Lustre (NKNN)
• HIRAM GREEN LUSTRE •

I love me some rose, so I was excited to try this one, after being blown away by Hyde, Voyage & Slowdive. Hiram Green is an exciting house and this one is no different, although I would much prefer Lustre on women.

The rose here is complex. The scent is bright, especially in the opening, but it has depth and mature quality to it. To me, it's as if the rose itself isn't bright, but the supporting notes create that feeling. There's a sharp, acidic, oily edge, but the rose at the center is almost indolic and there's a metallic tinge as well. Somehow all those facets are contained well enough to not make the overall composition too harsh or challenging. The acidity from the citrus is very prominent and it takes quite a while for the rose to really overpower it. All the while there's a bit of green to it, that could even be considered vegetal. It smells true to life and at the same time artistic. The texture remains more liquid or oily; there is a powdery element, but not overwhelming (and not musky in the drydown at all). There's not a lot of warmth to it either, so this is suitable to wear year round. Lustre isn't the easiest rose to wear and I'd say more suitable for a matured taste, but lovely nonetheless.

This comes closest to Frederic Malle's Une Rose, or at least the rose note. Lustre isn't as opulent or even sophisticated as Une Rose, it's more modern and artisic, where's the Malle reminds me of a classic perfume. Une Rose is more musky and has a booziness to it that I wouldn't attribute to the rose being indolic, but they fall into the same subset of rose fragrances, with a slight preference to Lustre for me •

Rose, nothing but Rose
Most of the so-called rose scents do not smell of rose. With Lustre it's different. A radiant, 100% natural rose, just a little supported with few, barely noticeable other notes. The citrus note is of the kind that many damask roses have in nature. A little gentle incense is added at the end. Otherwise, the fragrance is completely linear, simply rose all the time. You have to want that, otherwise it gets boring. The whole thing is intense, sunny, airy and silky. Durability over 6 hours (and that with 100% natural materials).

After a sharp fresh-citric opening, this linear Summer fragrance settles to a green powdery-floral base. Sadly lacks depth. Very feminine.

This is a beautiful natural longstaying Rose scent. Subtile in its development. Being a non-Rose-lover I can recommend anyone to try!
