You just sighed right? Not another Rose product! Ummm... Yes! A 100% natural Rose perfume. I can't be a rose addict without a rose scent in my perfume drawer and when it's from my favorite natural brand Weleda.. you can't keep me away from it for long! I've written about so many Weleda products before and each of them holds a special place in my heart, be it their Massage Oil, Shampoo, Body wash , Body Lotion or their Toothpaste ..haha
FunFact- I avoid putting perfumes directly on my skin as I believe they are a concoction of synthetic chemicals, unless its my pricey Chanel. But with this one from Weleda, I can go all out. I always spray some on my wrists so I can sniff it all day.
Unfortunately, I don't have everything rosy to say about the perfume. I wish the scent stayed longer. I have dry skin and perfumes/scents do tend to disappear on me fairly quickly so this natural one didn't stand a chance. On my clothing this stays for a couple of hours (1-2) before going whoosh. You really have to hug me tight to smell this one. I can sense it on my wrists for a good few hours but I'm fairly certain no one else can smell it from afar. That's quite a bugger because its so beautiful I want the world to know. I want to announce my arrival with it but ...
To be fair, Weleda does market them as light natural perfumes so I can't really complain much..can I?
Edit: Here's what Weleda Australia has to say about this on my Instagram post - "Jardin de Vie is a light natural fragrance that harmonises, revitalises and calms body, mind and soul with essential oils- they are essentially wellness fragrances. We recommend layering your favourite scent with the matching body lotion/oil to extend the fragrance experience and to reapply throughout the day."
They've put it into words so beautifully! Isn't it?
When this bottle finishes I'm probably going to buy it again..just for my own sensory pleasure and the way it centers my mind. I'm also going to look for another rose scent that stays on longer. Do you have any recommendations?
Apart from this Wild Rose scent (Romance), Weleda does two other scents in this collection- Grenade (Pomegranate, Sensuality) & Agrume (Sea Buckthorn, Joy). I tried them all at an Organic groceries store but prefer the Rose one to both. Maybe I'm just biased but I didn't find them wow!
Price- $39.90 for 50 ml
Availability- Various pharmacies, health food stores and online websites NZ wide. iHerb.com does stock Weleda range but they don't have this perfume collection in stock.
I'm all ears to your Rose perfume recommendations. Hook up this girl with her long lost soulmate!
