I absolutely adore the smell of roses but it isn’t the kind of smell that I want to wear everyday but when I am in the mood then this is one of my favourites.
The bottle is so very pretty and feminine and the fragrance matches the bottle perfectly.
It smells predominantly of roses but it is a lovely rose smell. Instead of smelling sickly sweet the rose smell is lovely and natural smelling like real roses instead of synthetic ones. It also has other scents in it to compliment the smell and also to tone down the roses because as much as I like the smell of rose it can be a bit overwhelming just on its own.
This has a slight spiciness to it which is lovely with the rose scent as well as some other floral notes which combine perfectly with the rose and compliment it. The thing that makes this smell so good though is that it also contains some white musk which is one of my all time favourite smells. The musk is what really compliments all the floral notes in the perfume and it stays in place as a slight background smell to the floral notes and stops them from being too sickly sweet.
I am actually a big fan of floral perfumes but I know that a lot of people cannot stand them but done well they can be lovely and this is a really well done perfume. It is bound to appeal to a large amount of people not just those who love rose. It is very modern smelling and doesn’t really smell like a nana perfume even though a lot of the notes in it are a bit old fashioned. The way they have combined them is very good and I can see this appealing to young girls as well as anyone else who wants a really pretty and feminine fragrance.
Even though this is just an eau de toilette it is fairly strong smelling and it lasts a lot longer on my skin than a lot of eau de parfums do. I like to spray a little bit of this on my neck and then spray it into a mist and walk through it and this is enough to scent me and linger on me for the whole day. Although I can smell it for the whole day it isn’t an obnoxious perfume that will offend other people as it stays quite close to you and only if someone gets close will they be able to smell so it won’t completely fill a room when you walk in and offend anyone.
