Asses Plus Long, Qu’un Siècle Platonique

A month without you is far longer than a year: opal-gilded white rose petals, vanilla flower, and caramelized benzoin.

Rose is one of my top favorite notes and I am a sap for the "month without you is far longer than a year" theme so this was an obvious pick from the Lupers for my initial order.


It's a stunning rose. A bit dark, not in a gothy or vampy way but in a velvety, sensual way, with a bit of brightness in the opal. It's a very vivid fragrance and rose definitely dominantes, but this isn't a powdery rose on me. It's very lush and romantic, and has a full bodied feel to it (to steal a wine term)! The vanilla flower and caramelized benzion add a bit of sweetness to it, but this never veers into gourmand territory at all.


Overall, it's super lovely. I don't think it's particularly unique as I've smelt very similar roses amongst niche perfumery and the lab tends to do rose blends very, very well across the board. But it is still a very special blend and a really stunning, romantic, velvety and sensual rose. If you are a fan of rose, I think you'd love this in your collection. I don't personally find it redundant as rose is a note I can never get enough of. And if you are new to rose, or don't own many roses/tend to have more candied roses or roses and cream blends, this is a great place to start your foray into a more sensual and romantic rose. It's safe amongst the world of roses, but still beautiful. This will definitely get used on romantic date nights for me.
