Reviews of Rose Muskissime

A delicate eau that pairs a watery rose with tangy blackcurrant, which then mellows to include other fruity notes, like mango. This is the way to do a fruity floral, I feel – with an air of innocence and some frivolity. There’s a juiciness about it which slowly evolves into the lightly powdered musky drydown.
There’s nothing about the ingredients that indicates they are in any way special, and perhaps its timid projection is due to this budget tendency. More sensitive noses may have greater pleasure from Rose Muskissime, but a perfume I have to strain to smell just doesn’t do it for me.

Genre: Floral

Sweet rose and a bright citrus commingle in an opening accord that’s refreshingly perky for a rose-dominated scent. The trick here is that the rose doesn’t in fact dominate. Instead it shares its living space with the crisp fruit and sweet musk to create a pleasant and well-integrated heart accord.

The drydown is soft musk with echoes of the fruit and rose floating in the background. Altogether very nice, but also unusually tame for this fragrance house, and hence a little bit disappointing in my view. Olivia Giacobetti's Drôle de Rose does much the same thing with more sparkle.

I agree with the great Foetidus, MPeG Rose Muskissime is a graceful and delicate take on rose, a multicolored, tropical, vibrant, airy and finally powdery/musky rose. Almost juicy but soft, windy and natural, with a well balanced artistic lightness. It is centered over a tropical-cocktail/ rose central (and unique) accord plus some minimal touch of salty air and aromatic notes. Sometimes I guess a touch of eliotrope is hidden somewhere in the heart or among the base notes. The smell is ethereal and subtle but durable and with a long projection. A romantic sunset on the caribbean shores comes to mind. A great fragrance.

I'm afraid it falls to me to be the thumbs-down meanie who dislikes Rose Muskissime.

It kicks off with an over-sweetened Strawaberry Fanta smell mixed with rose, with a strangely aquatic undertone thanks to a subtle green cucumber/aloe note. Given time, it ends up as a mix of fruit, especially that pineapple from Ananas Fizz and some fake peach, with lingering strawberry soda and rose and a pinch of white soap smell.

I appreciate that MPG invented this style of sweet candied fruity floral with this and other scents back in the 80's and it deserves some credit, but in all honesty, here in 2012, this smells like cheap shampoo or some crappy little doll perfume aimed at little girls. Sorry MPG, I still like you, it's just this one that I'm really not liking at all...

Charming and youthful rose scent, loaded with juicy exotic fruit notes, over a powdery musk base. A brilliant example of what a wise and thoughtful use of rose can add to a composition and how the clever addition of fruits can project the light side of the florals and bring an air of freshness. Daywear oriented, perfect for those days you just have to be optimistic. Go for it.

This fragrance projects love, warmth, and acepptance. Rose Muskissime opens with flowers, but, suttle flowers; mellows out to a powdery sensation. This fragrance is wonderful on my wife; it is very long lasting and not overbearing.
