Sticky Rose
Another big nose, the same beautiful bottle, and this member of the Yves Rocher Secrets d'Essences series, ROSE ABSOLUE, strikes me as similar to TENDRE JASMIN in other respects as well. Here, too, I feel that there is a hard core of a high-quality perfume which has been mixed into the Yves Rocher house base, producing a perfume which intermittently reveals the scent of beautiful rose, but only in tiny wafts.

At one point during today's wearing, it occurred to me that this might be a small amount of The Different Company ROSE POIVREE diluted in the Yves Rocher house base. Since I don't really like ROSE POIVREE, that may not sound like a compliment, but it ends up being a more wearable perfume for me because the spices have been moderated by the base in this case.

Cinnamon is listed for ROSE ABSOLUE, not cumin (as I detect in ROSE POIVREE), but there also seems to be some source of piquancy--perhaps pink pepper? In any case, the blend is certainly nice enough, provided that one is friends with the Yves Rocher base. True niche rose perfume snobs will probably not like this at all. When I think about the difference between ROSE ABSOLUE and, say, Keiko Mecheri ATTAR DE ROSES or MOGADOR or Creed ROSES DE BULGARIE or Guerlain CHAMADE or NAHEMA or Ineke BRIAR ROSE, the Yves Rocher seems almost laughable.

Almost, but not quite, because ROSE ABSOLUE is A LOT better than most mainstream designer "rose" perfumes, many of which pack a mighty punch of peony and some of which feature no rose whatsoever. So my evaluation is relative: for people who ordinarily wear mainstream designer pink fragrances, ROSE ABSOLUE would be a definite step up the perfume ladder, since it is no more sweet than most of those, and there is a central core of a good perfume swimming amidst the sticky Yves Rocher base.

Whether a perfumista likes this creation is going to turn entirely on his/her compatibility with the base. If you have tried one or more of the other members of the Secrets d'Essence series and were not bothered by the base, then you are apt to like this one too. If not, not. These are among the best perfumes made by Yves Rocher, but the base connects the members of this particular series in a very noticeable way.
