Beautiful spices that just cut through the aromatic florals, a smoky potpourri of heavenly aromas…
Top notes are rose and caraway; middle notes are rose, vetiver and cedar; base notes are musk, guaiac wood, olibanum, labdanum and agarwood (oud).
What makes Rose 31 by Le Labo so special, well to begin with its highest quality ingredients, for example the rose petals featured in this scent are plucked by hand in Grasse, and this really shows through in the way the scent envelopes you in its richness.
The rose in Rose 31 is intense, dark and dried with regards to my initial reference to pot pourri. My Indian heritage makes me automatically drawn to spices that are strong and highly aromatic. Upon the first spray I instantly get ample cumin, it adds a lovely complexity which is unlike the usual peppery accord which is commonly seen in many woody-spicy scents. However even with all the spice and a slight sweaty facet in the background, in no way did this scent behave masculine on my skin. What I got was a deep rose, honeyed- ambery sweetness and cool notes of vetiver along with ample woody facets.
This scent is really rich and layered and with each sniff I get a beautiful new accord that makes its way to centre-stage. Even though the notes don’t state it but my body chemistry brings out a certain citrusy freshness in this scent.
This in my opinion is one of the more perfect unisex scents that really do transcend beautifully through the seasons….this is the type of scent you’d want your home to be constantly smelling of, as you wear it, your husband wears it...hell, let your dog wear it too!
Wear it….all the time, it awakens you instantly! An all season, all weather unisex star!
