Rose 31

'Rose 31' by Le Labo

When it comes to fragrances, the only ones I typically gravitate towards are those with sweet and floral notes. However, what I love about 'Rose 31' by Le Labo is that each spritz delivers a spiced woodsy note that's warm and inviting. There's a hint of rose in it which is light and refreshing, but it is also subtle enough that this fragrance can be worn by both men and women. It's a mix of feminine and masculine and is more dark than innocent. I dislike anything that is too musky and overpowering, but this one is just balanced and perfect. If I were to describe it, it would be something like dark and romantic. I was immediately drawn to it after the first spray and I love that both the scent and brand exudes class. The packaging is simple, but thoughtful because the scent is made-to-order for the person to ensure freshness and quality. It smells beautiful and the scent lingers on your skin, which smells more lovely as the hours go by...

A rose’s rarest essence lives in the thorn. A thorn defends the rose, harming only those who would steal the blossom. Do not watch the petals fall from the rose with sadness, know that, like life, things sometimes must fade, before they can bloom again. The rose is a flower of love.
