Watery but not aquatic, Open but not radiant...
Coincidentally I was wearing MDCI ROSE DE SIWA last night, and today's episode of my ongoing journey through the seemingly endless house of Rosine happens to feature a perfume which covers some of the same territory: UNE ROSE AU BORD DE LA MER.

To be honest, I put off testing this entry in the Rosine line-up because of the name. I'm not much for aquatic fragrances, so when I see the word 'mer' [sea], I generally steer clear, since it usually means that calone will be looming large, and I seem to be intolerant of that substance to the point where it induces in me a feeling akin to seasickness--appropriately enough.

No such problem here. UNE ROSE AU BORD DE LA MER is indeed a watery rose, but it is not at all aquatic, at least not in the sense meant by that term in modern perfumery. The scent here is both rosey and watery, rather like drops of water on rose petals. There is also an open quality here which, too, reminds me of ROSE DE SIWA. However, there is a difference: the open quality in ROSE DE SIWA is similar to the effect I've perceived in creations such as TERRE D'HERMES and ENCRE NOIRE, which pack such a punch of iso-E-super that they literally clear my sinuses and make it difficult to detect some of the intended notes of the perfume.

In UNE ROSE AU BORD DE LA MER, the rose is front and center and not at all outweighed by "radiance"-making molecules. This is a very natural-smelling, clean and fresh and watery rose scent, without being soapy or aquatic. Another winner from Rosine, I definitely recommend this perfume to anyone who likes MDCI ROSE DE SIWA--and also those who find that composition a touch too "radiant".

Charming Seaside Rose Garden
Gentle roses mingle with the fresh and slightly aquatic notes in this beautiful summer perfume. I am a big fan of rose scents and this lovely interpretation of the rose reminds me of a charming rose garden by the ocean on a hot day. The scent is natural and pretty, like sunshine sparkles on the blue waves. It embodies the feeling of being on seashore while holding a big fragrant bouquet of roses with the fresh wind in my hair, sunshine and warm sand between my toes.

What I like about the composition is how well-balanced and natural the scent is. It is only slightly aquatic which complements the rose perfectly. The illusion of the seaside is created by fresh citrus notes in the opening mixed with the gentle rose scent and just a hint of marine notes. The rose is of course the centre of the show and the scent gets rosy in the heart complimented by the sweetness from immortelle. It is immortelle that creates in the heart notes this feeling of hot sand for me. The scent still remains light and fresh despite the sweetness from the rose and immortelle. I like a lot the fresh softness of the scent. In the dry down, the scent becomes musky but it still maintains its lovely rose’s structure. The sillage and longevity are average (4-5 hours).

This lovely slightly aquatic rose scent is perfect for summer. I especially love how this scent opens up in hot and humid weather.
