LURK RSW 005

21 Feb

Thank you for the lovely sample, Lurk. RSW 005 opens with big, bold, true to life red roses, complete with leaves and stems. The composition here is simple and quite lovely, like a nicely balanced blend of three high-quality essential oils, making this one of my favorites from the line. The particular concentration and type of sandalwood used, creates a beautiful frame for the rose. A trace of lemon trails along with the sandalwood in the dry down.

It has average projection for an all-natural perfume, and longevity is pretty poor. I always find myself disappointed when it has all but disappeared in under two hours. It feels completely unisex to me, because it is an earthy rose, smoothed by the sandalwood, and freshened by the lemon.

RSW 005 reminds me of Jo Malone’s Red Roses + sandalwood, resulting in a more delicate fragrance overall. I don’t usually wear roses, but find myself repeatedly reaching for this one. It’s just that fresh and beautiful. It’s a welcome alternative to all those “flawless” CGI rose/citrus/sandalwood compositions more widely available. Hurray for roses without musky security blankets! Though it doesn’t live forever, this lush red bouquet is the real deal for the duration of its short life.
