(Disclaimer: I'm severely hyposmic and synaesthetic, so my perceptions may not reflect common experience. Also, my downmarket taste and experience range are going to be on display here.)


In a previous post here, I mentioned a fruitless yearning for a big, extravagant, uncomplicated rose note that I'd encountered in an industrial hand soap--only to happen upon it in BPAL's Blood Rose. By another happy bit of serendipity, a similar unequivocal old-fashioned (1) rose scent that I'm still capable of perceiving turns out to be available for three bucks a bottle; I was wondering whether anyone might recognize it in other fragrances.

(1) I suspect that a heavy rose note is the sort of thing that's come to be stigmatized as old-ladyish; it's been decades since I've come across it in a mass-marketed grooming product. Perhaps, now that the grandmas who wore stuff like Joy have been dying off, it's acquired the patina of period charm?
