5 of the best modern rose scents
Rose gets a bad rap in the perfume world. Often labelled old-fashioned and overpowering, we’ve come to think of it as a better fragrant fit for our grandma’s scent wardrobe than our own. And whilst we’re all about roses in bouquet form, once the buds are bottled they rarely make it off the shelf thanks to their less-than-chic reputation. But roses are a little like a great handbag: they’re an investment piece where the dollar value does make a pretty sizable difference in the calibre of the finished product – roses have to be done right. This edit of rose drops are all a decadent departure from the powdery vibes you’d expect, and they prove that leather, wood and vetiver aren’t the only cool-girl colognes out there. It’s time to reconsider rose – we guarantee you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
