The last perfume
I have fond and bad memories of this perfume...

This "clean" note fascinated me, almost smells like freshly washed laundry. (Which I love very much) I find the flowers somewhat discreet, but very well "placed" :D

It is a very pleasant fragrance that is very feminine. Fits best on dates, so for a special occasion. Generally on summer evenings, when you are walking through the city or near a shore, while you look into the eyes of the love of your life and plan the future with her...

This was the last perfume I gave my girlfriend before she left me for someone else a few days later.

I still have this perfume in my nose to this day and every time I smell it, I always think it was her who walked past.

Amarige, is that you?
I used to wear a lot of Prada, but in recent years I haven't worn anything apart from the Infusion range. So I was all the more excited about Paradoxe. There is also an Intense version. created in 2022 by Nadège Le Garlantezec, Antoine Maisondieu and Shyamala Maisondieu.
After the first spray, bam déjà vu. After a quick look at the notes, confirmation => very similar to Amarige by Givency. Same vibe and since Amarige was released in 1991, you don't have to think twice about who copied from whom. The retro vibe seems to be in demand at the moment, for nostalgic reasons I recently bought Amarige again after more than 20 years, I don't need two almost identical fragrances, especially as I find Amarige's bottle more beautiful. There is also a little Shalimar. Or Armani My Way. Or Born in Roma. You see, no groundbreaking innovation here.
Not a shy fragrance either, an intense, gourmand fall and winter fragrance for women over 30. An initially fruity, then beguiling, floral fragrance.
Gourmand in the drydown, but not too heavy or overwhelming.
Definitely a woman's fragrance. You have to like jasmine and vanilla. Juicy sweet fruits and flowers; a suitable companion for the romantic cuddle time, some festive decadence, cold and wet outside and warm punch and dimmed lights inside. Vanilla, ambergris and jasmine cannot be denied a certain commercial character. This fragrance is by no means an office or travel fragrance and can trigger migraines. The sillage is above average and so is the longevity.
Feminine, floral, powdery, sweet and intense.
For many, the fragrance will evoke "I've smelled it before", it is not unique or one-of-a-kind, which would have been the case if pear had been made more prominent. You have to be very careful and not overdose here. I would have liked to have smelled old Paradoxe from 1983 by Pierre Cardin, it is supposed to be chypre-like and floral with pepper and moss.
Paradoxe 2022 is by no means shy, discreet or suitable for the office. Mainstream going out fragrance.
If I hadn't bought Amarige, Paradoxe would be a candidate for purchase.

Summer wing
...carefree, sweet and free!
Like summer 99 - Paradoxe smells young and cheerful without being childish.
White creamy blossoms with a citrusy freshness are the prelude, one immediately thinks of a warm summer breeze full of spices. The air is hot and shimmering.
Orange blossom takes vanilla by the hand and makes a silk bed in the cornfield, feeling good without getting tired.
This fragrance puts you in a good mood, lasts like a bomb, has a delicate floral sillage and gives you that certain something, like a thin summer dress that caresses me in the August wind.

regress is progress
it's the same with prada paradoxe.

it has a similar dna as many many other perfumes, but honestly iss the hammer.
same and yet so wonderfully different.

if i'm honest, i love this perfume. it's the only sweet perfume that i'm allowed to wear without my mother beating me to the ground because of its obtrusiveness.
if i'm honest, i just can't understand the hate for this. it smells good and belongs to the mainstream, probably that's what bothers the fine baccarat rouge idolizing perfume critics nose of some users here probably.

it's inexplicable, but the scent just smells like sexiness to me. like emily strawberry when she's out of puberty lol. well, definitely fitting for this target group (to which i count myself as an almost twenty year old)

as a not-so-long former smoker, i must also admit that the perfume mixes well with cigarette scent. i can't explain it exactly, but it's just really really delicious.

what exactly is paradoxical about it? well, no idea, I'm still trying to figure out.
probably the fact that the scent is so incredibly horny and cheap at the same time.
and I do not mean cheap in the sense of money.

it is simply a perfume that balances on the thin line between sexiness and trashiness on high heels, but that's what makes it. on such I stand now times with perfumes, my friend thank god also.

in any case, the perfume is definitely a compliment catcher and perfect for going out.

Compliments magnet
I love this fragrance. He is simply successful.
He is not pieksüss but because of the neroli component also not too fresh. I find him feminine, floral, powdery, he smells Bright.
You can use it alone or as a layer of your choice.
A really really pleasant feminine fragrance with no component annoying or headache. I got some compliments for the fragrance, especially from men.

Super everyday and work suitable.

Very disappointed: it smells cheap and totally synthetic with a pungent artificial pear note.
This scent doesn't justify its high price.

For me the top and heart combo smell like Moschino Toy 2 Bubblegum, however Paradoxe lasts longer and dries down into a warm vanilla.

This is a sharp synthetic headache inducer for me. The opening is not that bad but I can't stand after a while.
