My eBay purchase has arrived (blind buy) – Robert Piguet Rose Perfection. Probably the best deal ever – no one bid on it and I bought it for $50, brand new, 100ml bottle! I guess this perfume is not famous and flying under the radar.
I think it’s a bit cheesy to name it Rose Perfection… wouldn’t a 100% best grade rose essence oil be perfect rather? Anyway, if Portrait of a Lady is a grandma, Rose Perfection is a 30 year old yummy mommy. They share similar notes, but Rose Perfection is a bit less spicy, fresher, and the opening is a little bit watery. Besides rose, I can smell patchouli. I am happy with the purchase.
