Une Folie de Rose
I had every intention to wear a peach fragrance today and was busy trying to decide between Maybe Baby or Floret when my hand somehow became possessed and sprayed me with YSL Rose Rnchantees. Since I was already wearing a rose fragrance I decided to sample a rose I hadn't tried before thus Une Folie de Rose by Les Parfums de Rosine.
The notes in Une Folie de Rose are bergamot, coriander, ylang-ylang, jasmine and tea-rose.
It starts off a sort of dry citrusy scent (you know when you buy tea which contains a few dried slices of orange or lemons in it - that's what I'm thinking of while smelling this) which is soon followed by the tea rose and spiced up by the coriander. After I've worn it for a while the jasmine and ylang-ylang finally came out changing the composition of the fragrance slightly. A really lovely tea rose and one I'd like to further explore.
I think that this fragrance would be beautifully worn year round from morning to evening. It's dramatic enough to be worn in cooler months where a very fresh rose fragrance might seem like too much yet not too dramatic where you'd stand out in warmer months. What I like about this is the fact that it is both citrusy and slightly spicy, such a unique fragrance!
