Roger and Gallet Rose Imaginaire

When I was a little girl I used to gather the roses from my garden and try to create a wonderful perfume, when in reality it would just smell like decaying vegetation.  After all I didn't have 150 years experience in creating perfumes that Roger & Gallet have.

What is wonderful about Roger and Gallet (besides their 150 years experience) is there is something vintage and chic about the brand and the packaging, it's not going to end up in every Christmas stocking, they are not a brand that is flooding the market sitting on every shelf from Boots to Tesco.  They are a brand that fragrance lovers will adore, and also appreciate the fact that you have bought something different.

For Rose Imaginaire R & G have decided their bottle should look like the blush of a rose, and who wouldn't love a rose tinted bottle.  What I love about the fragrance (besides it being that little bit different that when people smell it on you they can't place it, don't you love that you wouldn't smell like a mass market fragrance?), it's not overpowering being a "Fresh Fragrant Water", it's simple and classy with vintage looking packaging.

Head notes include wild strawberry from Italy as well as mandarin from Italy creating refreshing and juicy notes, these notes represent the delicate rosebud with fruity freshness. Middle notes include jasmine from Egypt and violets from the Nile bringing the fragrance to a sweeter place. Base notes have patchouli from Indonesia and sandalwood from Oceania which brings warmth and a natural sexiness to the fragrance. The base notes represent the bewitching and timeless rose in full bloom.

As you will have noted the fragrance also takes us on a journey, from the fruitiness of Italy to the sweet delicate scents of Egypt and finally to rich patchouli in Indonesia. 

Besides my childhood dreams of creating a fragrance from my rose garden (while avoiding greenflies) as an adult I haven't been that interested in rose scents, or flowery scents in general but R & G create a different kind of fragrance - one that is chic and individual, and something that I think would make a wonderful Christmas present.

Rose Imaginaire vapouriser 100ml costs €39.75 which is a brill price and is available in select pharmacies.

  1. Great blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?
    I'm planning to start my own site soon but I'm a little lost on everything.

    Would you recommend starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option?
    There are so many options out there that I'm totally confused .. Any suggestions? Thanks!
