No matter what time of year it is, there's always a flower blooming some where on the planet. We enjoy their beauty through our eyes and our nose. There's nothing like the smell of a Rose.
This leads me into the article for this week. While some of you might feel that the Rose is dated as a perfume or perfume blend, it's made a come back in the world of scent. The Bulgarian Rose, which is rich and heady in its scent, dominates the fragrance of perfumers Alberto Morillas and Amandine ClereMarie. They created this blend for Salvatore Ferragamo, it's called Emozione Eau De Parfum. It's described as being topped off with notes of musk and suede. That can only mean one thing, you get Delicate -from the Rose - and Sensuous -from the musk and suede.
