[unpaid/sample/ad] There’s something rather optimistic about Rose Pompon if you like fruity notes in your fragrance. It’s not completely clear in my information how this differs from the original 2016 Rose Pompon and it’s a bit far back for me to remember exactly except peony isn’t a lead note, instead replaced by raspberry.

Rosa Centifolia is at the heart of this – and the flower that the fragrance is named for – it has so many petals and a round flower head that it’s known as the pom-pom rose.

This is, to my recollection, a sweeter, more fulsome arrangement than the original or special editions that have appeared previously. I say it’s optimistic because it is the sort of scent that has the ability to ping at the memory – of recognisable rose gardens, juicy raspberries with a dash of sugar and summer days. When I first wrote about this fragrance in 2016 it cost £67 for 50ml. This version, four years on, is £89 for 50ml, although ingredient changes may account for part of it. The last is excellent on me – a full day. Perhaps this is one for the time when things are starting to get back to how they used to be as a celebration of it. You can find it at Harvey Nichols.
