Wow, it's been a while since I've posted a fragrance review, so here we go. Sorry if it's a little bumpy
Amazing that this is the first review of the fragrance.

The present fragrance Rose Berberanza comes from the exclusive Maison line Lancômes and is available in 100 ml at 220 Euro RRP. The bottle is made of glass and has a rose-golden metal plate on the back with a rose pattern punched out of it so that we can see it through the reddish liquid. The lid is magnetic and golden. The outer packaging is matt white and a structured label on the front picks up the rose gold metal plate. All in all, the packaging appears high-quality and quite noble, but not nearly as noble as the price contenders from Guerlain.

Now for the fragrance itself. He starts with a punch. We're hearing a fairly generic rose jam-vanilla-berry syrup conglomerate. Smells like it all the time-- Mancera Rose Vanilla, Tresor Nuit à la Folie and assorted. Hyperfeminine, very sweet, but also easy to forget. At the same time, pistachio strikes us with concentrated power in juxtaposition. In this constellation she appears very harsh, out of place, almost stinky - something that is often and gladly noted by users on various platforms. Nevertheless, the aforementioned stinky note manages to get the scent out of the beautifully sweet and forgotten corner and provides a welcome edge.

As the fragrance progresses, rose and pistachio withdraw noticeably and the scent becomes more harmonious; the notes stand side by side, no longer against each other. The pistachio no longer pushes itself into the foreground, but rather catches the sweet notes behind and forms a successful, stylish grounding. In my opinion it has a similar effect to a musk or wood base - depth and dimension.

The fragrance is, as usual for the Maison line, very long-lasting, but has a much greater projection than the other semi-floral of the range.

Besides Montale's Intense Café, in my opinion the best fragrance in this theme.

Pistachio! And yet another rose-patchouli-oud...
I at first smelt Parfait de Roses and Roses Berberanza together at a Lancôme counter, before testing them more thouroughly one after another. According to Lancôme, these two rose fragrances showcase two different types of roses in perfumery: Rose Centifolia and Rose Damascena, respectively. Smelling them side by side, the two roses contrast each other like light and shadow, and I think Lancôme did succeed in hightlighting certain special characteristics of these two different types of roses.

Roses Berberanza is significantly darker than Parfait de Roses as a whole, but its opening has a very interesting creamy, even buttery feeling around the ruby rose that really evokes the rich aftertaste of pistachio! After about 20 minutes, Roses Berberanza soon proceeds to turn dark purple by wrapping the damask rose with oud and patchouli in order to highlight its spicy, fruity tart and green aspects. Sadly, on me, Roses Berberanza seems to favour thoughtless hard punch than taking time to adjust the subtle nuances. The end results is a rather generic commercial rose-patchouli-oud accord, with an intense, purple, gooey plum-like fruitchouli over a the ubiquitous raspberry rose-oud combination.

At least the late dry down has the last saving grace, with the rose becomes more and more tart to cut through the intense rose-patchouli-oud accord, as if the rose sacrificed itself to shed its wilted petals into the saccharine darkness with a moderate result. The sillage is quite heavy throughout its developement, while the longevity is around 10 hours on my skin.

Personally, I was fascinated by the initial pistachio impression! But the main body of Roses Berberanza, the conventional, clumsy rose-patchouli-oud accord, left me utterly uninspired. Like the other offerings from this exclusive range of Lancôme, I would recommend giving it a try based on the interesting and evocative opening of pistachio,but I would also suggest against a blind buy especially to those who are not enamoured with ubiquitous fruitchouli and faux "rose-oud" in commercial western fragrances.

This perfume starts very strong as a very sweet rose- jammy. Then it settles to an okay rose scent that lasts throughout the day.

Huge dessert rose(/pistachio/vanilla/oud). Easy to love as only the luckiest people are, but if you need your romance Byronic, not for you.
