Parfums de Rosine Ballerina No. 4 Perfume Review

Parfums de Rosine Ballerina No. 4

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… Continue reading

Parfums de Rosine Rose Nue Perfume Review

Rosine Rose Nue

When I want to smell “pretty”, I like to wear Les Parfums de Rosine. Their specialty is pretty, romantic rose-y perfumes.

Parfums Rosine Cologne Rose Ocean Perfume Review

Parfums Rosine Cologne de Rose Ocean

Parfums de Rosine Cologne Rose Océan is a new unisex perfume inspired by a rose growing near the ocean.

Rose Ocean opens as a bright citrus with a juicy blackcurrant. There’s an orange blossom in this that reminds me of grape jelly (don’t worry, it’s still an orange blossom). The heart is a jammy rose with humid white florals. Up until this stage, Cologne Rose Ocean really didn’t remind me of the sea. The heart isn’t aquatic in that perfumery sense of the “aquatic”… Continue reading

Parfums de Rosine Rose des Neiges EDP Perfume Review

Rosine Roses des Neiges

 

Parfums Rosine’s newest perfume is a fragrance inspired by snow, Rose de Neiges. It’s supposed to bring to mind a rose garden in frost. As someone that loves cool fragrances and roses, I couldn’t wait to try this one. I feel like the fragrance industry is really lacking in the area of cool or “aquatic” roses. Is Rose de Neiges the rose I’ve been waiting for?

Rose de Neiges reminds me of snow cream. It’s a linear fragrance and if… Continue reading | 7 Comments
