SOTD: Guerlain Rose Barbare

Last time I wore this, I noticed fruit, with some bitterness, at the beginning, but referred to a bone-dry chypre-like rose as it developed.

This time it's all fruit all the time. Sweet fruit, like a peach-strawberry-orange.

I'm puzzled.

  1. I get something half way between the two - sweet, honeyed, bitter sap from a rose stem!

    There's a good oxymoron in there I am surprised Shakespeare didn't get round to using...
