Lanvin Rumeur 2 Rose is my third Lanvin perfume in my collection. I always think that their perfumes are underrated, interesting and classic. They are after all, a perfume house.
Rumeur 2 Rose is created in 2006 by Honorine Blanc, creator of YSL Black Opium and the new Obsessed For Women for Calvin Klein. The perfume is an updated version of the original 1934 perfume. I would love to smell that one!
The bottle is a simple shape with a light pink undertone to it. The stopper has a ring pull which is fun.
The first spray immediately splashes citrus onto you! Lemon, grapefruit, bergamot and oranges are all there. A hint of pear gives a slight sweetness to it. The dry down still has citrus notes but floral notes start to appear. Rose, honeysuckle, magnolia and jasmine give floral bouquet to the fragrance. Musk, Patchouli and amber are at the base and I can also feel green as well. It lasted well, not the greatest but for a light fragrance that isn’t surprising.
Rumeur 2 Rose is a light, fresh, green and floral fragrance. It is very nice spring/summer scent. It’s not sweet or overpowering. It is a nice perfume for those who don’t like too strong or heady fragrances. Even though it was aimed at a younger audience, I think any age can wear this perfume as it is such a light and floral fragrance.
