Description

 Serge Lutens Rousse was inspired by cinnamon, not something you find very often in a fragrance. Cinnamon is a supporting note, used to spice, it almost never takes center stage. Rousse is a warmed, amber cinnamon spiciness, more about the bark. It's a gorgeous winter fragrance.  Rousse is in the Oriental Spicy fragrance group.  

Reviews of Serge Lutens Rousse from noses that may or may not sniff like your nose. 

from Kafkaesque - "Rousse opens first and foremost with white floral notes that have a very peculiar, grey, soapy tinge, and which are mixed with a bitter, pungent, slightly medicinal note of cloves. Quickly, they are joined by orange tones, dry spices, and dry woods. Both the combination of notes, and the way that their slightly acrid, sharp overtones burn my nose momentarily makes me think of Lubin‘s Idole in eau de toilette form. It takes about a minute for the cinnamon in Rousse to appear but, when it does, it bursts forth with such intensity that Rousse is briefly transformed into the expected Red Hots candies, and very little else. The fiery sweets sit atop a somewhat thin, lightly boozy element mixed with that strange, dry, grey-white note that appeared earlier. I’ll simply call it a “greige” note, because that’s what it feels like, especially as there is the quiet whisper of something soapy underneath."

from perfumeposse - "Rousse (2007) – Pretty sure I was one of five perfume bloggers that liked Rousse when it was released – still do.  Spiced and warmed cinnamon baking. Mandarin, cinnamon, cloves, spices, floral & aromatic notes, fruit, cinnamon wood, precious woods, amber, musk and vanilla"

    Undeniable cinnamon!

    Yes, this is cinnamon candy with a soft floral background, to me. While, it's very nice, it is not the red hot cinnamon spice bomb I was expecting. Very wearable and pleasant, but not a sexy " night out" perfume. Worth trying a sample!

    YUMMY

    The top notes are almost obnoxious. You put this on and wonder why anyone would want to go around smelling like red hot cinnamon candies. But, like any top note, it falls away in about 10 minutes. What is left behind...yummy. A dreamy smell of spice (cloves?), and just something warm, lingers hour after hour. I looked up the English translation for "Rousse". It means "redhead". Coincidence that I absolutely love Rousse and also happen to have an enormous amount of red hair?
