Imagined like a rose infusion, Eau Rose celebrates the multiple olfactory facets of the rose, in its natural state, as the days go by.
From the springtime and the morning dew, it has retained the invigorating, slightly tangy freshness, with the sharp notes of bergamot and blackcurrant.
The fruity freshness of lychee complements the sensation of petals of freshly cut Centifolia and Damascena at daybreak, laden with dew.
Coveted in Grasse and the Isparta region in Turkey, Rosa Centifolia and Rosa Damascena infusions sign an essentially natural fragrance whose apparent fragility gives way to a generous heart.
And when night falls, its floral wealth radiates more intense, sensual tones. The rose becomes fleshier and voluptuous, carried by the rounded, woody imprint of musks and cedar, and enhanced with a touch of honey.
A fragrance located somewhere between freshness and sensuality, like rose concrete, with the delicious scent of freshly picked flowers, expertly revitalized.
TOP NOTES: Bergamot, blackcurrant, lychee

This was in my local SpaceNK(UK) this morning, actually it was the candle I spotted first.
I tried the Roll On and compared to say L'Ombre dans L'Eau which I own, it very soft powdery woody rose. The fruity notes do stop it being a total granny's tin of talc. As someone who thinks any sex can wear what ever they want. This is quite feminine but do try it and decide for yourself.
Got a quick blast on my wrist and paper a couple of hours ago at the local Diptyque shop. I like it. It's a clean, bright 'pink' rose to me - more like the top of Homage or Fleurs de Bulgarie than the darker 'dusky maroon' rose of Une Rose. I have now used up every rose reference I have at hand, so there you go
I don't pick up on the fruity side or any overt blackcurrant - it just smells bright, perky, optimistic and quite unadorned. It has a carefree charm to it without trying too hard. I wouldn't peg this as immediately girly or femme, it's just refreshing and good. I was there to get some samples of the Vinaigre de Toilette and noticed the display, but when I go back I'll definitely give this one a bit more attention. As mentioned 100ml spray, a smaller roll on and a candle.

Went to Aedes on Friday to give it a try, (thank you for egging me on, Mike.)
First impression: If roses grew on trees that blossomed in the spring, this is what they would smell like.
A soft, slightly damp, muted rose, made very diffuse by a generous dosing of hedione, supported by slightly honeyed cedar/musk base. The listed blackcurrant is kept to a minimum and doesn't stick around.
I have to admit, this smells more like a perfect room spray, rather than a personal fragrance. The candle must be divine. I'd love to be in a room that smells of this.
Picked up a couple samples at SF Barney's because my cousin keeps telling me to get some for her (she sampled it in a previous visit and kept raving about it--it smelled wonderful on her). Very pretty, but a feminine rose I can probably not pull off. I'll stick with my L'Ombre Dans L'Eau.
I enjoy Eau Rose a lot too. To my nose, it's a very bright, crisp pink rose. People often describe fragrances as perfect complements to a starched white dress shirt. I don't think people usually say that about rose scents, but that's how I experience this one.
Also, unlike some others, I like the box very much!
