Incerdible how roses can smell different... the fragrance market is flooded with rose based scents, but each and everyone is different.
In this case, forget the deep dark and decadent SL Rose de Nuit, forget the uber joyful and sweet FM Lipstick Rose, forget the romantics but powerful violet-rose of Paris ..
Millet et une Roses is a very light and refreshing rose.
You an smell an interesting citrus and green tea note, even if it does not apprear in the notes -I was reminded of my beloved Aroma Tonic by Lancome that was issued the same year - and a soft rose accord.
it is very very fresh and, regretfully, has not a huge sillage (=Stays very close to skin); for that matter, being not huge and non invasive, it is an ideal frag for office wear.
I regret it is so thin....and the very poor lasting power.
Iliek this fragracne , however due to it's fleeting-ness ad lack of silage, it is the one I probably like less in the series.. that said, it is a good fragrance in any case, an interesting rose to try.
Beautiful bottle, like the ones of the Collection series, although I do not get why the juice is colored is light blue: does not match at all w/ the frag (Roses = pink!) and reminds me of some liquid window cleanser: nothing major, but a blue perfume is just weird to me.
notes as per Osmoz.
top notes Ambrette Seed
heart note Damascus Rose
base note Ambroxan

It came in a 15ml dab bottle, part of the La Collection box set. First dab - smells familiar, but v weak. Second dab, still weak, third dab, makes no difference...
It's so weak that I could dab myself 20+ times and I still won't be able to smell it unless my nose is within a centimeter radius of the dabbed spot. I poured it into a atomizer and hope the larger dispensed dosage would make it work. It helps a little, but still far from enough. The smell is that of a v diluted lemon tea scent. Much like the second round lemon tea one makes with a spent teabag and a much trampled slice of lemon.
My advice is: don't waste your pretty pennies on this. If you like this but is just as disappointed as I am with the strength, get Malabah by Penhaligon's. Even Malabah's body lotion has a stronger scent. This EDP is a great disappointment.

I might buy it if I could smell it. Why , it's not even at Lancome counters here in San Antonio. Why the mystery?. C'mon. I would love to smell the roses if I could find them.

I got a tiny (1oz?) bottle of this from Fragrance.net and am loving it. It doesn't smell strongly of roses, which is a plus for me. Goes on light and becomes a lovely, clean, close-to-the-skin scent. I just wish it lasted longer. Unfortunately it's usually gone by lunch time. This and Michael Kohrs Island Hawaii, another "skin" scent, are my go-to perfumes this summer. EDIT 2/10 I realized finally that this actually DOES smell JUST like roses, just the real thing -- straight out of the garden -- and not your usual artificial perfumey rose smell, which I had grown unpleasantly accustomed to. I can wear this all year long, and I think maybe the staying power is better in the winter.

Perhaps my olfactory equipment has been blunted by the constant, full frontal assault of Alien and Fracas. Having been bazooka-ed numb, I am obviously not smelling very much of this supposedly complex, niche-quality concoction. I do get the melodic, if much-too-mellow sweetness of honeyed roses; if something else is supposed be there, it's lost on me. I need my perfume to announce my presence, so Mille doesn't quite cut it with her supremely gentle and genteel ways. Pardon me while I generalize her to death ► She is more suited to the utterly feminine, someone who shies away from the limelight, someone who minds her Ps and Qs fastidiously. Mille is prim, conventional, safe and (sorry, fans) rather insipid. I very much want to like her, having read all the rave reviews, but her diaphanous character gets obliterated by the pervasive presence of Habanita, whom I chill to and kick it with. I don't mind clean and crisp, but I'm not crazy about the subtlety of sotto voce.

Got this in a great swap. I'm not normally crazy about rose juice - I think we've all had the "Tea Rose" experience at one time or another - but I really like this stuff. It has a depth and complexity that appeals. I probably won't buy another bottle because this one will last for years. Don't fear the rose!!!

Mille et Une Roses is a lovely scent. Someone sent me a sample of it otherwise I doubt I would have sought it out for testing. It is the softest, sweetest, sheerest rose fragrance that dries down to a shimmer of a skin scent on me. It has a bit of a woodsy quality, too, but it doesn't go harsh on me and then glom over the whole composition as many woods accords often do on my skin. Perhaps that's the amber and I'm just reading it as woodsy. Unfortunately, it doesn't last very long - it's quite short lived for an edp. I currently have rose scents that I like, so I doubt I'll be lemming a bottle of this, but if I received one as a gift I would be very pleased to wear it. Probably would go through an entire bottle in no time with constant re-spritzing.

I have a decant of this; I really doubt I'd ever spring for the big bottle, especially considering the cost. I gather from reading about perfume that rose scents are difficult to do, and I think on my skin (which amplifies sourness) they're harder. So I'm pretty impressed that this scent manages to smell like real rose petals about half the time I'm wearing it. The other half, eh, it's your standard rose oil scent, not bad, very pretty. Wish I could give it a 3.5.

I own the orginal 2000 et une roses in the beautiful teardrop bottle. This perfume is the exact same scent, with the exception of the shape of the bottle and the price. When the original came out, I bought two at $50 each. Now it's $125 and it doesn't come in the gorgeous one of a kind teardrop bottle. When Lancome relaunched it, I bought two thinking they would pull the same thing again - make it limited edition and discontinue it. Now I have two and spent $250 to get them. The good news is that I love the fragrance! The warmth of the scent of rose, vanilla, musk and amber is beautiful. Some say that Stella McCartney's Stella smells similar. I have never smelled it and don't see a need. This is an absolutely perfect blend. It is romantic without being old-fashioned, and very much worth trying.

Received this from a swap recently. I LOVE it to bits. I even headed to Harrods to buy an extra bottle so I will never run out of this...I hope!
This is a really old romantic rose which IS sort of granny in a way, but who cares if you love rose scents! It lasts pretty long on me!

All I can is that this fragrance spoke to me the minute I smelled it at the Nordstrom Lancome counter. That may sound odd to some but it had me perplexed for a while...I kept sniffing and breathing the scent in...I realized a bit later that this scent took me back 17 years to a completely different fragrance that smells almost exactly like mille et une roses. I cannot remember the name of the other fragrance and it was a fragrance oil by the way. I asked how much mille et une roses sells for and WOW $125.00!! But I felt like treating myself that day so I went ahead and bought it. I thought it a rare find to have a scent bring me back like that. Got me thinking of old times also.
Now what I wish for that would make it even better besides a lower price? It lasting longer on me. I find this fragrance wears off too soon : (

There's nothing wildly original about Mille et Une Roses, but who cares? To smell it is to bury your nose in a pile of silky red rose petals. It has a citrusy opening and an ambery base, with roses, roses, roses in between. Sometimes I just want a pure rose fix, and this is where I get it.

Honestly, I don't see what all the hype is about this scent. It's a nice rose scent, but there are nicer ones. Personally, I prefer Stella for a rose scent. And Mille et Une Roses is absolutely exorbitantly priced - I don't see how it's worth it.

Opening scene: you're eating vanilla ice cream, and the table has a bouquet of silk (in other words, high-quality fake) roses on it. Drydown: now it's a bunch of plastic roses, and instead of ice cream, you're trying to choke down a glass of sour milk. This is why we sample first.

I owned the orginal 2000 et une roses & this is indeed the same,with the exception of the bottle. It is euphoric. Some say that Stella McCartney smells similar. I beg to differ. It lacks the depth,staying power & nirvana of Mille. What does piss me off is that Lancome raised the price 70 dollars. I bought the original for 55. When I saw they had raised it to 125.00 I about had a coronary. Price aside,it is unique & fabulous.

This scent makes me wish I had $125 to spend on perfume. Unfortunately, SAs are not allowed to give sample vials of this one, but I was able to try it on. On me, the top note (yes, one note) was voluptuous red roses in full bloom. I could not detect any other notes. After about 15 minutes, this round, striking scent receded into the ever-so-slightly-green, freshly cut rosebuds of the heart. The base was all spiced amber, with hardly any rose at all. It is gloriously romantic without being old-fashioned or stuffy--or particularly sexy, for that matter. If I were getting married anytime soon, I would probably splurge on it as my wedding day scent. ****UPDATE**** Okay, so it's been a couple of years, and I'm still crazy about this scent. (I did wind up getting a sample vial from the SA.) I've tried a lot of rose scents, but I haven't been able to find another whose rose note strikes the right balance between abstraction and realism. This is my HG rose scent, and I've finally ordered it! BTW, this one is not sold in the US. You won't find it at Lancome counters here.

Fabulous, heavenly, magical. I love this scent! I liked the original, and this seems the same save for the different bottle. This is my HG scent-a classic, signature scent, one which I never tire of. Get endless compliments on this.

Absolutely beautiful rose scent for any age woman! elegant, soft, and sophisticated! I love it!!!

This is the re-released EDP previously named "2000 et Une Roses" by Lancome. A few people have mentioned that they think this smells slightly different than the original, so I'm "re-releasing" it here on MUA :) The new release is supposed to be exactly the same as the previous one except you won't be getting the coveted teardrop bottle. This fragrance has been made a part of "La Collection," so it has the standard boxy glass bottle now. According to the website, this is "an amber foral fragrance composed in 2000, creates the perfect harmony between Absolute Damascus Rose, Ambroxan, and Seed of Ambrette". On me, this smells completely devine. I love roses, but typically not rose fragrances that are too flowery. This is much warmer than your average floral due to the amber and I love it so much I wore it on my wedding day this past summer. I do actually have a complaint about the staying power which, on me at least, is not too terribly long. There's nothing wrong with subtlety though and even with its faintness towards the end of the day, this is one of my most complimented fragrances.
