The Scoop

Some ingredients deserve to be presented without too much superficial adornment, and Rose Centifolia, the astonishingly fragrant flower that has held a central position in European perfumery for centuries, is certainly as deserving as they come. Which isn't to say that Rose Hubris, Ex Nihilo's luscious, hedonistic tribute to rose, doesn't have a trick or two up its sleeve: with wonderful fruity, citrus and spicy accents, Rose Hubris presents us with a portrait of a flower in full bloom, from soil to stem to bud.

Rose Hubris opens with a burst of mouthwatering fruity lychee, with just a touch of sweet, maple-inflected fenugreek. In the heart, the rose shines brightly, sumptuously floral with just the right amount of resinous labdanum for depth and balance, while a gloriously deep base of oakmoss and earthy patchouli takes us deep into the roots of this magical flower. Classic yet contemporary, naturalistic yet utterly exhilarating, Rose Hubris is best described in a single word: gorgeous.

Here's what other people are saying about Rose Hubris...
If you're not a rose fan this fragrance won't change your mind, but the oakmoss that tinny note fenugreek?...take this one a bit off the beaten path in the drydown. The fourth star is for the wit provided by the lychee up top, which reminds us that rose scents can be almost cartoonishly sweet -- until someone takes it off that beaten path.
