If you're getting lost in the vast portfolio of Serge Lutens, just remember that Rousse is the cinnamon one. I like cinnamon but also I'm not too crazy for it. However, if cinnamon smelled just like this, it could well become my favorite spice. Rousse is far from being just a "cinnamon scent". It is a warm spicy oriental that screams Christmas time in my head. Scent itself doesn't scream, it's calm and elegant, definitely not heavy. It is also not too sweet or gourmand. Cinnamon here is rather bitter-sweet, gives an edible vibe but you won't feel with it like a walking cake:) Rousse isn't a regular in my rotation but it's a reference scent, a must-stay in the collection.
