Rose is used and abused so much so that finding a rose centered niche perfume that is exquisite is rare. Rosa Gallica is a translucent woody rose, linear and reliable, but uninspiring. Brecourt fragrances have exemplary silage and longevity and RG is no exception. I have RG on for 8 hours and it is still alive on my skin and clothes. Too bad that it is nothing special.
