  1. Is it unisex?

    • pyramus says:

      Nearly all Lutens scents skew unisex, so I’m betting yes.

      • Robin says:

        I don’t think they give gender classifications to them anyway, regardless of how people perceive them.

  2. elise says:

    yay! can’t wait! wearing jeux de peau today…Serge is a master!

  3. Lys says:

    I can wear any Lutens in which amber isn’t listed as a note. Seriously. Looking forward to trying this rose!

    • Robin says:

      Hard to be sure of since they never list notes, so good luck!

      • Lys says:

        I have a few places I go to get the notes post-release, if it says amber, it’s a no go. But pre-release I can get excited with the caveat that I might not even be able to wear it.

    Just please…no cedar drydown. So sick of that note with SL

  5. ladymurasaki says:

    I am so looking forward to this one. It’s supposed to have a peppery note.

  6. Omega says:

    Love the idea of a peppery rose..I wasn’t a fan of Sa Majesite La Rose, the only rose I’ve tried from SL. I hope this is much better. If not, someone else should do rose and pepper and have it smell amazing! I haven’t had much luck with the SLs I’ve tried so far. I only like Feminite Du Bois so far out of several I’ve tried. Miel de Bois smelled like pet cages at the pet store, LOL.

    • Abyss says:

      OJ Ta’if is a peppery rose. It’s pretty nice too, as far as roses go, anyway.

      • Omega says:

        I will check it out! Thanks!

    • annemarie says:

      It’s hard to get, but Baie Rose 26 by Le Labo is a genuine peppery rose. BR26 is only sold in Chicago but there is a split open at the moment on Facebook Fragrance Friends.

      Le Labo’s Rose 31 is a bit peppery, but also very cumin-y. Caron’s Parfum Sacre is another option, more spicey than peppery to my nose, and I find the rose a bit sour.

      And yes, Ormonde Jayne’s Ta’if. I don’t love it myself but it has many fans.

      • Omega says:

        Le Labo seems to musky and the freesia in the OJ may be a setback for me but still may check that one out.

  7. Abyss says:

    Not feeling the excitement here.

    • Lys says:

      Peppery rose just screams boring. And metallic rose screams Rossy de Palma.

    • Marjorie Rose says:

      I get that. I will always give a new SL a sniff, but they are very hit and miss for me.

  8. Jewel says:

    I wish I could get some Rosarium! Now, *that* was a ROSE perfume to die for!
