Reviews of Rose Praline

It was bound to happen. Rosine has entered Angel territory.

There is some danger establishing a house, whose offerings are all variations on the themes of one floral scent, but at least we have under the Rosine label, every possible combination of this major player with other olfactory ingredients.

Rose Praline begins like an Angel flanker with its cocoa, chocolate and berry notes (the latter not mentioned in the tree). Happily, this fades quite quickly and the serene rose rises to the top. Geranium keeps it drily anchored and the cardamom gives it a slight edge, which is welcome as it helps to cut the cloying Angel gourmand notes. The amber and white musk come forward to allow the rose to rest as it slowly shakes off all the gourmand notes.

Praline has a distinct sweet, caramel scent and it is not present here. Some immortelle would have imparted that aroma, but it is absent.

So, the result is a rather non-descipt, light rose scent that does not deliver on its name. Tame!

I have to be very careful of rose scents because rose usually comes off much too dominant and cloying to my nose. On top of that I find most gourmands to be too sweet for my tastes. So what am I doing reviewing Rose Praline? Even its name screams “Rose Gourmand!” I don’t know why I chose this one to review, but I’m pleased that I did… this one doesn’t scream. This is one delightful fragrance. Rose Praline is discrete and sophisticated; and the way it handles the disparate elements of rose, chocolate, amber, geranium, cocoa, and sandalwood is pure inspiration… I can identify all of these discretely presented notes in their balanced accords.

Everything in this scent is restrained… nothing goes to the dramatic or the cloying. Besides the notes already mentioned, there are the opening’s bergamot, the middle’s tea, and the drydown’s white musk that are listed in the pyramid – these meld seamlessly into the patterns.

Rose Praline is a rose and gourmand scent for rose and gourmands non-lovers. Subtle projection, subtle but classic development, decent longevity: A confident thumb’s up for this excellent scent.

Small mercies – this doesn’t smell like a chocolate coated Turkish delight. What seems like an odd pairing (chocolate and rose) is executed with the usual sophistication of this house. The gentle cardamom unobtrusively lifts the experience and the fragrance settles for a while, to my nose, on an unusual somewhat vegetal accord (the tea influence?), curious and subtle. An hour or so in, it’s a light chocolate and musk, the rose having gone into retirement. Interesting but a little too ‘languid’. Also, too much of a skin scent to be really enjoyable.

A similar rose-and-white-chocolate idea to Parfumerie Generale's Brulure de Rose. Both are fun and easy to wear. Rosine's take on the theme is a little more sharply rose yet still sweet, than PG's more calorific and rasberry infused version. This may be the hint of tea ( though I don't get the smokiness I'd expect with lapsang). Failed to distinguish the top notes though.
In all, there's room in my rose lover's wardrobe for one of these two, but they are similar enough for me not to have both.
