maybe it’s the romance in the air this month with valentine’s day right around the corner, but i have been bitten by the love bug and the culprit is an unexpected treat from parisian parfumers, roger&gallet. their rose fragrant water landed on my doorstep and i was instantly smitten by the blend of rose and peony. a longer sniff gave way to mandarin orange with a little amber and almond milk mixed in. the scent is…enchanting. it’s tough to do a rose water that’s not overwhelming and this one comes off as delicate and delicious. it’s fresh and girly, not too soft or flowery – all around scent perfection.
roger&gallet’s rose fragrant water is available online, 1 oz for $30 and 3.3 oz for $50. let me know if i should drop a hint to your valentine ;)
