Just a super classic scent of roses that is super light and airy. Never overpowering.

So far, this is the best pure rose fragrance I have found. I love that it is light but I hate that I can't smell it after a short amount of time. I am extremely picky about fragrance and this is just lovely to me.

This perfume smells exactly like cold fresh roses just taken out of a florist's cooler. It's fresh, feminine and a very realistic red rose fragrance without that sour tone some rose scents can take on. I love this one!

I wore this New Year's Eve. It's such a sophisticated scent that lingers in the background and is not overpowering whatsoever. I am loving how back to basics jo Malone scents are. Would recommend

This is a nice, simple rose fragrance. It's lasts a long time and has good sillage. However on me, it is so similar to Perfumers Workshop Tea Rose that I can't see spending the money on this one. If you just like an occasional rose scent, grab the Perfumers Workshop version instead.

For a very rare occasion I do not like a rose fragrance. And even more painfully, I do not like a Jo Malone rose fragrance. I am quite in love with the limited edition Tudor Rose and Amber and especially in love with the permanent collection cologne intense in Velvet Rose and Oud. Red Roses is, however, a very stereotypical powdery rose, and it does hearken back to long ago fragrances, but it is so powdery that I personally just can't stomach it. The other two rose fragrances, I mentioned are wonderfully deep and dark (a favorite element of fragrances for me) and full-bodied without being cloying or headache-causing strong or sickly sweet or anything like that. If another element other than the rose floral in and of itself and the overabundance of powderiness is in red roses, it is an earthiness. But not in a musk or woodsiness, as is common in fragrances, or even earthiness in a botanical way, but an earthiness like soil. It literally smells like dirt on my skin. Of course, fragrances can and do read at least slightly differently on everyone due to body chemistry. So a free sample of this is recommended from a counter or online (2 free samples are given with every online order and Red Roses is one of the regularly offered fragrances in handful to pick your samples from), but I don't like it and would not purchase or get more samples of it.

I only have the sample size of this but as soon as I have a justifiable excuse to spend $120 for perfume, I'm buying it! A lot of reviewers say this smells like a "grandma rose scent" but I believe true rose lovers will appreciate the classic, no frills scent of pure red roses.

I really liked the smell of the Red Roses scent when I first sniffed in the shop - it was sweet and rosy; very much like 100% pure rose essential oil. However, after wearing the cologne for a few weeks, I realized that it smells strange on my body, almost like tiger balm with a cloying sweetness. I layer it with Jo Malone's Earl Grey & Cucumber cologne, which I adore! I will not be re-purchasing the Red Roses. I am thinking of trying the Earl Grey with Wild Fig next time. Can't wait!
