Scent Name:   Dejarose

Manufacturer:  MAC Cosmetics – Creations 2005

Scent Description and Notes: “A striking bouquet of lush Bulgarian, Turkish and Tea Red Roses, ruffled with luminous green nuances, while velvety petals of exotic orchid, lily, jasmine and peony are teased with a hint of crimson red raspberry then topped with a shake of pink pepper. To follow: the sensual interplay of light and dark woods, brought to fruition with a waft of patchouli and amber crystal. An intriguing scent paradox and thoroughly modern “retro-scent.” – http://www.angelfire.com/mac2/ambriel/fragrance_mac.htm

Perfume Oil Color:  Clear.

Bottle Design and Artwork:  This is larger 20ml bottle. The lid is a vibrant lipstick rose rectangle (sharp edges), the middle is clear to grant a view of the perfume, and the bottom is a slightly rounded black rectangle.  The tube that extends into the perfume matches the bottle cap perfectly. The company’s logo is engraved on the top of the lid, but the body of the bottle features no other writing unless you turn the fragrance over.  There, you find a sticker of the company logo in white against a black background, the collection in smaller bold fold, the amount and location of the company in smaller block font below that.


  • ITB:  It smells like a harden of red roses – luscious, deeply fragrant, evocative, and green.  Awesome!
  • Wet: Rose and alcohol.  I should probably let that dry a touch. It settles down into a nice blend of rich roses, a touch of raspberry, tea rose, and faint orchid.
  • Dry: It’s smoky and spicy from the pink pepper and patchouli, with subtle pink and light florals (lily and magnolia). Oddly enough, the rose note rather transitory, leaving me with only the lightest impression of rose rather than the overwhelming ppersuasiveness of the note in earlier stages.
Other Impressions: None.
