I'm with the Kuwaiti princess on this one! Madini Rose is a lovely, realistic rose that doesn't become too powdery or sour, as some rose fragrances do. There is an underlying warmth to it that I like too.
This is a dark pink rose blooming in the sunshine. Very nice!
I love Aveda fragrances and especially that typical "Aveda smell" - which is mostly rose oil. Well there is a lot of Aveda in this Madini Rose oil. There is also a predominant powder note. Those two aspects of this oil in and of themselves often make a rose attar oil PERFECTION for me, but somehow the tartness of the "aveda" note and the powderiness of the rose (like grandma used to wear) do not go together and in fact CLASH and create a sharp tangy mess - like they also squeezed some sour lemon juice into ti. Very soapy, tangy and ultimately rather repulsive.
