    Red Roses Cologne is a Jo Malone's "integralist" (minimalistic) botanic take on the roses theme since the fragrance is a (somewhat fresh-green) twist on a really earthy-lymphatic-citric red roses aroma which appears by soon lemony, angular, green, rich (in a rosey way) and sparkling. Almost no sweetness around, just multifaceted roses water with all its green neutrality, its "angular-laundriness", the final sinister bath foam-like vaguely honeyed soapiness. The aroma is fresh, "soap and water", earthy for a while and vegetal in all senses. There is not almost evolution cause since the beginning the aroma is freshly-greenly rosey (despite it happens in an articulated way). Endly does this fragrance smell exactly like roses? I would better say it smells exactly like a good quality detergent-cleaning rose water. The lasting power is great.

    A rose is a rose is a rose! Pure, intensive rose, more on the richer and darker side with occasional whiffs of cut rose stems, orange, honey and floral notes, but mainly glorious rose. A bit linear overall, but convincing in it's pure intensity of rose. Like other Jo Malones it is good for layering, but it is a beautiful scent in its own rights. Good silage and projection, and a brilliant longevity of nearly eight hours on me. Well done, Estée Lauder!

    I love rose scents, and I've tried several rose soliflores-- some powdery, some sharp, some green. They seem an adequate enough approximation, but grow tiresome.

    This one smells like actual roses, an up-close sniff in a summer garden. It's absolutely lovely and putting it on transports me.

    Initially the sillage is somewhat strong but it calms down after half an hour or so. Nothing funky happens to it on my skin; it softens but its character doesn't change much. After a day of wear it's faded to only a close smell.

    Love this scent, alone or layered. It really smells like roses and it really lasts for me.
    After applying a small amount, I can still smell it the next day.

    Positively wonderful layered with Orange Blossom.
    To save $, I've purchased this and several others in bath oil form, which is generally $65 for 8.5oz instead of $55 for a single ounce of cologne.

    Still expensive if poured into a bath, but not so much if gently applied to damp skin after a shower or bath.

    Until a couple of years ago, I grew many old fashioned and antique roses. We've had all of them removed to make maintenance simpler, but I really miss that scent that used to fill the air around our home.
    Red Roses reminds me of that smell.

    Looking for new rose scents last year, I asked BN'ers for suggestions of rose perfumes with good longevity. Having happily sniffed my way through a zillion samples, this one comes out tops for true-to-life fresh rose - and yes, it does last several hours on me, which is a real achievement as I have the sort of dry skin that eats up scents. Red Roses reminds me of a rose garden at dawn, with dew on the petals, but the sun just beginning to warm them slightly. On me it's not entirely linear, as after about three hours I get the addition of a warm, honeyed note, probably the beeswax. Very pleasant in itself, this accent is not gourmand, but more the fragrance of a bowl of pot pourri with dried rose petals that have been freshly turned. This is a scent I like all year round, though in the depth of winter it needs something extra, perhaps a dash of jasmine or peach. Mostly, though, it's just perfect on its own. If you love roses, try this!

    Notes: "seven varieties of rose", lemon, honeycomb

    This is a very rosy scent. Rich, floral, quite natural -- like burying your face in a gorgeous bouquet of roses with a bit of greenery. It is more heady than sweet. Quite charming. The dry-down adds a lovely clover-honey note which is sweet and quite attractive. Good longevity. Rose lovers should check this out.
