Recently I have been on the hunt for the perfect rose scented perfume. After having been given the delightful Jo Malone’s Velvet Rose & Oud Cologne for Xmas by my wonderful husband, I decided to search for a fresher rose scent for Spring/Summer. Still searching…
After much research I did finally buy Le Labo Rose 31 from Libertys, which I do like but it still has a whiff of masculinity about it. Initial spray reminds me of the Acqua Di Palma scents and then it settles down into it’s own. Not much lasting power on my skin unfortunately.
My obsession with Diptyque perfumes is beyond ridiculous due to a love/hate relationship with them. Initially I love them and then 20 minutes later, not so keen. Maybe I’ll give this rose scent another chance.
Two invaluable websites I turn to are http://www.nstperfume.com and http://www.fragrantica.com for when I can’t just dive into Liberty and smell their wonderful perfumes. Two perfume blogs that keep up to date with the latest fragrance releases, offer in depth reviews and will even source a perfume for you depending on your taste. Fabulous!
Next on my list to try are Serge Lutens Sa Majeste La Rose and Rose De Nuit, By Kilian Rose Oud and Annick Goutal Rose Absolue.
Would love to know if you have any favourite floral perfumes!
