Extravagance d'Amarige Givenchy for women Pictures

Extravagance d'Amarige with its floral composition has been on the market since 1998. It was launched 7 years after the first Amarige fragrance, as a sequel of a love story dedicated to an eccentric, provocative and mysterious young woman. The designer behind this perfume is Michel Girard. It opens with the notes of mandarin blossom, violet petals and pink pepper, goes through the heart of Wisteria flower, jasmine, neroli and wild strawberry. The bottom notes introduce warm sandalwood to the composition, as well as cedar and black iris. Serge Mansau made the bottle to be elegant, resembling of its precursor Amerige. It is available as 30, 50 and 100 ml EDT.

Oh my God!!! I have been looking for this fragrance for ages! And now I have it. The most exiting, erotic but also calm smell I have ever tried. Inordinate mixture from heaven :)

Very classy, original and somehow respectful - it must be the herbs!
B.T.W. I don't think it's 100% discontinued - I see it every now & then at Superpharm:)

This perfume was my first 'blind buy' and when I received the bottle I was for one moment afraid that it might not be what i expected. However, after using it, I can not stop smelling! I cannot place the perfume yet: it is fresh, light, flowery, but it also has something in it which doesnt make it too flowery, fresh or overwhelming (maybe that is herbal). I think it is a really pleasant perfume, which people would not recommend immediately as perfume. WIll definitley use it a lot!!!

It is my favorite EVER!
How can I do to make Givenchy to produce it again???
I keep a sample safe and I smell it when I want to lift my spirits.
Does somebody have Les Parfums Mythiques - Extravagance d´Amarige and Extravagance d´Amarige both? Can you describe if they are similar? And what is different?
Thanks

Herbal, grassy, green, bright, sunny, refreshing - a truly uplifting gem of a perfume. I like the citrus in this - it's light and tangy and more sour than sweet. The florals are sunny and dry, like a bouquet of wildflowers picked on a hot day.

I find this to be a wonderfully carefree, yet still classy fragrance. It has a bright, happy aura and is wearable in most situations. Quickly becoming one of the favourites in my collection.

Love..love...love it and YES this perfume is for the grown up girlie girl in all of us.For some reason this perfume reminds me of wintertime, spice and charm all day into nightime. Be very prepared to pass the name along. A soft woodsy undertone that lingers on, coupled with sneaky vanilla drifts. This perfume is so flavorful you always come back for more!

I just love this discontinued perfume, it always makes me feel good when i wear it. It's not cloying or overpowering, it's got a lovely jasmine undercurrent but in a nice clean, natural garden way that lingers on and on. Slightly woody undercurrents but the soft florals are the focus here all the way through.

I don't have many perfumes that last well on my skin, but this stays close all day. To the point i find myself sniffing my wrist at work and smiling that it still has a nice drydown.

In my opinion, much nicer than the original Amarige and less spicy and more mainstream than Mariage which is a sillage, amber monster all of it's own.

I don't feel this beauty extravagant at all, in agree with Boruvka44 (if it's not an extravagant thing that someone doesn't want to use only sugar-sirupy perfumes;-)). It's very close to nature, that's what I love in it. A fresh, bittersweet harmony of marigold, nettle, pink pepper and wild strawberry (you can catch all of them here) on a lovely woody base. It's like lying in your garden on a sunny, lazy afternoon. Oddly the notes together give me another scent that I love, too: the scent of lovage (it's one of my favourite herbs) and gives me a very familiar feeling. Sillage is medium on my skin and unfortunately lasting power is not as good as others mentioned (only 4-5 hours), but on my hair and clothes it lingers much longer. The bottle is beautiful, too. It's a shame, that it's discontinued.

Nice. A lot better then the original. Fresh, crisp, green and clean. Not loud but there all around me. Perfect for spring/summertime.

Trevlig. Klart bättre än originalet. Fräsch, krispigt grön och "ren". Inte högljudd men här runt mig. Perfekt för våren/sommaren.

Deja vu, my childhood at our cottage, summer garden with tagetes, marigold, wild strawberries (lots of, from the side of a forest road) and even the nettle!
Where is the extravagance tho??

EXTRAVAGANCE! Just like its name says this parfume is extravagante (in a good way!), it's really different from others. Fresh, bold, and so heavenly goooood.
Acctually, the first time I was introduced to this fragrance I hated it, really. It was a signature fragrance of a friend of mine, and after I saw her spraying this parfum all over her from head to toes (I don't remember exactlly, but I think she was putting 8 or 10 heavy sprays), I understood why it was making me sick. So I dicided to give it a try because the smell in the bottle was nice. Since then I'm in love with this fragrance. 2 sprays are just enought to smell good all night long.

P.S. After it was discontinued few years ago I had a hard time to find [my second bottle] but I did - in a parfum store, not online. I didn't wear it very often since then so the bottle is still half full, but after I saw it at a great price online I had to order it. And I just receaved it this morning! I'm so happy!!! :)))

I was ordering this from fragrancex.com but got the Les Mythiques -extravagance version. I was huge surprised and thinking now where I can get this original one.. Mythiques serie Extravagance was quite similar, but it lacks kicks compared to original one

I will preface my review by stating that floral-greens are not usually my thing. Extravagance d'Amarige was unfortunately no different. Although it felt light and fresh, I wasn't able to pick out any specific notes, because I quickly found it headache-inducing and had to wash it off. :(

I think this would be a great scent for someone who loves fresh, clean florals, though!

I am overwhelmed to be reading how Extravaganza is a special perfume for many here. Here is my story.
I had bought it for present for my partner who passed away several years ago. This was her favorite scent and so it was for me on her. Needless to say how emotionally connecting this perfume is to me.
Vertigo has given an exact description of the target audience just several comments below. This is an exquisite scent for a mature woman, 35/40--55. There is some quite unique combination of boldness and subtlety to it.
I would dare to say that Extravaganza was like no other women's perfume in the market at the time (early 2000's). Honestly, it stands out even today, after over a decade. It is regretful that it has been discontinued. One can still find it in some online stores though. A very unusual and special fragrance, indeed.

Extravagance has really surprised me....in a good way.
On first applying I was almost overpowered by the pepper, I waited, and I was rewarded with a fabulous scent. Fresh but strong florals, particularly the marigolds, and who would have thought that nettles would be so appealing in a perfume??
I'm not sure if Extravagant is the correct description...I'd go for elegant, beautiful, luxurious and classy.

At first I thought I smelled linden trees and blossoms. Very shortly it became unbearable strong smell I couldn't escape. I wanted to throw my shirt out. I ended up giving it to my mom and she loved it, since it is a stronger type of perfume.

I like this fragrance. It is very different than any of my other perfumes and also any other Givenchy frags.
It is bold, bright, and indeed extravagant. I normally am attracted to darker, sexier scents, but the freshness and extroverted qualities of Extravagance D'Amarige have won me over. It settles beautifully on the skin, is sweet but not saccharine, and frequently catches the attention of others. The pink pepper and green mandarin are immediately noticeable to me -- quite strongly -- but it balances pretty quickly. It also has good staying power.
I love to wear this when more dressed up and feeling outgoing. Even when I'm not feeling extroverted, just wearing this one can help bring me out of my shell. If fits my look for the day whether it's more avant garde or minimalistic.
Wear this one if you want something to help bring out the boldness of your personality! Good to wear to a party or out grocery shopping. I'm glad I bought it, it fits an interesting niche in my collection. I would give it about a 7.5-8/10.

My Mother is beautiful, and still looks so young and beautiful, even tho she's climbing up there in age. I Love this because my mother used to wear this and this smell makes me think of her,the smell went along so well with her,, the smell is very distinct,fresh,pleasant like a burst of delight without being to overwhealming, this scent reminds me of my beautiful mother, but she doesn't wear this anymore, im going to have to buy her a new bottle!

This seems to have nothing to do with the original Amarige or Amarige mariage. It does have a few things in common with the lovely Amarige d'Amour-a light, fresh, clear floral composition with good longevity. While Extravagance lasts only 3 hours or so, it has the distinction of bein =g the only scent I have ever tried that pivots around a central Wisteria note. Wisteria has a light, green, grapey smell when in bloom that is intoxicating. The Pink Pepper and citrus are barely discernable, but instead add some lift and zest to the polite florals. the Woody base with Amber is so faint that one hardly notices it-this perfume is so light that it is nearly gone befor the base has time to settle in! Nonetheless, I am enchanted by the floral composition and will continue to wear this throughout the spring.

This brings back wonderful memories for me! The first time I purchased was 11 years ago in duty free at the airport in Zimbabwe. We were returning from an amazing honeymoon visiting Victoria Falls on the Zambezi River and we both fell in love with this spicy, sophisticated floral. Loved the pink pepper! Wore like a dream in our tropical climate back home and I remember people often stopped me to compliment me. An exceptional fragrance with a hip, edgy elegance to it. Staying power on me was okay, but still definitely a keeper in my book. For years I couldn’t find it anywhere, but now I will most certainly be repurchasing.

Floral-woody.

More modern version of Amarige from 1991.
It's name is a tribute to Alexander McQueen, who was connected with Givenchy couture house and whose works are described as bold, provocative and extravagant.

A perfume made for unpredictable women: silent on midday, on fire at midnight, ideal wifes and excellent lovers.

The streamlined shape of the bottle brings to mind a silhouette of unusually shapely woman. The plug reminds a flame and references to McQueen's shows - full of fire.

Probably the fave among the Amarige family.It has an aura of freedom about it, the openness of mind, the bravery of heart.It`s probably my favorite marigolds that are creating this magic!When I smell it, I have a feeling I am freely running through the fields under the hot sun, not worrying about a thing.Strange how some scents can create a world inside of them.

Very fresh, very green and very clean. I so love the nettle in the topnote, it smell a bit unusual. This is a not a mainstreamfragrance, it´s not for everyone. The wild strawberrys are quite shy, but (the only thing)longlasting and the flowers blend together without one of them being dominant. Unfortunatly this is a discrete almost weak fragrance on me, I can´t hardly notice it after about one hour... the only thing that remains is a wiff of clean and fresh soapyness, nice but not at all enough to make me love this perfume. I think it´s more suitable for the hot summer... My husband likes it.
