Here’s the first review I’ve seen of the new Frederic Malle rose scent called Portrait of a Lady. It’s by Dominique Ropion and the listed notes are Turkish rose, cassis, raspberry, cinnamon, clove, patchouli, sandalwood, incense, Ambroxan, and white musks. Sounds interesting!
The last rose/patch scent I fell in love with was Francis Kurkdjian’s Lumiere Noire Pour Femme, which is gorgeous to me. I really need to sample the new Francis Kurkdjian Absolue Pour le Soir; Ida posts a tempting review here. I haven’t fallen for many new releases this year, but I have high hopes for this new FK.
Just thought I’d mention these items for my fellow rose lovers. I apologize for not keeping up with the blog as much lately. I’ll have another update this weekend.
