Lush Imogen Rose Perfume
Perfume - April 17th, 2011

I just realized I’ve had this perfume for a month or so and haven’t written a word about it! Bad Claire! The perfume in question is Lush’s Imogen Rose, and it’s fabulous.

Imogen Rose is (naturally) a rose perfume. It contains rose oil and rose absolute, along with a powdery accord and vetiver. I’ve mentioned before how I love rose fragrances. They are the epitome of romance for me, reminding me of the days when I was dating my husband and falling in love, because I used to wear Tea Rose all the time. (Sappy? Yes. True? Also yes.) GOOD rose perfumes are harder to find. With all that rose oil and rose absolute, Imogen Rose is indeed a GOOD rose perfume.

The perfume has a fresh opening, probably courtesy of the bergamot, but also has the rose. It dries down to a sweet (but not too sweet) ambery fragrance on me, but the roses are still there. Like Tuca Tuca, this is a mist-and-walk-through fragrance. It’s powerful stuff.

If you love rich rose perfumes, try Imogen Rose. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

    I’m not a huge fan of rose perfumes (most of the ones I’ve tried smell like an old lady’s sofa), but I LOVE Imogen Rose. It’s also got some basil in it, which is a note I tend to flip for in perfumes, and it helps to make it more of a young-person’s rose. Also? I think it’s cute that he named it after his daughter.

    How does this compare to Pacifica’s Persian Rose? Just picked that one up and I LOVE it so far.

    Hi Amy – Pacifica’s Persian Rose is a lot lighter in character and staying power. It’s very fresh and sparkling. Imogen Rose has more of an oriental feel to it, so it’s deeper and darker, and the staying power is nuts.
