The crown of Yves Rocher's creations together with the regular vintage ISPAHAN. I sniffed it in a newly opened YR shop in Belarus about a decade ago, just when we started to embrace all things western businesswise, and I dreamed, and dreamed, and dreamed for days, months and years of owning it and to be able to spray it on an early sunday morning wearing a soft white or pink angora cardigan while drinking hot steaming tea and looking at the runrise through huge wndows overlooking a blossoming garden! I wanted so much to be that happy grownup woman who has it all, and by all I mean Rose Ispahan as nr. 1 on the list! more than 10 years later - I still don't feel grownup, but there's a bottle of this perfume in its extrait version sitting on my dresser, and I start learning to embrace life the way I thought I would have at this age: I am learning to feel content and search for happiness from inside, rather than looking for a source of it elsewhere, and Rose ispahan is just the best catalyzer for the process! The only true "rose" rose fragrance - pure rose scent, unspoiled by any oher competing florals (if they are there - they don't intefere) with a hint of musk and white chocolate or white rum or something. I hadn't smelled enything similar before and I haven't found anything comparable after: it is indeed very unique, extremely feminine, strong and yet not overpowering and so oh so soft!!! It is like a halo that floats around. I am in love with it and have been for many years. Hunting down every pure perfume bottle I spot on ebay and will never stop wanting more! Even the EDT version is strong enough to last for hours, and the packaging is just so beautiful, especially the matte glass of the bottle! - it actually visulally depicts the scent's auralike qualities! There was a time, when the purpose of creating a scent was producing something SPECIAL, unlike other perfumes, something distinct, something making a woman feel like she's the only one wearing it. And this is that kind. If you get hold of it ( discontinued years ago, so doesn't make a frequent appearance ) - take a chance on it: just for its uniqueness it deserves to be worn at least once in a lifetime.

Oh, how can I put this in words? Rose Ispahan is the scent of an luxurious chocolate-rose praline. Smells nichey+expensive. A work of perfume-art! Sadly hard to find today! Reminds me *A LOT* of Les Parfums de Rosine "Rose Praline". BUT Rose Ispahan smells even better - How is that even possible? Amazing Amzing Rose Ispahan! AND! Look at this gorgeous golden bottle. Isn't that a beauty in any perfume-collection? I have 2 bottles. If I stumble upon a 3'rd or 4'th, I will get it - because I want & need this in my life! LOVE!

Ah, I didn't get the boozy amber, which is a pity, because Ambre Russe is one of my favorite scents. I got an onset of rose, vanilla and something like melon. Don't ask. It was almost like a lightly scented soap. Is there carnation in this? There's definitely clean musk. It dries down soft and clean and non-offensive, but the personality everyone else was lucky enough to get didn't show up on my skin. I'm sad, because boozy is such a fun note for scent!

This one's a little sweet in a rich honeyed way, so I mostly wear it for evening. I smell rose & amber, and vanilla. The amber here is like Ambre Russe, smooth, rich & boozy.. I really like this scent, it's deep & sexy, and the sweetness mellows out when it melts in, it becomes more dusky.

I'm so sad this fragrance has been discontinued. I love the warmth of the fragrance and the bottle design is charming.

Overall, a pretty yummy scent. I love a good rose and a good vanilla. This starts off as ambery and vanilla with a touch of rose. However, the middle notes seem to contain something dusty like sandalwood, which I hate. It's not too strong though, and it's still ambery enough to be bareable.
The staying powder isnt' too great though.

Its too bad this fragrance is no longer offered at Yves Rocher because its one of my favorites. A very nice rose/powder scent, delicate and feminine. Its not something I like to wear all the time but when Im in the mood nothing else will do.

This one really brings back memories. I used to steal the bottle from my mom, who's been buying YR products ever since I was a teenager. A lot of people mistakenly reviewed this under "Ispahan," which was a completely different fragrance. R. I. was in a golden-ambery-red bottle/box, while Ispahan was in a blue/black bottle and box. R. I. was a potent oriental mix of rose, vanilla and amber. It was definitely for night-time wear only, as both Ispahan fragrances announced themselves before the person wearing them ever appeared. This is not something I'd wear again, but for nostalgic value alone it deserves the 3 lippies.
