I don't get much leather out of Kelly Caleche so perhaps for that reason Rose Ikebana smells very similar to me. I like RI but not enough to plonk down the extra money for it. Maybe the materials...

I won't write a review on the scent, because I think everyone described it well and you have to smell fragrance yourself to figure out how you would perceive the scent. I want to talk about the...

Rose Ikebana is a light and airy rose. Starting with a citrus burst, the rose emerges soft and weightless, I also smell fresh rhubarb and a tea note. It is easy to wear, undemanding, uplifting, a...

Jean Claude Ellena is not called "The Nose" for nothing! I am not a rose perfume lover, per se, but this one is MAGNIFICENT! I handed the perfume sample to my mother who then waltzed around the...

On my second bottle of this....still in sticker shock in how much the price has gone up since my first purchase in Rome 2006. I paid $240 for this at the Hermes store in NYC. Alas, I am addicted to...

Super fresh green rose with pucker power! Very pretty, feminine and well balanced' after all it's Jean Claude Ellena. JCE's fragrances are ALWAYS well balanced and finished. He leaves no loose...

This is similar to Diptyque's L'Ombre Dans L'eau (based on their popular Baies candle of bulgarian rose and blackcurrant leaf), but Rose Ikebana is slightly rindier (like grapefruit or yuzu) and...

Its a light fresh sharp rose. Its very feminine and smells like cut roses to me not too heady and overpowering as some rose fragrances can be. Great for summer

Lovely scent all around: tart, floral and fresh, with a lovely tea background. Rose notes dominate-- but if you are frightened off by the powdery rose scents out there, don't worry! The rhubarb...

Lovely fruity rose tea scent. It's soft, dry and quiet. I don't smell any similarity between Rose Ikebana and Kelly Caleche. To my nose, Kelly Caleche is leathery but Rose Ikebana is not at all.
