Rouge is not red like joy, Rouge is an extremely dressed up, older, sad lady from a cabaret, faked optimism and wasted youth. Nice anyway!

Warm elegance
This is a fragrance that has it all. The phases are all beautiful, the strength is indisputable and the depth is magical. You are swallowed by this; brought to a distant place and not bothering; embraced and feeling safe. I recognise that this COULD be considered as a seductive scent, but to me it is warm and open, a bit mystical so it leaves you inttrigued and puzzled. You want more!
Unfortunately, I only have a sample of this. I would like to have a 100ml bottle and 3 extras in my stash. That would make me feel safe. This is definitely a winner.

The Lady in Red...
Rouge by Hermès is an intriguing and complex scent. This is the old, "classic" Hermès, not the "current" Hermès of Jean-Claude Ellena and recent years. This is a perfume which is thirty years old (originally created in 1984 as "Parfum d'Hermès", then re-formulated as "Hermès Rouge" in 2000). Having said that, I don't find it old at all... or even mature. To me, this perfume represents a beautiful young lady wearing a red dress.

I would call it beautiful and seductive, but in a very "grown-up" way, this isn't for any teenage girls, this is for a young, successful & attractive woman. Someone who is in control, but who still knows she is beautiful.

It's a complex fragrance to describe. Essentially it's a combination between Rose, Sandalwood, Ylang-Ylang and powdery Orris, with a touch of spices and Aldehydes. It is almost "dusty" at first, but becomes very smooth later as the Sandalwood and Vanilla take over in the dry-down. I also detect a wonderful note which I love, Myrtle, a fresh, Jasmine-like powdery note which I enjoy smelling... and which gives the fragrance projection. To me, Rouge actually smells similar to Samsara by Guerlain, but this is slightly more formal in my opinion.

It's grown-up fragrance for sure, but not "old". The woman who wears this is in control. Beautiful and seductive, but in control of the situation around her. I call this "the lady in the red dress". Beautiful and intelligent, and a little dangerous (in a seductive kind of way). This also smells of luxury, elegance and class (after all, that is what Hermès is known for as a brand). So you would expect a woman who smells like this to have money... A lot of money.

Overall, I think Rouge is very in-control and seductive, and would be a great one to wear to formal events (men dressed in dark suits, the women with gold bracelets, pearl necklaces, in a party with caviar and champagne cocktails - remember this was originally created in the 1980's... where "style" was big and elegant)! Because of this, it can be loud and strong (people can notice you)... but if you spray a little, I think it can work in any situation, and it's warm enough to be worn casually, but in small quantities. A warm, spicy, almost aristocratic fragrance, but which also has some surprises (by also being slightly seductive). Maybe not something for a very young woman, but someone with enough experience and intelligence can definitely wear it. Ruby red elegance in a bottle!

Feminine woody rose. One spray, mist walk-through. Lives 24+ hours, reactivates with water. More wearable & less suffocating than Samsara.+3
