Oh why hello Spring? Are you there? Please meet one of my friends from my collection, Rose Splendide by Annick Goutal.Imagine that you were getting ready for a summertime date. Expecting it to be a warmer night than others; you put on a bit of BB cream just to give your face a bit of color and brighten it up, along with a slight hint of nude eyeshadow and a tinted pink lip balm. To finish off your look, you reach for your bottle of Rose Splendide.
This romantic Eau de Toilette is centered around the intense aromatic combinations of Centifolia rose, musk, magnolia and pear. It opens up very "green" on me which was surprising because I assumed the sweet rose and fruity pear notes would overpower the rest. After about an hour, it gradually mellowed out into the pink petal nirvana that I was initially expecting - perfect for a summertime date.
The 100ml glass bottle is very elegant and adorned with a romantic pink bow and gold cap. The spritzer is a standard spritzer and you will only need about 4 to 5 pumps of this on your pulse points to release the notes throughout the day. If you are interested in some additional charming and delightful rose perfumes, then check out the remaining rose collection by Annick Goutal. As you can see in the pictures, I still have a few more to review for you. ;-)
