Rose Anonyme by Atelier
Between sampling Vetiver Fatal and now Rose Anonyme by Atelier, I must say I believe them both to be good releases. If I had to smell Rose Anonyme blind, I may have thought it was from a different niche house notable for their Incense creations. I say that because of how dominant the Incense rendition happens to be on my skin. It blooms as the wearings ensue on me.
Rose Anonyme is a translucent wear for me. It has an airy presence and never feels dense or heavier than it should. The opening is a very soft, dry rose accented with spice. The Incense blossoms from the onset and manages to keep an even keel with the Rose. It makes me feel as though I am in close proximity to both. The Incense is of the cold variety to me and extremely enjoyable.
Unlike some reviews I have read, I don't experience oud like I've become accustomed to. This is all about soft, dry rose with embellishments, on my skin. It's velvety and has cold smoke shadowing its every move. The Oud, Papyrus and Patchouli are tuned in such a way that they never materialize in a conventional manner. I speak for myself mind you, as others may notice them in spite of me not being able to do so.
Even so, Rose Anonyme is a pleasant wear indeed. This is noticeable Rose that doesn't enter the room before you do. It also falls smack in the middle of the gender category. Sillage is moderate and longevity is approximately 5-6 hours on my skin. Thumbs up from Aromi for Atelier's Rose Anonyme. As always, a sample wear is recommended.
