MISS CHARMING by Juliette Has A Gun
Gloriously beautiful fruity rose! Opens with a mouthwatering explosion of ripe, tart, and fresh wildberries from a new crop just gathered in the fields, fully-ripened litchi, and newly blossoming garden roses in the summertime. Dries down to a clean and subtle musk.
Like biting into a ripe, tart berry at breakfast with the juices popping in your mouth! Then devouring a ripe litchi fruit, and sniffing the fully opened blossoms of red roses on the bush near the breakfast nook! This is no wallflower shy rose! This is a woman full of life, joyously running through a summer meadow laughing in delight at the beautiful day, with delicious wildberries overflowing in her basket, roses woven in her hair, and celebrating the happiness of life itself! I find this perfume to be very jubilant in nature and it makes me smile to wear it!
There is nothing to weigh down the ultra-fresh juicy goodness here. This is totally delicious from the opening through full dry down on my skin. No added sickening sweetness other than that which is naturally found in the ripe plants themselves. No overdone musk, or woods, or spices to cloud the freshness of the fruit or the clarity of the rose. On my skin I get no soapy detergent notes at any stage in development either.
Much richer and fruitier than Paul Smith Rose. Much more berries than Rose 4 Reines. Miss Charming is by no means a soliflore. No nasty patchouli like Lady Vengeance. No heavy musk like Stella. Denser than Chloe Intense with the fruit mélange. Less smooth but much more tartly flirtatious and fun than Fille de Berlin. Not quite as powerful in pure roses as the Montale Highness Rose, but then nothing else is either. Much more rosy clean and fresh than the Bvlgari Rose Essentielle. Far more juicily beautiful on my skin than Rose The One.
All in all, a very unique rose that is opulently fruity and mouthwateringly gorgeous. I have a full bottle and plan to buy more.
I find it hard to tear my nose away from my wrists with this one! Absolute Rose Love here!
