Pleasant Rose and all
I have to say that I didn’t like the original Amazing Grace much at all, and so I was surprised how much I actually appreciated this one. The opening is beautiful. It’s pure rose after the rain and you are transported to the summertime in the garden. The base notes are musky woods which gives it a sharper edge. On me it smelled like a rose scented lotion in the very end. I can still trace Amazing Grace DNA at the base- the cleanliness and a sort of safe home-base kind of feeling. It’s not a powerhouse kind of scent, soft and safe for everyday and those that like roses and flowery scents. I would not describe it as a romantic rose, it is very clean pure classic ballet kind of rose indeed. I also do not care much for the bottle design. However, sometimes we want just something very simple, pure and dependable, and there is nothing wrong with that. I am not very familiar with Niche fragrances, but it can be certainly compared to Chloe Roses perfume or Stella by Stella McCartney. Both of the latter scents are more intriguing in my humble opinion. I especially love Stella. All in all, I really enjoyed Amazing Grace Ballet rose.
