Nice, but not a soliflore...
I was a bit surprised to find that Annick Goutal ROSE SPLENDIDE is just as much about magnolia and pear as it is about rose. The opening does smell mostly of rose, but as the fragrance ("eau parfumée" is the concentration indicated on the manufacturer's produced sample"--not sure, actually what that means...) develops, the magnolia and the pear become much stronger. I'd say that the magnolia is on an equal footing with the rose for quite a while, but by the drydown, this ends up being a fairly fruity experience. Not overly sweet, but fruity enough to mention, since some people in the market for a "splendid rose" are bound to be disappointed by what they will regard as the adulterant pear in this composition.

ROSE SPLENDIDE is a fine, albeit simple fruity-floral fragrance. It smells very natural, and I would recommend this as a gift to younger perfume users, to help wean them off celebrity scents. It does not really hold a candle to some of the truly splendid truly and mostly rose perfumes readily available, but it is certainly pleasant to wear.

Green and fresh garden roses
I was a little dubious about Rose Splendide at first. I was wondering how Annick Goutal was going to manage another rose scent when it was already competing with Ce Soir Ou Jamais, Rose Absolue and Quel Amour! Rose Splendide has proven itself a different composition altogether, and one that I am happy to own a sample of.

Rose Splendide is in two words, fresh and green. The scent opens very garden-like, rather like the scent of a rose bush rather than the flower. There's even a slight hint of the soil, creating a strangely addictive naturalness. This seems to be a new trend with Annick Goutal, since their other 2010 release, Ninfeo Mio has a similar garden-like feel.

This fragrance is original and very unique. I have honestly never smelt a rose fragrance quite like this one. It takes a lot of getting used to, but after some time, Rose Splendide begins to grow on you.

Towards the heart, the pear is clearly noticeable, however it is more tart than sweet and fruity. It's like pureed pears and crushed red rose petals. As the scent settles, there's a subtle hint of sweet musk and powder.

This is obviously a fragrance that defies the stereotypical rose perfume. It aims to be breath-takingly beautiful and natural, like something you'd find in the wilderness, not bottled up with added synthetics and alcohol. I am amazed that Annick Goutal has gone in this direction, leaving behind its signature, old-fashioned vibe.

Rose Splendide's delicate, Spring-like vivaciousness is rather adorable as it sets itself apart from the fruitier rose in Quel Amour! The lasting power is rather good, however I am reviewing the EDP. This new release is worthy of a sniff from all rose lovers alike.
