This perfume is my favourite by far, Asda have it on sale for £22 for 100ml don't fall trap to some shops though like I did when I first bought it. 50ml bottle for £25!!! 100ml last me 3-4months and that is with spraying it every day a few times. So worth the money in my opinion.
The perfume lasts all day plus I can still smell it on my coat a few days later. It is a flowery smell but not over the top, quite a sweetness upon it too.
** Packaging **
The box itself looks like this product should cost more than it does but then you open it up and see the beautiful little bag the bottle comes in which is covered in red roses with a string to pull close. Makes it look more expensive too. The only thing I disliked about the products packaging is the bottle when you get to the last few sprays it can be a pain to get it out. Though if you spray it enough it does eventually come out.
All in all a amazing present for any occasion for that important woman in your life.

What can i say!,this has got to be one of the best rose fragrance perfumes around at the moment.It reminds me of the true smell of rose petals i used to make perfume with as a child.The initial note of the perfume when first applied is parma violets,another aroma from my childhood,and this coupled with rose makes for a wonderful heady scent which lasts all day.The bottle has a lovely ergonomic shape and is good quality, it comes with a rose designed cotton pouch to keep it in and the outer box is very sturdy and nicely decorated.The fact that this is an eau de parfum makes it a fabulous buy at £16.49 for this size of bottle.Each time i wear it i get lovely comments from people,asking what perfume it is and where i bought it from. All in all a beautiful expensive looking gift for an authentic rose lover.Paul Smith is a genius
I bought this scent for light everyday summer wear, and I think it fits the task perfectly. However it would work its magic equally well on a warm evening breeze in summer. As a perfume it is relatively inexpensive and yet still good quality, so there is no smelling the price tag. I would describe it as a light modern floral perfume of pale pink roses and a strong but balanced undertone of green tea. The official description includes a 'sparkling halo of violet and magnolia flowers', which makes the rose scent slightly more complex. However it is essentially a very clear and uncomplicated scent that is pretty but not too girly, with a slight air of sophistication (added by the green tea). The Eau de Parfum has good staying power, but is by no means overpowering, meaning that it is a very easy to wear scent. If worn in the evening, it has the potential to be quite a sexy scent, as it reminds me of the smell of roses wafting on a summer breeze at dusk after a scorching hot day, causing their sweet perfume to be released into the air. Perhaps this has something to do with the fact that the delicate rose scent was captured from living flowers and inhaled through a glass jar, rather than dead blooms crushed and their essence distilled.
Paul Smith's Rose Perfume was left, by Santa, in my stocking at Christmas. Santa certainly knows what a girl likes!
The Rose perfume is basically what it says on the bottle! It's smells of roses! Beautiful, delicate and delightful roses. At first wearing this perfume, personally, was a little daunting. I tend to wear scents such as CKIN2U and Colleen and this perfume is a leap in the other direction from my usual scents.
This perfume is mature, feminine but also makes a statement. It's sophisticated, enticing and a perfect everyday perfume. It's a scent that i personally think would suit people in their 20 - 40's, however, i'm sure anyone could pull it off. The scent also lasts. I've never had a perfume that i've sprayed lightly in the morning and could still smell at night when i'm about to jump into my shower!
The packaging is really cute. A very simple and understated bottle with a silver, coil design lid, enclosed in a minature rose-printed drawstring bag, which all came in a little cream, flowered Paul Smith cardboard box. The pink coloured perfume can be seen through the opaque bottle. It's a perfectly sophisticated style of bottle that it could sit on a dresser or on show.
From Paul Smith, 100ml of this perfume can be purchased for £56.00. A little bit expensive? Perhaps. It's worth it though. Definetely a perfume that, once finished, i will be purchasing again.
If you're looking for a feminine, mature and statement fragrance, this would definetely be the one for you!
Regularly described as pink and fluffy by my other half, I love all things pretty, girly and feminine. I tend to go for really feminine traditional fragrances, floral jasmines, honeysuckles and roses being my favourites.
When I discovered Paul Smith Rose I thought all my christmas's had come at once.
I had some birthday money to spend last year and managed to find a bottle on ebay 100ml for the bargain price of £29.
The perfume comes in a lovely basic plain cream box with a simple picture of a rose and the Paul Smith logo, inside I was delighted to find a pretty little draw string bag with my perfume in. The bottle is quite plain it is narrow at the bottom getting wider at the top, just plain glass with a silver ribbed lid. I think this is perfect for the simple fragrance that is in the bottle, it also looks quite stylish on my bathroom shelf.
The fragrance itself is absolutely divine, it smells....you guessed it....of roses. You are hit with the beautiful rose scent, feeling almost as if you are walking through a rose garden, absolutely beautiful. As the perfume settles a slightly different floral smell comes through, although I feel it is still mainly roses, as the day goes by a sort of subtly musky smell develops but it still has the pretty rose fragrance.
The perfume is quite subtle there is nothing heavy or heady about it, I have to be careful what fragrance I use as I suffer from migranes that are brought on with a lot of perfumes. This one in particular has never caused me any problems!
The fragrance lasts most of the day I generally have an extra top up squirt through mid afternoon, this offers a real lift/pick me up.
I would recommend this perfume to any old fashioned traditional girly girl.
To my admittedly eccentric nose, some of the big name scents on the high street smell of a peculiar combination of chemicals and cats. Perhaps it's because I'm slightly asthmatic, but when a woman walks past me wearing some of the big name fragrances, it's more likely to make me sneeze than swoon.
I love scents that smell of real flowers and the outdoors. The problem is that up until now this has tended to put me in a fragrance bracket with women aged upwards of 80, who like purple packaging and lily of the valley. Finding scents that are youthful, modern and trendy, yet fresh - and have bottles that I wouldn't be embarrassed to put on my dresser - has been somewhat difficult.
Hence my delight at the advent of the Paul Smith Rose perfume. This is a scent that actually smells of roses- a kind of mixture of clean, crisp tea roses and the simpler but headier old-fashioned blooms. It's quintessentially feminine, but not in a modern Katie-Price-festooned-with-a-pink-boa way: it manages to be simultaneously sophisticated yet fresh, girly yet grown-up.
The packaging, too, is lovely, as you'd expect from any Paul Smith product - a simple, minimalist bottle with a practical heavy base contains a very delicately pink liqueur. It will look good on any dresser, and is likely to appeal strongly to professional women in their late 20s-40s. It comes in a cream cardboard box with a picture of a rose, making this an ideal romantic gift for a classy birthday, Christmas, or even Valentine's. The only downside is that at around £25 for a 50ml eau de toilette, you can't bathe in it.
I was given this perfume for my birthday by a friend who knows my love of all things pink. In fact I'm sure she only bought it because of the box. It displays a beautiful pink rose.
Rose is a fragrance by Paul Smith, the inspiration behind the perfume is the Paul Smith rose which was cultivated and given to him as a birthday gift by his wife.
Unlike some flowers no roses are actually crushed to produce this perfume. It is made by a technique called Scent Trek. This is where the rose is placed under a glass dome and the fragrance from the rose is extracted to make the perfume. The rose actually stays alive throughout the process.
The box as I said is very pretty, it has a plain off white background with the words "Paul Smith Rose " written in black letters down the side, there's also a picture of a gorgeous single pink rose.
The bottle is plain glass and is in a shape that actually reminds me of a vase. I'm not sure if this is intentional or just me. The same wording is on the glass that is on the box. It is topped by a silver lid. With small ridges running round it.
A nice touch is that the bottle is actually inside a sweet drawstring bag with roses on it.
Paul Smith Rose
Turkish Rose Oil
When I received this perfume I was a bit dubious to be honest. I do love floral scents but had never had a rose perfume before. But I gave it a try anyway.
The first thing that struck me when I sprayed this perfume is, as you would expect, rose. This is quite a strong rose smell too. The heart notes were not really detectable to me. The perfume is obviously floral but I'm afraid the rose overpowered everything else for me. The base notes were slightly more evident with a muskiness creeping through.
The perfume is described as "fresh and individual". Its certainly individual but as far as I'm concerned its not fresh.
I normally love strong fragrances but this one was just too overpowering. I started to feel a bit headachy after a while and the perfume is quite long lasting too.
I will wear the perfume for very short periods of time (when I meet my mate who bought it for me) but its definitely not one I would have chosen myself. Its just a bit too rosy for me.
Paul Smith Rose can be found in most department stores. The price is roughly £40.00 for a 50ml bottle, however you can find it for £24.99 on www.halfpriceperfumes.com.
I love very feminine perfumes and one of my favourite fragrances is Paul Smith's 'Rose' perfume. The first thing that originally attracted me to the fragrance was the box, which is a cool mix of vintage rose design and harsh black modern writing. I thought the box was very retro and snazzy and so thought I'd give the perfume itself a chance.
I tried it and loved it, so bought a 30ml bottle from the depnartment store I was in, although this is also available from perfume shops and online. For my 30ml I paid just under £20, but this is also available in 50ml and 100ml bottles for around £25 and £35 respectively, which I think is very good value, particularly for the 100ml size. The bottle in the box comes in a very cute drawstring bag with little roses printed on it, which I thought was very sweet and a nice touch. The perfume itself is a girly pale pink colour and comes in quite an understated bottle, which is good as I think a busier bottle, combined with the busy bottle and drawstring pouch would have been an overkill.
As the name suggests, the main fragrance note that's apparent when I first spray this onto my skin is a delicate, fresh and feminine rose scent, which is gorgeous to my nose! It is not old fashioned in the slightest, and I love the opening and main parts of the scent where rose is the strongest. As well as rose there were some other floral scents mixed in, but I couldn't pick them out - they do add to the mix though and make it a bit more complicated and nicer than just rose on it's own.
After having the perfume on for a few hours I could smell muskier scents coming through and this was a very nice end to the perfume, and gave it a sophisticated edge. The whole fragrance lasted about 5-6 hours on my skin, which wasn't bad at all considering how gorgeous the smell is. I can recommend this sweet smelling, rose-tastic perfume for lovers of rose scents and those who favour florals.
I must admit this is not the sort of perfume that I would immediately smell and buy. I tend to like fruitier perfumes and I also prefer heavy perfumes that are strong and linger all day.
Paul Smith Rose was actually a gift that somebody bought for me a few months back, I was intitially taken in by the packaging- a plain cream box with roses and the brand name written in thick black writing which I thought was very striking. The perfume also comes with a rose print fabric pouch which I thought was a nice touch.
Initially I was surprised with how much I liked the perfume. I have been prevously put off by rose scented perfumes as they usually smell cheap. This one certainly doesn't and is purely and simply Rose. I suppose if you don't like the smell of roses though you really won't like this perfume!
When wearing this perfume it is very light and in no way invasive. It isn't completely unnoticable though, as I have had compliments when wearing it.
One thing is that I wouldn't wear this perfume at night time. I would say it is best suited for wearing to work/school.
I actually received this perfume as a free sample from my lovely mother who has friends in high places (House of Fraser), so is always getting free samples for me to try.
I never really think of Paul Smith as a perfume brand, I always associate it with clothes, but now I have tried this fragrance I will definitely be buying it or casually mentioning it around birthday time.
I didn't see the bottle with my free tiny sample but after looking on the internet, it looks pretty basic but to be honest I like that and it does reflect the fragrance.
The cost of this obviously varies between retailers but at boots they list a 30ml bottle as £27.50, which I think is pretty reasonable. Not the cheapest but I would happily pay that for it.
The description of the fragrance from the boots website is this: "A rose by any other name might be something you'd expect...Paul Smith Rose is something altogether different. The fragrance is fresh and individual, modern and memorable. Based on the Paul Smith Rose, a potently fragrant, cochineal pink bloom, with a tight peony centre and full outer flower, the result is an airy, addictive, sensual scent."
I'm no perfume connoisseur, so have no idea about top notes and bottom notes, but describing the scent of this is very easy. Imagine sticking your nose right into a lovely pink rose and that is what you get from this scent. It's fresh, extremely floral and simply smells of roses. If you like the smell of roses then this is a perfume for you.
I have found that this perfume actually has staying power too. I am one of those people who can spray perfume on me and then in about 5 minutes my skin seems to suck it all up and the scent is gone, which I find terribly annoying, but with this I am sitting at my desk, still getting occasional lovely wafts of roses and I applied it at about 7.30 this morning (it's now 12 noon ish).
I love this scent, and am looking forward to owning a bottle after my free sample test. It's a simple fragrance that actually lasts. Simply smells like roses, and it's beautiful.
I found out about this scent when I was handed a sample whilst walking through my local shopping centre. I don't normally wear perfume so I was surprised to find myself interested in this one. It took me a while to find a shop that sold it, but when I saw the price tag I was put off a little. I know this isn't particularly expensive for a bittle of perfune but on a young person's budget, I couldn't quite stretch to it.
But this year when I went on holiday, I saw it being sold at the duty free shop, and persuaded some friends to buy it for me for my birthday.
Now I wear it every day and get multiple comments on how I smell! This fragrance is fresh, floral and feminine, suits any woman and matches any outfit.
Unfortunately the bottle is not so attractive, although fits in well on a dressing table. Eventually, it's the fragrance that counts and I believe it is a very good buy.
At the point of purchase there were so many different perfumes to choose from, all which came within close reach of this one. However Paul Smith Rose ended up being the favourite. Yes there was a lot of deliberation, and yes i would prefer to have that 'this is definitely the one' perfume which stands out above the rest, yet despite the negatives, this perfume is beautiful. Picture fairies dancing on dew covered, rich red rose petals and you will roughly have the scent of this perfume. It is so extremely light that it will not disrupt your day or make you feel uncomfortable. It blends into the summer breeze and refreshes even the darkest day. To this day I am yet to find a 'rose' scented product which actually smells of roses. Paul Smith has done the trick. It is genuine. It is the real thing. It is roses in a bottle. Not for a night out, but light enough for every day wear it is beautiful. Summer in a bottle.
I am not much of a perfume wearer, I tend to find most of them too heavy and they end up making me feel all claustaphobic and sickly.
I was so excited when I found this eau de parfum... the scent is pure rose and never wavers throughout the day. I ran around duty free trying to find my boyfriend to pay fo it... no where to be found!
I then found it on special offer in Boots. Its is so fresh and lifts my spirits when i have a little spritz. It is a really good price and you get loads... my one gripe would be that the bottle is so big and heavy I never want to take it away with me!
I rang my mum when i had bought it because the smell of pure roses always makes me think of her garden roses... turns out she had already bought it! (and loved it).
Lots of people comment when I wear it and always say how much it reminds them of something when they were young.
I have quite sensitive skin and have nver had any problems with this.
I'm pretty reluctant for other people to choose perfume for me, as regardless of whether i like it, i feel obliged to wear it whenever they are around me. Paul Smith's Rose was a Christmas gift from my boyfriend. The packaging is beautiful - inside the box, the bottle comes in a little drawstring bag with roses on the outside - it's very pretty and girly! Also ideal for keeping the bottle in - i'm not a big fan of big boxes. (There was also a rather more pricey option available, which comprised of a tall bottle of perfume with an actual rose inside!)
I was pleasantly surprised at how light and fresh the perfume smells. It has a day scent, encompassing the rose, yet in a modern day, airy way. The perfume actually came from the scent of a rose that Paul Smith's wife had cultivated especially for him - which adds a whole new level of romance to this lovely perfume!
The perfume is collected using a modern method called ScentTrek - rather than crushing and distilling the flower, it is instead placed in a glass bell, where is is inhaled by technology which analyses it's fragrance to recreate the smell. This apparently is able to replicate the scent exactly!
Overall, it's a light fragrance with subtle tones - and has become one of my favourites!
A delightful, light fragrance - my favourite for wearing during the day. I love the design of the packaging, it's no-nonsense Paul Smith font and delicate rose printed on a textured cream card box. The bottle is also simple yet attractive, the perfume a light pick colour and overall it makes a nice addition to my dressing table.
Of course, the scent itself is what really hooked me! I had always steered away from flowery perfumes, thinking that they made me smell soapy, musty or older than I am! This one, however is surprisingly light and fresh. It actually smells very natural - like a real rose, but with a slightly musky cederwood undertone giving it a slightly edgier feel. Perfect for me - too old for sweet scents, but not ready to carry off the full-on musky grown-up perfumes! It has very quickly become my everyday signature scent, but has the lovely ability to merge with your skin in such a way as to create a unique aroma for every woman who wears it.
