Ooh oh ..I love these two fragrances soooo much .BOTh are excellent .
Do you like florals with aldehydes ? Do you like Chanel No 5 ? If you do - then you will love Iris Poudre. Iris Poudre on me at least - is so similar in many ways to Chanel No 5 EDP but a little airier - slightly more transparent. Though it's called Iris Poudre , to me, it's not the main note. I also get ylang .Very beautifully done scent. I would not mind a bottle of it at all.
Re. Une Rose. Do you love love love rose and I mean truly want to smell of rose for hours ? Do you like a bit of amber ? Do you like a heavy hitting scent ? Then you will adore Une Rose.
I would be hard pushed to choose between the two but I have bought Une Rose. It's not an old fashioned rose but a deep organic rich red rose and it's longevity is truly exceptional. une Rose is like turkish rose oil / otto especially in the opening.
Also Une Rose is not an old fashioned rose at all - it can be worn by both sexes for sure. It's not like Creed Fleurs de Bulgarie which has a sort of really vintage feminine graceful vibe to it.
One spray and you're done.
Some people do not like the base - Karanal - which sometimes can feel abit 'dirty smelling ' at the very end of the dry down . Also sometimes, the truffle earthy note pops up .This can smell like fresh white button mushrooms to me but I love Une Rose in total so I have no problems with that. To me Une Rose is a masterpiece.
