Les Parfums de Rosine Rose d’Ete Eau Fraiche ~ new perfume

Rosine Rose d'Ete Eau Fraiche fragranceLes Parfums de Rosine has launched Rose d'Eté Eau Fraîche, a lighter version of their popular Rose d'Eté fragrance:

The smell of the yellow roses is bursting under the sun, and meets the scents of lime-tree flowers and fresh cut grass. The result is an unbelievable accord, luminous, fresh and light.

Slight changes have been brought to Rose d’Eté fragrance: the top note is fresher and the hesperidic aspect has been enhanced by citrus, tangerine and a touch of pear. The heart is still sunny with lime tree flowers and lotus, with beautiful rose essence and rose absolue. The background is sustained by musk and ambrette seeds.

Additional notes include mimosa.

Les Parfums de Rosine Rose d’Eté Eau Fraîche is formulated with less alcohol, and will be available in 100 ml through September. It can be found now at First in Fragrance in Germany. (via les-parfums-de-rosine)

    Meh, just tried the original Rose d'Ete and it's melons up to the heavens. Just can't deal with the melons. I wonder if the new mimosa note is going to take the place of melons, the original is rather nice, airy and fresh, but ugh that cloying melon note ruins everything.

    Is it melon-y? It's been ages since I tried it and don't remember. I do remember that I liked 06130 Yuzu Rouge better for citrus + rose.

    Robin, I keep meaning to write you and say that when I was in Barney's recently, they told me that Ecume de Rose had been discontinued and they would no longer be carrying it. I panicked a bit, and then checked in with Aedes, who had plenty of bottles in stock (one of which is now mine). They told me it was still being made, but only in France. But when I asked them whether or not that meant they would continue to carry it they sort of shrugged and got cagey. “For a long time we didn't have any, and then we got a shipment.” (??) At any rate, it doesn't seem worth wailing about quite yet, but I wondered if you'd heard anything. I know it's one of your favorites.

    Ohh, that's not good.

    I've learned that when SA's say that dreaded “didn't have any and then we got a shipment” is a bad phrase to hear.

    You know, the Rosine line is getting really large, and the $, as we all know, is in the toilet. So it is not surprising if like many other brands, they are no longer planning to export their whole line to the US.

    My last bottle of Ecume has not held up well. I thought about replacing it, but decided not to — I have too many bottles already and don't want to take a chance that the next bottle will not stay fresh.

    Ah, that's good to know, thanks Robin. I'll be sure to give mine a good work out this summer and share generously. I just couldn't bear to think I wouldn't have any at all for the next six months of Texas heat. (I was in Barney's in the first place to replace my spent decant.)

    You know, maybe I was just unlucky, who knows? But it isn't a scent I'd hoard.
