    Iquitos by Alain Delon

    I can see what they were trying to do with this perfume. They were trying to create the smell of real roses using artificial ingredients. Rose Otto is very greenish and doesn't smell like real roses, because of the process used to obtain the oil. So Iquitos tried to recreate the rose using other ingredients. If you try hard enough, you can imagine a real rose when you smell this perfume. But if you don't try hard enough, it smells like rubber. It's the aldehydes that give this rubber smell to it.

    I don't hate this perfume, but come on, this could never be considered a masterpiece. So I'll give it a neutral rating.
