This is such a vivid, true-to-life Tea Rose fragrance. Rose can be some of the best of florals or some of the worst, screechy, dusty. Crown of Roses nails it perfectly and because it is such good quality I don't think this would change for the worst depending on chemistry. Excellent musk also, does not detract from the star of the aptly named scent. If you're looking for a real honest rose frag, try this.
