Un Zest de Rose


Launched in 2002 by Les Parfums de Rosine, Un Zest de Rose was inspired by a rose, so pale yellow in colour that it’s almost white.  

It opens with a bright sparkling note of lemon, fortified with a green note from bergamot and sweetened with orange peel. A note of dried fruit, candied citrus rind to my nose, gives it all a lovely depth. The beauty of the opening lies in how delicate the fresh, natural citrus is – no blast of mouth-puckering lemon here. At the heart, a lush, velvety rose note comes forward and while the effervescence of the opening fades, the lemon never really does, thanks to the citrusy freshness of green tea and yerba maté – it stays delicate and soft playing off the rose, now bolstered by jasmine, each complementing the other beautifully. The rose goes right to the base where amber gives it a sweet earthiness and musk keeps it smooth.

The drydown is a soft, fresh and delicate, despite the citrus-heavy notes, and with just enough earthiness and musk to give it some heft, making it the perfect fragrance for a sultry summer’s day.
