The newest addition to the A Dozen Roses line is Electron. It is described as “A shock to the senses…clean, fresh, fabulous”. Would I ever call it a shocking fragrance? No. It’s an inoffensive and pretty fragrance in a gorgeous bottle.
Electron opens with a bergamot green tea and melon-cucumber. It’s light, airy, watery, fresh. I get floral, no particular floral but I do get “petals”, fresh and green florals. The top fades rather quickly and the fruity rose middle becomes more prominent. The scent keeps a green crispness. The base is that inoffensive rose with a clean musk.
Electron is an updated rose for a younger generation in my opinion. It isn’t a mature or classic rose nor is it dark and sultry. This is a rose fragrance appropriate for a teenager. The closest fragrance I can compare it to is Tommy Hilfiger Tommy Girl.
Notes listed include green tea, violet leaves, cattleya orchid, rose absolute and neon musk (sounds dangerous).
Give Electron a try if you like fresh flowers or perfumes like Coach Poppy, Tommy Girl, DKNY Be Delicious, Creed Spring Flower, Alfred Sung Shi, Avon Cucumber Melon body products, Elizabeth Arden Green Tea, and/or Tocca Bianca. I see Electron as a feminine, youthful fragrance.
Projection is average to above average depending on how much you apply. Longevity is above average since these types of musks like to hang onto my skin.
A 3.4 oz bottle retails for $125 and is available at B-Glowing.
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – Cucumber melon floral. This one isn’t for me but I don’t feel I’m in its demographic. I really do find this to be a rose fit for the 15-20 year old crowd. It’s too “young” of a fragrance for me.
