Do you remember receiving your first bouquet of a dozen roses?   Mine were yellow – I’ve always been partial to yellow roses, and now there are three new fragrances, A Dozen Roses, which are exclusive to Neiman Marcus.  Each bottle is original artwork showcasing the lovely rose that is inside.

A Dozen Roses Gold Rush Eau de Parfum is my favorite of the three.  They describe it as sexy, wild and rich.   I call it intoxicatingly lovely.   With notes of Blackberry, Neroli (that always gets me) ylang ylang layered with bittersweet chocolate and ebony woods, wrapped with the auro of the Gold Rush Rose.

Shakespeare In Love Eau de Parfum is described as pure lasting romance; warm, wonderful and memorable.  This has notes of jasmine, gardenia and fresh pear that blends into creamy woods and vanilla.  At the heart is a beautiful blush rose.

The last fragrance in the trio collection is Iced White Eau de Parfum.  This is described as a bright white flash; icy, edgy, effervescent – a brisk mix of white on white.  This scent includes notes of white peony, white primrose and osmanthus that cools down with vanilla, white musk and at the center a fresh white rose.

These are lovely fragrances to check out – they are not your grandmother’s rose perfume that you may recall her wearing as she gave you  a hug.  A Dozen Roses brings about a new sophistication to the scent.   And over 30 years later, I still love a yellow rose.
