Key Notes of Floral Rose

What Does Floral Rose Smell Like

Dossier's Floral Rose perfume is a deeply floral interpretation, inspired by the renowned Le Labo's Rose 31. It opens with the fragrant aroma of Rose Centifolia and the spiciness of cumin, setting a warm, robust tone from the outset. Following the initial burst of this rose-cumin duo, the perfume transitions into its middle notes, with the earthy scent of vetiver blending seamlessly with cedarwood's woody, slightly sweet aroma. A hint of fragrant incense completes the mid-note profile, providing an underlying smoky tone that adds depth to the overall scent. As the perfume settles, the base notes of musky cistus and warm amber make their appearance, providing a lingering sensuality to the fragrance. This blend creates a floral perfume with rich, robust, and earthy undertones, that avoids being overly sweet or traditionally feminine. Instead, it straddles the line between feminine and masculine, making it suitable for anyone who enjoys complex, layered fragrances. It has a gentle sweetness tempered by warm, rich undertones, proving that floral scents can have a touch of the exotic and the mysterious. In essence, Floral Rose can be described as a bold yet accessible fragrance, a modern take on the classic rose perfume.

Review of Floral Rose

Dossier's Floral Rose offers a very accessible alternative to the iconic Le Labo's Rose 31. It is an undeniable fact that at $39, it significantly undercuts the price point of the original fragrance which goes for $192. This means perfume lovers who are budget conscious can now enjoy a similar scent experience without the hefty price tag.

Floral Rose does a commendable job of echoing the defining characteristics of Rose 31, particularly its warm, dark undertones. The scent journey starts off with the familiar softness of Centifolia rose, before trailing into an unexpected blend of warm amber and smoky cumin. These earthy elements lend a gender fluid quality to the fragrance, making it an interesting choice for both men and women.

However, Floral Rose is not an exact replica of Rose 31 - and it does not claim to be one. It champions rose, the queen of flowers, in a somewhat different manner. While Rose 31 is a complex mélange of floral and woody notes, Floral Rose leans more towards the floral side of things, with the rose note more illuminated. This might be appealing to those who prefer a stronger emphasis on floral notes, but might be a bit of a letdown for those seeking the exact character of Rose 31.

The concentration of Floral Rose is also worth mentioning. At 20%, its scent is quite strong, promising good longevity. However, this might be overwhelming for some, especially those who favour subtle fragrances.

In conclusion, Dossier's Floral Rose provides a wallet-friendly alternative to the high-end Rose 31. It captures the essence of the original, while adding its own floral spin. This perfume would be a great choice for rose lovers seeking a bold, gender-neutral fragrance. However, it might fall short for those in search of an exact Rose 31 dupe.
