A rose is a rose is a rose is a rose
Winged words are what Gertrude Stein, American writer, once said. With her abstract poetry, Stein played with language, bringing objects and things more into consciousness. And with the tautological headline of this commentary she did something quite different from the countless bards, poets, musicians before her: she did not romanticize the rose, she gave it back its identity as a thing of this world and described a rose again for what it is.

As someone who is a big fan of roses and has many copies of them at home, I can say that she is right. Because roses do one thing above all else - a lot of work. You fight aphids, you fight aphids, you water (not a little!), you fertilize, you cut, you prick yourself. You are rewarded: with blooming elegance. And with scents, oh yes, with scents: some have a fruity scent, with notes of berries or lemons, some have a spicy scent, for example of cloves, or a spicy-sweet scent of myrrh, others have the scent of old French roses, that's generally what we describe with rose scent - that deep, intense, slightly fruity floral scent. And it was precisely as a fan of roses as of rose fragrances that I recently came across "Rose Orage" from Chabaud. Orage means "thunderstorm" in French. This is how the fragrance is supposed to describe a rose as it blossoms in the light of the sun before a shower of rain pours down on it.

As someone who sees his specimens exposed to the weather of the world every day, I naturally found this thematically extremely exciting. And I was all the more surprised that the scent kept its promise (at least I seem to have succumbed to this suggestion). It is of a rather subtle nature, but I can follow the whole thing very well. And I also find the course of the fragrance with its iridescent presence amazing. When I wear it for many hours, I have the permanent feeling that something is constantly happening to the fragrance, as if it were alive, like the rose itself, out there in a thunderstorm, shaken by the wind, hit by the rain, and again irradiated by the sun.

The fragrance begins tangy-fresh and fruity before the rose takes the lead. But not only with its blossom, there are the leaves that I think I can smell, there is the wood that I think I can perceive. The rose blossom is present, but not overly heavy and baroque. On the contrary, the whole thing is a subtle, delicate play with a pleasant freshness. The way she's been brought in here is masterful. And indeed, the whole thing smells as if raindrops had settled on the petal of a rose and as if the climate had become somewhat fresher.

And the smell works. When I started my test, I thought: nice, but a bit too subtle. But no, it's a little less noticeable at times, but then again quite clear. Through shirt and mask and out in the fresh air I suddenly thought: Persuaded, I will have to correct your sillage upwards. Also the durability is not to be believed at the beginning, but it is easily more than 9 hours. This is also a perfect balance, which makes the fragrance never intrusive, but at any time extremely stylish. I really like that, I must say, I find it very artistic
When is the best time to wear it? Rose Orage is a fruity, fresh, floral, but by no means overladen jewel of a fragrance. With its subtle scent characteristics it is certainly versatile. Its floral freshness is made for spring and summer - after all, autumn and winter are not the time for roses. Although it is certainly everywhere else, it definitely does not fit in with the cold season.

Who wears it best? I am still not quite sure whether I would like to enjoy such beauty more on me or on a female person. Although unisex, it does leave a mark on the feminine. Since the rose is not too heavy, the fragrance does not drift too much into the floral-sweetish, but stays fresh, I find it basically wearable for men. And yet - the olfactory spectacle is staged very subtly. The fragrance is beauty, the scent tells a story, but is definitely not a statement. So as a man, he really needs to think more than once about when is the right moment to wear it and whether it might not be too delicate for the type of person wearing it.

Conclusion: I am thrilled. What a lovely rose scent. What a beautiful, delicate, honest and largely unadorned rose. In my opinion, Chabaud has succeeded with Rose Orage in creating a fresh and fruity rose scent that is always lively during its fragrance. Whether he will make it into my collection, I cannot yet say. Whether he can play a role in my everyday life, I am still undecided. Fans of rose fragrances should definitely try it out. Maybe one of you shares my enthusiasm ...
