Here's what other people are saying about Brulure de Rose...
I love rose fragrances generally, but this one managed to put me off. It opens with a strange powdery, metallic, too sweet fruity musk and a rose note that smelled very artificial and unpleasant. The fragrance improves a bit with the drydown but the end result is something that smells like a plastic rose from outer space. This is not a scent I would want to wear.

Crème brûlée topped with fresh raspberries and sugar crystalized rose petals. Even though it's dessert-like at first, the rose note eventually dominates and mingles with an ambery, balsamy note. Beautiful!!

This is the first rose fragrance I have tried and me and her are meant to be together! From start to finish this is beautiful on my skin. playful,carefree but sophisicated and meant to be present! I love it and I am sure you will too. If you like Montales Roses Elixir then you have to try this!

Smells like rose petals that have been macerated in a sickly sweet sugar syrup. It's a very cloying and linear scent.

URGH! I love PG, but this was nausea inducing. Really cheap homescent smell, like a really bad rose candle.

Umm..honey, cocoa, vanilla??? What and where!! I didn't get any yummy gourmands in this! This was a citrus powdery rose at first, and then as it dried down it got more powdery and reminded me of a rose scented soap. I don't think it's very good, but at the same time I've never been much of a rose fan. I do get a touch of raspberry musk after about 15minutes, but its sickly cloying to my nose and this doesn't in any way save the fragrance as far as I'm concerned. A whiff of cocoa came out after about an hour or so, then- the fragrance faded to nothing. This is one of the WORST-blended scents I've come across! A minor note: This reminded me of Indult Manakara-though not nearly as strong.

Not ugly, but too powdery and soapy for my tastes.

Really looked forward to this one and was disappointed. Smells exactly like a rosey, medicinal lip balm.

Toffee, really high quality British stuff my Mum used to put in my stocking but toffee none the less. Roses deserve better treatment.

FBW worthy, even for somone who doesn't normally like rose fragrances. This is as good as Montale's rose in the White and Red Aoud fragrances. Brulure de Rose is a gorgeous foody rose....a rose dipped in sugar and presented in a crystalized form. Love it!

I think I can't fairly judge this perfume because Paestum Rose so clearly dominates the "incense/woods/rose" field. Compared to Paestum Rose's austure spicy woods, Brulure feels more resinous and close, almost (but, to be fair, not quite) claustrophobic. The incense is probably more perceptible versus PR's division between incense/spice/woods. For me, it leaves a stronger gothic impression (gothic like churches and cathedrals and torrid suspense, not gothic like Marilyn Manson) I don't hate this scent, at all, but I smelled PR first and love it more.

PERFECT....this to me smells like perfectly candied young rose petals, a beautiful rose scent without being to rose heavy. Reminds me alot of Montale Aoud Rose Petals minus the Aoud. Definitely a keeper.

My initial impression of this scent was 'roses dipped in caramel', which intrigued me. But as it developed, and the raspberry kicked in to stand beside he rose, balancing the caramelly sweetness just perfectly, I fell in love. This scent is an exemplar of precision scent blending. There is exactly the right amount of each of the notes to make the composition rich yet light, sweet yet tart, lush yet delicate. I've really fallen hard for this fragrance.

beautiful! i normally can wear rose scents, but the cocoa, vanilla and raspberry really soften the rose. it makes me think of a special valentines day....a yummy chocolate cake with vanilla icecream and raspberries....a beautiful bouquet on the table. if only it lasted longer!

a delicious, soft, sugary rose! very comforting and delightful.

One of the better-balanced PG scents. I like how the juicy tartness of the raspberry note cuts through the richness of the rose and cocoa. A touch of musk softens the edges. Some rose fragrances wallop you over the head, but this one floats gently around you. I'm not sure it's daring enough to be called a "brulure," but it is one of the loveliest rose scents I have ever tried.

Love the smell of fresh roses, but am never able to wear the scent. This one, however, is not too sweet nor cloying like some rose scents. The vanilla, cocoa, amber and raspberry kept the rose scent from being overwhelming. Can't wait to purchase a bottle!!

I love rose but can never wear single note rose perfumes. This one is very delicate and reminds me of roses in a garden early in the morning. Delicate.

Reminds me of scented soaps. If you are a rose-lover, this may be too soapy for you.
