Rebel + Mercury Royal Couple EDP Natural Perfume Review

Rebel Mercury Royal Couple

In the world of perfume, rose is known as the “Queen” and jasmine is known as the “King”. Rebel + Mercury married the two during a coronation ceremony and now we have the Royal Couple.

Royal Couple opens with a juicy, effervescent grapefruit. Two roses appear…one with a naturally fruity presence and another with a hint of mint. Suddenly I feel a cocktail inspiration – grapefruit, rosewater, gin and mint sprigs. Doesn’t that sound good? The dry-down of Royal Couple is surprisingly funky. It’s animalic and earthy, very sensual. I get a spiced orris and ancient resins and only traces of the rose and jasmine.

Notes listed include white grapefruit, Bulgarian rose, Russian rose, jasmine, orris and cognac.

Give Royal Couple a try if you like rose fragrances. Or if you like perfumes like Aftelier Candide, Esscentual Alchemy Kama, Anu Essentials Sita and/or Providence Perfume Co. Rose Boheme. Royal Couple is unisex and like many naturals I find that it “transforms” to the wearer. It will wear differently on different people.

I find that projection is average and longevity is above average, especially for a natural perfume.

Royal Couple comes in a few sizes with the 1 oz retailing for $125 at Rebel + Mercury. Samples are also available for purchase.

Victoria’s Final EauPINIONA marriage of rose and jasmine. One to try if you like natural florals.
