Rosy Dill Pickle
I’m guessing it’s the vetiver, but this perfume smells great in the bottle but terrible on me. I literally smell like a rosy pickle. It’s sharp and tangy, not even slightly enjoyable. I’m sad because I had hoped this would be a great scent for me.
Longevity about 8 hours, still fading after that.
Price point is high. Sillage about 16 inches or so.

"Just" beautiful, but not convincing. Why did they "modernize" him?????
The "old" "Elisabethan Rose" is still in my nose memory. A few years ago, Parfümerie L. was the only perfumery in my area that still had it (of course I tested it extensively), but then it disappeared before I decided to buy me a small bottle of it.
Now it suddenly reappears from the "sinking" (my innermost called "joy!!!").
But during the testing I had to find something that made me snort with rage in the first moment. It's not the scent like I know it anymore. The roses are thickly egg-sweet and now have a sticky icing sugar layer with nut and almond aroma, which rather fits to an "English rose cake". By the way, are there really, pastry with rose water and different flavors, depending on the recipe.
I completely miss the pithy country rose with almost bitter floweriness, much "spice" and green echo.
Only from time to time does she still flash out, in moments of light in which the gourmand layer withdraws somewhat. But far too little to convince me. Well, I am not closed to all innovations now, but since I still know the "original scent", I am not happy about THIS reformulation. As a fragrance company, I think you should be smart enough not to reformulate a good, established fragrance, but to let it exist as such.
To create instead a second, just modified fragrance as an extension.
Then all preferences have their justification.
The new "Elisabethan Rose" is "only good" for me, but it doesn't convince me anymore.
I usually don't want to make a scent bad, because the tastes are very different. This criticism applies only to the house "Penhaligon's, because it has taken lovers of originals a great fragrance, instead of complementing it....
