Rose Week 2015
Viktoria Minya has launched a rose soliflore, Hedonist Rose. This soliflore focuses on the fruity and honeyed aspects of roses. The final result is a delicate, winsome fruity-floral.
Hedonist Rose is a peachy rose. It opens with ripe, fuzzy peaches and a dry, spicy clove with a hint of sweet, delicate honey. It’s light and airy – a fruity rose with subtle spice. Hedonist Rose dries down to a sheer, jammy rose with white musk. Hedonist Rose reminds me of a chilled rosé – bright and fruity.
In comparison to the original Hedonist, this one is rather different. The original one is denser, thicker and richer. Hedonist Rose is a sheer, whimsical rose soliflore. I can see fans of the original not being blown away by this one unless they really have a soft spot for rose or sheer, fruity scents.
Notes listed include lemon, clove, peach, rose, amber, musk and white wine. Launched in 2014. PERFUMER – Viktoria Minya
Give Hedonist Rose a try if you like fruity rose soliflores. Or if you like perfumes like INeKe Sweet William, CREED Spring Flower, Annick Goutal Petite Cherie, Fresh Sake and/or By Kilian Forbidden Games. I imagine this one wearing best in humid climates or warm weather.
Projection and longevity are average.
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – Sheer peach rosé. It’s a pretty rose soliflore but I prefer the original Hedonist over this one as far as originality goes. But, it is pretty and worth trying if you like the way it sounds.
