A very shy rose
Y'all know how I feel about rose scents... Alas, it is in the set and I will give it a fair chance.

From the first spray, this is giving me Chloé vibes - pure and clean florals, however, a little more mature and a little soapy. Yet again, this is more of a spring scent than for autumn. Though I dislike florals, I have to say Duchess Rose is more inviting to try on my skin than Lady Blanche was.

On skin, Duchess Rose has the same Chloé-esque quality to its florals. Somewhat soapy too. It is quite light and airy for a rose scent. It is in fact a fine fragrance, light, feminine and soft.
Duchess Rose is so light that I reapplied generously just after it dried down. Even though I was generous to begin with!
In all honesty, the fragrance is barely there. Very personal and only those passing you by or standing next to you, would be able to smell it.

I usually wear a fragrance for some hours and write my final take then, but I completely forgot. Why? Because Duchess Rose is so faint and lasts only a few hours.
I can only smell her close to skin.
What I do smell is a pleasant, light take on a classic rose.

Duchess Rose, the wicked temptress
and that's what she really is. On the present of the distinguished society she seems feminine, mysterious and almost shy.

What no one knows: she is calculating and frivolous. Like a spider that carefully and slowly spans her web, she quietly waits for her victim. If she has spied it, her looks act like an aphrodisiac on her victim. She wraps it in her scent of full-bodied red roses and irresistible tangerine. The attraction is too strong, there is no escape.

In the adjacent forest of the castle under the protection of the trees, she has her victim all to herself. At least for a few hours... However, at midnight at the latest, the parents Lady Blanche and Lord George expect the young duchess as usual in the premises of the castle

An expensive, wicked rose
The fragrance starts the first seconds gently, yet a tad fresh and smells like a ripe tangerine.
The tangerine says goodbye quickly and instead comes the elegant, expensive rose that knows what it wants! - She wants to stand out! But in a seductive, sexy and mysterious way and whiteness what in no way seems cheap.
The toned down woody notes give the rest and round it off.
A rose fragrance that is loud - but yet restrained.
The bottle is definitely a looker. (:

I love this scent but have a problem with its longevity & sillage. It seems to me weaker than average even. Any thoughts on that ?

Rose water plus sweet citrus. Rose lemonade! A stray drop of benzoin, perhaps?

This was love at first sniff as it is very close to my signature, but when I read AMBROXAN in the base notes, got it off of my want list
