Reviews of Rose

I find this Rose quite creative. Yes, it's mostly a nice, polite rose, but I like the way it's supported by unexpected notes. It's got hairspray aldehydes on top, which is a common classic combination, but there's just a hint of rubbery oud in there as well, and the combination of the plasticky aldehydes and rubber makes for a really interesting counterpoint to the rose. There's also a hint of dank green herbs, which I find a clever combination as well. I like that this feels straightforward but rewards close smelling. Thumbs up.

Crisp, green and... rosey, albeit with a marked geranium bent. No complaints from me, but if given three seconds I could name other roses I'd rather wear for their greater worldliness: Une Rose (Frederic Malle), Paestum Rose (Eau d’Italie), Nahéma (Guerlain), Rose Poivrée (The Different Company), Incense Rosé (Tauer), Black Aoud (Montale), Rose 31 (Le Labo).

Rose water over something soapy; perhaps a sprinkle of sandalwood dust if one is trying really hard. Nice enough, but a bit too simple to be a perfume. It’s a cologne, they claim, but a bottle of rosewater may do just as well.

wonderful and very natural smell of rose with a soft patchouli at the background that is throwing off sparks on a low heat. It has a clean/soapy quality mixed with a slight retro feeling that makes it very comfortable and enjoyable.
I love it!

Opens up with a nice green and leafy note. The rose begins to creep in, but is a more subtle and lighter rose than used in C&S dark rose. This one stays the course fairly well and doesn’t stray much from the green and light rose vibe. It is enjoyable, though definitely very feminine. While it isn’t something I could wear I think it would be fantastic on a woman. Foe me, thumbs neutral, but for a woman this would be thumbs up.

This opens up with a very green, tart leafy note. A small, pink rose bud of a note slowly drifts in. The green note stays throughout the scent, with the slow drydown a greenish, woody soft and subtle close. The green opening is very tart, but the green of the drydown is dusted with a patch note, retaining the herbal qualities and adding to the woody effect.
This is a soft, straightforward pink rose fragrance. I enjoyed this, but possibly not for the price that this goes for.
