Le Labo – Rose 31

Perfume: Rose 31
House: Le Labo
Perfumer: Daphne Bugey
Source: Le Labo
Size: 5 mL spray

Notes: Centifolia rose, cumin, olbanum, cedar, amber, gaiac wood, cistus, animal musk

Date: 12/11/07 Weather: 50 degrees, cloudy

Comments: Starts with wood and cumin top. Becomes woody and spicy with a bit of cinnamon. Then sandalwood. Rose finally appears 2 hours later – “lotion-like”. Still has a bit of cinnamon. Nice. I can see why it is considered “rose for men”. Especially because the rose doesn’t even show up until much later – as hand lotion.

Date: 12/26/08 Weather: 42 degrees, cloudy

Comments: Wood and cumin. The cumin turns to cinnamon, the wood becomes sandalwood and incense. Very distinctive iris note appears at the 1 hour mark. Not sure whether this is the remains of the Prada Infusion d’Iris post shower and scrub or whether this scent has iris in it. Mellows into a sweet woody vanillic iris. Hmmm. Gets faint after 6 hours.
