Careless Whisper by Geroge Michael.listen to that song with your eyes closed.feel those words, listen to the notes,hear that saxophone snaking throughout.then hear the end,that continues to linger in your head, this is the thing that could help you get what i see and understand why i love this fragrance.Une Rose is like a luscious rose liqueur from another world.rose and geranium is a classic for a reason,and the addition of honey feels completely natural.to my nose,the rose is paired with a slightly Metallic geranium note. geranium is so multi-facted that it can sometimes smell like roses.i don't get any icy or cold here at all.
Une Rose is rose soliflore there are some hints at fresh green notes,but it is always about the rose.it begins with thick beautiful red rose,sweet and glorious spicy and unexpectedly bright opening.it develops with a very subtle geranium support,and a little taste of wine.there is another note,it's the musk&honey coming together to create a warm note that's very inviting.the blend smells elegant and classy.i couldn't enough of that is an aromatic.a bewitching rose fragrance which is both unusual and effortless to wear. performance is great.
This is for the Rose and the Perfume fetishists - only grown ups allowed. Earthy, woody, uber luxurious and sensual. If Marlene D was still here this would follow her around mingling with her cigarette smoke.
I give this 3 and a half stars. For me, this starts out sharp. Intense. Overpowering geraniums, smother the rose, briefly. A slight wine tinge. The middle seems slightly woody, a bit earthy, as the rose mellows out. The base is lovely with a honeyed fruit, musky sweetened lipstick finish.
The star here is the rose that greets me right from the word "go!" A rich rose, not bright and a bit in the sombre side. This rose is not very smooth, it is on the crisp side of the rose spectrum. It is not really sweet on me, and whatever sweetness I get is more from the geranium that is developing in the background.
Later, further into the drydown, it turns greener and harsher. Added in is an earthy undertone that derives from the vetiver, and a patchouli-induced spiciness is growing stronger in the base. There is a touch of black Perigord truffle indeed evident towards the end, with the spiciness having a touch of a civet character not dissimilar to the spiciness in Creed's Orange Spice.
I get moderate sillage, excellent projection and a supreme thirteen hours of longevity on my skin.
A wintery scent with a nice rose, but the later makers are a bit too intrusively synthetic. Another rose-spice version, with a good rose though. Unfortunately, the other notes remain on the mediocre level only. Overall 2.75/5.
Meh, not for me. By way of explanation, cheap fake rose perfumes manufacture an artificial impression of rose by combining strawberry and honey. And Une Rose smells like berries and honey. If you believe the hype, they just so happen to use a very expensive rose essence that just happens to smell like strawberry and honey, but I'm not sure if I'm buying it.
