5 Minute Review: Les Parfums de Rosine Ecume de Rose

Today, I am wearing Ecume de Rose, a generous sample from the lovely CourtD from MakeupAlley. This is my 5 minute impression, written a few months ago: Ecume de Rose by Les Parfums de Rosine means quite literally "rose foam," but we will stick with the French pronunciation since it fits this fragrance so beautifully. An ode to roses, this complex scent wraps its wearer oh so lightly in a rose-scented veil. The top notes of tart blackcurrant leaves and green water lilies set the stage strongly, evoking images of sunlight, beaches and gardens. As the heart of the scent shines through and the beauty of dune roses delicately make their appearance, the unexpected notes of strawflowers and St. John's Wort keep the fragrance from overwhelming its wearer. At the base, vetiver, amber and white musk ever so slightly add warmth to this fragrance, making it unlike any other rose scent. Indeed, this is the scent of garden strolls, straw hats and frilly sundresses. I find myself wanting to go to the beach with this lovely, light veil.

I too enjoy the Rosines very much, Chayaruchama. I haven't met one I didn't like, yet.

Hi I just found this page and was surprised because my painting of the Beach Roses is being used with the description of your parfum....
Someone took it off my website without me knowing...

Jo-Ann Coretti,

Please accept my sincerest apologies. Your artwork is beautiful! I in no way intended to infringe on your website rights and the photo has been removed. We google search some of our images and apparently, in this case, we used a photo that describes the fragrance beautifully but that was not approved for use here. Again, my apologies.

Best regards,
Tamara
