7 rose-scented perfumes to add to your spring wardrobe

Rose perfume

Spring is here and so, rose perfumes can’t be that far behind. The queen of flowers, the rose, was never really out of a perfumers’ mood board, but now it’s getting a new interpretation. “Now, the rose note is getting reinvented. The floral character remains, but it gets a sweet, velvety, almost green makeover. It’s fresh, modern floral, not unfamiliar but very different from the favourite scent of your grandma. Watch out for pairing of rose with refreshing lychee notes or pink pepper’s soft spiciness,” says Abdulla Ajmal, perfumist and business mentor Ajmal Perfumes.

 

Ahead, we pick the best rose perfumes to add to your spring closet, from amalgamations with layered earthy notes to refreshing plant based scents–there’s a lot to choose from.
