La Cologne de Rosine2

WHAT I SMELL:  La Cologne de Rosine opens up with a bright and fresh citrus that feels like it’s splashed with a refreshing tonic.  In a few minutes, a bright clean rose and violet combo give the perfume a pretty persona.  For being a pretty girl, the perfume has some pretty powerful projection, but there’s nothing heavy about La Cologne de Rosine because the “big” is as light as a feather. After some more time, a light musk and wood bring a clean and slightly “bathtastic” brush stroke of powder to the beaming florals which are warmed with the lightest of amber.  In the end, La Cologne de Rosine is a pretty rose tinged with freesia that is lit with rays of sunshine.

From the Les Parfums de Rosine website:

Notes:   Bergamot, Citrus, Tangerine, Rose Essence, Freesia, Violet,  Cedar Wood, White Musk, Amber

Cumulus2WHAT IT SMELLS LIKE TO ME:  Large white fluffy cumulus clouds moving quickly across the backdrop of the bluest sky.

    Lovely review !

    Love Rosine as a perfume house, especially Secrets de Rose. Wil try La Cologne if only for its name.

  4. I’m also this house’s fan but unfortunately local Barneys stopped carrying them. But I’ll get to try it eventually.
