ROSE WEEK 2017 – A Tea Rose Soliflore
It’s Rose Week on EauMG! This is the annual celebration of rose-centric perfumes! This week I’m reviewing 6 fragrances that display a different aspect of rose perfumes.
Le Jardin Retrouvé is a French heritage brand of perfumes that was revived in 2016 by the original founder’s son and daughter-in-law. Before last year’s relaunch, Rose Trocadéro is the rose soliflore in the line that was previously known as Rose Thé. I mention this because my sampling notes of Rose Trocadéro read “TEA ROSE” . This is a classic, vintage rose soliflore that brings to mind cottage gardens, lace and dewy pink petals.
Rose Trocadéro opens as a fresh, fruity rose. Within the first few seconds, you immediately would label this fragrance as ROSE. In addition to the crisp, green rose, there’s a blackcurrant jam. For most of the wear, it wears as a fresh, green tea rose with a crisp white musk. There’s a French lavender sachet in the background. Overall, it’s a bright, cheery classic rose soliflore that reminds me of a perfumer’s interpretation of an English cottage garden.
Notes listed include blackcurrant, lavender, rose and musk. PERFUMER – Yuri Gutsatz
Give Rose Tracadéro a try if you like tea roses or bright, cheery rose soliflores. Or perfumes like Diptyque L’Ombre Dans L’Eau, Annick Goutal Rose Pompon, Balenciaga Rosabotanica, L’Erbolario Rosa and/or Jo Malone London Red Roses.
Projection and longevity are average.
The 4.2 oz set retails for $195 at Le Jardin Retrouvé. Refills and samples are also available for purchase.
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – Vintage tea rose. It’s one of those classic “cottage garden” roses.
