Raw Silk & Red Roses is a really rosy rose, like a walk through a rose garden. It's a 1980s-style scent, with notesof rose and violet, rose and herbs and rose and vetivert. Perfumer Sarah McCartney wants the wearer to smell this and exclaim, "Wow! Roses!" Geranium, which has a lot in common with rose, also plays a part in this fragrant creation, as do plum and peach lactones, to add a creamy, fruitiness. Patchouli lends a chocolate note and vintage musks round out the scent experience.

A gorgeous, vintage smelling, bold red rose with dark, sweet elements to it. Geranium gives it a hint of spicy green and it has a vanilla-like creaminess to it as well, with a dark sweetness from the plum and a bed of dark, warm, earthy-resinous patchouli at its base. I love patchoulis that have that sweet, chocolatey tone about them, so I love the patch in this. Very good, bold, and sensual.

Love this! my favourite perfume was discontinued some years ago and I have been searching for a new "signature" scent. This could be it.
