Reviews of Pink Quartz

Fizzy, resinous, and woody opening. A rush of notes; all mixed up. Champagne-like citrus. Drifting, swirling fumes of various roses and dark wood, with a bucket of patchouli juice thrown in. This frag packs a wallop. Too much, too soon, and my nose just adores it. Aggressive enough to mistake this for a Montale or Mancera fragrance, the way it assaults my senses all at once.

After a little time, PQ calms and softens a bit. The roses take over. A beautiful blend of roses. They are deep. Almost woody-green. Dark colored. Too marvelous for words. The roses float on a liquid bath of balsamic and incense and other chypre goodness. It's all very intense. Perhaps too much, for the average rose-lover. The roses remind me of a combination of antique rosewater, soft tea rose, and a gingered rose.

Rose of course, lingers on, with an addition of spicy amber, myrrh, and other dark nuances... Roses and patchouli merge into one note, one layer towards the "end". This scent is less "pink quartz" gemstone, more like Rhodonite, with dark pink and black veins equally distributed throughout... Sweetens just the tiniest bit much later.

nothing against the stuff...but it's nice to sniff a nice juicy rose dominant scent without oud in it...very pretty citrus flavored rose opening...perfect touch of spice , a little gingery freshness adds to the aromatic quality of this...has an Oriental richness and rose note that reminds me of Amouage Lyric Man...a faint echo of the rich mysterious opulence and animalic carnality of Iquitos...a faint nod to Zino Davidoff...yeah, it's that kind of rich/heady type of fragrance bordering on semi-powerhouse...nice soft musky rose drydown with touches of incense/resiny flavors...a job well done...

Not a red, delicious, ripe, sexy rose, but a teen interpretation of a rose, still “unripe” and dewy but... definitley a real one! The opening is fresh and sparkling with bitter citrus and cold spices (ginger), introducing the tender rose note, which smells as luminous and crystalline as I imagine a faerie's breath should be. In the base, delicate incense and myrrh allow the fragrance more depth and quite a long life -though a delicate one, not particularly intense or radiating. The scent is soffused with a serene and optimistic attitude I liked a lot.
