Reviews of Romance

Romance was a fragrance that I looked forward to testing because I love Ralph Lauren Safari and had reasonably high expectations for Romance, but Romance is definitely not another Safari. Where to begin?

I really do not enjoy giving any fragrance a thumbs down, but Romance is a very synthetic mishmash of notes that smell more like a very inexpensive floral-type air freshener than anything else, and it gave me a bit of headache. I would not want to smell this even in a public convenience much less on myself or anyone else in the room with me. I am thoroughly disappointed as well as sad that the legendary Ralph Lauren's name is on this product. I am glad I did not purchase it blindly and only had a sample of it which I will promptly pass on. This is one of the very few fragrances that I would not wear even if it were gifted me.

Fragrance: 1/10

Projection: 5/10

Sillage: 5/10

Longevity: 5/10 (Thank goodness!)

A sweetish and fruity concoction, mainly lychee and a mild ginder accent, which in the drydown shifts to become mainly a floral composition.

The floral impressions in the heart notes are mainly freesia, lotus and violet, the latter being dominant on my skin and the most convincing detail in this mix

The base is a soft patchouli mixed with a woodsy undertone; all this is topped off by white musks. The middle phase and the base are very lackluster and thin on my skin.

I get moderate sillage, good projection and an excellent eight hours of longevity on my skin.

A spring scent that is very synthetic most if the time, and, apart form the violet contribution, overly generic. It performs quite well though, but overall is really not even mediocre. 1.75/5.

A highly generic, highly chemical, fruity floral that morphs into a typical oceanic nonentity.

Not awful, but so common as to have minus twelve creativity or ingenuity about it.

The sort of scent that tells me to avoid those who like it as having no taste in scent at all.

This is one of two perfumes I wear. Loving romance may come down to your body chemistry. It works for me, which is no small feat! (I even have to wear men's deodorant!)
The florals are intense at first, clean and soapy and fresh, but after the dry down the florals are quite nearly gone on me, and it's very warm and woodsy and... a little bit of a good leather smell? I wear it spring and summer, then switch for fall and winter. I'm always happy to pick it up again.

A nice, refreshing floral scent that doesn't smell too sweet or damp. Best for summers.

For a long time this was the signature scent of one of my girlfriends. I’d always loved how it smelled on her, but I never thought to buy it myself. But now this has been added to my stable, as my best mate gave me a bottle of this for my birthday recently ☺ Straight up, I get the lily, the ginger and the chamomile – an unusual combination, but rather nice. After an hour or so, I get the tiniest waft of violet with a hint of wood. This is mostly all flowers on me though, but not in a sickly way. It makes me think of a burying my nose in a big mixed bunch of flowers: the sweetness of the roses, the spicy-sweet carnations, the heady richness of the lilies, but with an underlying green note that cuts through the sweetness. This is such a fresh, clean, pretty fragrance. The weather is already warming up here, and I could see this working very well in summer, especially at the end of a long, hot day – you’d have a nice, cool shower, then spritz some of this on. I don’t know if it’s because it has been reformulated, or the way this reacted with her skin chemistry (or perhaps a bit of both) but I remember this being a bit more musky on my friend when she wore it. I think this would work well layered with something like Halloween Fever or BCBG Max Azria.
