Rosabotanica by Balenciaga
The other day I got a sample of the Rosabotanica By Balenciaga and I have been testing it ever since.
Not really sure what to say about this scent, except I'm not a fan.
To me this is kind of a cross between a soapy perfume and one of those candy-like aresol sprays that I used to wear as a tween. The very first initial spray is like a deep soapy smell with a touch of spice. It then very quickly changes to the middle note which sees the spice melt away to a more floral tone but with stronger fruity smell. The base note kind of got lost on my skin and after about an hour of wearing this perfume I couldn't smell anything. This is a very bold fragrance and not for the faint hearted. This perfume will be perfect for adventurous women that are not afraid to stand out in the crowd. Unfortunatly I'm not one of them, I prefer my scents a bit sweeter and softer. You win some, you lose some.
Top note: Hyacinth, fig leaf, petitgrain
Middle note: Rose, pink pepper, cardamom, grapefruit
Base note: White amber, vetiver, cedar, patchouli, woodsy notes.
Am I wrong? What is your experience with the Rosabotanica?
This was sent to me for considertion, however my opinions are 100% genuine and honest.
