I have never before been able to perceive it so authentically in any other fragrance. Frangipani and cherry blossom are flowery, with Asian decency and completely unobtrusive. Flowery, sweetish but never penetratingly sticky.

The vanilla, the wood and the white musk are tenderly wrapped in incense. This gives Amour an interesting component. One is surrounded by a light smokiness without gloom and darkness.

Amour accompanies me for about 8 to 10 hours and fades away with a wonderful golden vanilla that reminds me of delicious warm vanilla pudding from childhood.

Actually, I don't separate "male" or "female" fragrances, but with Amour I have to make an exception today, sorry guys, but this sweetheart is unfortunately only something for us girls. However, I don't only mean young girls, but ladies of all ages who love flowery/vanilla scents.

Tender Rice Pudding
The opening of Kenzo Amour is almost creamy vanilla and rice. Yes, like everyone's already pointed out, rice pudding! There is also a slight spiciness bringing an exotic vibe.

Amour evolves smoothly. The floral notes sneak out discretly and blend so well in the vanilla. Frangipani turns a little sour on me, which also happens with some other white flowers, and I'm ok with it. Heliotrope adds a powdery aspects to the fragrance and cherry blossom revives the smooth composition.

The flowers mellow after about 7 hours and it turns into a vanilla skin scent and lingers around for another 3 or 4 hours.

This is not the sparkling love at first sight, but a love that lasts for a lifetime, comforts and supports you, makes you feel home. And the ad campaign illustrates it so well : comforting, but with an exotic vibe. The bottle is lovely. I adore the curved figure. However, once I removed the cap to spray, the elegant crane turns into a chubby hen. = =+ lol.

Though many describe it comforting and relatively safe, which I agree, it is indeed sweet. I like sweet vanilla, so it's not a problem. But I can imagine this might already be too sweet for some people. I suggest testing, especially if you usually don't have a sweet nose. Though the scent has a soft caracter, it is intense while remaining close to skin. You may not want to overapply.

Creamy tea-infused rice milk with delicate almond and florals over a lovely base of deep vanilla and woods. A comforting scent.
