One rose, smoked, please!
The Chopard Malaki series fascinated me immediately with its appearance. Yes, I know they say you shouldn't just be impressed by the looks, but you can't help but admire the wonderful flacons for hours. The Chopard Malaki series consists of the following fragrance series: Amber Malaki, Musk Malaki, Oud Malaki and Rose Malaki. I wanted to buy them all at once, but they're really not that easy to get. Some distant USA-Chopard-watch-shops or not quite lovingly looking Brexit-shops offered 1 to 2 fragrances, but I was not really convinced. With a look to the east, however, this changed quickly. Almost every Arab country from Qatar to Bahrain to the United Arab Emirates offers all 4 fragrances at all airports and various online shops. At very correct prices. Fortunately there is a frequent flyer in my circle of friends and so my Rose Malaki landed with me a few days ago.

The brown-golden packaging with black inscription is very discreet. She lost a punch in the right corner on her long journey (see photo below), but that doesn't bother her visually. The bottle is round, but also octagonal with 8 semicircular sides. You can feel the full glass in your hand like with a precious Ralph Lauren vase. The lid is also round/octagonal and closes with a magnetic closure. The inscription "Chopard Rose Malaki" is only glued on, but I knew that from various forums and was not disappointed, although one suspects rather a small metal plate at first.

The head, heart and base notes are rather close together and you can feel the dominant rose from the beginning. Not a pink summer rose on the dress of a prepubescent teenager but a night rose. A masculine, dark rose with initially a lot of smoke, as if you just lit your Indian incense stick. Shortly thereafter one is transferred to the leather court supplier of the Emirati sultans, where the leather species of the most improbable animals are spread out. The patchouli vanilla finish rounds off this unique fragrance.

Thank you Chopard! I will never be able to buy your (overpriced) watches, but as long as you stay in the perfume business, I will be your loyal customer. The frequent flyer is on his way to the airport again...

An original take ...
I love Roses ... especially middle eastern ones, but give me a Rose fragrance and I am generally happy. I love Cedar too ... so add them together and a fragrance comes into existence that I absolutely have to have. Rose Malaki ticked the boxes enough for me to chance a blind, inflight duty free purchase ... and I couldn't be happier!

Upon initial application, I was a touch disappointed ... the Rose/Saffron combination too reminiscent of so many others in this genre. I suppose that when these two ingredients are used together, the way they combine is so typical that no other olfactory experienced could be reached.
I was sitting there, wafting my arm around in front of my face, waiting for the Oud to appear, which it did not. Instead, a really gorgeous cedar note started making it's way up through what, by now, had become masses of slightly dusty Damascus roses ... lifting them from midday stupor as if the Cedar was the herald of a cool evening.
The thick, velvety Rose petals in combination with a touch of leather create the feeling of soft suede on the skin ... while the whole experience is sweetened ever so slightly by the presence of a little Vanilla.
Rose Malaki is undoubtedly a spicy Rose ... but not in the way one would imagine a spicy fragrance to be. It's almost as if the spice here is carried into the room from afar on a subtle breeze while an open cedar box used to store suede gloves catches petals from a huge arrangement of Roses placed next to it.

I haven't been moved to poetic writing about a fragrance in some time ... this one conjures up very specific pictures in my head, of opulence and luxury, marble balustrades and dusty desert sunsets ... and silk window hangings fluttering gently on spiced breezes.

Try it ... I dare you!!

Pure Class
I am pleasantly surprised by Chopard's latest offerings. Both Oud Malaki and Rose Malaki are well-done and classy. They remain two of my favorite perfumes. Though Rose Malaki is almost exactly like Aramis Calligraphy Rose, there are a few subtle differences which make me want to keep both perfumes in my collection.

Of course, both are Middle Eastern roses with gorgeous bottles. Both open with a strong saffron and rose combination and dry down to a cedarwood finish. The difference is in the pyramid: while Calligraphy Rose quickly takes on a creamy note, Rose Malaki does not become creamy until the very end. Instead, Rose Malaki maintains more of a masculine character throughout the life of the scent with a strong cedarwood and leather note. The life of the perfume is short-lived and the creamy soft drydown appears within half an hour or so. The rose is almost completely gone by that time as well, but that does not bother me.

I like how Rose Malaki opens strong with rose/saffron/cedar and becomes softer at the end. The perfume has a nice sillage but as I said, the longevity is not too great. Even so, it is a pleasure to watch this scent morph as time goes on. I adore it.

Beautiful Saffron & Rose Combo!
Chopard’s Rose Malaki blew me away. It’s mysterious, but not dark, it’s uplifting and not too light, and it’s definitely a unisex fragrance.

The rose and the saffron are stunning in this fragrance. I smell woods in the dry down. I do not smell Oud. This fragrance is different from anything else in my collection. I have over 200 fragrances and this one will make my top 10 list for sure.

My final verdict:
Scent 10/10
Longevity 7/10
Projection 7/10
Sillage 7/10

What a great rose! This one is wrapped in leather and cedar wood chips to give one of the most manly roses to my acknowledgement.
