    L'Eau de Rose by Ramon Monegal

    I'm really appreciating this particular niche brand above all because of its unpretentious simplicity, its radical naturalness and the indolic and carnal vibe expressed by the implemented ingredients (floral notes in particular). The rose is in here grassy/botanic, orangy, realistic in its nectar and musky with a fruity irresistible feel. The main note, combined with the neroli and citrus, becomes luxuriant and penetrating. The rose/neroli alternance is continuous and brilliant, becoming in a while the main theme of the olfactory fatigue. I detect at distance the supporting role of the patchouli which anyway doesn't take the stage firmly occupied by the floral combo. The composition remains almost aqueous for a long part of the development and the fruity temperament of the different qualities of roses combined in the mix preserves the juice to arouse any kind of stuffy feel (exuding on the contrary a really modern and sultry fruity scent of rose). Longevity and sillage are on the average on my skin.
