[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ad] I’ve got three of the Nest Perfume Oils to review and I’m starting with Turkish Rose. It’s incredible really how many iterations of rose there are in fragrance world, but when I smell the roses trees in my garden they all smell of rose but none smell identical so maybe it’s not that surprising.
This is rather an unusual rose because of the black plum notes that sit with it. It’s sweet with no discernible green notes but it’s not heavy or hefty which I find quite interesting. There is definitely something of the gourmand to it despite the woody down notes.
I love the dropper – not very portable though – the process of applying a couple of drops of the oil to wherever is rather lovely. It’s a stayer too – I wore it most of yesterday and it was still present by the end of the day. Overall, it’s a very fruity rose – you will either love what that plum note does to rose or you won’t. I’m really on the fence about it – Nest Turkish Rose Perfume Oil reminds me so much of going into ‘posh’ stores in New York where when you walk in you get a drift of fragrance that’s familiar but not immediately recognisable. I think it’s the extra sweet layer that suits the American nose better than maybe it does ours. There must be fragrance preferences country to country, surely. It just smells American to me! It’s also really expensive at £96 but comes in a roller ball version for £32 HERE and that would be my option. Cult Beauty has a sampler set HERE for £48 containing Turkish Rose, Seville Orange, Madagascan Vanilla, South Pacific Sandalwood and Indian Jasmine.
