Yves Rocher Moment de Bonheur Perfume Review

Yves Rocher Moment de Bonheur

Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular Perfume

It’s been a few months since this rose lover has posted a rose-centric perfume review. And that’s too long.

Yves Rocher Moment de Bonheur is a green rose soliflore. It opens with green leaves and rose petals. At this stage, the roses lean lemon-y. The heart is rose petals that lean peach-y with a sour/tart musk. The dry-down is a green rose with an astringent cedar. This base sort of hovers over the skin. It’s like a sheer breeze over a better-than-reality rose garden. It’s like a fresh musk with traces of rose, greens and cedar.

Overall, I’m surprised by it. Moment de Bonheur isn’t a dark rose, but one of those spring-time, airy roses that brings to mind cottage gardens. Or at least it brings to mind little pink roses climbing up a cedar trellis. It’s pretty and I think it’s a nice soliflore for the money.

Notes listed include green notes, geranium, rose, patchouli and cedar. Launched in 2011. PERFUMER – Annick Menardo

Give Moment de Bonheur a try if you like “tea rose” soliflores. Or perfume Chloé Eau de Parfum (and any of its many flankers), Montale Crystal Flowers, Annick Goutal Rose Pompon, Oscar de la Renta Rosamor, Aramni Privé Rose Alexandrie and/or Le Jardin Retrouvé Rose Trocadero. It’s one of those roses for people that like fresh, garden-y roses.

Projection is average and longevity is below average.

The 1.7 oz bottle retails for $61, but you can often find it 50% off on sale at Yves Rocher. A minis and bath/body products are also available.

Victoria’s Final EauPINIONTea roses climbing up a cedar trellis. It’s one of those “Oh, so pretty!” roses. I mean,  look, it’s juice is pink! That’s how pretty it is. It isn’t a new edition to my “Favorite Roses” but I think it’s a good rose for the money. When I wear these sort of “carefree roses”, I tend to like for them to be fruitier. But, maybe I do need to add a rose that’s more green to my collection…

  1. Hi Victoria! You’ve made me curious about your favorite rose scents with your review of this scent. This one seems fresh and juicy, but not suffocating. If you’ve written a post about your favorite rose scents, would you provide a link if it’s not too much trouble.

    1. No problem! Here’s a link from last year:

      I’m trying to think if I have any to add to that I’ve tried over the year…I guess Elizabeth & James Nirvana Rose. https://www.eaumg.net/elizabeth-james-nirvana-rose-edp-perfume-review/
      I feel like there was another that I really enjoyed wearing, Oh, Papillon Tobacco Rose! https://www.eaumg.net/papillon-tobacco-rose-edp-perfume-review/

      I really like this one for the price. The more I think about it, I don’t have a rose like this (a sheer, fresh green rose). I’m going to use up my little bottle and see how I feel about it when it empties 🙂
