On me I can detect two phases:

Firstly, the rose. The rose is fresh, light and elegant. More on the elegant side. Neither dark nor creamy, this rose is on the nimble side. There is an agreeable sweetness mixed with just enough greenness to balance out the sweetness.

Secondly, the second phase, constituted of a sweetish and non-distinct impression that is hard to characterise. The rose, initially still present, is inexorably swallowed by this olfactory melasse.

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

This spring scent’s rede is nice, but nothing truly special. The second phase is rather unimpressive, and the initial rose is not special enough to push this composition into the positive realm. 2.75/5.

I at first smelt Parfait de Roses and Rose 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.

Parfait de Roses is full of radiance thanks to the central Rose Centifolia accord. Its plush, honeyed sweetness reminds me of a delectable rose centifolia jam that I had tasted before, and yet it's adorned with a mild tartness and a bit of the green leafy aspect, as if it won't simply give up its vegetal life even after being turned into an exquisite jam.

The rose liqueur accord is soon poured within. Its intense, rich sweetness turns the composition even more decadent. The balance between luscious sweetness and saccharine toothache is a fine line to walk, and the subtle vegetal greenery and the round tartness of the liqueur accord did manage to help Parfait de Roses to hold its ground. But unfortunately, after about 3 hours, a generic gourmand creamy base starts to materialize and evetually sweep all over the composition. The intense sweetness of rose liqueur then turns on the rose centifolia accord and chokes her into oblivion. The aftermath is a saccharine, monotonous creamy rose base until the end.

I experienced a heavy to moderate sillage and a 9-hour longevity.

I was delightfully charmed by the lively opening of Parfait de Roses, a near perfect balance between natural floralcy and gourmand decadence. However, the monolithic, commercial creamy gourmand dry down left me utterly disappointed. It's as if Lancôme suddenly gets cold feet after the interesting opening, and proceeds to cling back onto the conventional gourmand base, which is a pattern that I experienced with other fragrances from this Grand Cru collection as well.

If you happen to be looking for a rose jam fragrance, I'd definitely suggest Parfait de Roses, as its opening is among the most dynamic ones that I had previously tried. But I'd recommend waiting for the dry down as well, in order to have a more thourough idea about it.
