What Does À la Rose Smell Like

À la Rose by Maison Francis Kurkdjian introduces itself with a vibrant burst of Bulgarian damask rose. This rose note is no wallflower, taking centre stage with an intense floral freshness that's difficult to ignore. Complementing the rose, there's an undertone of Calabrian bergamot and a hint of Californian orange, which add a touch of sweet citrus to the mix, offering a vibrant, zesty edge to the overall scent.

As the fragrance starts to evolve, the heart notes of magnolia and violet subtly bloom. The magnolia is most noticeable, with its soft, creamy aroma that smoothly blends with the initial rose. The violet, while quieter, adds a delicate powderiness that anchors the floral frenzy, allowing the perfume to transition smoothly to the base notes.

In the dry down, the May rose absolute becomes more apparent, mingling with the damask rose in a charming dance of floral romance. A whisper of musk adds a warm, sensual touch without overwhelming the composition, while the cedar note brings a slight woodiness to the backdrop. All these notes combined, À la Rose becomes a beautiful, genuinely rosy fragrance with a fresh and powdery touch, subtly sweetened by citrus hints.

Review of À la Rose

À la Rose by Maison Francis Kurkdjian, released in 2014, is a scent that speaks to the heart of every woman. It's a tribute to the timeless elegance of the floral bouquet, with rose taking the lead role. This perfume truly blooms in the springtime, echoing the rebirth and freshness of the season. It's a perfect daytime scent, equally well-suited to a casual weekend brunch or a serious business meeting.

The scent profile is largely fresh and floral, with a touch of powdery sweetness. A hint of citrus adds a bit of zing, while green and fruity notes give it a light, playful edge. Despite its overall freshness, the perfume doesn't fade away quickly but lingers softly, making it a subtle yet noticeable presence.

However, it's the value aspect where À la Rose somewhat falters. With its slightly above mid-range price, it may not be for everyone. But for those who appreciate the delicate balance of rose and freshness, it's definitely a perfume worth considering.
