Reviews of Sottile 1.61

In 1972 the Perfumer's Workshop came out with its Tea Rose, a perfect rendition of this classic scent. It smells green, very green, although most tea roses I've encountered have been yellow. This has been the standard until now.

Yosh's take on the scent is, according to her own website, combined with the green notes of muguet. The effect is true, bright, refreshing and long-lasting. For me it is like emerging from the florist's walk-in cooler, with the notes of a tea rose bouquet suddenly hitting the warmer air outside.

There is no date given for the composition, but from hints online I would imagine it would be around 2004/5. Tania Sanchez gave it four stars as she did with the PW classic. She noted a bit of clove in the composition, which I do not.

All in all, if you love the scent of tea rose, you can not go wrong with either the PW original or the Yosh version.

Positive review: Pros -- enchanting simplicity, wears close to skin, good longevity Cons -- linear solifore

I think this makes a wonderful fresh masculine skin scent --just out of the shower with a good-ol'fashioned Victorian rose soap. The perfume oil lasts forever; the lily note keeps the rose form getting "dirty" during the drydown. The temperature stays cool, dewy -- this is not a oriental Mata Hari rose (1876) or a patchouli bomb (Voleur de roses). I find it has a calming effect, like lavender essential oil.

Regarding the name, first and foremost, I believe "Sottile" means delicate, when referring to perfume.

Anyway, this fragrance is weird. It's a dark, musty, dank rose that smells like a Halloween shop or the inside of a Halloween mask or one of those indoor rides at Disneyworld. Definitely avant-garde and interesting but nothing I'd wear.

Rose and tea. Interesting. It's more rose. A very subtle fragrance. If you're looking for another rose scednt, this is one to try.
