Succulent, romantic, alluring rose

Tous Rosa is a breath of fresh rosy air. It's rich but not overpowering and has a sparkling quality about it.

Right off the bat, rose makes a deliciously succulent entrance that to me, is very reminiscent of Carolina Herrera's 212 Rose. But this has a more delicate texture, that seems to swing between light and mildly heavy. As it progresses, it only gets juicier and juicier, but quite alluring, which I will attribute to musk and something like a woody note. Rosa then ends on a musky skin scent which is still oddly attractive (I don't find skin scents very attractive).

Yes, it is sweet, but not cloying. It wears like a young lady who is just beginning to leave her mark in the world, in a big and powerful, yet soothingly feminine manner. Romantic is actually a pretty good word to describe Tous Rosa.

Overall, very elegant, very feminine, and incredibly lovely. This goes straight to the Wish List. It is at the end of winter that I am testing this, but I imagine it would blossom well in warmer weather.

Longevity: A little longer than 7 hours
Sillage: Pretty decent. About arm's length is right.

Nirvana White (Eau de Parfum) Feminine musky rose
I should begin this review by saying that this was love at first sniff for me. From the nozzle of the manufacturer's sample, this smelled almost smoky, which made me hesitate to try it, but on the skin it translates to a beautiful musky rose....
