    Default Amazone Light Eau de Fraicheur by Hermes

    I've been wearing Amazone Light non-stop for the past month; it's been nice to take a break from the sweet and fruity! My only issue is longevity - need to refresh about 4X/day.

    Does anyone know if the regular Amazone is the same scent, but more concentrated?

    Thanks in advance!

    On me, the regular Amazone (older formulation) does not last long either as it is also an eau de toilette. I usu. get about three hours worth of scent before it fades.

    I think the Eau Fraicheur is made of different "lighter" notes (perhaps more citrusy or floral) and not necessarily a "lighter" scent as such. I truly enjoy the original Amazone.

    I found this scent first through the eau fraiche and was hoping the original Amazone would be stronger and longer-lasting.

    I bought a vintage Amazone on ebay and it smells a little different, and is slightly stronger, but as Primrose noted, it doesn't last much longer. I love it and will use my bottle up, but don't think I'll reinvest since it is so fleeting.

    I have never detected any relation between these two, and I own them both. At least the vintage Eau Fraicheur.

    EF is a bitter, sweet quirky scent. And Amazone proper is a dry, almost masculine chypre. I like Amazone a lot, but I think Eau Fraicheur is a really hard scent to like, very unusual.
