Everything's Coming Up Roses


I have to admit, while I'm not familiar with the brand Le Labo, I have came across the name after my thousandth visit to Fragrantica. Le Labo Rose 31 Shower Gel ($50 / full size) was a lovely surprise when we checked in at Fairmont. It bubbles up real nicely, feels luxurious whilst on your body, moisturizes really well, and the scent lingers the whole day. Given the price tag, I shouldn't have been surprised that it's nothing short of amazing.

The name Rose 31 is ironic seeing as this isn't straight up roses. I can smell it faintly, but the perfume is very heavy on the spices. It has cumin in it - a spice with a scent I absolutely loathe - but in this instance, it works exceptionally well with the black pepper. Rose 31 is very woody and musky. It's a very, very sexy scent to me. If Rose 31 was a man, I would be all over him right now, to be quite frank.

I have fallen completely in love with Rose 31, and if I can afford the eau de parfum bottle ($160/50ml | $240/100ml) - which newsflash: I don't lol - I would definitely hoard it in a heartbeat! But for now, I can settle with my bottles of shower gel!

What's the one perfume that you really want? :)
