Spice 31? Cedar 31? No, Le Labo Rose 31.

I wish I was able to like this fragrance, unfortunately, I just can’t do it. Rosé 31 is one of those fragrances I just don’t get. I’m so happy some people get it because I’m still searching for the rosé in the midst of all the spices, woods and musky elements. I’m an optimist and I haven’t given up hope just yet. I will figure this fragrance out before hell freezes over. Believe that.

Dear Scent Diary,

Dear Scent Diary,

When I was in New York last summer, I happened to stumble into the Le Labo boutique in Nolita, unplanned. What. Stop looking at me that way. Fine, I stalked the place and made a deliberate trip. Sheesh. Anyway, I hadn’t had a chance to sample any of their fragrances beforehand, but I’d heard/read/watched quite a bit about Rose 31 and was eager to try it.

    I definitely get the rose, and I’m not a great rose lover. It’s dark and dirty as well as floral, and I admire the creativity of that and how well it’s balanced. I couldn’t wear it every day or anything, but I’m glad I own it. Hope it will grow on you.

      I have another decant of Rose 31 and I must say it is growing on me. No rose yet however, but it is a fantastic fragrance with its musky, woody and spicy goodness.
