Positive Reviews of Rose Wood / Blackcurrant / Cyclamen by Korres

Total Reviews: 1
The strictly female scent from KORRES trio, confused me a bit. Having reviewed the two other EDT’s first ( both of them could easily be considered as unisex), I was expecting something else. Used to the warm oriental-woody character of those I was initially disappointed with this one. A blast of freshly cut roses and grass over a hazy fruity background opens the composition. The middle is more pleasant yet still floral (Rose note persists but it’s sweeter) with all kinds of flowers and blossoms : rose, lily,cyclamen, violet and freesia according to KORRES (It’s OK if you can smell only roses). The best is kept for last . The base is powdery floral with white musk nuances at the end. Innocence and purity. I can imagine it (in a different bottle of course) on Queen Elizabeth's the 1st boudoir. Rather classic than contemporary. If you like YSL’s ‘’Paris’’ , L’Occitane’s ‘’ Eau de 4 Reines’’ or Jean Charles Brosseau's ''Ombre Rose'', this is your next ‘’coup de coeur ‘’.
