Today’s review is about Yves Rocher Fresh Rose Eau de Toilette. I love shopping for fragrances whether it’s EDT or EDP. This is my first Yves Rocher EDT. This fragrance was released in 2012 and it’s accompanied with the body lotion and body wash. I bought all three products from this range and will be reviewing the other products soon. This particular collection is named Un Matin au Jardin. Read on to find out how good or bad it turned out for me.

My Experience with Yves Rocher Fresh Rose Eau de Toilette:
The packaging is lovely. It comes in a cardboard box which has lovely pink roses printed all over it. The overall packaging is also pink in color. The bottle inside is also mild pink in color. It’s a handy 100 ml bottle. The cap is metallic. It opens easily but fits the nozzle well. Overall, the packaging is great. It might be a little risky for travels as it is made up of glass.
The fragrance is just lovely. It’s very mild and not at all overpowering, which I love. It smells mostly like fresh cut roses. The fragrance has a sweet rose smell and nothing more than that. I could not figure out any other notes associated with this fragrance. After a few hours on the skin or clothes, there are no more notes emerging.
I use a few sprays around my neck and wrist. With other body sprays, I tend to use 2 to 3 when going to work. With this, I use at least 5 to 6. One needs too many sprays for the fragrance to actually reach one’s own nostrils. The longevity is at its poorest. On me, it lasts 2 to 3 hours. By the end of the third hour, the fragrance is almost gone.
I initially thought that the problem is with my nose that I cannot smell the scent well. So then, I asked my husband to smell me. 😉 He also could detect the scent only when he came very close. I wish this fragrance had a better staying power. That way, this would have been one of the best rose fragrances ever. Still, I enjoy wearing this fragrance. I feel fresh and happy whenever I use this EDT. It’s perfect for the spring time.
