When it comes to perfumes, I’m often vocal in my dislike for floral scents. Show me a rose infused fragrance and watch me wrinkle my nose in disdain. My nose doesn’t like roses in general.
Yet, you know what they say about Murphy’s Law. I never thought the day would come when I’d wax lyrical about a rose perfume!
The surprising scent is the Acqua Nobile Rosa by Italian perfume house, Acqua di Parma. I actually picked this up sight unseen, and unsmelled. It’s a very risky thing to do, and not something I’d recommend. I’ve picked up duds this way too! 😛
For some reason, I picked this up, despite the floral name and knowing that it would come up smelling of roses, and it turned out that I was pleasantly surprised 🙂
