Oakmoss and Roses
Une Folie De Rose is to me a very airy, almost warm, green rose. I picture an orange-red rose covered in morning dew, in the middle of a forest by the foot of a mountain.

It opens woody, almost immediately followed by a blast of mature roses. There's a heaviness to it right from the start that lends a dark edge to its otherwise sweet demeanor. There's something that's almost like a wetness from the oakmoss that peeps through.

The green in this just keeps building as it goes on, but never overpowers the rose. In a way, it's like they were back-up dancers to the rose. Somewhere along the line, the blend of ylang-ylang and jasmine and tea almost reminds me of lime.

Finally it settles into a pleasant, woody rose with prominent oakmoss and patchouli (which is reminiscent of L'Arte di Gucci). Some of the sweetness is still there, but at this stage, it is as green as it gets with a hint of darkness, kind of as if the aforementioned forest is now steeped in night. There's a wetness to it in a mildly earthy manner.

I really enjoyed this. For lack of a better description, it's a chypre that evokes a sense of humility and raw, comforting beauty. I haven't tried too many chypre roses, but I know there are more interesting ones out there. Nevertheless, this is worth a try.

Sillage wasn't too prominent, but not entirely unnoticeable. Longevity was pretty decent - almost 6 hours on me.

A Gothic Rose
Les parfums de Rosine UNE FOLIE DE ROSE has a slightly dark and dirty, oakmossy edge. The rose petals seems somehow black around the edges in this perfume, imparting a distinctly gothic feeling to the composition as a whole. I would describe the overall effect as somewhere between a floralized light leather and a rose chypre. Apparently there is no intended leather note in this perfume, but to my nose the composition has a quasi-leatherized facet.

UNE FOLIE DE ROSE is a fairly linear creation and because it is somewhat heavy, it seems best suited for colder weather.

long lasting
The opening was very strong and had a quick die-down to heart notes. The heart notes are pure rose and musk on me. The base notes are a livid oakmoss and patchouli. This has a long lasting power!
