What is Amarige?

Amarige is a French perfume first developed by Dominique Ropion of Roure in 1991. It is distributed by Parfums Givenchy in France.


The initial perfume contained as many as ten fragrances, including tangerine, gardenia, ylang-ylang, ambergis, musk and vanilla.

Amarige d’Amour

The 2003 release of this line, which was the next installment after 1991, cut down on the number of fragrances, but maintained the tangerine and amber. It also featured black currant and sweet pea.

Later editions of the perfume included wild mimosa that grows near Grasse, France. A 2005 Prestige edition was released, and the 2006 edition consisted of only 80,000 produced bottles.
