Here's what other people are saying about Voleur de Roses...
Unimpressive smokey rose. Three simple notes, which could be a masterpiece of a melody instead turns into the herbal area of a co-op shop. Reminds me of how my cousin, who joined the Rainbow People, smelled after having a toke in her seedy van parked outside and threw on some floral water. Longevity is in the gutter, which in this case was a blessing.

I was really looking forward to this, but i found that the scent disappeared within the first five minutes, with not a trace that it had ever been on me. i drenched myself in it the second time i wore it-- same thing. I would buy this in a heartbeat if it was a long-lasting parfum.

This went straight to the (very dirty and, to me, very unpleasant) patchouli without stopping by the rose first - which, for me, was the whole point. Disappointing.

Oh yeah! Dirty, sexy patchouli with a hint of rose. Me like!

this is the only scent i wear. everyone who comes close to me makes a comment about how good i smell. when i put it on i smell myself and love the way i smell. the rose is really faint, and the patchouli is also very subtle. but all together, the mix is an earthy, fabulous mix which i highly recommend.

The overall effect is a filthier, muskier, and far more inferior version of Aramis.

This one is actually very long lasting on me and I do love it but blame it on body chemistry it is nearly different every time I wear it - sometimes rose, sometimes plum and other times straight up patchouli (my least favorite!). I do love it and I am still on a quest for the perfect dark rose (alas Frederic Malle Une Rose wasn't it) but if I had to chose between this and Passage D'enfer I'd go with the latter since the smell is consistent every time I wear it.

If this perfume were a woman, it would be a very intoxicated siren, her slip dress falling off one shoulder and her makeup smeared, tottering ever so slightly on her stilettos. It's a hot mess made all the more hectic by the fevered lemonade smell which fades to crushed rose petals. I wish it lasted longer; I wear it when I want to be trouble.

I smell rose and dirt/mold all mixed up together. One note doesn't really stand out over the other, they're both just there. "Dirty Rose" is an accurate description of this scent.

I do love this. It does not last long on my skin, but it the luck scent discription is perfect.

My further thoughts: I tried this again at a different time of the month, and it smelled totally different than it had two weeks before. I guess that's a reminder to us ladies that our body chemistry changes quite a lot over a few weeks, and I feel I owe L'Artisan an apology: on the second go, it smelled just lovely, with no tweaking. Roses lasted a lot longer. It's still nice to know, though, what a good layering scent this is.

On me, the roses run away in about twenty minutes and I'm left with all the dark, earthy, undertones...but-- this is absolutely essential to me, because I can layer it with almost any other rose scent and it makes all the other scents better. It goes with so many things and can go in so many directions--- also, straight out of the bottle, it's a knockout on my husband. It doesn't necessarily smell "manly" right out of the bottle, but I think this perfume is very changeable, moreso than others, which is why it not only smells so different on him, but also blends so well with so many other things.

This morning I mixed this with CdG's Rose, and the effect is amazing!

This smells like chocolate on me. My husband thinks it smells of salad creme. You have been warned

This one is great. Very feminine on my skin, plum is strong+dark roses, smells like berries, patchouli is not loud. Very good!!!

This is the best rose scent I've ever come across! It's not that strange rose smell from sratch-n-sniff stickers, or that old lady rose smell either. I find it very feminine and lovely. I first expericed it when my sister ordered a sample, and it smelled like fingernail polish on her. She let me try it and it blossomed into this wonderful earthy sensous aroma. Just goes to show how different everyones chemistry is.

One of the most beautiful and complex rose scents I have encountered. Great lasting power, and the sillage is wonderful. I want a bottle of this!
By   - perfume collector on 1/6/2009
At first I thought this was really complex and delicious. Then it dawned on me that I had smelled something similar before...Jovan Fresh Patchouli, which, if memory serves, cost me all of $5. I really don't think this smells cheap at all, but now I'll never get the association out of my head. Maybe I can wear it to my next hippie potluck.

For the first hour I am Queen of the Wood Nymphs: reckless & ravishing, earthy, yet regal. Then, as it's on its way out this scent takes a turn for the strange and suddenly I am Miss Havisham: aging recluse trapped in a slightly musty apartment filled with dead flowers. Before I can decide how I feel about the change I smell like nothing to speak of--poof, it's gone. That first hour was pretty amazing though...

I found that this disappeared on me. Almost immediately - I definitely get the plum note, but the rose is strange.
