Dear Rose Nymphessence Fragrance Review

Dear Rose Nymphessence Fragrance Review Image

Unique perfume meets individual design with the new Nymphessence fragrance from Dear Rose.

Launched at the end of 2016, this is the latest addition to The Song Collection and one that is sure to captivate many.  Inspired by a nymph in an enchanted forest,  Nymphessence is a woody floral fragrance, illuminated by a spicy green freshness and a touch of pink pepper.

You’ll find top notes of bergamot, mandarin, pink pepper and green accords, a heart of magnolia, freesia and orange blossom and a base of amber woods and my fave, musk.

The result is light, unique and fresh.  Crisp and clear, despite the musk base, and therefore perfect for daytime but unusual enough for evening wear too.  This isn’t a scent that is too overpowering or will play havoc with your date’s senses over dinner.  It is an effortlessly beautiful perfume that any woman can feel confident wearing; it will enhance and enchant rather than take over.

Nymphessence is certainly a unique but wearable fragrance which are qualities that I have come to expect from Dear Rose; they never disappoint!  The individuality is even depicted in the stunning packaging, designed and decorated by French artist, Christophe Brunnquell, with those highly covetable rose gold tones.  This is certainly a perfume that will stand out on the shelves.

Fragrances from Dear Rose, Nymphessence included, are created alongside longstanding perfumer, Fabrice Pellegrin who is the creative nose behind some of the most loved Diptyque and Jo Malone perfumes.

Dear Rose are still a relatively new brand but they’re one that you should certainly get to know if you’re into your luxury fragrances.  Launched three years ago by founders Chantal Roos who is most well known for her work with YSL and help in creating JPG’s Le Mรขle and Issey Miyake, L’Eau D’Issey, and her daughter, musician Alexandra Roos, Dear Rose are to the nose what a beautiful song is to the ears.

Nymphessence is available to buy direct from the Dear Rose online store, as well as from Liberty London.  You can find other fragrances at Selfridges and Harrods.
