Une Folie de Rose

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!

Une Folie de Rose retails for $98/3.4 oz at Aedes or $77/1.7 oz and $100/3.4 oz. at Luscious Cargo.

S, I tune in every day for your fragrance reviews ... and love the review of the one today. Can't wait to try this one, too. I mean, just 'cause we don't share anime or celebs ... we'll always have 'fume.
Oh, so happy to read this review, as Une Folie is another sample suffering the fate of neglect. There are just too many things I must sample first. Thank you for a great review and inspiration.
I expected this to be a lot more floral. While it's nice, I really can't envision myself wearing it.
