Byredo Rose of No Man's Land Review

Byredo Rose of No Man's Land Perfume

Byredo Rose of No Man's Land has been on my fragrance hit-list for a while, and thanks to a very generous husband, it now takes pride of place on my dresser. The name, wildly romantic on the stark white label, makes reference to the real roses of no man's land - the nurses on the front line in World War I. The blurb promises a "sophisticated and fortifying bouquet" - intriguing - and as the name would suggest, a whole load of roses.

Scandi, minimalist, millennial packaging aside, this fragrance is a rose lovers' dream. The official notes are pink pepper, raspberry blossom, Turkish rose, papyrus and white amber. It opens with a slightly spicy, warm, peppery flourish, but quickly settles in to a grown-up, jammy, delicious rose scent. If you are familiar with the delectable Rose Jam from Lush, this is the less sweet, deeper, big sister in EDP form. Rose of No Man's Land is a huge pile of rich rose petals in a bottle. To my nose, it's a very "real" floral scent - no Mrs. Doubtfire-esque bouquet or cheap synthetic flowers here. It isn't overwhelming, however - it's fresh enough to feel modern, and lingers for about 6 hours on my skin, leaving just a warm woody ghost of rose scent on the skin.
