Reviews of Deep Rose

Montale’s take on the saturated rose genre of which we are seeing something of a revival.
Here we have an intensely candied rose that also has noir and boozy aspects à la roses encountered in fragrances like Dark Rose and Portrait of a Lady. But also fluffed up with strong and airy peony and geranium notes that introduce a suggestion of red berry fruitiness. This is clearly a rose attempting to cover many bases except transparency. The backing is a lighter take on oud than is usual for Montale, and swirling musky and ambery notes which are something of an old reliable standby. It is a bit plasticky around the edges, but the vortex is furry, velvety and so red it’s turning black.
With time the peony accents come more to the fore and some of the intensity and personality is lost. Now Deep Roses is looking to let its hair down and spend the rest of its time being happy-go-lucky, rather than make a statement. And that’s alright, too.

Deep Rose opens with a bold rose note (you don't say...) of the same style of Czech & Speake's Dark Rose: nothing soapy or powdery, rather a dark, rich, humid and slightly boozy synthetic rose, dirtened (is that the verb? I mean "made dirtier") by a benzoin note which provides its peculiar carnal-camphoraceous feel, and a hint of oud on the base, which emerges as the scent evolves making it increasingly woodier, drier and darker. So basically another rose-oud scent, just a bit more centered on rose than on oud. Trendy yet elegant and decently pleasant, with a predictably rubbery and artificial drydown, which then finally settles on a nice, plastic, silky and dark rose accord. If you are familiar with Montale, it's just "another of their scents", if you aren't, then don't bother.
