So sad, this has got to have been reformulated, it's so powdery and offensive to my nose compared to how i remember it 25 years ago, another unsniffed purchase mistake.

Red my entire review before judging the fragrance.I don't know if Ombre Rose has recently been reformulated or not. A couple of days ago I saw a bottle of Ombre Rose Eau de Cologne in a tall frost glass cylindrical bottle with a silver cap. Normally Ombre Rose has been sold in a cut glass bottle with a white cap as an Eau de Parfum. The two smell entirely different which is why I think the marked Eau de Cologne is a reformulation.The Eau de Cologne is metallic, cold and herbacious. It actually smells like a mans cologne. The Eau de Parfum is a warm, woody rose/ylang ylang/sandalwood concoction with a powdery finish. Treat the two as totally different fragrances. So here is my conclusion. The eau de parfum in the cut glass bottle with the white cap is a beautiful, soft, romantic perfume that is subtle enough to be worn to the office, and floral enough for a date. The eau de cologne in the cylindrical bottle with the silver cap is almost unisex and I think it would work very well on the right person, in warmer weather with smart casual clothing.

Too sweet. Smells like something an old woman would wear. Very claustrophobic scent as it is so overpowering. Emily Howard, from Little Britain would wear this in a effort to be 'more of a laydeeeee!!' I had to chuck the sample away I hated it so much.

It is the weirdest thing, I don't smell rose at all. It smells like sweet almond extract, plasticky, and a hint of baby tushie. I will stick to Nahema which is still my favorite rose in all the garden.

This smells like playdough on me... I have toilet cleaners that smell better than this. Definitely not for me. Have a nice day!

I think the embossed glass bottle is very pretty but I am not nearly as impressed with the juice it contains.On me it opens with a blast of aldehydes and not of the fizzy, airy variety but of the nail polish remover variety. I would never judge a perfume on it's opening alone because I have some favourites like Paloma Picasso where the drydown is so divine I can ignore the less than heavenly topnotes. This perfume however fails to change my mind and goes pretty quickly to a linear middle/base of flowers, powder and musk, nothing jarring and nothing if interest.I love rose and expected more of it from a perfume with it's name but I would be willing to overlook that if this perfume wasn't so boring.

My mom wore this in the '80s, and I really tried to like it then because I LOVED that gorgeous octagonal bottle. Fast-forward 20 years, they're selling it at Marshalls and I try it again. Still no go. I like soft, warm, powdery scents, and this one has some lovely and very feminine notes, but there is a strong peach note to it and it really is too sickly-sweet for me. I would like this scent a lot if it didn't have that syrupy canned-peach note that turns rather urine-like on my skin. Try before you buy!I give it 2 lippies because it is a very well-crafted scent, just not for me.

I was given this perfume about 15 years ago. It came from a young man ( now my son's father ) that worked at a local drug store. That is how we met. Anyway, they ( drugstore ) were selling this in the small black, canister type spray can. I can't say this scent is anything spectacular, but it does bring back memories. Overall, I wouldn't purchase this for myself, but would accept it as a gift - only.

I agree whole-heartedly with Magnificent- it does smell like "Lutece"- that's why I don't care for it. The rose really did get left in the shadows on this one. Much too musky on my skin as well.

It has a gorgeous bottle but it smells like a little old lady! Very powdery and feminine. Not for me.
