Parfums de Rosine has an entire collection of Ballerina perfumes and from this title you can probably guess that now the collection consists of four perfumes. And since this Parfums de Rosine, all of the perfumes are centered around roses. From the flowers to its tutu, the entire theme of Parfums de Rosine Ballerina No. 4 is “white”.
Ballerina No. 4 is a white floral that is heavy with the rose. The opening is bergamot with a spiced, peppery rose. Within a few minutes, this rose wears as green, fresh. I said this was a white floral and it is is! This is when the peachy tuberose appears. The tuberose is cool, minty and heady. Underneath I pick up on something warm and nutty paired with fresh peaches. As it dries down, the fragrance becomes more powdery, like a jasmine talcum powder. The rest of the wear is a powdery amber and oak moss.
Ballerina No. 4 smells like the sort of perfume you’d expect from a perfume a bottle wearing a white tutu. That’s a not a bad thing at all! That means that Parfums de Rosine delivered. They delivered a classically pretty white floral with their signature rose. For lack of a better word, it really does come across as “graceful”.
