WHAT I SMELL: I guess I should not have been surprised, but I was pleasantly so as the opening of Amorem Rose is warm, deep and incredibly rapturous with a beautiful saffron topped by a mentholated rose. This rose is not one of playful and sweet frivolity, instead, it’s a rose wrapped in abundance of mystery and intrigue. The mentholated opening gives way to a grand rose that lingers in smokiness making the perfume feel as if it’s smoldering off the skin For the privileged wearer, the perfume resides in this most exquisite place like a queen holding court. There’s power in Amorem Rose in the way the rose holds the wearer captive revealing its infinite wisdom. After considerable time, the perfume’s smokiness is met with a warm ambered wood which adds even more depth to this royal treasure. Amorem Rose is beautifully calm, but beautifully serious.
From Shalini Parfums:
Amorem Rose is an ode to love, the greatest love…
The Rose has the highest love energy of all the flowers, often referred to as the Queen of Flowers, the symbol of the divine feminine love.
Amorem Rose is the most opulent rose parfum with an element of smoke.
The smoke brings a sense of mystery and intrigue reminiscent of a great love… the love that touches your soul deeply and alters your very being.
The parfum is a glorious composition of Bulgarian rose, Saffron flowers, Baltic amber and Mahogany wood.
The Damask Rose which grows in the magical “Rose Valley” in Bulgaria is considered the most fragrant, exquisite and opulent of all roses. It is the “heart” of Amorem Rose.
Saffron flowers bring a golden light to the parfum, and are reminiscent of the orient and grandeur.
Baltic amber and Mahogany wood bring the element of smoke and intrigue while creating a balance to the beautiful floral of the Damask rose.
