    Voleur de Roses by L'Artisan Parfumeur

    This is one of my all time favourites and therefore I'll fail to express its glory in words. Rain, roses, things on the turn: this is like a Renaissance still life where everything is beautiful until you spot the decay on the peach and the fly crawling across the grapes. It's like a crimson strawberry that is close to turning bad and at its most delicious just before it does.

    So yes, there is a suggestion of vegetal collapse in this scent, but it's deftly handles and poetic.
