SOTD: Mille et Une Rose

So today I am wearing one of the most gorgeous rose scents out there, Lancome's Mille et Une Rose, gorgeous concoction of ambrosial rose, amber, and I most definately a dollop of airy cloud like vanilla. The is a delectability to this rose that is surprising in that it is not a gourmand, but the rose has such a wonderful "chewiness" that it reminds me of the use of rose water in middle eastern cooking for desserts.

This one is such a lush and round rose, isn't it? I usually don't do roses well, but some stand out. Stella Rose Absolue has some elements in common with it.

Lovely picture too! Glad to see you posting :-)

Your right Stella Rose Absolut as elements in common with it too (I have it also), Stella can be sometimes way to strident, where as Mille et Une Roses softens and encompasses in a gorgeous gauzy manner.
