The gold standard by which all rose perfumes may be judged, delicate, wistful, gossamer, and very lovely. I find it lighthearted in an almost childlike way, neither deep nor complex, and yet there seems to be a soaring quality about it that is emblematic of classical ballet or opera. More than anything it evokes to me the unforgettable cinematic version of that opera of all operas, Die Zauberflöte, so lovingly interpreted and immortalized on celluloid by Ingmar Bergman. Mozart is very difficult to capture on film, and should be virtually impossible to delineate in scent; precariously poised between the worldly and the unworldly, his music is a constant reminder that there is more to life than perhaps meets the eye. However, miraculously, it is also this quality which is the essence of the very aptly named Ombre Rose.

An old-fashioned, but very pretty, very very powdery, aldehydic floral scent. There are so many notes: fruits, flowers, woods, vanilla and spices. To me, though, it smells like powdery white rose, with real powder, and vanilla in the base. It's really nice. I think I'd rather smell it on someone else than myself. Aldehydes are no good to my nose when close up, but from afar is when I think they must work their magic.

Lovely, lovely!!! Very romantic, classy and feminine in a refined way. Unique and powdery fragrance. Not very popular and therefore an insider-tip!?!?! Hard to find in Germany. *Ombre Rose* smells a bit like *LUTECE by Houbigant*. If you can't find Ombre Rose try Lutece instead.
Have fun and enjoy fragrances!!!

I don't know exactly what to say about this one. It is a soft powdery-honeyed rose scent to me. Very feminine, but not that unique to me. Smells old fashioned, and pleasant. I personally, don't like any kind of rose scent, but at least, this isn't too pungent a rose scent, like alot of them are. Just okay...

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

Beautiful bottle. I was impressed with this scent. Sweet powdery rose with a kick - very romantic and feminine. I don't usually like such sweet fragrances but this one was very nice.
