I’ve never really liked the scent of rose. I think it makes people and things smell old and ancient. It’s kind of depressing really so I’ve always gone for happier scents with citrus notes.
That said, I wasn’t really sure what to expect when I got pureDKNY in A Drop of Rose. My mom who’s a perfume addict told me to give it a whirl by spraying some on. She told me that who knows, it just might end up smelling good on me. So I did. I spritzed some on my wrists and arms.
At first whiff, I thought ew, it’s just like all the other rose perfumes I’ve encountered except milder. My mom told me to let it set for a bit of time and so I did. We went out and after 30 minutes I smelled it again. Surprisingly, the scent that greeted my nose was light and fresh… sort of like floral scented baby powder. I guess it’s because of the Turkish roses used in making the perfume. I actually liked it. In fact, of the three pureDKNY scents (Verbena and Vanilla were the first two) I’ve experienced I like this one the best!
Remember, every time you purchase a pureDKNY fragrance, you are helping to lift women around the world out of poverty via CARE.
