Churchy herbs
Sharp myrrh and herbs initially. Then a warmth of almost cooked carrots blends with resinous smoky vanillic woods. The initial blast almost had me running, but stay with it and it heads to the churchy burning incense zone. I'm really confused to the stated notes of this line because i'm just not picking them up as they say.
I've given this sample box a good run and my overall verdict is 'challenging'. If you like unusual scents then this range may be what you seek. 'Pretty' doesn't seem to come into it but 'interesting' does.

This one has a quite gentle churchy myrrh herbal drydown that is worth persevering for.

Channeling Andy Tauer (or a tale of torture by powder)...
Rosarium opens with an accord resembling black ink, with hints of underlying dusty dry vanilla. As the composition enters its early heart the black ink accord vacates as stark musk-laden frankincense joins the dusty, highly powdery vanilla as it grows into co-star status adding a slight amount of sweetness in its wake. During the late dry-down the frankincense recedes, leaving the powdery vanilla, picking up a bit more sweetness along the way while adding supporting varnish-like woody vetiver through the finish. Projection is very good, as is longevity at 11-12 hours on skin.

I had high hopes for really enjoying Rosarium based on its impressive official notes list, but alas it wasn't meant to be. The key culprit is effervescent, dusty vanilla not unlike the intolerable stuff Andy Tauer uses as his signature base. If someone told me Tauer was the "ghost perfumer" behind Rosarium I would absolutely believe it. That said, while the perfumer isn't Tauer, the actual nose must have been awed by his style as the similarities are incontrovertible in my opinion. Also very Taueresque is the musky, almost root-beer-like co-starring accord that adds an off-putting element to the fine frankincense presentation in the composition's heart. In truth, if one can either get past or enjoy the vanilla root-beer float aspect of the composition, Rosarium really isn't that bad, it just represents the polar opposite of my preferences. The bottom line is Rosarium channels Andy Tauer pretty well, and those that enjoy his compositions will near-certainly enjoy Rosarium too. Unfortunately as one who doesn't, the composition was a non-starter about 30 seconds in, only geting worse as time passes, earning a "below average" 2 to 2.5 stars out of 5 rating and a strong avoid to the powder averse. While this is a major pass for me, those that love Tauer's powdery vanilla signature should give Rosarium a sniff as it will most likely impress (even though it is not by Mr. Tauer).

Pagan incense
Rosarium is a balsamic incense-based scent (as the name suggest, with its “liturgical” reference) with overall a bit more complexity and color than many other niche incense scents; there’s a sweet-powdery floral accord comprising a hint of honey (quite dry and really subtle), jasmine and a dusty-buttery note of iris and carrot, and a nice, quite natural and almost raw woody base where you get both cedar (I mean “real” cedar) and vetiver. While many niche incenses smell quite synthetic, this one plays actually the “natural” card; incense itself is surely a bit artificial but here it’s surrounded by a really pleasant and compelling frame of earthy “nature” – carrot, flowers, woods, honey. All crafted in a quite subtle way, to keep incense as the main note. Somehow dusty, somehow gentle (flowers, powder), and overall much quiet, meditative, kind of gloomy as you would expect given the notes – but not overly dark, just more “churchy” with a feel of archaic rawness. Like the rest of this line, this scent as well evokes an intriguing feel of “Mediterranean gothic” which I find quite compelling and well played here as well. It’s still basically and incense scent and personally I am more than tired of this family, so don’t expect anything groundbreaking; but still, this is really nice..

7-7,5/10
