Powerhouse Rose
With more longevity than its younger sister (Fleurs de Bulgare - Creed), FLEUR de THE ROSE BULGARE is a powerhouse rose fragrance that manages to bloom on your skin *without* turning to powder or candy, nor drying into an elderly woman potpourri of "no."

Breathtaking on clothes, on skin, in your hair, on your silk scarves. It projects and lasts without ever being offensive. Step into a car full of women heading off to "Ladies night," and everyone wants to know what you're wearing. Just absolutely breathtaking, true, and real.

The woman who wears FLEUR DE THE ROSE BULGARE is all woman, powerful and always authentic, real and honest, with wisdom and wit, but with a soft underside and kind heart. She tells it like it is, managing somehow not to offend anyone. She's someone you want on your team for life.

I liked this parfume. Easy to wear, fresh at the beginning, later very flowery, full of roses (what a surprise), but still an almost fragile scent.
Unfortunately this is not my cup of tea, Fleur de Thé Rose Bulgare is too translucent for my taste and even after trying it again and again - no memories left about it in my mind, I can not recall anything from this scent. Did I write unfortunately? If I am thinking of my wallet, I believe it is rather fortune.

'Roses are red, my love ...'
The title of this review comes from an old Bobby Vinton song that I can't help remembering when I spray a rose fragrance. Indeed, when one talks of Roses the first color that comes to mind is Red ... Red for passion, Red for romance.

With thought provoking names like 'Black Magic', 'Crimson Glory' and 'Lasting Love', the hybrid Tea Rose holds sway as the most popular flower on Earth. Creed's offering unfortunately sparks very little 'red' passion in me but rather takes me on a journey into a softly scented country garden ... it's more pink and white ... but nevertheless a very pretty natural Rose.
There is a tea rose called Diana, Princess of Wales with frosty pink/cream flowers ... Fleur de Thé Rose Bulgare leads my nose in this direction ... despite it ostensibly having been made for the wife of an American President :) … perhaps said wife aspired to Royalty!
When it comes to Tea Rose fragrances, there is very little difference between them in the multitude of what is available. As an exercise for the purpose of this review, I am wearing this Creed offering on one arm and vintage Perfumer's Workshop Tea Rose on the other. Common accords between the two are Bergamot, Amber and of course Rose, but the addition of Sandalwood in PWTR renders the fragrance fuller and more 'complete' ... while the blatant 'Tea' note in FdTRB causes a dried out 'potpourri' feeling, producing a dated effect. A touch of Tuberose in the PW version brings a soft creaminess to the composition ... while the Creed comes across as fairly bitter. Both are ultimately linear Rose fragrances ... I do, however, find myself enjoying Tea Rose more than Fleur de Thé Rose Bulgare. I'm probably biased as I wear PWTR a lot ...
Ultimately, it becomes a fiscal issue with the Creed being exponentially pricier and much harder to find. I really don't see the need to fork out big money when Perfumer's Workshop Tea Rose does a brilliant job of being a Rose soliflore.

A great big thanks to Mia von Trost for including this Creed for me to try in a recent sample swap!! Vielen dank!!
