Ah roses, the flower of love. I’m supposed to be on a break but just couldn’t stay away LOL! 😀 Amidst the feasting and festivity, there are times when one needs to hide away and steal some time for oneself.
And just in time for Valentine’s Day too! Haha… But if overpriced wilting blooms aren’t your cuppa char, you could always opt for the pure DKNY A Drop of Rose which has all the scent of a rose that actually lasts, and none of the cut-throat price rises just because its February 😉
Personally, I’m not a rose girl. I admire the flower – its beautiful and the smell of a fresh rose in bloom is unlike anything found in a mere bottle. But its not me. I guess I’m not sweet and velvety and delicate although I could be pretty thorny 😀
So as you might expect, as pretty as the concept and scent of the Pure DKNY A Drop of Rose is, it wasn’t quite for me. If you love the scent of roses however, its definitely worth taking a look because the Pure DKNY A Drop of Rose smells like fresh roses in the dew.
I rather like the simple clear glass bottle styled as a water drop. I don’t pay much attention to the pure DKNY range but apparently they’ve had 2 others before this – A Drop of Verbena and A Drop of Vanilla.
This time, they chose the rose for being universally appealing to most women. As I said, I’m not personally a fan of rose scents so I’d pass on this one.
If you are however, you may like the fact that has one of the cleanest rose scents I’ve come across to date. It spritzes on skin smelling of roses adorned with dew drops in the misty morning, before settling down and enveloping your skin in a warmer softer gentle rose scent. It smells clean, as if you’ve just arisen from a rose petal strewn bath and it smells fresh, as if you’ve walked through a garden of blooming roses after the rain.
As far as scents go, if you love roses, you will likely enjoy A Drop of Rose.
Apparently the roses used in the pure DKNY A Drop of Rose are Turkish Roses harvested by hand in the early dawn and distilled into pure rose oil in Isparta, Turkey in the months of May/June when the roses are in full bloom. The use of this ingredient helps the economic situation of the people in the region and the aluminium cap, biodegradable glass and cardboard packaging are all recyclable.
For me, part of the fun about a fragrance is the commercial or video that accompanies it so here is the introduction to the pure DKNY A Drop of Rose.
As I’ve said, if fresh rose scents are your thing, you’ll flip for this one. A rose bouquet is beautiful but it is the scent of A Drop of Rose that will last far longer than any ol’ bouquet so if roses are indeed your thing, send this post to your Valentine with a note to skimp on the fresh blooms and instead gift you A Drop of Rose that will last longer than a day 😉
Have you sniffed at this one? Do you like the scent of roses?
Roses aren’t quite my thing because I prefer lighter fresher scents like Petite Cherie or heavier scents like J’Adore or interesting ones like the combinations I come up with with Jo Malone colognes. You?
Happy Valentine’s Day!
