Reviews of Rose Royale

There is one review of Rose Royale.
If you are looking for a classic rose red soliflor you're not going to find it here. Rose Royale is a creamy pink floral, overlaid with an exotic fruit syrup, a sulphurous top note and a grainy white base. As the profile develops the fruity syrup fades out and the floral gets drier and drier.

To show just how complicated it is, a number of different influences can be identified : first of all a Yardley soliflor named Garden Rose - a delicate pink rose of a certain age. Then the syrupy fruity floral and What About Adam's piquant blackcurrant bud. And then there are : pre-modern rose & violet bouquets, French Lover's natural angelica root style musk, the indolic white floral bouquet. In the base are a Sables style immortelle, coriander, real woods and ambroxan. Rose Royale draws on an unusual mixture of influences. All of these can be felt in the profile to a greater or lesser extent and so it would be no surprise if such an eclectic mix were to seem a bit confused.

The question that arises when smelling Rose Royale is - who is it for? Tweenagers, young mums, seniors, all ages? We can tell from its style that Rose Royale is an elite fragrance aimed at a grande bourgeoise clientele, but whom precisely? The creamy pink floral is likely to be too staid for the youth market, whereas the combination of syrup and the modern trimmings may be a bit too ambitious for the mature lady who already has a clear idea of her perfume preferences. The trendy piquant fruit is not an ideal introduction to the classically soft pink floral, and when the dry grainy woody base comes in it upsets the poise of the mid section. It's not clear which generation would be entirely satisfied with all this chopping and changing. Perhaps its a metaphor of the aging process ... not life in a day but life in a spray.

If RR had not been so ambitious and just stuck to one simple theme it would be more coherent, and possibly more successful, but it would also be a less interesting perfume. This type of mild challenge may be something an experienced perfume lover would relish, but those who just want a nice summer scent for the garden party might decide to go elsewhere.
