Strong - VERY strong - Rose
Molinard Rose deserves an honorable mention among all rose soliflores I’ve tried. It’s a dominant tea rose which is intensified by another floral note (carnation by looking at the notes pyramid.) I couldn't tell by just smelling it however; it is very well blended. I don’t particularly get any woody notes in the dry down. Just a pink rose - from top to bottom - albeit super strong, with a green freshness to it all the way. With only 2 sprays on either side of the neck, this perfume flaunts outstanding projection and lasting power by drifting 3 steps ahead of you for 12+ hours. I see it as a versatile fragrance that can be worn either casually or for a special occasion depending on the mood & personality of the wearer. Most soliflores don’t stand out as remarkably unique scents IMHO; they rather serve to satiate the personal appeal of the wearer. This charming little number, however, just might be special enough to be a signature to a rose/floral lover. Recommended!
