Eve in the Garden of Roses
The story goes that Francois Coty, unable to get stores to carry his company' first fragrance, accidentally dropped (broke) a bottle in a department store and the hub-bub that ensued in response to the scent caused the department store to place an order. Not long after, he became France's first millionaire. I would have clamored for this, too. Mine is the reissue, I think, but it's still a truly beautiful rose, strong without being loud. It develops and grows more pleasing as the base joins the roses. I smell amber, I think, a citrus, probably bergamot, and perhaps sandalwood . Pretty sure there's no civet, maybe a musk. Comparing it to Une Rose, my reigning queen of rose scents, and Tea Rose (the queen mother), this is a more subtle and sophisticated perfume. It doesn't have the "reality" that those two lovelies do, but it's prettier in a way -- a Monet painting, rather than the garden itself. Coty's pioneering use of synthetics is probably the cause, also lending an intensity and volume women hadn't encountered before. Of course, Une Rose has far outdone him in that respect. Tea Rose too. Still I rank La Rose Jacqueminot with them--Eve in perfumery's rose garden.

p.s. After wearing it on two different days I do think there may be the subtlest hint of civet here. It's such an exceptionally well-blended fragrance, individual notes are hard to pick out--except, of course, the beautiful rose.
