About Rose Poetique

A tribute to Damask Rose, this luscious floral oriental fragrance manages to lift one’s spirit. The Greek poet Sappho said of the Damask rose “It is the pride of plants, and queen of flowers,” and this perfume is a unique symphony of accords that Manos describes as Jubilation.

Reviews of Rose Poetique

There is one review of Rose Poetique.
Manos Gerakinis Rose Poetique is part of the “Parfums de Jour” trio. As a fan of rose, I really like it. It opens with a lot of fresh greenness but dries down into a sweet and sensual mix, really enjoyable, but provocative enough to not be too formulaic or familiar. This is another note pyramid that makes sense. It has a sharp opening with a sweeter rosy dry down and even smoother sweet/woody landing in the base:

Top = saffron, rhubarb
Heart = rose, patchouli, labdanum, raspberry
Base = vanilla, cashmere wood, sandalwood, musk

I love Rose Poetique, aptly named, and it probably edges Immortelle as my favorite of the three, really a very well done rose fragrance in a sea of other rose-dominant options. It balances out sweetness, sharpness/greenness, and overall woody/musky smoothness and agreeability.

Rose Poetique is priced slightly higher than Immortelle and Pivoine, at $168 for 60ml, but it does feel a little denser and richer, to that point. And like the other two, it’s only sold in the US via Perfumology, currently, as best I can tell.
