About this deal

I fell in love with this powdery rose peony perfume some years ago when I was looking something similar to the discontinued NR L'eau.

I guess this perfume is a sort of a reformulated take on Stella, understandably meant to withstand competition from La Vie Est Belle and the sweet bomb wave currently sweeping the market. Perhaps a touch more amber, and less floral, but definitely still a sweeter, lighter, and cleaner musky scent.

Pure musc might be my favorite scent of all time, so I set the bar a bit too high for Fleur musc I’m afraid. Read about this perfume in other languages: Deutsch, Español, Français, Čeština, Italiano, Русский, Polski, Português, Ελληνικά, 汉语, Nederlands, Srpski, Română, العربية, Українська, Монгол, עברית. You feel stressed out and tired, you've had a terrible day, you feel you can't handle your issues anymore?

All of the Narciso Rodriguez perfumes I have sampled smell good, and all share familiar DNA, namely in the kind of musk that’s used. They are mature, dressed in a pencil skirt and an airy floral blouse and they smell just like this when the breeze blows and their perfume wafts over to you. I think this would be a safe wear for anytime of year for any occasion, but I agree with the statistics saying this leans to more of a daytime Spring scent.

It's super special, and I say that as someone that doesn't like most rose-forward fragrances, or even patch-apparent ones, as they smell kind of odd and musty on my skin. If you've smelled the original NR for Her, you know there's this very full-bodied and rich musky floral cloud to it, and this is no exception, just more of a concentration on rose. Both of them are quite woody in the drydown, but the woodiness of this one is lighter, much less powdery , rather citrusey due to the addition of bergamot note. Really enjoy this lovely perfume, but I wish so badly it was as long lasting as Poudre and Rouge, with a little more projection.

Neither the rose nor the musk are “old lady” like, as the rose note is fresh rather than powdery so it balances out the musk. This perfume blends pink flowers and pink berries with the patented heart of musc found in all for her fragrances. Top notes are Pink Pepper and Bergamot; middle notes are Rose and Musk; base notes are Woodsy Notes, Patchouli and Amber. Rose is very prominent on my skin and I found myself just sniffing on my skin all the time because the rose note really lingers and is so beautiful on me.What’s worse is that it lasts for all of 3 hours on me, no matter what I do or how I moisturize my skin prior to applying this. The sumptuous pink flowers, enhanced by pink peppercorns, blend with the rare musc while woody amber notes—a mix of patchouli and soft amber—illuminate. Also, not with Narciso l'eau, but that has to do with my chemistry that isn't a fan of the leading note (lily of the valley), and not how this perfume is made).

I have Stella and it does remind me a lot of that but of course with the NR musk the whole line is known for.I wouldn't recommend it for very hot and humid weather, then it just becomes sickly sweet and stuffy.
