Perfume Sample Saturday - pureDKNY A Drop Of Rose Eau de Parfum

pureDKNY A drop Of Rose

The pureDKNY sustainability story unfolds with the classic Turkish rose. The rich soil, rain and sunshine of the Isparta valley give way to the perfect rose. As with its predecessors, A Drop of Vanilla and A Drop of Verbena, A Drop of Rose evolved in a non-traditional way: the ingredient comes first.  It begins in Turkey`s Isparta valley in the Anatolian flower fields, where the delicate pink blossoms of rose damascene variety are harvested early each summer. It follows a generations-old process that`s virtually unaffected by modern technology: Each flower is hand-picked, one by one in the cool, pre-dawn hours. By season`s end, 2500 tons of petals have been bagged, weighed, and transported by truck to the distillery where they are gently rolled and processed through 26 stills. The end product is rose essential oil.

The resulting fragrance is rose in its simplest incarnation.

With notes of Turkish rose, blackcurrant, magnolia, cedar, verbena and vanilla.

 My thoughts 

pureDKNY A Drop Of Vanilla is one of my all time favourite scents, so wearable and perfect for every day. When I heard that the new addition to the pureDKNY was going to be A Drop Of Rose I could hardly contain my excitement, I HAD to try this new scent. Regular readers will know that I am a HUGE fan of rose scented products so I was pretty certain I was going to love this new fragrance.

Needless to say A Drop Of Rose does not disappoint, rose scented, fresh, light and natural. Once again an ideal daytime scent. This to me is like the scent of rose water (the liquid left over from distilling rose oil) captured in a perfume. Rose water is one of the ingredients in my favourite Persian ice-cream (bastani) and this smells just like the dessert tastes. Utterly delightful, fragrant and in its purest form. Quite simply the perfect rose.

I liked Stella and Paul Smith Rose but this is by far the best rose fragrance yet.

I would definitely purchase this perfume.

pureDKNY A Drop Of Rose Eau de Parfum costs £37 for 30ml
