Rose Week 2015
A few weeks I reviewed Ramón Béjar Magnum Iris which is a really good iris. This perfume put this new brand on my radar. Being that it’s Rose Week, it seems natural to review Celestial Rose, a rose soliflore.
Celestial Rose opens as a fruity rose. It’s like peachy aldehdyes and the richest, red rose. The heart is a luscious rose that is almost chewy. It’s like velvety rose petals and apricot fruit leather. There’s a hint of dry, dusty spices. Celestial Rose dries down to a dry rose and resinous amber.
Really reviewing this one was difficult because all I want to say about this perfume is that it smells really expensive. This is like a luxurious, high-quality rose soliflore. It’s gorgeous.
Notes listed include artemisia, bergamot, davana, Turkish rose oil, Egyptian geranium, peach, Turkish rose, musk and amber. Launched in 2014.
Projection and longevity are above average.
The 2.55 oz spray retails for $295 at Osswald.
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – Velvety, luxurious rose soliflore. I love it. I think I may like it even better than M. Micallef Rose Extreme (which is saying a lot because I love that one). And this Ramón Bejár one is cheaper (believe it or not).
