The flattering honey rose
Quelques Fleurs Royale found its way to me as a free sample in an order. Very curious I immediately rummaged on Parfumo to have a look at the fragrance.
Hmm... Rose, then... and not too close... well, there were no surprises with that name... i would never have chosen it... but well, I always like to try something new No sooner said than done, of course I tested it
Scent:
At the beginning, the citrus and fruity notes are recognizable, but these are immediately accompanied by a strong rose and are not particularly persistent.
Little by little jasmine and tuberose are added, the honey is also very perceptible and plays around the flowers, one almost thinks of candied petals.
The honey gives the fragrance a creaminess that reminds of a rich, rosy body lotion. Definitely an expensive body lotion. I would even have guessed that it contains not only honey but also beeswax, because the scent of honey is very rich, thick, waxy, sweet and creamy The Sillage is not earth-shattering, but in its range it matches the well-groomed body lotion impression.
The flowers smell very natural, almost a bit green-juicy, yet the scent is round and soft and warm, enveloping and cosy.
Vanilla and sandalwood are only accessories and are woven into the background, but here they enhance the warm-sweet feeling of security.
As the fragrance progresses, the musk becomes stronger and stronger, so that the fragrance loses some of its warmth towards the end and becomes cleaner instead.

Conclusion:
I am very glad that this fragrance has found its way to me, because actually Rose belongs to my declared archenemies, at least as far as fragrances are concerned.
In most fragrances I find the rose too artificial, too pungent, too heavy, taking my breath away and over-present.
Quite different with Quelques Fleurs Royale.
For me, the rose makes up the largest part of the flowers to be perceived, but together with the other flowers, it makes up a fresh, natural bouquet.
Due to the sweet honey the flowers are beautifully embedded in a sweet, creamy honey bed, nothing stings, the flowers are soft and smooth, it is really fun to wear this fragrance. For me it is a mood enhancer, it is consistently bright and friendly, like a sunny spring day and so I see it as wearable during the day.
I don't know the old version and I can't judge the changes, but with the current version of Quelques Fleurs Royale you have a neat, creamy, flattering scent to feel good about.

Royal with cheese??
Soo, a new night, a new comment. As usual... tell me, am I writing too many comments? ...no wait, better not tell me. I really write too much, don't I? Oh no, I'm overpresent here, everyone hates me already, waaaah! :( :(

But I can't let all the beautiful samples I get from you loved ones go to waste, can I? On the other hand, I am forced indirectly by YOU to write so much because of the rehearsals! D

Anyway, so we come to a new fragrance,... again... despite this heat... although you probably don't like me *SEUFZ* :DD

Now comes from Houbigant the fragrance Quelques Fleurs Royale and I wish I hadn't seen Pulp Fiction again recently, so when I hear the word Royal I only have to think of "Royal with cheese", which we Europeans say in the burger shop instead of "quarter pounder" :D
And NOW I actually feel like a burger and so... and as so often I decide against it. Not because it would be unhealthy (pffftttt... I don't even think about it :D), but because I can get for about half the price of a menu with a bigger burger and fries a huge and far more satiating kebab, or even a half chicken with fries! And if anyone wonders why I don't cook myself, are you crazy? I can't cook in this heat, especially not if the heat stays above 11 p.m.!! Above all there is less water in the sewers due to the heat, so that the whole place here smells like a single, big pile of shit, booooooaah!!!!! You don't even know how bad this is, especially if you want to ventilate the apartment late at night, when it should get a bit cooler!!! Well, today the weather is rather pleasant, but the heat will surely come back soon *grummel*

The only things that are made at home are simple, but tasty sandwiches... or Nutellabrote, or anything that doesn't produce a fatty smell and would heat up the apartment even more... :D
But enough talk! Back to the fragrance!

The fragrance:
The fragrance begins fresh and sweet with grapefruits and currants, which give off a slightly sweetish-powdery scent, but are quickly replaced by strong jasmine, at least as far as the sweet notes are concerned.
Then there are roses and soft sandalwood and a few swabs of honey, which as always comes across as sweetly delicious, but not as extremely spicy heavy as in some other fragrances. In addition, the honey can be quite quickly no longer perceived.
I like the fact that the citric grapefruit can still be perceived in the heart note for quite some time, even if it should lose some of its intensity. But that keeps the fragrance pretty fresh, apart from that I love grapefruit as a fragrance. At the moment I even have to think about Fanta with grapefruit, because there are some supermarkets with it again and I got it the other day. I think I'll get a pack (6 bottles) on the weekend, no matter how unhealthy this is... as long as you don't exaggerate and I digress again... okay back to the scent.
I still smell fanta... um, I meant grapefruit (he he) and sweet jasmine. The sandalwood becomes a little stronger at the base, but always remains in the background. A light amber is added and I think that this harmonizes well with the grapefruit, because both scents have a "bright" aura. However, the amber disappears quickly and is gradually replaced by the rather "darker" musk, which of course smells just as great.
At the very end, how could it be otherwise :D, the vanilla, which gives off its powdery-sweetish and as so often very beautifully smelling scent. It still smells together with the musk for a while (while all the other scents have faded away by now), so the vanilla even looks a bit clean, which I think is nice. Even later, however, one smells the vanilla only alone and as usual.

The Sillage and the shelf life:
The Sillage is above average, i.e. neither strong nor really weak. For the summer, it's okay.
The shelf life is good, which is of course as so often mainly due to the vanilla, because it still smells for a long time in the base, while all other fragrances have long since faded away! That's why there are at least eight to ten hours in here again.

The bottle:
The bottle is cylindrical, pink and made of frosted glass (or whatever you call this semi-permeable glass!). In addition, it looks as if flower patterns have been worked into the bottle glass, which one can probably also feel haptically. The lid is also cylindrical, gold-plated and continues these flower patterns as an imprint. All in all a very nice bottle.

Soo, I really liked that scent. The beginning is nicely fresh, whereby as described the fragrance still comes across fresh in the middle part because of the surprisingly longer lasting grapefruit. Over time, however, the sweetish notes become more intense, so that the fragrance is not a pure summer fragrance for me (because of the vanilla at the end it is in my opinion even quite unsuitable for the very hot days as we are currently experiencing or have experienced it!), but one could use it besides spring also in autumn.

It fits well as an everyday scent as well as for leisure time, work, going out (and sweet and lovely scent :) or also for... Writing commissioners? Okay, maybe for Kommis write less, because then you should concentrate on the respective fragrance you describe. But Kommis should go and read! He he :DD

In any case, it is a fragrance that should be tried out. Because like I said, I think it smells very nice!

Honeyed flowers
Oh what a find this is! Without looking at the notes, I get delightful light pink flowers with honey-cream sauce drizzled on top. Powdery beauty with a distinct lipstick accord. Longevity is remarkable; at least 5 hours and counting. Projects minimally so one has to get close to be rewarded with its aroma. Guaranteed to smell different than anybody else and absolutely full bottle worthy for me!
