Mélange de Roses is a set dedicated to Rose: the unquestionable queen, the most dramatic – and the most lovely – of them all.
1. Portrait of a Lady by Frederic Malle [EDP, $7.59 /1ml]:
A sublime rose blended with incense and patchouli. Inspired by the 1880 novel with the same name, Portrait of a Lady follows the story of Isabel Archer, an independent woman turned wealthy and elegant.
2. Delina by Parfums de Marly [EDP, $6.89 /1ml]:
Peony mixed with dark Turkish rose in a clash of deep floral tones and sweet candy ones. Delina is both childish and serious, PDM’s first attempt – and a good one – at a femme crowd pleaser, with an enjoyable result of high end elements and popular rhythms with a velvet feel.
3. L’Ombre Dans L’Eau by Diptyque [EDT, $3.49 /1ml]:
Rose takes a secondary role here, leaving the big picture to its surroundings. The soil, the branches, the stems, the leaves and the flower. L’Ombre Dans L’Eau is a walk through a magical garden in springtime.
A FEMME FATALE
4. La Fille de Berlin by Serge Lutens [EDP, $4.89 /1ml]:
The Girl from Berlin is a pungent dark rose-patchouli combo with geranium and sweet honey, a melancholic & decadent composition that expresses the flower in its richest form.
