Rose Opulente

Today I'm wearing Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier's Rose Opulente. It is a mixture of Moroccan and Turkish roses.
Aedes lists the notes in this as:

Top: Roses, leafy green
Middle: Jasmine, ylang-ylang, clove
bottom: Musk, ambergris, sandalwood.

I had tested this once last winter and it didn't make me swoon. However in warmer weather this really bursts. It starts of an incredible bouquet of roses with lush greenery. It's really beautiful and then the clove and bottom notes slowly arise which making it even more beautiful and unique.

I am so glad that I waited to test this fragrance in warmer weather - this is one I'd love in my collection. This could easily be worn as a morning to evening fragrance.

It retails for $145-$150/3.4 oz. and is sold at Aedes, Beautyhabit and Lusciouscargo.

I love your description of roses for warm weather -- I have some of this, must go try. Now.

I tried that at Bendels last year. It is very pretty!
I'm really glad that I tested this one again in warmer weather!
