This is a very ROSE smelling perfume. If you like a true tea rose fragrance, you will love this. It lasts a very long time. I find it is too strong and pure a note to enjoy for a perfume, but I love to put it in my bath, and scent my clothing and sheets with it. I have worn it as a perfume, but it is not that complex a fragrance and with the single very strong note, can be cloying.
