Venus De L'Amour Fragrance Reviews

This was the first perfume I remember wearing when I was starting to take perfume "seriously", that is when I no longer saw perfume or "fragrance mists" as an accessory to my clothes or a part of an after shower ritual. This perfume is a lesson in how to make a great perfume. Each note goes well together and the result is intoxicating. Like the name suggests this is Venus the Goddess of Love, Aphrodite, and we offer her flowers, incense, honey, fruits and prayers to her. Usually you had to go to her when you wanted someone to fall in love with you. I wore this as a 17 year old girl in hopes to attract a guy I really liked. And it worked! Venus opens with a sweet fruit bowl of scents: mandarin orange, bergamot and peach. I would even include an orange blossom or neroli, but it could be mimosa which is actually listed here. There are aldehydes so the opening is a bit familiar if you like scents like Van Cleef & Arpels First. The heart is floral with violet, ylang, mimosa, jasmine, iris heliotrope and lily of the valley. The flowers are heady and fragrant like actually surrounding yourself with too many flowers. Because it is an Eau de Parfum the flowers are really standing out. At times it reminds mem of Quelques Fleurs so if you like super floral scents this is a treasure. It doesn't really get too strong if you know how to apply it and it's best to just spray it about twice in pulse points like the sides of my neck or on my collar bone. The aroma it releases is unmistakably feminine. It's spicy with cloves and patchouli leaves. There's also a warm incense note in the form of myrrh. It's smoky but not like Opium smoke. Just a warm myrrh. There is a rich benzoin and something which briefly appears that I felt reminded me of honey. It's Oriental in nature, flowery, balsamic, sweet and seductive. I still keep a bottle or two around. The price is cheap but the fragrance is not. Smells like one of the most beautiful perfumes they could ever make.

Beautiful floriental offering, sweet from peach, spiciness of cloves and nutmeg followed by iris and ylang, its very deep, unusual and tends more to the modern niche style, rather than vintagy vintage. Drydown is incense and vanilla with tonka - smoky sweet. Instantly likeable fragrance.

A stunning, beautiful floral marvel from the past. Very intoxicating, a little too heavy for me though. I have a bottle available for swap/sale if anyone is interested in this as it is hard to find and will just sit with my collection not being used, feel free to message me if interested.

I bought a mini to sample this lost wonder and am really surprised. It is a retro style floriental that reminds me of 1960 era florientals that I so love. Its clean and soapy, like Caleche. Its more mature with the soft aldehyde opening and various green notes in the heart. It lasts more than 6 hours and closes warmly. It is aptly named for the goddess of love.

The bottle is a work of art with its neoclassical frosted glass sculpture. I am really curious to discover the original Venus with her big rosey heart. This has no rose at all. It doesnt need it, really. I am impressed with Vicky Tiel fragrances on many levels. The price and quality are exceptional. I wonder why they were never promoted harder? As it stands, they are niche perfume.

Update 5/23/2012
After my journey into all of the Vicky Tiel offerings. I must say this one is nearly unisex compared to everything before. The florals are all muted and I have no problem wearing it in public after an hour or so.
