    Hi, I was wondering if it was worth getting these perfumes if i already have the Creed Fleur de the bulgare. Are they similar to Creed's version ? - Jo malone red roses - Diptyque eau rose - Diptque lombre dans leau - rosine zest rose Thank you!

    L'ombre dans l'eau is very different,it has a big, fun vegetal-green note up top, and then it's sweeter, with a berry jam note. I like it a lot (and I love the body wash as well).

     

    The other two are nice but perhaps not particularly distinctive (and eau rose doesn't last long on me). If you want rose, I'd rather look into other perfumes by Rosine, like Rose d'amour, Twill Rose, Rose d'homme, which all have their own twists. Or the recently resurrected (in France) Paco Rabanne Calandre (creamy spicy rose).

    L'ombre dans l'eau is definitely not discreet, so i would not recommend it if that's what you are looking for. The malone and the eau rose are definitely discreet, but too much - they don't last long.

     

    Given the requirement, Zest de rose is certainly a good choice, a natural smelling rose emphasizing the citrusy aspects of the flower. So would be Rose d'amour, a natural rose emphasizing the green aspect of the rose. In any case, if you are in Paris, you should stop by the Rosine store (there's one in Palais Royal) and smell.

     

    Another thing to look into would be the (expensive) Hermes Rose Ikebana, a pale rose.

    The Jo Malone Red Roses is a good choice for discreet natural smelling roses.

    As Cacio said, the L'Ombre dans L'eau is definitely not discreet. 

    You may like Annick Goutal Rose Absolue- that is a gorgeous rose scent. It is quite short lived though. Very natural smelling . Different from the Creed.

    Since you like naturalness in roses (as do I), I think you would like Annick Goutal Rose Absolue-- but get the eau de parfum, not the more recently-released concentration called "eau parfumée", which is much lighter and more fleeting.  This is six different roses, combined.  

     

    Again, I think you would like Montale Highness Rose, which a parfum.  This is just a simple, natural rose that smells very like my rugosa, "Roseraie de l'Hay".  Highness Rose wears close to the skin and lasts a long time.  See The Perfume Shoppe for this fragrance if you can't get it locally.

     

    Jo Malone Red Roses is, in my opinion, not as good as Creed FdTRB.  I have not been able to feel any desire for it, much as I love rose scents.

    Diptyque L'Ombre Dans L'Eau is fantastic but utterly different from any other rose I've smelled-- with its blackcurrant and Bulgarian rose, it somehow manages to smell of fresh tomato leaves-- that smell when you have a just-picked tomato in your hand.  I'm sure you know what smell I mean.  It is not a shy scent by any means.

    Rosine Un Zeste de Rose is citrusy and pretty but too fleeting for me.

    Diptyque Eau Rose did not make a big first impression on me, but I will have to try it again.  I remember finding it quite light.

    Hermès Rose Ikebana is not particularly rosy.  Big grapefruity top note there.  Very nice, though I find I wear it when I'm in the mood for a citrus, not a rose.

    Eau Rose is a pleasant rose, which is complemented by a fairly strong litchi note at the top, which adds some fruity sweetness.(It's not super sweet, though.) It's less high pitched and citrusy than Fleurs de The Rose Bulgare.

    This has got to be one of the best rose scents I have ever laid my nose on.

    Maybe that is why The Perfume Shoppe is selling it at discount then.  It still isn't cheap, but I understand it cost $900/100ml bottle originally.

     

    Having said that, I still prefer FdTRB myself.  For me Highness Rose is a bit too photo-realistic.  I feel like I'm wearing my rose bush.

    Highness Rose is wonderful and what a shame it's discontinued. 

    post #13 of 21

    l'ombre dans l'eau is definitely not a typical rose scent to me, and i don't even think of it as a rose scent at all - it's so very, very green! absolutely beautiful though, i adore it.

     

    a very realistic, plush rose scent that's also extremely affordable is l'occitane rose 4 reines. no spiciness, darkness or real depth, but it smells almost photo-realistically of rose on my skin and i think it is quite lovely. rose ikebana is very pretty too, but i agree that it contains a pretty big dollop of citrus. still more of a rose frag to me, though.

    Thanks Hednic! So glad it is not discontinued.  Highness Rose is one I tried at Montale in Paris. My sister and I both swooned over it.

    From what I understood from the personnel at the Perfumeshoppe, the Highness Rose was excess stock inventory from the old Place Vendome boutique that was liquidated and sent out through distributors to retail establishments. Can't know for sure the truth of this.
