1/10 Rose Prick Eau de Parfum by Tom Ford

Housed in a dusky pink matte chess-like bottle, Rose Prick is an alluring fragrance that resembles a beautiful bouquet of Bulgarian roses. It contains top notes of Sichuan pepper and turmeric prickles that mingle with luxurious rose ingredients, which will make you feel like you're wandering around in Ford's private rose garden after just one spritz.

Notes of bergamot, grapefruit are enveloped in a sultry combination of narcissus flower and violet, giving a divinely sweet and warm scent.

10/10 Mon Guerlain Bloom of Rose
The newest addition to the Mon Guerlain range is carefully crafted with the classic pairing of lavender and vanilla, but smells fresher than the combination of these heady ingredients might suggest.
