Rossy de Palma by Etat Libre d'Orange Perfume Review

Fragrance Review: Rossy de Palma

Back at the Bendel beauty breakfast, I discovered a new perfume called Rossy de Palma. It's a release from État Libre d'Orange, the house responsible for this smutty scent, so I knew it wouldn't be your typical mass-marketed fragrance.

Developed for Spanish actress Rossy de Palma, who fashion fiends may remember from Prêt-à-Porter, this fragrance is all about rose. Yes, there are notes of geranium, ginger, and cardamom as well. But all you smell is rose, rose, rose. It isn't a cheap rose or a plasticky rose; it has a vaguely dirty scent to it, which makes the fragrance pleasingly complex. But when it comes down to it, the only thing that lasts is rose. Some people love the scent of rose; for me, it conjures thoughts of stuffy Royal Doulton china and high-school boys giving single red ones and of a mean elderly lady who wore too much rose perfume. Rossy de Palma, as you can guess, is not for me. If you think it might be for you, a sample can be yours for $3.

I'm not into rosy scents, but, I do like the bottle.

I'm sorry, but I am such a 12yo boy that I cracked up at the name. I kept wondering if her 5 sisters had fragrances, too. :D
