The Best Fresh Rose Perfume, Miss Dior Rose n Roses

I think that Miss Dior Rose n Roses Eau De Toilette is one of the best examples of a fresh and modern Rose perfume. As the name would suggest, this fragrance is all about the rose. It’s an incredibly simple fragrance – essentially all I get is rose. It’s pretty, fresh and delicate but doesn’t last long. Being an Eau De Toilette I wouldn’t expect the perfume to be super strong, but I find that Miss Dior Rose n Roses doesn’t last beyond an hour or two unfortunately.

Lancôme Idôle Eau de Parfum

The original Lancôme Idôle Eau de Parfum is a beautiful rose and pear fragrance which I recommend as an easy-going, feminine, day-time scent. It can be relied upon to last well, with that great signature Lancôme lasting power. There is a hint of jasmine which helps support the lasting power of the rose. The pear scent makes the rose feel refreshing and ‘freshly-cut’. I love pear notes in perfume, I find it gives a fruitiness and freshness without any sweetness.

The Best Fruity Rose Perfume, L’Occitane Rose Eau de Toilette

The original L’Occitane Rose Eau de Toilette is the freshest rose in the brand’s range. It’s a classic fresh Rose perfume accompanied by a touch of a sour Lychee and fresh Raspberry. There is also a hint of Violet which keeps the scent undeniably feminine. 

Lychee and Raspberry are often combined with rose, as in Mugler Angel Nova and Carolina Herrera Very Good Girl.

My Favourite Rose Perfume, Givenchy Irresistible

Irresistible Givenchy Eau de Parfum is one of my personal favourite fragrances. 

I love a Pear fragrance note, and Irresistible Givenchy has it in spades. This fresh fruity Pear is accompanied by a beautifully sparkling Rose and Ambrette Musk note.

The Givenchy Irresistible perfumes often use Rose, and for me Givenchy’s Rose has quite a different scent to any other Rose. There is something sparkling and ethereal about it; Givenchy Ange Ou Secret has it, as well. 

At first I was worried that Irresistible Givenchy would have the projection I needed, but after a number of compliments when wearing it, I can confirm it does! I also love the complimentary body products as they help layer the fragrance.

The Best Winter Rose Perfume, Parle Moi De Parfum Une Tonne De Roses 8

Parle Moi De Parfum Une Tonne De Roses 8 also has a tonne of Patchouli in it, as well as Roses. This isn’t a fresh Rose scent, instead its deep, wintery and quite dark. It reminds me of Miss Dior Absolutely Blooming without the berry top notes.

The Best Cruelty Free & Vegan Rose Perfume, Floral Street Neon Rose

Floral Street Neon Rose smells like freshly cut roses mixed with Jasmine.

Floral Street use an innovative technique to heat up the rose petals to generate addition strength to this Rose perfume.

Fresh bergamot hovers above in the top note, while crisp, green Angelica leaves provide a botanical depth. Super-floral, super-clean.
