The scent of wild roses of ancient Paestum in Italy was the foundation on which Italian perfumery was born. Eau d’Italie captures this tradition beautifully in Paestum Rose. However, this is not your typical rose fragrance. What makes it so unusual is the combination of rose, pepper and incense. If you love rose perfumes that are not overly sweet and have a special kick, than Paestum Rose may be the fragrance for you! Slightly demanding and somewhat vintage smelling, Paestum Rose opens with a punch of spice followed by a very strong and powerful rose. As the alcohol begins to dissipate, masculine notes of incense mingle with mouthwatering Osmanthus which keeps the fragrance unisex by reinforcing and extending the fruity-floral nuance of the rose. The wood notes in the drydown are what makes this fragrance particularly irresistable in my opinion – this is that vintage scent that I was referring to earlier. A velvety deep scent that is wonderfully haunting and mysterious. The longevity of Paestum Rose is very good, lasting approximately 6+ hours.
