Description

Frederic Malle Rose was inspired by the very particular fragrance of Ralf Schwieger's mother's lipstick that he smelled when kissing her. He created this feminine floral blend of rose, violet, musk, vanilla, vetiver, amber and grapefruit. It is a siren rose, very reminiscent of a old-school luxury lipstick.  Mad Men era, Joan - very feminine. From the Malle notes A perfume that is both regressive and a modern take on Hollywood glamor, Lipstick Rose smiles at you, like a dash of lipstick with its rose and violet-flavored candy scent. It embodies an alluring woman, part Gilda, part socialite. Grapefruit and violet enhance the fragrance’s rose note. The backdrop is musk and vanilla with a hint of vetiver and amber. A vision of glamorized femininity in technicolor.” Notes of violet, grapefruit, ambrette, coriander, tagette, aldehydes, rose, iris, raspberry and heliotrope.

Reviews of Frederic Malle Lipstick Rose

From Olfactoria's Travels - "Lipstick Rose is strong, powerful – in sillage and wear time as well as in character and it delivers a message that only I can hear: You made it. You are your own boss now, and if you want to show the world how pretty you can be, you just do it."

From Scent of the Day - "Lipstick Rose is also simultaneously old-fashioned and aggressively modern. Roses and violets may be "old-lady" notes, but the perfume is modern in the way it's composed. Spray on Lipstick Rose and you won't picture an old lady. It's a perfume for Dita Von Teese, putting on makeup at her dressing table and lacing up a corset. Maybe I don't have to live up to that. Maybe it's enough that I get to live in it for a while."

From Perfume Posse Comprehensive Malle Review - ump-shaking siren perfume from Raif Schwieger.  Like the smell in Chanel lipsticks – sultry and flirty"

    I too dislike this

    A lot of things I disliked at first that others love I've learned to see the attraction. Not this one. The waxiness some enjoy turns me off. For the rose, violet, and powder combination, I love Misia.

    Not for me

    I normally love rose scents, but I HATED this. I know some people really like it, but I wouldn't wear it again if someone paid me. It was overwhelmingly powdery and sweet, and had a strong plastic/synthetic note. Over time it got stronger and more cloying until after about an hour I couldn’t take it anymore and had to wash it off. It made my eyes water and gave me a headache that was with me for the rest of the day. Even after scrubbing my wrists at length I still got sweet powdery whiffs of it for hours.

    Rose violet heaven

    Violet and rose are a winning combination. Super-feminine. Together they combine two kinds femininity: violet being soft and powdery, is giggly and compliant, while rose -- which is complex like fine wine, sweet yet crisp or even sharp-- is dignified and elegant. I've sniffed other fragrances that put these two together, and I always find them pleasing. Pleasing, but unsatisfying. They leave me wishing I had chosen this, Lipstick Rose, instead. It's the standard-bearer for this type of fragrance! I don't know what it is that makes the difference: the grapefruit, the ambrette, the raspberry... all I know is that when I put it on, I am enveloped in rose-violet goodness. It swirls about me so effectively that I see colors: shades of fuschia, red, pink.
