Sampling Malle's Une Rose today. Another one I'm surprised to not know (though I may have sniffed it briefly in a store some time back). I think I somehow lumped this with Lipstick Rose in my memory, which was silly because they're so totally different. It's built around a big, juicy rose note. My first impression is that it's somewhere between the fresh, green, rose of Sa Majesty la Rose, and the wet earthy elements of Voleur de Roses. That's a good thing - I like both of those scents. And its n't as heavy or spicy as Portrait of a Lady, or the Montale oud rose scents, but it is very strong. I spritzed twice on my chest and I feel like I might be self conscious going out in public with my scent at this volume. I'll use a lighter touch next time.
