Reviews of Brūlure de Rose 13

Rose Jam by Lush opening, which is a very syrupy and sweet rose. Unlike the Rose Jam it does have noticeable basneotes and it the sugar makes way for more grounded ambery base.

Dipped in syrup rose sitting atop raspberry jam and musk. Should be a cloying suffocating mess, instead PG’s usual light touch imparts a certain aloofness which makes it more desirable, natch. Decent have-your-cake-and-eat-it stuff with a bit of oriental weight on its hips.

A fresh (citrusy) but very sweet rose that reminds me of chewing gum. I was said I smelled like candy. No big evolution. Sweet rose, nothing more. The name is misleading. May be there's some vanilla if you sniff it on your wrist after 2 hours, before it disappears. Projection is good during the first hour. Very feminine and
Edit from neutral to positive: I needed to smell it again all day. It's been obsessing me. I'll buy a full bottle soon.

The smell of this fragrance is just intoxicating! Rose and Vanilla. A bit dark yet very comforting. It's like a magnet to the nose. Many have complimented my wife when she wore this.

Genre: Floral Oriental

This beautifully crafted, sweet, soft, rose-based floral oriental is almost too pretty for its own good. The accord of mild rose and sweet vanilla established over Brūlure de Rose’s first few minutes immediately brings to mind Maurice Roucel’s delightful Tocade, done for Rochas in the mid-1990s. Yet as much as the newer scent echoes its predecessor’s fundamental structure, Brūlure de Rose distinguishes itself through a different interpretation of the shared theme.

Whereas Tocade remains bright and somewhat crystalline throughout its development – thanks perhaps to some judiciously employed green notes – Brūlure de Rose grows darker, softer, and more voluptuous as it wears. I attribute this effect to perfumer Pierre Guillaume’s use of a very rich, almost smoky wood accord, reminiscent of those he’s employed in some of his gourmand woody orientals, including Coze and Aomassaļ. The result is less obviously “pretty” than Tocade, less obviously feminine, and more ambiguous in mood. If Tocade can seem relentlessly cheerful, Brūlure de Rose - despite its pastel pink color - suggests the capacity, if not the inclination, to brood. It’s also a lot more adaptable to use by adventuresome men, particularly as its drifts into its woody drydown.

Tooth achingly sweet. Less a scorched brūlée, where creamy sweet rose would have the bitter bite of the crisp burnt sugar to play against, more an infusion of rose, warmed gently in a pan with milk and mixed into a selection of confections. For me, the evolution of the scent, and it does evolve quickly and interestingly, was a study of the confections the rose is conveyed in, rather than the rose itself. Good quality white chocolate filled with raspberry pieces and lavishly flecked with vanilla and rose petals, candied roses imprisoned in sugar, roses buried under thick pannacotta or the brūlée that hasn't yet been burnt. And that's my gripe, the rose is constantly buried under it's confection, peeps out enticingly before being swept back under. Enticing can be wonderful ... but sometimes it flips over to frustration. Overall this is lovely , but not quite what it could have been if more contrast had been there to balance the sweetness, or to lighten the edible burden the rose is under that prevents the whole composition from truely shining. To me the most obvious scent here is raspberry, not rose. Once I let go of the idea that rose 'should' be at the heart of this I liked it a lot more.
It gets a thumbs up because I like the idea, and it certainly entertains through it's progression. One to try, just for the fun of it,
