    Default Anyone try Christian Lacroix's Tumulte? dark rose?

    Hello everyone,

    I have seen this fragrance (Christian Lacroix's Tumulte) advertised in a few different places and it has really caught my eye.... I love the red bottle of course But unfortunately I have not had a change to try it yet... Has anyone tried and would you be able to liken it to any other fragrance that's on the market right now?

    I see that rose note is in it and as I am on a hunt for a very rich deep mysterious rose fragrance I was wondering if this might be it! I am looking for a dark rose - something that's velvety and plush and can be compared to black lace...

    Happy Valentines Day to everyone!

    I've not tried it myself, but my friend spritzed it on and it wasn't really a dark rose from what I recall. It's quite sweet and not really what I'd call a dark fragrance. I'm sorry I have no better description; if I'm in a shop I'll sniff again! (My friend ended up not getting it.)

    Hi Jen,

    Thank you so much for your reply... I guess I will just have to continue my search for that deep dark mysterious rose

    Creed's Fleur de the rose Bulgare is a dark red rose.

    Serge Lutens Fumerie Turque is a black leather bustier and full red lips, with caramelized petals laid on a moist pink tongue.




    A spritz of each is black lace.



    I kid you not.



    Please, spritz responsibly.

    Why not try...?

    The rose note is just what you describe: velvety and plush, a deep, dark red, yet it never takes over and becomes musty and rank. *Paired with jasmine and ginger, it sits on a creamy bed of sandalwood, Bourbon vanilla, and myrrh. *The topnotes of cumin and civet are fairly notorious, though: *They may hold you back, but the rose note at the heart of this scent is fantastic. *It's not a "rose perfume" per se like Stella or Very Irrésistible - just roses running up and down the fragrance - but it showcases this beautiful, giant red rose at its heart so wonderfully.
