Kenzo Amour Le Parfum was launched in autumn, after the very successful original perfume Kenzo Amour from 2006 and its fresher, floral successor Kenzo Amour Indian Holi from 2008.

Golden Orient inspired creators of the new edition Kenzo Amour Le Parfum to enrich this fragrance with characteristic, accentuated aromas of patchouli, benzoin from Siam and woody accords rounded with amber and incense. The heart of this perfume still carries its recognizable aromas: frangipani flower, vanilla, rice... This version brings significantly more oriental scents than its antecedents. Perfumer of the new edition is Daphne Bugey of Firmenich.

The new perfume arrives in a characteristic bottle, but this time in matte gold nuances, in amount of 30 and 50 ml EDP.

Kenzo Amour Le Parfum Fragrance Reviews

I smell lots of caramel and honey in this rare gem,

on my skin it smells like a mixture between the smoky Gucci Gucci by Gucci, Hypnotic Poison and the original Kenzo Amour,

it smells like the leftover of cigarette smoke on my skin, mixed with vanilla sweetness and softness,

it's sooo good! a safe blind buy if you're into this kinda scents like I am,

it's quite light and airy, but the sillage and lasting power are both very strong,

If you subscribe to the belief that your body is a temple, put this on: you will quite literally smell like one. Incense, vanilla, tea, patchouli, and flowers... This is LOVE.

EDIT: I've worn Kenzo Amour Le Parfum a few times now, and every time I am amazed at its longevity. The juice is 8 years old and yet it projects for a full 20 hours with a single spray to the back of the neck. I put it on yesterday and am still getting whiffs of it today at 3 in the afternoon. Not only does this smell divine, it is practically a barnacle in terms of tenacity! I adore it.

I disagree that this one has nothing in common with the original Amour. The fragapini and rice are exactly the same in both, and I swear I can smell cherry blossom in Le Perfum version. I wanterd it soo much to be caramel with inscense, but instead I get I don't know exactly what but it's a scent from my childchood, really subtle but absolutely longlasting.

I get tons of heliotrope from this. With the incense twist it has a richer feel than the original amour. Beautiful scent and I like it both in the summer and in the winter!

I almost never write reviews. But i have a great love for this kenzo. It is my most treasured bottle. Incense and heavy thick black vanilla, not innocent like Amour. This is a grown up vanilla, like black lace, like black velvet. Not for the naive.
Is it loud? no, but it has a very good sillage and longevity (up to 8 hours or more) it's becoming more and more harder to get. Buy it if you see it, smells rich and expensive, incense caramel...how often do we find a perfume like this?

The exact smell of roasting rice milk marshmallows in a campfire made from smoked vanilla wood and incense. Perhaps nearby there's an amber sauce steeped with gentle spices for dipping.

Kenzo Amour Le Parfum is a gorgeous golden oriental that's the next best thing to a warm, intimate, cuddly hug on a cold day. The original Amour was a soft almond rice pudding, also rather edible and delicious but I infinitely prefer this version.

Kenzo Amour Le Parfum is a perfect oriental, it feels like classic Dior Addict with lots of incence and benzoin added. Kenzo Flower Le Parfum is back on shelves, I hope Amour Le Parfum comes back too...

Kenzo Amour Le Parfum is spectacular, and in my opinion, miles better in comparison to the original Kenzo Amour.

Kenzo Amour Le Parfum is indeed very dense, smoky and vanillary. As a result, this fragrance is quite mysterious and sensual. I feel a bit like an enchantress whenever I wear it.

The original was more fluffy, vanillary and sweet, whereas Kenzo Amour Le Parfum has a darker vibe, and is a bit more of an acquired taste. I must admit that the original didn't work with my chemistry, so I could be a little biased seeing that Kenzo Amour Le Parfum works better for me overall.

The rice and incense notes are easy to detect, and all in all I'm enjoying this flanker's lack of sweetness. It has a somewhat grown-up, elegant feel. I have a formal dinner coming up in a few weeks, so I wouldn't be surprised if Kenzo Amour Le Parfum is my choice on the night.

I am truly amazed to discover that Kenzo Amour Le Parfum is in fact an EDP. Its potency and excellent longevity had me fooled into thinking otherwise. But then again, perhaps Fragrantica has got it wrong. Nevertheless, I will definitely be buying a full bottle of this.

For me, the initial notes of Le Parfum smells like drydown of Lolita Lempicka's "L": incense + vanilla. It's hot. Burns the soul.

I purchased this unsniffed because I'm loving the LE flankers for the more popular original launches of K-Flower and K-Amour. Neither of which impressed me. If the original Amour was just "meh ok" for you or you're looking for its seductress alter ego, give this a try. This is definately a richer, warmer version of the original Amour. To my nose this closely resembles Kenzo Flower Oriental; both are warm, balmy, sensuous and intimate fragrances. BUT for me, there is "something" that keeps this from being in the "OOO I LUV" category alongside Oriental. Maybe because LeParfum is a bit spicier??? Or maybe it's just the the "k-Flower DNA" in Oriental that makes the difference for me. I'm not sure. But I do like it though very much. If you like Kenzo Oriental (which is now hard2find) I highly recommend this little golden jewel.

Absolutely adorable!! I also have the original version + indian holi, but this one is simply the best (even it has nothing in common with the other 2 versions, i think).

I tried it in a local mall in winter - then i went home. On my way home (just 5 minutes!) 2 women were asking me which scent i wear. And at home, my mother also told me that i smell sooo good!

The scent is expensive but - spraying once is absolutely enough. Once i sprayed 2 times - gave me a headache, that is just too much.

I love it! Unfortunately, my boyfriend hates it.

i adore this scent, even tho i have never wore it out. it is my "comfort scent" as i call it :) it smells just like sitting by a fireplace, a nice hot cup of tea, all snuggled up on the couch and a vanilla candle burning on the table.

I must stress that if you're interested in this as a more inense version of Amour, be advised that this is very different from the original. You need to try this one out before you buy because it is dominated by benzoin, which amps up the wood and resin spice here and turns it into something different from the vanilla rice pudding smell of the original.

There's still that lovely sweetness from the rice and vanilla, but it is very much in the background only. The incense here is wonderfuly done but I just find that the benzoin ruins it all for me. It drowns out most of the rice pudding goodness that I was hoping would be the dominating force. I blind bought this after trying out Amour Indian Holi, and though the two are nothing alike, even if I have my issues with this one I do have to say that this was an interesting one to smell.

I do agree with others who say that this is what I expected (based off of the name not the notes) Amour Indian Holi to smell like. For those wondering at the difference between the two, Amour Indian Holi is more of a fruity rice pudding scent, with something feminine and clean to it. Amour Le Parfum on the other hand has no fruit at all and is more of a woody rice pudding scent.

This perfume is easy to wear, since it's not overpowering. I like it, but I think it would smell better if the incense was less prominent. I like incense, but I would like to smell the other notes more. I prefer Kenzo Amour Indian Holi.

See, this is what I was expecting when I bought the original Amour and its flanker Indian Holi - spicy, warm rice pudding. Unfortunately, Indian Holi turned out to be a fruity floral over incense, and Amour was a bland but pretty, powdery vanilla rice pudding.

Amour Le Parfum, on the other hand, is the original Amour's rice pudding minus powder and amped up with amber, spices, incense, and even more sweetness. The initial opening has an odd sickly sweet note, but thankfully that fades away in literally less than a minute and leaves my skin scented with a gorgeous spicy version of Kenzo Amour. It reminds of visiting my aunts and going to a Hindu temple, what with the sweet incense and milky desserts of the temple melding with the flowery scent of my aunts' perfumes. This is undoubtedly a well executed scent, but it's just a bit too familiar to me that I don't think I'll feel comfortable wearing it.

when I first smelled it I knew that I wanted it. I´ve been craving for it since it was launched and I finally bought it some time ago as a birthday present for myself. It´s very spicy and warm and I can actually smell the rice:)It´s sooo delicious and I love the incense in it!For me, this is the perfect scent for autumn!

Amour smells like propolis (the resinous mixture made by honeybees with antibiotic properties) which gives the sticky sweet note and vanilla rice milk. A golden sweet gourmand scent, soft like a cashmere sweater. Perfect for cold weather.

I tried it once and, as much as I love Le Tigre, Elephant, Madagascar, Ca Sent Beau, Le Monde Est Beau, I couldn't truly like Amour Le Parfum.

There was too much incense and rice on me and the scent was tiring. But Amour Le Parfum did conjure a picture in my mind. I saw tops of oriental churches in my mind, painted in white and white oriental houses. It was an interesting trip :)

I think the fragrance has something in common with Flower by Kenzo le Parfum: the milky feeling.

Bottle is pretty and I remember lasting power was very good.

The original Amour was just a bit too milky for my liking, I'm not sure what it was, I loved it when I sprayed in the store, but now its just a bit..so-so on me.
I really like this version of Amour, I just have the 30ml size, not obsessed with the bottle, but its attractive in an unusual way. This is very spicy and a bit incense-y, but after a while it dries down to original Amour (milky rice pudding, musk, vanilla) but with a bit of a 'kick' to it, which I prefer. Do recommend it, but not as a must-have - in my opinion.
Sillage - definitely not that good for me anyway, longevity - 4 hours approx on my 'perfume eating' skin.

I didn't like it much. Also I thought that the Amour variations smell very much a like, just with tiny bits added. In the end it all came down to Amour again and the added notes faded.

ok..i used to own the original Amour. Loved it. Kinda started moving away from it due to the fact that it reminded me of an ex..needless to say. I'm over all that and have reconnected with this amazing perfume. I bought the LeParfum..no regrets. I am reminded of the original..only on a much more powerful and deeper level. Very rich, the woods, vanilla, and incense come through in such an exotic way. A little definitely goes a long way...perfect for rainy days. Super quality perfume..Kenzo makes wonderful, high-quality perfumes...love'em!!

I adore this perfume. It smells so good on my skin. My teenage daughter came home from school today and said that I smelled beautiful! WOW, that says alot because she's very picky about smells like her MOMMA. LOL
Anyway I love the vanilla, soft patchouli and incense, it shows up perfectly in the dry down. If you test Kenzo Amour please give it a chance to do its magic. Too many times I will reject a perfume too quickly. To me its a very romantic smell...I am in love....again. ;-)
*Update...Silage is wonderful and it lasts a very long time. This morning I woke up and could still smell this awesome fragrance on my skin!

Strong, spicy, syrupy-sweet. It comes closer to Amour Indian Holi than to the original Amour. Personally, I prefer the original Amour - it is much softer, more delicate and sensual. When I am in the mood for a more intense verssion of Kenzo Amour, I reach for Play for her Intense (Givenchy). But Kenzo Anour remains my all-time favourite.

I bought this blind based on my appreciation of Flower le Parfum over the original. I must admit this has come to disappoint me. It's a beautiful scent but not as beautiful as the rest in my collection. It does have a nice dash of spice, benzoin and amber to beef things up a bit and this works really well under the frangipani. You can still smell the rice aroma from the original but this version is much drier and very flat.

The bottle is stunning, it lasts forever and is a good choice for winter.

Not expected this at all! I was going to travel by airplane, and went into a shop to let myself smell like the nice creamy kenzo amour which would also not annoy others around me. I saw this edition, and though it would have better staying power or so, and I spritzed it.. one two three.. four times (maybe five). Ojojoj. I went out as a cream and spice BOMB. I almost choked myself, and I suppose I did a few others too. Happily my flight was delayed so the perfume had the time to fade away a little before gassing the whole airplane. Don't get me wrong, the perfume is delicious actually. It is kenzo amour with 'óumph'. An evening-dining-fancy-party-dark kenzo. With a big touch of oriental-spice-bazar added. Maybe how I supposed indian holi would be. Very nice, but please, learn from me and be careful. A little bit is enough of this peace of gold.

I love kenzo Amour for its softness and discrete sweetness , so of course i had to try Amour le parfum too!
yes its the same notes,you recognize the Amour ,but.. at first i thought Horray -amour upgraded all inclusive ,more of everything! More intense of the ingredients,more of sweetness,very very much more staying power - top grade!
But then i started feeling a bit put off by it,in a way that amour never made me feel , it just got too much ,too intense.
Yes i like it,but the Amour i love !

I think it is a real oriental. I cannot pull it off since it has very very strong incense notes, but overall I appreciate its quality. Incense is the most dominant note in this perfume, blended with vanilla, amber and patchouli. Very strong, stays on skin very long time.
EDIT: This scent is becoming a masterpiece in cooler weather, noticed that incense notes do not disturb me that much, as it quickly dries down to a wonderful ambery/vanillic base, a great great oriental...

First - I've been using other oriental scents for the past decades, mostly by Chopard: Casmir during winter, Mira-Bai during summer, and similar scents. Now that Mira-Bai isn't with us any longer (and what a sad good-bye it was), I searched for a new and striking fragrance. I found it in Kenzoamour, and fortunately I got the new parfum right away.

The saleswoman told me that it's much too rich for her, and that one dash is enough for a long day. Now, I know that a perfume smells different on different skins, but the difference here was striking. Where it might be too sweet for some, the rich, colourful bright oriental sweetness will be perfect for others - like me! It stays with me all day long, true, but never overwhelmingly, so that I can even dare a dash more, or a renewal 'for an evening.' It's love. I must admit that I can hardly go out without it.

Like a loving cocoon...

This is one of the best orientals i have smelled.Its sweet and spicy,makes you think about places like India or Egypt.Of all the amour frags this is the most special one,the other ones are just sweet nothing special.But this one gives more that special feeling and i love the bottle too.

I have to say NO to this version of Kenzo Amour. Myabe I need to re-test it but I tested it twice and couldn't stand it on my skin. It's very strong and very... ehm.. poo-fecal. This is an effect I usually get from strong artificial musky scents such as Kiehl's Musk (not with NR!). Too bad :-(
The bottle is stunning!

I loved it from the start, bought it. I admired incensy-resinous-spicy opulence of it. I mixed it with Samsara-worked really fine.
I don't know what happened but I just couldn't wear it for much longer, I don't feel incense anymore:( Only flowers 0_o
I'm thinking to hand it down to my sister in law:(((
Will give it a try for one more time, I hope it'll work.

If I love Kenzo Amour, my relation to Kenzo Amour Le Parfum is more like passionate. I´ve got it in a swap recently and oooooooh my god how marvellous it is!

This is Kenzo Amour stepping up to new heights, getting som edge even... If Kenzo Amour is like the ultimate comfort Kenzo Amour Le parfum is the ultimate sensual, sexy comfort... you know the feeling after... Well, no more said about that maybe.

Clean smokiness, resins, soft cherry notes, lingering whispers of vanilla, some caramellised topping on a delicious rice pudding and beautiful oriental flowers blossoming all the way to the end.

Longlasting, soft yet strong, gorgeus bottle, a true work of art.

A must, must, must try!

Im totally agree with BlackAmberMoon.

Also with my skin its a beautiful match :) and very long lasting ¡¡¡ Very captivating ... one of my next adds for sure.

For me, its a delicate and sensual combination of incense and frangipani, with a delicate touch of benzoin -not overpowering-
Make me fell into romantic and positive charm

Much richer and more voluptuous than the EDP version. The amber and incense make it more exotic than the EDP, but it doesn't venture into the "too sweet" category. Very soft and long-lasting. Definintely worth buying if you like the original but wish it had something more...

I LOVE it! It smells exactly like you can read in the description above, a very well done fragrance. It's an oriental version of Kenzo Amour, with nice warm amber notes. It's not as creamy and delicate as the original, but more mature, more sophisticated, I would say. The staying power is amazing, as well. In this case, the high price ist OK.
