Le Labo Rose 31 Perfume Review

Le Labo Rose 31

ROSE WEEK 2019 – The Cedar Rose

It’s Rose Week on EauMG! This is the annual celebration of rose-centric perfumes! This week I’m reviewing 5 fragrances that display a different aspect of rose perfumes.

I’m always surprised when I hear or read reviews that Le Labo Rose 31 isn’t a rose. Because to me, it’s very much a rose! This brand is so popular that I smell at least three people on mass transit wearing a Le Labo product daily. If I smell something noticeably rose in public, then it is most likely the delicate sillage of Le… Continue reading | 6 Comments

ROSE WEEK 2019 – A Gourmand Rose

It’s Rose Week on EauMG! This is the annual celebration of rose-centric perfumes! This week I’m reviewing 5 fragrances that display a different aspect of rose perfumes.

I think because we’re all fatigued by “luxe” lines by designers. They come out with… Continue reading | 6 Comments

ROSE WEEK 2019  – A Coffee Rose 

It’s Rose Week on EauMG! This is the annual celebration of rose-centric perfumes! This week I’m reviewing 5 fragrances that display a different aspect of rose perfumes.

Pekji is an indie brand of perfumes based in Istanbul that is now available in the U.S. I should probably start out this review with a disclaimer that the perfumer was a friend of mine before he launched his brand.

Viktor & Rolf Magic Dancing Roses Perfume Review

ROSE WEEK 2019 – A Saffron Rose

It’s Rose Week on EauMG! This is the annual celebration of rose-centric perfumes! This week I’m reviewing 5 fragrances that display a different aspect of rose perfumes.

Viktor and Rolf Magic Dancing Roses is a fruity rose. Initially, I get a large swig of cherry-scented brandy. The opening is spiced with a leather-y undertone BUT it’s still airy, light and fruity. (and BOOZY because of that cherry). This is like a saffron rose shimmering in gossamer. The saffron and spice in this vaguely reminds me of things like Maison Francis Kurkdjian Baccarat Rouge
