Aftelier Wild Roses : New Perfume

Aftelier Perfumes is launching a fragrance called Wild Roses. Meant as a unisex perfume it was created by Mandy Aftel and inspired by the roses she has grown in her garden. It includes notes of rose co2, heliotropin, bergamot, geraniol, m-methyl anthranilate, damascenone; apricot, Turkish rose absolute, pimento berry, p-ethyl alcohol, rose petals attar; tarragon absolute, vanilla absolute, indole, and aged patchouli.

Wild Roses perfume evokes the garden in our imagination and memory — the book of a hundred petals unfolding: balsamic, spicy, apricot, and honeyed roses, mixed with the smell of warm earth and herbs. This is the rose that exists in your mind after you have smelled so many garden roses — blush, ruby, canary, purple, crimson edged with brown, pure white, candy-cane striped — that you feel intoxicated. …For me, I knew the center of this perfume had to be the harmony between rose and apricot — no other fruit would do: I love the way that they tumble into one another, marrying the soft, warm fruit aromas with the tender florals.

Wild Roses is available as a 1/4 oz. perfume ($170), a 30 ml EDP spray ($170), a 2 ml perfume mini
($50), and a sample size ($6) at www.aftelier.com.  Via press release

  • annemariec: Oh man! That sounds so lovely, but way too pricey for me. I will console myself with the roses that are just about to bloom in our garden, great glorious yellow ones. During the winter my daughter and I prepared and planned and finally planted our four roses, and they are just coming on now. So proud we are! October 31, 2012 at 7:18pm Reply

    • Victoria: There are roses blooming still here in Brussels. This was such a surprise, since it’s November already. But it hasn’t been below freezing point yet. November 1, 2012 at 4:04pm Reply

  • Almi: Hello Victoria! Thank you for the review on this fragrance. I do have a question, where can I find Aftelier in The Netherlands? Belgium can also be an alternative because I live only one hour away. November 26, 2012 at 4:55am Reply
