A pleasant rose impression form the start: more in the darker side but not somber, quite intense but not overwhelming.

The drydown maintains the rose core, but adds gently spicy undertones. Towards the end touches of powdery elements are present.

I get moderate sillage, good projection and seven hours of longevity on my skin.

This spring scent is not especially original or brilliant, but composed of good-quality ingredients and well crafted. 3/5.

I at first smelt Parfait de Roses and Roses Berberanza together at a Lancôme counter, before testing them more thouroughly one after another. According to Lancôme, these two rose fragrances showcase two different types of roses in perfumery: Rose Centifolia and Rose Damascena, respectively. Smelling them side by side, the two roses contrast each other like light and shadow, and I think Lancôme did succeed in hightlighting certain special characteristics of these two different types of roses.

Roses Berberanza is significantly darker than Parfait de Roses as a whole, but its opening has a very interesting creamy, even buttery feeling around the ruby rose that really evokes the rich aftertaste of pistachio! After about 20 minutes, Roses Berberanza soon proceeds to turn dark purple by wrapping the damask rose with oud and patchouli in order to highlight its spicy, fruity tart and green aspects. Sadly, on me, Roses Berberanza seems to favour thoughtless hard punch than taking time to adjust the subtle nuances. The end results is a rather generic commercial rose-patchouli-oud accord, with an intense, purple, gooey plum-like fruitchouli over a the ubiquitous raspberry rose-oud combination.

At least the late dry down has the last saving grace, with the rose becomes more and more tart to cut through the intense rose-patchouli-oud accord, as if the rose sacrificed itself to shed its wilted petals into the saccharine darkness with a moderate result. The sillage is quite heavy throughout its developement, while the longevity is around 10 hours on my skin.

Personally, I was fascinated by the initial pistachio impression! But the main body of Roses Berberanza, the conventional, clumsy rose-patchouli-oud accord, left me utterly uninspired. Like the other offerings from this exclusive range of Lancôme, I would recommend giving it a try based on the interesting and evocative opening of pistachio,but I would also suggest against a blind buy especially to those who are not enamoured with ubiquitous fruitchouli and faux "rose-oud" in commercial western fragrances.
