    A sparkling rose wrapped in silk.

    This fragrance has a truly beautiful smell to it. I really love Rose in all forms and this one is just exquisite!

    Rose Ikebana is inspired by the texture of Silk, and the Japanese art of flower arrangement (Ikebana). As usual, Jean-Claude Ellena lends his unique style to this composition by accenting the Rose note with Grapefruit citrus and tangy Rhubarb, with a light Green Tea note in the background surrounded with bright citrus throughout.

    In my opinion this is a Rose perfume for people who don't like Rose so much! Another thing I love about what Ellena has done here is that he has made it so light and refreshing that you don't get tired of smelling it. It is constantly fascinating and drawing you closer. A lot like his other creation "Iris Ukiyoé" (another one inspired by Japan). But whereas that one was the smell of Iris surrounded by bright citrus, this one is a sparkling Rose. Fresh and uplifting! Fantastic stuff.

    Rose and rhubarb. Hermes has another scent with rose and rhubarb, Eau de Pamplemousse Rose. If I understand correctly, the rhubarb note either enhances the grapefruit in EdPR, or it acts as the grapefruit if amped up enough. In Rose Ikebana we see rose and rhubarb again, but the proportions are completely different. The rose is turned up much stronger, the rhubarb/grapefruit is turned down significantly. Some people see grapefruit here instead of rhubarb, and I think that is understandable. To me, the rose is nice, but I am not really sure the rhubarb integration does anything for me; it drags it down a notch in my mind.

    To be worn when feigning innocence.

    Very pretty & well-crafted but somehow fails to grab my attention.

    It can't just be that it has less longevity than you would expect for the price - after all, I fell passionately in love with Chanel's 28 La Pausa and that doesn't last much longer - so maybe it's just a bit too well-behaved: it has no surprises.

    It's pretty, but not beautiful. If you want a rose my advice would be to go for something a bit more grown-up.

    Very nice yet ridicilously overpriced rose fragrance. It's very simple, cheery and beautiful, and very much on the feminine side. Hard for me to imagine this one on a man, but to each his own.

    Perfectly balanced supporting sweet and green notes makes the rose smell very fresh and ripe, and the overall impression is very vital and positive. Little sunshine and ringing laughter, bottled, right in here.

    Rose Ikebana seems to be a previous test that Hermés did with a vegetal flowery aroma surrounded by just a pinch of leather, something that they would go a little bit deeper 4 years later with Kelly Caleche. If you remove the powdery aroma of iris and the leather purse sensation that the base gives you, you have Rose Ikebana. It`s a lovely fruity rose fragrance, that doesn`t seem so strong, but doesn`t seem either so fleshless as some of the Hermessence fragrances, like Paprika Brasil for instance. Rose Ikebana starts slightly citrus, then you have a vaguely fruity aroma. The rose shows up fast, and it`s a tea rose aroma, with just a touch of clove that gives the rose accord a warm detail that fades soon. When all the evolution finishes, you get for the rest of the day a musky rose, a chic and harmless one. If you like Kelly Caleche except for the leather aroma, i strongly recommend you this one.
