I would want to offer a pictorial tribute for the "40-years Anniversary" of this marvelous scent (1974-2014), remembering first its creator Maurice Maurin, who passed away just a few months ago. Here you can read the hommage dedicated to him.
He was creator of "Amazone" by Hermès, "Acteur" by Azzaro, and others; and author of renowned book "La Sagesse du Créateur de Parfum" ("The Wisdom of a Perfume creator")
|Maurice Maurin (1936-2013)|
If you want to read some "Amazone" reviews, others wrote excellent ones, for example on "Yesterday's Perfume", "The Non-Blonde", " 1000scents" and others. Simply go and Google it.
Since a few days ago I posted a gas-chromatography analysis about vintage Amazone EdT, describing how many precious ingredients it contains, this time I'll just show some pictures.
Here's to you, hence, my personal 100-pictures Tribute to a great perfume. A Tribute to "Amazone".
