New Release: Frassaï El Sur Collection – Rosa Sacra

WHAT I SMELL:  Rosa Sacra opens with a fresh dewy rose that quickly melds into a creamy green stemmed rose that buzzes with a combination of pink pepper and minty essence of berries.  The perfume is soft, but not demure, and its creamy light gauze wraps you up in a cocoon of comfort.  After a short time, a soured note makes an appearance under the rose adding a layer of matured confidence.  As the perfume continues to slowly morph, a clean musk adds more to the gauze and haze along with a light addition of a woody pencil shaving note.  Again, this just adds to depth of the perfume in the most wonderful of ways.  In the end, the an added note of oakmoss dries the perfume to a dusty and spiced woody veil.   Rosa Sacra is a rose perfume for those who like to have their rose anchored in the ancient wisdom of the ages.
