Caron Aimez Moi was created by Dominique Ropion and launched in 1996, its inspiration was N'Aimez Que Moi, the Caron urn pure parfum which had been released in 1916 - World War I - for soldiers to give as a gift to the sweethearts they were leaving behind. Aimez Moi sings with violet, slightly spicy and smoky, without the traditional Caron base. This scent has great sillage that is not elevator-clearing and decent lasting time for most wearers. Aimez Moi means "love me" in French.
Caron Aimez Moi Reviews
From Now Smell This - "The top notes are spicy, with deep notes of violet and anise. The anise fades slightly as it dries down, while the violet intensifies and is joined by the other floral notes, although I find it hard to pick them out individually other than the faintest bit of magnolia. The dry down is spicy and vanillic, with light notes of amber and musk. The traditional dark Caron undercurrent, which always smells slightly musty to me, is present, but is not as overwhelming as it is in some of the other scents in the line."
From Perfume Smellin' Things - "Funny how, when we all of a sudden fall in love with something or someone, all that bothered us about them before becomes either a wonderfully attractive feature or a cute quirk. Thus the burnt aspect of Aimez Moi is what I now like about it the most: the heavy cream of honeyed violets, peach, helotrope and tonka beans is generously spiced by cardamom, cloves and anise, and the piquant mix lends the composition a sweetly-smoky quality. To balance the fire with ice and to, simultaneously, underscore the chilly side of anise and cardamom, there is mint. The effect is complex; the composition develops slowly, at a sensual, leisurely pace. Unlike before, I now see anise not as a second most prominent note after violets, but as a beautifully balanced part of a hot-cold spicy accord. It does not bother me in the least, in fact, anisophobic as I am, I find it utterly delectable in the candied pudding of Aimez Moi. I tried the Ropion's creation in eau de toilette and found it, as with most of his perfumes, to be very rich and long-lasting, with the kind of sillage that I adore: the one that envelopes the wearer in the most delicate of gauze and is always present although never overwhelming. Aimez Moi is floral, gourmand, fruity, oriental... it is a multi-faceted golden and purple gem of a scent. It longs to be loved, and it is impossible not to love it."
