Spring has slowly started to show its happy face in this part of the world and for some reason, my reptilian brain says ‘bring fresh rose’ to me. Be it Roseberry then, something much more airy than rose+berries suggests. True rose lovers may not be impressed with its lightweight performance, and perhaps I love it so much for all the ‘wrong’ reasons. For one thing, it has nothing of the mystical, ‘deep’ quality of the big, sultry roses. To the contrary, fizzy aldehydes and chamomile make it clean and even soapy for me right from the beginning. (It doesn’t smell like some tired rose soap; it’s just some soapy rose) The heart brings out a slightly sweeter rose and raspberries. I can’t sense a particular drydown here; the scent just fades and perhaps becomes a bit ozonic or sheer on my skin – I get that ozone note with some other Rosines but surprisingly it's not disturbing me. On my skin, Roseberry projects well but the lasting power is meek. Still, I enjoy dabbing it in small doses rather than bathing in it (as I do with most of my fragrances) I’m giving Roseberry a 5 not because this is the most complete, quality or complex fragrance, but I really love wearing it and it makes me happy. I think it’s a great fragrance for befriending rose notes, too.

I picked this one up because I love the pretty frosted bottles. Roseberry by Rosine is a very bright, fizzy, clean floral. I really liked it but was very disappointed in the lasting power. After wearing it on my wrist for 2 hours, it had completely disappeared. Literally no silliage for the price :(

Very nice for a rose frangrance, much greener and less powdery. Nice and fresh. My husband really likes it

Greener, and fizzier with aldehydes than I was expecting. Dries down to a light sweet rose, not particularly fruity. Pleasant, but there's something "slight" about it--nothing compelling.

This is a very feminine and soft rose perfume. Unlike some reviewers I do not find this to be harsh at all. Upon application the berry note is quite present which would lead one to believe that this fragrance is too sweet; however when the fragrance is allowed to settle down it is soft and really puts me in a good mood. The product description classifies this as a good mood fragrance and true to word. The fragrance really puts and extra spring in my step when I wear it. Unlike many rose perfumes it does not have a powdery drydown so one does not get this whiff of staleness as the day goes along which is sometimes very prevalent with rose scents. This also has very good lasting power on me. I only apply once daily.

This is a very well done perfume, but its just too fruity for me, When I wear it i end up with very little rose and a lot of berry and as there are so many other rosine perfumes to try I will finish my sample but I won't purchase a full size bottle. Someone who loves a berry/rose combination should love this, I am just beginning to realise that I am not a big fan of fragrances where fruit dominates.

Of the Rosines I've tried, Roseberry is the most generic perfume imo. I guess that's the berries. I'm not a great fan of berries in scents. It's okay, and I can see a lot of people liking it, but it doesn't rock my world.

Okay, I'm not sampling any more perfumes from this line. This is perhaps the only one I'd consider wearing, but it still reeks a bit of Glade air freshener on me. I blame the berry...most fruit/florals don't smell right on me. My mom loves the scent though -it works much better with her skin chemistry. My bottle is now at home on her dresser :D

This is another interesting rose-based scent from Les Parfums de Rosine. Roseberry starts off quite green but then, almost immediately, the fruity notes take over. I find the blackcurrant note slightly too strong for my liking - giving the scent a sour quality for the first hour - and I think there is also some raspberry in the blend. Ultimately this scent is too fruity for my liking, although I like it better when the fruity notes have faded, leaving a rose-tinged musk.

This one suprised me by being even nicer than I would have expected. If you poured a little dash of blackcurrant-juice in a bowl of chilled raspberryjuice and added delicious rosewater, the melange would smell like this. It is deeper and more sexy than I would have expected - but without any musky or oriental notes. It is just rose with ripe red fruit - perfectly balanced. And it is moodlifting and refreshing, too. There is nothing sharp in it and no perfumey, oldfashioned "typical rose"-scent. Juicy, redblooded, full of life and contagiously positive - without the lack of depth those perfumes usually show. Like a deep kiss hidden between a raspberry hedge and a wild rosebush.

An extremely lovely green, and sharp rose scent. I find this one to be a bit similar to Diptyque's L'Ombre dans L'Eau, but not quite as green / leafy.
The aldehydes in this (to me) are not that pronounced. I love this fragrance and it is haunting in cool, damp weather. I wore it last fall and fell in love with it. Red, red roses with a hint of sharp raspberry and lots of green leaves and stems. This is my favorite Rosine so far.

I received a little sample of this when ordering a decant of Zeste de Rosine, and I bless the day. I completely adore it. The rose is in the shadows of fresh notes of green, along with wisps of white florals. To my nose, it reminds me of a garden party with fresh rose petal tea and sweet petit fours. I vastly prefer it over the Zeste, which dried down to a powder on me. The Roseberry never even changes, but sustains the notes for several hours.

This fragrance is so pretty! I get a quick burst of black currant and rose, then the fragrance settles into a mixture of green (from the raspberry leaf) and sandalwood with a hint of rose lingering all day. This fragrance lasts about 9 hours on me, which makes is a great buy.

A sweet infusion of rose, fruits and aldehydes. This has the sparkling quality that many look for in spring/summer scents. I, for one, am not a huge fan of these type of fragrances, but this one isn't terrible. It's also not a terribly sweet fragrance, but enough so that it should make those who love fruity scents happy. Rather nice, just not for me.

I am the only one who loves this fragrance? Ok, I'll be the "alma de cántaro" and give it 4 lipsticks :0)
On my skin it's lovely!! A light and tender combination of rose, iris and a hint of berries (almost unremarkable). A soft, fresh and lovely rose!

Soapy roses. Roseberry is decent, especially if you like the idea of a "clean" rose scent, but nothing outstanding. It reminds me a lot of Tiare and Le Jasmin from Chantecaille, not really because they smell similar, but because they're all a little on the sharp and artificial side. I barely detect any berry at all, so if you're looking for a fruity rose you might have more luck with Rose d'Ete.

A very light rose with hints of berries, the aldehydes give it a somewhat powdery edge dulling the fresh scent. The camomile softens the scent wonderfully giving it that "your skin or better" scent quality. Quite unoffensive as rose scents go. I thought this would be the scent I would most be likely to love, but it leaves me indifferent.

I agree with the other reviewers here that this is a rare misstep from Rosine. Someone else here mentioned it as aldehydic and while I still don't claim to totally understand the morphing power of aldehydes in scents, I can tell you that this scent, on my chemistry, is very soapy and old lady-ish. It is nothing special - smells like something from Crabtree and Evelyn or a body spray from B&BW. Not multi-star worthy like much of the rest of the Rosine line. Glad I sampled before buying because I'll be passing on a full bottle of this.

Aldehydes - Roseberry is the one Rosine with a serious case of them. I normally don't mind aldehydic fragrances, but for some reason the aldehydes in Roseberry don't appeal to me. I can only chalk this up to another case of bad skin chemistry since from the reviews this is a potentially beautiful fragrance on other people. Just not on me. It was a harsh, ill defined scent which was dominated by aldehydes, camomile, crisp leaves and rose. And the seductive promise of berries which caused me to buy it unsniffed? I only get a faint hint of them after I've been wearing it for about four hours. Live, apparently don't learn and place fragrances in 'mistakes' closet.

This wasn't a bad scent, but there is nothing original about it. A light rose with a hint of berry to it. Overdone and boring. It faded on me within minutes too.
