    Une Rose by Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle

    "What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet."
    - Juliet Capulet in Romeo & Juliet

    Clearly Shakespeare wasn't a rose fragrance enthusiast for the variance and nuances among rose scents are mind-boggling. I usually prefer my roses dewy fresh though there have been notable exceptions. UNE ROSE is anything but dewy. It is plummy yet transparent, with a prominent woodsy undertone and a wine-like vibe that I found alluring in the beginning but soon wore out its welcome with its grating, somewhat acetonal presence.

    Une Rose did knock my socks off though - with its pricetag.
