I've worn this fragrance for years and I've never known anyone else who wears it. I loved it then and I still love it even though I haven't worn it much for several years, I think I just tired of it and wanted to try something new. On me this is a very beautiful, very powdery rose scent that's never overpowering or too much. And, the bottle is a very elegant match to this fragrance. I highly recommend this fragrance to anyone who likes a beautiful, elegant, and refined fragrance.

This was ubiquitous in the 80s, as I remembered when I first sniffed it. I really like it, though--rosey, at once honeyed and powdery. Reminds me of Teint de Neige, but rosier and not as cloying.

For the first hour the scent is smothered in powder. As the powderiness fades, a lovely, sparkling (fizzy! what a neat effect!), honeyed rose emerges--so pretty, but alas, still too powdery for me. Sweet and ladylike.

I got a great deal on this on drugstore.com, because I was going back to the classic scents I used to wear back in the late '80's and early '90's. Ombre Rose was my signature "office wear" scent. It smelled exactly the same now. A blast of baby powder first which wears off after a couple of minutes to a drydown of a honeyed rose (on me) and a spicy note too. My SO says it smells like a spicy baby powder and it does not irritate his allergies. Really gorgeous bottle too. I bought the 3.4 oz, so it should last awhile. I would buy again if drugstore.com keeps it in stock. I can't stand the fruit salad scents that is so prevalent now. I had to give away those to my nieces who loves them.

Lovely, demure fragrance! There is an initial strong alcohol smell ( I guess it's the aldehydes) but then the sweet rose with a slight powdery note emerges. I always associate rose fragrances with soft and romantic and this definitely falls within this category. It is ideal to wear either with a cashmere sweater on a cold day or with a long, boho dress ( or even a 50s full skirt) in the summer. I wouldn't call it "mature" but rather girly and flirtatious. Good lasting power and not too overwhelming to wear even during the day. Although, it is not spectacular, I would find a good use for a full bottle of this.

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