Fragrance Review

                           CAFE' ROSE 
                   


Cafe' Rose by fashion designer extraordinaire Tom Ford is a Chypre floral fragrance for women and men. In translation Cafe' Rose means "coffee rose" but I prefer the French definition of cafe'. It sounds a lot more sophisticated and France is the world's perfume capitol.

Cafe' Rose is the darkest of the Tom Ford Jardin Noir Collection. It is richly composed of Chypre that is a scent/accord between fresh, citrus notes and deep woody or mossy tones. Composed as a rich, velvety and boozy aroma the three divinely induced roses of Turkish, Bulgarian and May rose that gives a new twist to the average rose scent.

Tom Ford's entire perfume collection is far from ordinary and Cafe' Rose is exceptional due to its long lasting endurance over several hours (seven to be exact) and the woody and spicy drydown scent that provides a beautiful layer on the skin that women and men enjoy. 

Cafe' Rose is part of the Tom Ford Private Collection. So that means Mr. Ford made sure that every elaborate detail from ingredients to packaging is the upmost best! 
The luxurious purple label on the amber bottle gives it a very prestigious look that can only be branded by the Tom Ford enterprises. 

Cafe' Rose Eau de Parfum was created by perfumer, Antoine Lie and made in the USA. 

I have added Cafe' Rose on my BEST LIST for rose scents and the perfect gift for Valentine's Day!

Ingredients

Top Notes: saffron, black pepper and May rose; 
Middle Notes: Turkish rose, Bulgarian Rose and coffee; Base Notes: incense, amber, sandalwood and patchouli

Cafe' Rose Eau de Parfum is available at www.nordstrom.com (in stores too) and www.luckyscent.com

FRAGRANCE REVIEW




                                   ROYAL PRINCESS OUD
                           A Haute Couture Family History
                           

                             

Royal Princess Oud by The House of Creed is inspired by over twenty volumes of sketch books revealing a time when the Creeds were devoted to men and women's tailoring in London. To be exact, the fashion sketches were by Henry Creed II. A leading couturier at that time, Creed designed sketches for fashionable socialites. 

Royal Princess Oud is a floral scent infused with the decadent of The Millesime 1849 oud floral fragrance that was created by Olivier Creed (sixth generation) for men and women in 2013.

Mr. Olivier Creed beautifully tied in The Millesime 1849 fragrance with the tempting and seductive scent of floral to combine and give homage to the sketches of clothing for women and men born from a century of family history.

Royal Princess Oud is heady and dark but lively and refreshing with a youthful ambiance for the modern lady.

Its a wonderful Oriental Floral fragrance that breathes the intoxication of the signature blend that the Creed family have composed since its inception as a perfumery in 1760. 

This fragrance reminds me of its comparative scent Royal
Mr. Olivier Creed
Oud Millesime also composed by Olivier Creed and launched in 2011. It provides a note of Oud, rare and expensive that denotes a splendor of a woody sweet scent.


Royal Princess Oud is by far my most favorite of the Oud scents by The House of Creed. It consist of Top Notes: Bergamot, Rose, Violet

Heart Notes: Jasmine Absolute, Vanilla Absolute, Aldehyde, Patchouli, Iris

Base Notes: Siamese Benzoin, Mysore Sandalwood, Styrax, Oud (Agarwood).

This fragrance can be conveniently purchase in three sizes, however due to the nature of its jewel, the "Oud". It does come at a very steep price.


Royal Princess Oud can be purchased at Authorized Retailers  www.creedboutique.com  www.saksfifthavenue.com and www.neimanmarcus.com.

The word "belles lettres" is a French phrase meaning "beautiful or "fine writing. Since this is a term to describe a category of writing, this will pertain to my passion about fragrances. I will review niche,natural, artisan and designer perfumes from all over the world. I write with passion but will use my journalistic skills that I obtained in college. Not only will I feature fragrances but I will feature new books on fragrances/perfumes, fragrance events and interview authors and perfumers.


I hope you take this journey with me and begin your own passion for the ART OF PERFUMERY!
