The perfect Summer scent for me – Roger & Gallet Rose

It’s hard to find a fragrance that is suitable for the hot summer days. I find that the summer versions of out favourite fragrances are sometimes still a little heavy for me this time of year.

Who am I kidding? It’s an excuse to satisfy my perfume addiction.

Anyways, this month’s favourite is Roger & Gallet Rose Eau douce parfumee.

I’m not a huge fan of rose scented products, they can be a little grandma-ish but I do enjoy the scent when it’s blended with others. This is the latter.

It smells fresh, contemporary and pretty rather than rose-y. To my unsophisticated nose it’s reminiscent of Stella by Stella McCartney – my signature scent.

It’s sold as a gentle fragrant water rather than edt or edp. This is the only down side for me. The scent only lasts an hour or so on my skin. If Roger & Gallet sold a edt/edp of Rose I would snap it up.

That being said I would repurchase this. I like it so much that I wouldn’t mind carrying the little bottle around in my handbag. Re-application would be a pleasure.

Price wise they start at €17 for a 30ml bottle, body lotion is €13.50 and soap starts at €6. I may have to get the soap and lotion too. Roger & Gallet are a French brand but their products are now sold in chemists around Ireland.

What is your favourite Summer scent?

    If you like the Roger and Gallet rose perfume, then you would love Paul Smith Rose Amy. It is a bit on the pricey side but is fab and I use it all year round. My summer scent is Ghost Sweetheart-is lovely. Some people think it is too sweet, but if you like floral fragranced perfumes then you will like this

    Hi Amy! A little off topic, but did you ever review Chlorella? I remember reading that you were trying it but I canä’t find a review anywhere and I’m so curious to try it :) Did you like it?

      @Skönhetsjunkie I never got to review it – I had to reduce to 2 tablets per day because of iodine levels in my body. I haven’t noticed any difference on 2 but most people who love the results take much more.

    Hi,

    I just discovered your blog and your youtube channel and I love them both! I like your accent and watching your vids might improve my english (I’m German) quite a lot!

    Anyways, I actually don’t have summer or winter fragrances (apart from Chanel Nr. 5, that definetely IS an autumn/winter scent), but I very much like “Classique” by Jean Paul Gaultier, “Voile de Jasmin” by Bulgari and “Pure Poison” by Dior.

    Love,

    Jana

    Eau d’Iris by Prada for daytime can’t be beaten in my book. And their Amber for night!

    Favorite summer scents that I wear are citrus or coconut. I have a variety of scents in those two categories. Sometimes with a Vanilla accent in the coconut other times a blend of different citrus scents. Right now I’m loving my pomegranate lemon and Vanilla Coconut from Bath and Body Works the most.
