Dries Van Noten Rosa Carnivora Eau de Parfum is among the extra linear scents within the vary, because it was primarily a recent rose framed by lush, fragrant greener, woodiness, and a little bit of earthiness general. The vetiver was one of many extra distinguished notes by way of many of the put on with the rose being strongest within the first half of damage and simply barely noticeable towards the tip.

What does Rosa Carnivora Scent Like?
The vetiver was entrance and heart within the opening, earlier than it gave strategy to freshly-cut roses, in good bloom, and dusted with pink pepper–sufficient to be evoke pepperiness however not sufficient to overwhelm the rose. Over the primary 5 minutes, the rose sweetened barely, grew ever-so-slightly heavier, and a woody high quality got here by way of. The vetiver had burst onto the scene, then virtually disappeared, after which returned to supply a lush, inexperienced backyard for the rose to emerge from, although the rose gave the impression to be overtaken by the vetiver.
The addition of patchouli, which appeared extra current a few half hour into improvement after which turned extra distinguished (with the vetiver shifting barely out of focus), enhanced the dusty, woody facets of the vetiver. There wasn’t rather more improvement till it actually began to put on away and sit shut on my pores and skin, then it was extra vetiver and fewer patchouli.
It lasted for eight hours till it was a skin-scent and about 12 hours earlier than it was fairly tough to detect on my pores and skin. The sillage and projection had been average with the sillage dropping sooner than the projection inside the second hour of damage.
From studying others’ opinions and experiences, this looks like it could be just like Le Labo’s Rose 31, which might probably be extra reasonably priced (given it will additionally come in numerous sizes). The nostril behind this scent additionally was the nostril behind a number of Le Labo fragrances, together with Rose 31. (It has been too lengthy since I’ve smelled Rose 31 to weigh in).
I really like an earthy rose scent; I really like darker, lush inexperienced with rosy florals, and I’m completely within the camp the place earthy, soiled, and woody can supersede the rose with out me complaining. I famous that this was one of many closer-wearing scents from the vary that I’ve tried, which can make it a greater decide for individuals who like delicate perfumes. As a lot as I loved the scent, I don’t know if it’s one thing I’d attain for occasionally sufficient to benefit buying a bigger bottle. I’ll endeavor to make use of my pattern some extra to see!
These are extra subjective emotions primarily based on what I like (or don’t like) in a fragrance in addition to contemplating the perfume in opposition to different perfumes I personal and love.
For testing, I used a fraction of a 2ml pattern vial dabbed to the underside and topside of my wrist space. I used an unscented moisturizer previous to making use of the scent as I discovered scent didn’t maintain effectively right here in any other case.
I bought my pattern as a part of a discovery set in Could 2022; fragrances are identified to be reformulated over their lifetime, so be conscious of when a assessment was made, e.g. a assessment from 2010 could not mirror what the same-named fragrance smells like in 2022.
Rosa Carnivora is out there for $305.00 for 100ml or $375.00 for 200ml (refill).
If potential, I extremely suggest making an attempt a perfume earlier than buying a full bottle as a result of perfume can put on in another way simply due to pores and skin chemistry. Pores and skin chemistry can impact not simply the longevity of a perfume but additionally what notes are distinguished or hidden.
