Goya Black Rose | A Romantic Fragrance

Usually when one talks about rose based fragrances, one tends to assume it is a scent meant for ladies of a certain age. It couldn't be farther from the truth. A number of perfume houses have fragrances with the exquisite rose scent and these are gaining a lot of popularity with ladies of all ages. Goya's Black Rose is one such excellent rose based fragrance. Black Rose was first launched in 1955 and was very popular in the 50-80s. In 2014, the scent was recreated from the original archived formula and the classic was brought back! I had not used the original version so I could not compare the relaunched version to the older one but let me tell you straight up, the newer version is exquisite - very youthful and stylish - like a beautiful bouquet of fragrant roses.

Black Rose comes in a simple but stylish bottle. As the name suggests, Black Rose has a beautiful rose scent. It starts off with a sparkling burst of citrus (bergamot) and green stems contrasted by clove. The heart of the scent is fresh, feminine and floral - rose, geranium and rose damas. The fragrance has a dry down of jasmine and velvety musk as it blossoms on the skin. Beautiful. Not overpowering and not a synthetic fragrance. Just a lovely, sweet fragrance that is very wearable!

The makers have managed to create a stunningly romantic fragrance that has a vintage vibe and is gorgeously feminine. It is a lovely fragrance that I am enjoying using. In terms of longevity it seems to last 6-7 hours on me. So, no complaints on that front too.

Goya Black Rose can be ordered directly from www.goyablackrose.com at an RRP of £49.99 for 100ml. Also available on the website are the scent in a smaller size ideal for travel (15ml, £19.99) and a perfumed soap (£4.00)
