Thread: Rose Anonyme

    Default Rose Anonyme

    After trying several rose scents and thinking tbis would be a sample I let my wife have, I must say this is a wonderful fragrance. I won't break down notes, but I generally think most rose scent smell old ladyish or stodgey. I have Azarro Acteur in my collection and it is the opposite end of the spectrum for rose scents. This is a beautiful fragrance that has a hint of oud and patchouli, it stays fresh and light enough that could be worn year round. I will be picking up a bottle. Well done Atelier.

    Have to agree with you. Also have this and like it a lot.

    It's a nice uplifting rose, not heavy at all. It has a very strange not in it though. Best I can describe it is those ozone purifier machines from sharper image. They have a certain smell. Almost like chlorine.

    Also, very little oud. And a bit too sweet. But a better effort than most.

    I adore the candied rose opening of Rose Anonyme, it's IMO so refreshing in the sea of generic medicinal oud fragrances. But the more I wear it the more the oud comes out and the fragrance smells generic just like its oud siblings sadly

    It strongly reminded me of A*Men sanw the burnt caramel note.

    It did not get the A*men connection. I also found it to have a very diaphanous ozonic incense, rose and leather. scent I think its a very good fragrance.
    Very unique among the plethora of Rose/Ouds in the market.

    I agree that this is a unique fragrance. It was actually the first one with Oud that I found I enjoyed. I'll always appreciate it for that reason at least, but I also find it to be a lovely rose option in its own right.

    Love this one. Have sniffed it a few times in the last few months. I haven't figured out when/where exactly I would wear this one, but if I don't pull the trigger for myself, I have a feeling the GF will be getting this as an Easter gift.

    I find virtually all of the Ateliers to be very nice, and this one is in my top 2-3 faves.

    This sounds fantastic! I wish my local Sephora carried Atelier. It shows up on their website, but there's nothing locally. I really need to sample more of their stuff.

    A very nice scent - not my favorite rose, but certainly one of the better ones for sure.

    I have to applause their sampling program, so cheap and so quickly deliver only about 3-4 days (they use EMS, I think) for it to reach my country which normally takes 2 weeks for packages from around the world to arrive.

    Regarding the line, exclusive of the 2 metal ones I have not sampled, I find them to be quite boring and smell similar to other fragrances, the 2 that still capture my attention now is Ambre Nue (cleaned up, gourmand version of MKK by Serge Lutens) & Mistral Patchouli (a preppy patchouli that manage to smell modern and clean but still has a classic 80s patchouli powerhouse vibe to it)

    Really like Rose anonyme as well... totally unisex, very modern take on rose. Maybe I'll buy it!

    ^ you get silver iris and gold leather in the kit now.

    Personally I love Gold Leather. I bought it on first sniff when it launched in August. Boozy, oudy, leather. Crazy longevity. Yes please!
