FRAGRANCE REVIEWS & NEW LAUNCHES
A ROSE IS A ROSE
Well not really. Take note but to what I am saying not the fragrance notes in ROSE flash Perfume Roll-On, the new fragrance by award-winning perfumer, Andy Tauer.
Tauer created ROSE flash in his own image but creating a complete rose scent, not bits and pieces from other scents to create this. So, I am simply saying and Mr. Tauer is saying there are NO notes to reveal.
Tauer stated on his website and I am paraphrasing that this is the first fragrance from the flash collection. It is meant to be fun and shared.
It seems that Mr.Tauer wants to keep ROSE flash rather simple but there is nothing simple about a rose. It is the Queen of all flowers and I am quite sure Mr. Tauer took this matter into consideration. In fact, Mr. Tauer states that ROSE flash is the most luxurious fragrances that he has created.
This is not to say that he hasn't composed other rose scented fragrances in the Classic and Homages collection that were not done without tremendous skill and artistic persuasion but I feel we are going to be hearing a lot about ROSE flash during the FIFI AWARDS.
If you are truly into rose scented fragrances, try these other creations by Tauer Perfumes such as No.06 Incense Rose, No.08 Une Rose Chypree and No.10 Une Rose Vermeille.
ROSE flash is really reasonably priced for such as luxurious perfume but there is limitations on the amount of them sold only in Switzerland and the US for logistic reasons only.
ROSE flash comes in a 10 ml roll-on bottle with simple packaging.
It is ONLY available at www.tauerperfumes.com
What I love about a rose is it is never out of style and the perfect fit for ALL seasons. So, I will indulge in this luxury item because Andy Tauer is one of the most respected perfumers of our time.

PATCHOULI OF RWANDA
The Fragrance of Peace
Award-winning perfumery The 7 Virtues launched PATCHOULI OF RWANDA Eau de Parfum Spray in honor of International Day of Peace on September 21, 2014.
PATCHOULI OF RWANDA is made in partnership with co-operative farmers in Rwanda. Barb Stegemann, founder and owner of The 7 Virtues perfumery works directly with farmers in countries that the collection of fragrances represent.
All fragrances of The 7 Virtues perfumery are made with the finest essential oils and free of paraben and phthalate. Its vegan that is "Good for the world. Good for your skin".
PATCHOULI OF RWANDA is a refreshing fragrance for men and women with notes of organic patchouli oil, green hibiscus, red grapefruit, cedar flower and freesia to add a gorgeous sweetness to a woody scent.
I had an opportunity to get a sample of PATCHOULI OF RWANDA and it is a wonderful and delightful scent that is just simply pretty. The patchouli blends elegantly without a overpowering heavy and deep scent that is known for patchouli.
It is light and airy and can be worn day or night. A great unisex scent that can be enjoyed on the job by employees sitting nearby.
The 7 Virtues perfumery is a remarkable company that is bringing the future of war-torn countries
The 7 Virtues Beauty Inc. is a Canadian company based in Halifax, Nova Scotia. So, far and I know there is much more to come but Barb Stegemann and company have so far created fragrances honoring Haiti, Afghanistan, The Middle East and Rwanada.
PATCHOULI OF RWANDA comes in a 50ml/1/7 fl oz Eau de Parfum spray and is available online at www.the7virtues.com or at department stores and fair trade shops.
