PERFUME: Silver Roses
OFFICIAL DESCRIPTION: You have Silver Violets, now you have Silver Roses as well. I have a silver rose pin from the city of Hildesheim in Germany and that really popped into my head before Silver Violets did! Rose, of course, with spun sugar, vanilla, musk and magic. This one will be sticking around at least through St. Valentine's Day and perhaps beyond. Characteristics: Floral, vanilla, charming, scent locket, feminine, home scent, long lasting.
BEFORE I SMELL: This was a froppet from my recent order but I really wanted to try it. I had bad luck with some other sweet roses from Possets like Hathor: Roses and candy, clear as ice and as sweet to the nose as to the tongue. A simple confection of pink rose petals, simple syrup saturated with a sophisticated but delicious vanilla, and a wisp of musk to keep it going on your skin. Guys, I couldn’t stand this perfume AT ALL. Yes it is so bad that I have it in a special box so I will never smell it again! I don’t know which note doesn’t work on me and I thought that it would be the rose. I really want to find out so I can avoid this note in the future.
Another one that didn’t work on me was The romance of the Rose One of the most daring of the Valentine blends, this is a throughly insane pairing of rose and butter and sugar and a drop of light tea. It is one of the strangest and most confusing blends I have ever come up with and it works like mad. Sometimes you feel you have to rebel and run outside the ruts of slender convention, this fragrance is it.
Another Epic FAIL.
So, as you can guess I put it on with a little fear this morning!
FROM THE DECANT/BOTTLE: Sweet roses!
WET ON SKIN: Fresh cut red roses still and a hint of vanilla.
DRY DOWN: While I really like the fresh rosy top note, I love the dry down even more! It’s sugary and soft. The rose it’s there but not in your face. The musk and the vanilla make this light and wearable. The sugar here reminds me of a marshmallow!
If rose isn’t my enemy what ruined Hathor and the Romance of the Rose for me?
FINAL THOUGHTS: I really like this. Maybe I will get a bottle in the future.
