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.
