Reviews of Ballerina No.1

Ah, Angel! I had the feeling you couldn't be far away and you're not. Shall we name this Ballerina #1 or Angel Flanker #8 million and 2?

Fruity opening, floral heart and metallic musky dry down. All smelling of the chemicals that it consists of. I doubt a true distilled oil came anywhere near the building when this was being worked out.

No better nor worse than any other chemical fruity floral out there, but that doesn't make it good. Rosine should stick to what they do best, variations on the rose, not Angel.

Not awful, but not good either.

Apparently named after a pink rose with clusters of small flowers of the open, single-layer-of-petals variety, this is a pretty safe fruity floral, not without some charms. After a worrying opening which resembles the done-to-death sugary rose-geranium combo, Ballerina No 1 skips into more appealing territory. The rose accord gets less uptight and more relaxed, coupled with a vague pulpy fruitiness with flashes of living green. This is the phase that most caught my attention because it was the most animated and natural.
Soon enough the lactonic base which is the selling point of this offering wells up, first giving a stupor-inducing body lotion impression but slowly evolving towards the milk mentioned in the notes. Almost but not quite: milky notes in perfumery often suffer from a residual metallic aftertaste and that’s the case here as well. Eventually, this milkiness takes over completely, distorting and subjugating the floral notes.
One gets the expected modest Rosine projection: I’d spritz through 2-4 ml in a day’s wear no problem.
Ballerina No 1 is filed away in the overstuffed category of ‘likeable enough but not memorable’.

Notes according to the Rosine site:
Top: Pear, Peach, Freesia, Bergamot
Heart: Rose, Peony, Violet, Raspberry
Base: Milk, vanilla, Musk, Sandalwood
