Have you read my review of Yin & Ylang not too long past? Well, I did end up buying the travel size spray of it and while shopping about on Sonoma Scent Studio I ended up picking up a 3ml spray of this rosy beauty: Rose Musc. I am quite happy I did.
Rose Musc opens with a peppery zing of fresh rose that sweetens and fizzes like a blushing Zinfandel. As the peppered and bubbly top notes effervesce then fade, the sweet pink crystalline liquid thickens and takes on a peach jam shade.With maturity Rose Musc forms a bridge from fruit to amber effortlessly. As a labdanum fiend and a rose fanatic, merging the two makes my heart palpitate. The dry down is a dark ambered musk delight, an ebony furred being that is remarkably warm and snuggly. Every magical transition of Rose Musc is beautiful; from the effervescent to the edible to the darkly seductive and comforting, I am smiling all the while. The longevity is stellar, lasting a full day and then some. Another creation of Laurie's that I need in a bigger bottle. Though I will say with the high quality concentration and longevity, this 3ml spray will last quite a while for $11. Though I undoubtedly will get either the travel size ($17 for 5ml)) or 17ml bottle ($45).
