Chipre and aldehidic rose
Ballet rouges is an amazing cchypre and aldehidic floral perfume. The main note for me is the rose with the Moss, making a Green floral scent which brights with the aldehides geting a bit his typical soapy vibe. It is a bit spicy for me as Well, with something plastic in the base. The musk gives to the fragance a very good longevity.
The sillage is good also on my skin. It projects quité good and i can feel It on myself most of the time. I think the perfume is unisex because It goes on the línea more or less of perfumes like eau du soir by sisley, superstitious by Frederic Malle or noir de noir by Tom Ford.
I dont know if i would wear this smell confortable because this is not really mu cup of tea, but i must say that the quality and the performance is very good, as in the other olympic orchids perfumes i have tried. I think is perfect for daytime use un summer or spring.

Sleeping Beauty became Aurora
Fragrance samples from Yatagan are always something special; whether they reach me directly or by detours, it does not matter.
Those who took the detour only show: they should come to me!

Ballets Rouges" is also exceptional: a rose scent with the sensual spice of a racy woman "Sleeping Beauty" in this fragrance has outgrown the pink delicacy of the May rose: "Princess Aurora" dances in dark rose red in a different class.

Heavy sensual-red rose scents float as a dominant element through this scent fabric.
Aldehydes set beacons in these dark clouds that dominate the fragrance stage from the first moment.
The addition of the two fresh components bergamot and tangerine is a little strange to me here as well; even in red this may not be commonplace.
To my mind, this fruit acid, as welcome as it may be to some, etches small holes in the voluminous, densely woven curtain of scent; the flickering of the aldehydes is also somewhat disturbed.
On the other hand, thyme spice now fits perfectly into this fragrance composition again.
The so-called "May rose", also called "cinnamon rose" because of the colour of its bark, belongs to the family of wild roses; its rich golden faces surrounded by five pink petals radiate with their scent In the past, this type of rose could be found in large fields around Grasse. She also played a role when Grasse was called "the perfume city" After their cultivated areas were concreted over in the name of money and occupied with expensive real estate, a not inconsiderable number of "rose vintners" have recently been found again who are successfully working on the comeback of this scented rose.
She is beautiful, this delicate rose - she corresponds to our "Sleeping Beauty" in terms of her scent: just as we imagine it: "Sleeping Beauty was a beautiful child!"
A beautiful child that her prince - as is well known, he has tried thorns - took her to other rose gardens.
Here the woman, who in innocent pink as "Sleeping Beauty" performed her pirouettes on the stage of her still young life, became a mature, charming woman.
This mature sensual eroticism wafts through a rose scent that pays homage to women who have already left their innocence behind for a few years.
Dark red velvety, changing to black, these noble roses entice and seduce with sometimes even enormous wafts of scent - dark red mists float around the wearer of this fragrance.
Ylang Ylang flows through with light yellow streams of light, deepens the fragrance with its special flower aroma.
This woman no longer dances in delicate rosé; she captivates with her great presence in bright red. With big and yet elegant steps she draws her own circles on the stage of this fragrance picture.
Princess Aurora generally appears in red shoes and also lives up to her name in "Ballets Rouges": the dawn of the roses is pervaded by a ylang-ylang yellow glow.
This strong feminine rose scent gets its strongly spicy maturity from oakmoss and labdanum, which should accompany sensuality so naturally.
Musk pulls a soft cuddle layer over the easily existing small spines, which belong to roses and also Labdanum scratches a little bit as is well known.
As the highlight of this fragrant work of art, Aphrodite, here completely in her element, draws a golden brown net of patchouli over this beauty.
Now all mature, rich scents whirl with their full art of seduction in an opulent round dance over these "boards of the fragrance dance".
Applause does not demand it, this blooming rose woman - she is fully aware of her value.
Precisely because she knows about this opulence, which distinguishes princess Aurora from Sleeping Beauty!

Just as heavy, precious red wine leaves streaks in the glass; so "Ballets Rouges" leaves vivid traces of the scent of roses for many hours.
This fragrance is not uncomplicated, rosy and light: it wants to conquer and be conquered at the same time!
And plays for me in a league of its own - in the "Champions League" of rose scents!

A friendly rose chypre. Green and upbeat before entering a sultry, spicy drydown.
