Reviews of Amyris Femme

Pale citrus with leafy-green tendencies that are bright, bordering on sheer. It begins to turn bitter. Elemi is herbal-like and it is also woody. AF moves into an old-style, men's cologne accord... This observation changes within fifteen minutes. I get a creamed, fruit vibe in the background. A mild, starchy, iris-root like note moves into focus. AF falls away from being masculine to moving towards feminine. Vetiver blends in to the iris creating an outdoorsy smell.

The vetiver-iris thing increases its pleasure factor. A little addition of woody oud adds extra zing.

An interesting composition overall... Turns a tad more green later.

There is either too much fruit or too much powder. I don't know, but something is not working there. It's itchy to the nose, it's cloying. Longevity and sillage are good.

Amyris is an extremely appealing fragrance, it's beautiful and masterfully blended - the quality of both ingredients and composition is evident. It's smooth with a well-constructed development and decent longevity of around 8 hours.
It opens with fresh oranges and lemons, softened by a haze of floral iris and underpinned with woods. The iris heart is pretty - more of a powder-puff than a frosty snow queen - with a warm glow of citrus in the background. The oud-vetiver base gives great endurance and adds an androgynous twist - this could very easily be a shared springtime scent.
Clean, fresh, crisp, classic, easy, happy, bright and extremely versatile. I'm falling for MFK in a big way...

The opening has a discretely fresh undertone - courtesy of some hints of citrusy vibes and a light and non-earthy vetiver - but it is mainly a floral note that is centred around a nice iris note. Whilst rich, it is an elegant iris, with a green undertone and not too sweet at all. An unashamedly floral affair.

The drydown brings in an incense that, again, combines richness with elegance. It is a light and ethereal balsamic tone; a far cry from the heavy solemn and ceremonial frankincense others have used and use. This is the incense antithesis to Amouage's splendid Interlude.

Yes, there is some oud in the base, but very discretely incorporated into the whole mix; think of the oud in Royal Oud - that's how discreet it is on my skin, just a touch more synthetic.

Towards the end the incense and the green and balsamic characteristics were off and what remains is the iris that, gently, fades into the night.

The sillage is moderate, the projection excellent, and the longevity an amazing fourteen hours on my skin.

A scent for spring evenings, well-blended, not without an original and never too cloying or annoyingly synthetic. 3.25/5.

Genre: Woods

Green citrus top notes establish a brisk, refreshing olfactory presence as they usher in a central movement of elemi, polite oudh, amber, and iris. The composition smells a good deal less syrupy and opaque than its masculine counterpart, its iris less powdery and dense. Indeed, with its crisp vetiver foundation, Amyris Femme is a much more “rugged” fragrance than Amyris Homme, which features borderline cloying gourmand cocoa and coffee notes. Go figure!

Whereas I found the oudh elusive in Amyris Homme, its presence here is obvious, if far from overwhelming, and it offers an effective counterbalance to the sweet, balsamic aspects of the composition. Frankly, I find the greener, woodier Amyris Femme much easier to wear as a man than Amyris Homme. I wondered briefly whether my samples were mislabeled, but checking the published pyramids for both scents confirms that Amyris Femme has the vetiver and Amyris Homme is the gourmand. So much for gender stereotypes! This is the Amyris I’m more likely to wear.

Amyris enters in a billowy, white muslin dress. Light, clean, an elegant marriage of decent quality (ie without the usual chemical screech) citrus and soft florals, it evokes a fantasy summer regardless of when one might use it. There’s a transparency and radiance to it that make it so easy to slip into; it maintains its presence without intruding. Something this subtle was never going to knock my socks off but its gentle mood music is uplifting nonetheless.
However it loses me at the three or four hour mark where a sweet citrus more suited to detergents is the predominant impression.
