Leander can do it alone!
The opening rose quickly becomes astonishingly tarry after a gentle prelude, but soon recaptures itself and introduces its contrasting manifestations into an apart field of tension between delicate fragrance on the one hand and bitterness on the other. It's nice to experience that both go side by side.

Raspberry as an announcement is a good fit, but its content is unnecessary. There are enough many intensely fruity roses out of themselves, some of them even with a "raspberry" scent, to explicitly need an external contribution. From my stock, the English rose "Leander" by David Austin can represent the aroma of raspberry quite well alone. Botanically this cannot be astonishing, the raspberry belongs, like various other fruit varieties, finally to the rose family.

After half an hour, the tar is gone and leaves only an attractive, bitter undertone, while the fruit gains weight. In return, it loses a little of its uniqueness, which, however, is no harm, but provides for variety: In the course of the following hours I perceive, besides the raspberry, pears and - with restrictions - also stone fruit such as apricot or possibly peach, all equally relatives of the rose and thus plausible to me. A noteworthy plus is that the scent does not develop or at most minimally (and then very nobly!) sweet-like features.

It also remains clear and fresh throughout and the internal tension remains airy vs. rest-bitter. It is perhaps similar to the one between the sparkling upper voice and the striding, partly stomping lower voice in the first hundred bars in Impromptu No. 4 from Franz Schubert's first collection (youtube.com/watch?v=V0z7mUV5rSc).

Around noon the olfactory lower voice is gradually taken over by a woody grazing aroma, which is quite capable of reminding of paper (specifically: moist), if we want to follow the indications - and I don't have a better idea. The obscene retreats, the rose accentuates its harsher side from now on, garnished with more candy after all. I think, behind the euphemism "white amber" simply hides a certain twitchiness, which is partly responsible for it.

The progressing afternoon brings only little change. Fortunately, sweetness is still very muted. The humid newspaper steams peacefully, dabbed by a remnant of the above candy rose and from the eighth hour onwards ends in the direction of purer ambergris.

Conclusion: 'Rose of No Man's Land' is a pleasant, rather light spring or summer scent that I can best imagine on younger ladies.

You're all right, but....
...the scent is almost destructive to me.

I can understand every single comment on Rose of No Man's Land. Find the background information about Byredo and his doer highly interesting. Likes Scandinavian design, (jewellery even more than furniture) And was thrilled when I had the first sample available for testing.

My result at that time for the fragrance rating was a smooth 9th What a mood, what a wonderful painting, what a beautiful rose. As beautiful as Bette Middler singing about her. The fragrance ended up on my wish list and not soon afterwards in my collection.

Then the dilemma began, because I didn't find a suitable occasion to wear Rose of No Man's Land. On days when I wasn't feeling well, the scent was too gloomy and melancholic for me, it pulled me down, hurt my soul and especially the base was dusty and grey for me and only a few cobwebs were missing to make the picture perfect. It was the first time that I didn't feel repelled or disgusted by a scent, but felt almost hurt.

If I tried to wear the perfume on days when I was well, when I was in a positive mood, I had a similar feeling as if I was wearing the wrong clothes for an important occasion. Uncomfortable is still to put it mildly. Then it didn't fit at all and so the bottle stood almost reproachfully in my scent cabinet and I was really glad when a grateful customer found himself.

I assume that I would have liked a base with oak moss, vetiver or cedar wood much better, but then it wouldn't have been that special scent anymore. If the perfumer wanted to depict the horror of war or the memory of the fallen with the fragrance, then he succeeded perfectly and so the fragrance is a real work of art for me. But it's not a perfume I want to wear.

I have left the evaluation, because the fragrance is not a bit worse, just because I do not feel comfortable with the base in the long run. And who knows, maybe my feelings about perfume will change again. It wouldn't be the first time. In my experience, Rose of No Man's Land is a very special fragrance in our perfumery portfolio and should be declared an olfactory general education. You don't have to like it and you don't have to wear it, but you should already know it.

Carousel of emotions
I love that rose scent. Though it causes a chaos of feelings in me ... sometimes flawlessly elfish, not of this world, happy - then melancholically lonely on a vast infinite landscape in the south, the :and covered with ears swaying in the wind as far as the eye can see, delicate roaring penetrates to the ear - in the middle of it red spots of poppies - shimmering light. Then again a cheerful spring day (also in winter :-)) murmuring and clinking in a street coffee ....

Rose in the morning dew
With the spraying on I go through an invisible door into No Mans Land....

It's a fresh, cool morning... but the air is a little dry here...
...Everything here is dipped in fresh dew...

I walk past some green pepper plants... the peppercorns are green... not very spicy or hot, but still young and crispy... there is a great fresh tender spice in the air...

Then I walk on, past many pretty raspberry bushes... Each shrub is perfectly cut... The shrubs are in full bloom and at the same time carry very juicy red bright berries..... (?)

After a short time, I can see and smell it from afar..... a field full of red and white roses... The roses are also still young and many are still green-buddy...

...They all glisten so beautifully in the morning dew..
Some have already risen or are still rising... it smells wonderfully soft-pink....

But someone or something is following me...
i only see his shadow, never his face...

...this "something" smells somehow musky-ambrig....
"He" or "it" doesn't hurt me, it's peaceful..... kind of sweet and very shy...

Rose of no Man's Land smells rosy-musky on me...

The breastfeeding is mediocre for me and the durability is very good...

I will visit No Man's Land again soon :)
