I’m not sure if it’s just me, but it seems like rose fragrances are really having a moment right now. The latest rose based scents I’ve tried have truly been impressive, but today’s fragrance really is the best rose I’ve ever had the pleasure of experiencing. Elixir Mysterious Rose is one of three new Extrait de Parfums from Amouroud’s recently launched luxurious Elixir Collection…
‘The Amouroud legacy continues with the crown jewel of our collection. The Amouroud Elixirs. Extrait de Parfums that are the most highly concentrated essences made from the world’s most rare and pure natural ingredients.’ ‘Warm deep wood notes, exotic East Indian spices, breath taking florals, and precious Ouds have been transformed into entirely new and perfect fragrance statements. These scent expressions are mysterious and powerful fragrance nuances that can reignite a vivid long-lost memory, creating passion and longing. Celebrating the boundless beauty of nature when it is combined with the majestic artistry to be found within the creative world of grand perfumery.’It’s not very often that a fragrance comes along that instantly knocks you off your feet – on first trying Amouroud Mysterious Rose I was instantly wowed, and knew this was going straight to my top five perfumes list!
Amouroud Elixir Mysterious Rose is a stunning floral oriental fragrance that takes you on a glorious journey into nightfall. It’s heady and intense, seductive and enticing. I believe this is my first ever Extrait De Parfum too – meaning the fragrance is made of the most precious raw materials, and has between 20 – 40% oil concentration. Due to lower alcohol levels, Extrait de Parfum fragrances also are much longer lasting than your average EDT or EDP scents, and because of their strength, they’re usually available in much smaller bottles (around 10 – 30ml)
Luckily for us though, Mysterious Rose is housed in a substantial 75ml bottle. And I can tell you this perfume is intense. You only need one spay, and it will literally last all day. So though it’s expensive, this 75ml will last you way longer than any EDT or even EDP scent of the same size.
And so on the the fragrance! Amouroud’s Mysterious Rose really is a floral fantasy come to life, opening with notes of zesty lemon, lightly spiced praline pepper and soft fig, you’re lead on to a luscious floral heart of Damascus rose, rich Bulgarian and rare Tibetan Rose, blended with Violet Leaf and Osmanthus. The warm woody base features notes of fresh Cedar and creamy Tahitian Vanilla Absolute, along with sweet Benzoin Rose and more luxurious Bulgarian rose.
