Maybe I'm turning into a cynic as I get older but I feared this would be a bit Dolorosa. Not so! A va-va-voom white floral that is classy and well-rounded, I think Mastenbroek pulled something rather special out of the hat with this one well, for the first half at any rate.
Amorosa's core pairing to my nose is tiare and tuberose all the creamy, buttery, coconutty embellishments of those blooms are evident, but without overpowering. It's sensual, heavy-lidded, dozy in a come stroke me' way. Around it lurk a sprightly green-tinged jasmine and a refreshing hint of watermelon at the start of this latter I would have loved a bit more.
A rich floral it may be, but it has a soft and gracious step, and it throws open a window on a garden of heady blooms rather than locking you in a stuffy room with a huge bouquet (which tends to be the usual failing of white florals). Flattens out a bit in the second half, but just one spritz refreshes it again.
