L'Artisan Drole de Rose

L'Artisan Drole de Rose

I wore Santa Maria Novella's Melograno today, my summer fragrance for the year and I just adored it all day however I was looking to test something new and different for tonight so I decided on L'Artisan's Drole de Rose.

The notes given for this by Luscious Cargo are roses and violets and iris and a powdery note which I believe is heliotrope. On my initial application I could smell the iris and rose right away but that was overshadowed by the heliotrope that seems incredibly sweet. Once the heliotrope dries down you are once again able to detect the rose and violets.

I like this fragrance but don't love it. I wish that the rose and violets were more predominant to the heliotrope. The staying power is fair but I felt I had to apply it heavily to really take in all of the fragrance.

I think this is a beautiful fragrance that I think anyone could pull of as an all day fragrance year round. I however would prefer to wear it as an evening fragrance in colder months on days to break away from my usual spice heavy fragrances.

Drole de Rose is sold through Luscious Cargo and retails for $75/1.7 oz. and $110/3.4 oz.

Another great review! I absolutely agree with you. I actually find FM Lipstick Rose to be similar, but with more predominant rose and violet. It is quite sexy, but hardly an everyday fragrance for me.
I haven't tried Lipstick Rose yet. I finally landed a sample and still haven't tested it!
