Pure DKNY - A drop of rose

DKNY has come up with a third fragrance in the Pure DKNY series and this time it's all roses with this one called 'A drop of rose'. The emphasis is on including roses that have been grown with care in the valleys in turkey and harvested naturally to ensure it's purity and keeping it away from technological processing.

I love the fact that the bottle is 100% recyclable and the packaging is biodegradable as well. It reflects the spirit of the simple perfume effectively as an over the top bottle would have completely deviated from the point.

The fragrance is made up primarily of Verbena - a semi woody flowery plant, Turkish Rose Damascene and Vanilla. Albeit a foolproof combination, I haven't sniffed it before and neither do I own a similar one in my fragrance wardrobe. Compared to this, my other fragrances seem quite artificial smelling and overpowering. If you cringe at the thought of scents like 'Lady Million' and 'Black Orchid', this one will be right up your street.

Pure DKNY - A drop of rose smells soft and sweet, not sickly in any manner, just like a real rose. It still maintains its freshness that most sugary sweet scents do not. The Vanilla and Verbana tone down the sweetness by just a notch and add some warmth to it, balancing out the concoction to perfection.

On me, the slightly tangy element of the scent prevails. I sprayed it on my sister and on her it was much more warm and the rose notes were more pronounced and sweet. It smells different on everyone is my point so do have a sniff at a counter if you like the sound of it.

If you're looking to revamp your fragrance wardrobe this new year and make it all set for spring, this clean, feminine, elegant and frills free scent is smelling fresh roses in a garden at its best.

Launching 3rd of February, a 100ml bottle retails for £69.

I haven't actually tried out the Pure DKNY but this one's gorgeous! It's not as strong as your typical rose scent so do give it a sniff :)
