Hermes launched Amazone fragrance back in 1974 (and re-launched it in 1989). The fragrance was of a free and modern femininity; made as an intense combination of green, floral and woody aromas. At the end of 2014, there comes a new, modern version of this legendary fragrance, named Rose Amazone, launched under the Collection Les Classiques.

„A new Amazone who is so much more contemporary, brave and powerful but also extremely feminine. Rose Amazone, a sparkling, tangy and tender perfume, brightened by citrus fruits, currants and raspberries. A perfume full of colours for cheerful fragrancing.“

The in-house perfumer Jean-Claude Ellena is credited for this remake. The main ingredients include citruses (bergamot, lemon, orange, mandarin and grapefruit), red currant, leaves and buds of black currant, raspberry and blackberry. There are also floral notes of rose, laid on a background of sweet amber, vanilla and woods.

Available as 100 ml Eau de Toilette.

Perfume rating: 3.61 out of 5 with 58 votes.

Rose Amazone Fragrance Reviews

Rose Amazone shows how well Jean-Claude Ellena’s trademarked transparency/minimalism fits into mainstream taste. Not a dig, just an observation. It makes sense, too. Many ongoing trends in perfumery stem his more mainstream perfumes: Bvlgari Eau Parfumée au Thé Vert, Cartier Déclaration, Hermès Terre d’Hermès and Kelly Calèche. He’s one of the most influential perfumers of his time

Ellena’s approach to flanking the original Amazone is to place it somewhere between his connoisseur-admired Hermessence line and his more mainstream work. Smart move. A flanker is first and foremost a sales tactic, and Hermès’ strategy is to revive a few classics by sprucing them up and borrowing on their name recognition (Vetiver Bel Ami, Geranium Equipage). Ellena must maintain the sanctity of Hermès taste while shooting for a big sell. It’s a balance he’s had to maintain in all the Hermès perfumes he’s composed and he’s proven how well he can do it.

Amazone was an early fruity-floral that matched a dowdy woody-floral with unsweetened fruit/berry note. It’s a cautious an inch away from “old-lady” perfume, not a fruity-floral slushie of the’90s-‘00s. It is a dry, woody, green perfume with a potent black-currant note that ties the flowers to the fruit, namely, raspberry.

Rose Amazone takes the tartness and the fruit up a notch with a sweet rose and a grapfruit twist. It’s a beautiful compositional effect. The sweetness is in the flower, not the fruit, and the perfume avoids any syrupy cocktail-y comparisons This is a fruity-floral for those who who managed to steer clear of the fruity-florals of the gourmand/dessert era. It’s also an alternative for those who liked tart-fruity chypres such as Cristalle, Diorlella and Y but are on the bemused side of the chypre-reformulation debate and want to steer clear of the whole mess of it.

Rose Amazone keeps a skosh of the original’s green-floral reediness and it matches the tartness of the grapefruit note beautifully. It doesn’t have any of the mossiness of Amazone’s drydown. In fact, the drydown has a sweet, lucid, nearly metallic muskiness that leaves the base the most contemporary part of the perfume. The opening of the perfume is tribute to the original, but over time, Rose Amazone walks further away from its predecessor. The drydown is deliberately the least distinctive part of the ride. It takes you further into the house of Hermès and closes the door behind you. It is a rosy-sweet, muskier version of the airy-woody drydown of the Hermessence line. It is balanced and straightforward, like the graceful entry that ends a complicated dive.

Opens up very fruity, right after that you will recognize the Amazone in it and then, roses and powder. Extremely soft and weak it does not stay with you longer than 2 hrs even if you have sprayed 10 times. Overall pleasant, summery fresh (for some moments wattery), feminine and sophisticated although I don't agree with the other reviews since I DO find it more old fashioned than a young fragrance. I love Amazone so much that I want to like it. ButI still feel that the best thing Hermes could do with this fragrance it bring it back with the old formulation and also re-launch Amazone Light. Some creations are better to stay
in their original form.

Compared to the more stern Amazone, Rose Amazone has been gifted a bright, joyful spirit which makes her companionship fully enjoyable. Whereas the grand classic Amazone is mossy, wild and dark green, Rose Amazone appears cheerful, bright and more feminine.

I'd say that Amazone and Rose Amazone are of the same age but from the different eras.

An effortlessly classy green- fruity perfume.

I tried Rose Amazone and it smelled nearly nothing like old Amazone and I'm talking about the vintage Amazone.
I expected a rose scent, but I found a geranium one.
At least, it smells like geranium to me, but it should be the effect of every berry thrown in it.
It's pleasant, bright and elegant in a modern way.
I quite like it.

I like this a lot, I used to wear Amazone a long time ago, it was a staple of my youth, it was vibrant, complex, adventurous and a bit androgynous.. Rose is also that, it starts off a bit sour with the cassis, then it evolves toward the raspberry, but it never looses its chypre character, Ellena managed to stay faithful to the original, while bringing a new dimension of modernity and mass attraction to the scent...in a way this is a cold scent, it isn't a warm fuzzy fruity creation..it is a statement of a great scent evolving in a new era..
It is feminine, more than the first one, less mossy of course, but still hard to pinpoint really..the drydown has the vibrant vibe of the original, more green and earthy..
Very interesting scent!! Happy to wear it.

I had smelled this on paper at an Hermes Boutique in Hong Kong back in early November but no one here seemed to know much about it then. To me, it smelled very different from the vintage and previous formulations of Amazone but like a sharp, tart and fruity Kelly Caleche with very prominent notes of Cassia and Black Current. It was a very beautiful scent but IMHO not as unisex as Kelly Caleche. I might need to try it on skin next time to see whether it will work on me.
