Metallic Pineapple Chunks
The opening of Rossy de Palma smells to me strongly metallic and primarily of some very fruity, unsweetened, tinned pineapple chunks. As the fruity pineapple dies down I get a green, slightly floral, stale vase water that smells similar to raw indole (although raw indole has more a moth ball... Read more

Dreams Delayed
Years ago on a extremely freezing night, in a smoke-filled room by the fire, I inhaled this scent from my arm and swooned. You know what they mean when they say "swooned"? It is when you sigh with extreme pleasure and close your eyes, imagining there is nothing more worthy of your love... Read more
Old Enough to Know Better, but still Too Young to Care...
Rossy de Palma? After Secretions Magnifiques, you KNOW where my mind went...Rosy Palm! :) I had no idea that Rossy was even a real person. Now, after smelling this scent, I feel quite compelled to look her up... This begins so very smoothly, enchanting with the brightness of citrus braided with... Read more

A Gothic, sultry, spicy Spanish Rose!
Etat Libre d'Orange are usually known for making "shocking" or "unconventional" fragrances, they have also made fragrances inspired by "unconventional" celebrities (like British actress Tilda Swinton). Eau de Protection was their first celebrity inspired fragrance.... Read more

Warning: Patchouli
Not being familiar with Rossy de Palma, the woman who inspired this fragrance, I went Googling to ascertain the nature of her celebrity. It turns out that she is a Spanish actress known for her work in the films of Pedro Almodóvar and (please forgive me, Gentle Reader) not exactly an oil... Read more

Bright Rose diminuendos as pepper crescendos...
Etat Libre d'Orange ROSSY DE PALMA opens bright red with a huge, beautiful blast of rose, making this a buy-at-the-counter hit for sure. I imagine that the effect is even more spectacular when this perfume is sprayed rather than dabbed on to the skin. Nearly immediately the rose begins to fade... Read more

You look so beautiful when you are angry...
A rose is a rose is a rose, as Gertrude Stein said. But not all roses are the same. Formerly called Rossy de Palma- Eau de Protection (now just Eau de Protection) is a rose in a temper, a rose with a warning beauty- clothed on a magnificent armour of thorns, that will defend itself with iron at any...

A rose by any other name ...
Mindblowing Rose!!! I have tried more than a few of the Etat Libre d'Orange range of frags and take a filial sort of pride in the fact that the house was started by a fellow South African. I noticed that in a lot of the fragrances, the drydown seemed to be very similar (at least to my nose) and... Read more
