Starts as a fresh garden red rose and quickly reveals the scent of potpourri in a summer room - dried woods and flowers with the faded rose buds hanging on to their scent. Elegant in an understated way, but in doing this so well, easy to overlook.
I had been wanting to try Poussiere de Rose for a long time. I managed to do a quick sampling of many Rosines at a store recently and Poussiere was the one who got me enamoured.
It is warm and masterfully blended and the quality of the ingredients can be immediately perceived. Comforting and feminine, classical but not all fashioned.
At times the cedarwood emerges, at other times the cinnamon does, all while the rose keeps being present although in a subdued, discreet way and rendered more creamy thanks to apricot and ylang-ylang.
I find it very easy to wear and definitely more suited for cold/cool weather

Beautiful! It's luscious, soft red, warm, rich & cozy. The apricot smells peachy to me & goes great w/rose. I love the balance this has between light/happy & dark/sultry. Very womanly. I'd feel fine wearing this any season.
Poussière de Rose was the first Rosine I fell for and also the one I got first. Sometimes I almost feel as if it had been created for me: it feels so much like home wearing it! It's soft, spicy and sophisticated, with mellow wood & fruit and slightly smoky tea & incense notes and a gentle, comfy drydown. A scent that rather whispers than talks loud, and my favourite Rosine scent for women.
This is a rose perfume which has a fascinating dried fruit scent similar to that of Rochas Femme. The apricot-prune-cinnamon combination blends perfectly with the rose and lasts a long time on the skin. It may take on a wine-like scent when the skin warms up.
