There's something so beautiful about rose scents to me. It could be that they evoke childhood memories of making our own versions with rose petals, water and patience or that it's the most calming floral to my mind.
What Roger & Gallet perfumers have done with Rose Imaginaire, however, is something different entirely and something more than a little bit special. In their quest to capture the most beautiful rose in the world as a scent, they did so without ever using the rose or any derivative from the rose plant.
They did so with fruits and flowers from some of the most beautiful parts of the world such as Italian raspberries and Egyptian Jasmine. The final result is a beautifully bright rose scent that's rounded and softened with velvety, milky notes.

As always, when reviewing a scent I like to wear it as I write the post, I've been wearing Rose Imaginaire since 10am this morning and only needed the lightest spritz to bring it back to life this evening. It's incredibly long lasting for a fragrant water and is unlike any rose scent you've tried before. It reminds me of the feel of silk or velvet, soft, tactile and luxurious.
