The Enormous Rose

This group of Yule scents was inspired by Dante who wrote Il Paradisio and another epic poem about Purgatory. Rich in tone, these are a wonderful combination of the most beautiful musks, fabulous resins, celestial coconuts with ferns, iris, candy, and the sweet imagination which Possets puts in all of their works.

The Enormous Rose

Post by Maya »

Possets' description: In the celestial realm life is lead inside a giant rose. Angels exist on its petals and the shape of the rose results in a heavenly whorl around The Divine.

Roses and opium, the scent of stony soil. A soaring rose perfume with none of the cliche driven rose parts to it. A celestial sort of a rose scent which somehow manages to combine: the earthiness of civet with a calcium fragrance, with a deep and earthy amber. Somehow, with all the earthbound element, The Enormous Rose smells heaven-like. A very complex rose.
If you can't be a success, be a spectacular failure!

I came so close to not ordering a decant of this because some of the listed notes scared me. Now what scares me is the thought that I might have missed out on this gorgeous fragrance! It reminds me of Woman in that it's a dramatic, sexy rose with wonderful depth. The individual notes like "stony soil" don't stick out; everything just comes together into a lush, amazing whole.

If you like Woman, The Enormous Rose is a must buy. I haven't tried them side by side yet, but I think that TER may have a little more of a fresh-cut quality. It definitely has wonderful throw, and it would be a gorgeous choice for wintertime parties.

What kind of rose is it? Yellow? Red? Pink? I can do yellow roses by Cambienne, and I can do Gypsy Grave. Other reds or pink roses, not so much.

I'm so sorry, but I can't tell the color of a rose from the fragrance. I'm a rose ignoramus. :cry:

No worries Petticoats! You are awesome, and don't have to be a rose expert. I think I'll stay away from it just because, rose and I, we have a touchy relationship. ROFL!

Yes if you don't like roses don't do this one, it is Enormous.
Lovely though, I adore this one. Posset roses never turn nasty or soapy on me, they are fresh and lovely all the way. :flow:
