Beautiful rose fragrance with excellent staying power. Smells just like Stella by Stella McCartney but at a fraction of the price.

This Rose scent sucked, It was so gross. So nasty, I threw it in the trash. Very strong, even my friends didnt like it. I actually gag when I smell it now. ive been looking for a good rose scent in my price range, and Woods of Windsor Rose is the best. This has a nasty, bitter, acrid undertone to it I do not like.

Top notes: violet, rose and green tea.
Heart notes:Turkish Rose and magnolia.
Base notes: Cedar and musk accords.

I think it's the green tea and cedar that stop this rose scent from becoming too powdery/old lady-like. It is a versatile scent which would suit most ages. Very easy to wear, I find it has moderate sillage and lasts for about half a day before I need a small top-up.

I've also realised that this perfume has slipped under the rader somewhat as none of my friends, family etc have ever owned a bottle although as soon as I wore it they all complimented it and asked what it was.


I'd shop around, in some places you can get a 100ml EDP bottle for around 20 on sale whereas typically it'd sell for 57.

The only thing I'm less than impressed with is the packaging. The bottle has a clean, simple which is fine as I believe it suits this uncomplicated perfume but I really don't like how heavy/bulky the bottle is.

I don't understand the raves here. To me, it is headache-inducing. It smells very generic like the cheap Playboy perfumes. It has no depth, the scent doesn't change but worst of all, it doesn't last. Stella by Stella McCartney is a much better rose scent. I agree with one of the reviews here saying that is a fresh, floral, fruity fragrance, not a true rose scent. You are better off buying the cheap Playboy perfumes.

Beautiful, beautiful rose scent!

Paul Smith Rose is a true rose scent (described in other reviews) but on me it reminded me of the Body Shop Moroccan Rose. I love the smell of the Moroccan Rose shower gel and body butter, but the perfume was awful. This one is perfect for layering with my shower gel and body butter.

Even on it's own it is a beautiful fragrance - not too overpowering, not sugary sweet, long lasting and soft enough to wear to work without being offensive.

But I think the biggest plus for me is that this fragrance is not readily available in Australia. I tried 8 different department stores over 3 cities and none of them had it in stock. Some people had never even heard of it!

Yessss! I finally found true rose scent!!!

It's hard to find pure rose scent nowadays but Paul Smith Rose is fresh,true rose petal,lovely,no musk,no spice,no powder,no soap,but a little green.

This is the masterpiece of naturally rose scent,without synthetic.I can inhale deeply like it's rose soliflore.

Rose in a bottle,well done!

OMG, this is my newest perfume obsession! I love it so much I wear it even when i'm not going out..I love smelling myself with this on :) I'm not good at describing perfume at all, i might say this perfume is great, some might disagree. Unlike one of the reviewer before me, I gotta say this is probably the closest to the real rose smelled perfume out there. I love rose perfume, and I don't really care if it makes me smell like an old lady or not because rose is classy and timeless. I love my Crabtree and Evelyn Rosewater Eau Fraiche because for me it smells exactly like rose, but it has no staying power at all..The other day i was about to purchase Rumeur by Lanvin but when I saw this on the display I really wanted to try it (the SA was not there so I couldnt try it) but finally, while still holding rumeur on my hand, i tried this on the paper thingy. I instantly put down my rumeur and brought this to the cashier instead. It's very expensive in Asia cost about US$120 (damn expensive right) but I fell for it the second I smelled it. It makes me smells like roses and the first day I wore it to school, my friends and teachers were literally trying to find the scent and smelling me, lol..I'm not a big fan of the bottle though..too simple for such an extraordinary product, plus it's a freaking heavy glass bottle for me to carry around in my purse and I don't know on others but this doesn't last longer than 4 or 5 hours tops..my body has this weird habit of vanishing scents, they're just gone (the only ones that last were cool water, lancome miracle and tbs white musk perfume oil) Would i repurchase? YES in a heartbeat! expensive, damn it is..but it's something that will make u want to smell ur own body all the time, it doesn't give you a headache like some other perfumes because it's so light, airy and beautiful. Try it, if it works with ur pheromones then u're lucky!

Spotted this perfume at the department store a while back and thought I would give it a spritz. Fell in love with this edgy but feminine fragrance straight away. Decent price for a simple but long-lasting perfume. Would definitely purchase again! xx

I've always been impressed with Paul Smith fragrances and i'm really surprised Paul Smith Rose did not make it to the United States. Obviously, it's a rose scent. A very nice rose scent that has a very nice note of green tea. I could detect the tea note when i first sprayed it on. Staying power is exceptional and it gives great sillage. I was in a hamburger/hotdog place yesterday and i went up to the counter to place my order. I walked around the restaurant for a couple of minutes and then went back up to pick up my order and i could still smell the fragrance lingering around the counter area i was just standing at. I like the bottle too. It has a nice cool, sleek look to it.

When I smelled this perfume for the 1st time I was expecting a really "grandma" kinda rose smell, but I was really surprised when the scent was really warm and fresh...with a note of lemon? Staying power is great, like this perfume alot!!!
Got summer edition already....
