come up roses

a rose is a rose is a rose perfume.

When first hearing of Diptyque's new rose-inspired perfume, we weren't exactly shocked.

After all, the luxe Parisian perfume house already offers over a dozen scents, five of which belong in the floral family.

But when we actually got around to smelling it, the real surprise occurred.  Though definitely a feminine scent, Eau Rose is crisp, light, fresh, and not the least bit sugary. Made from a infusion of roses, it's no stronger the scent of an early morning walk through a garden. So even if you tend to stray from flowery fragrances, this baby is subtle enough for even the most sensitive noses.
