Just received something I’ve been wanting to try for awhile–Behnaz Pure Rose Fragrance. This water-based perfume (with no alcohol) is perfect for those who are looking for cleaner and non-toxic alternatives to traditional perfumes (especially mothers of small children). Don’t get me wrong–I’m still a fan of traditional fragrances but, at this time (given the fact that my children are still so young), I would prefer to wear something less strong.
The Pure Rose is made primarily of distilled water and roses. Because of this, you should not expect this fragrance to be strongly-scented, long-lasting or leave a “trail”. Only you and someone in cuddle proximity will be able to smell this perfume. I love that it’s made of real roses with no synthetic imitations–what has turned me off about ordinary rose perfumes is that they generally smell syrupy sweet or too citrus-y. On my skin, it initially smelled a little powdery but then settled into a true rose scent. Also, the texture is very watery but that is to be expected given its composition. Another thing that I like about this perfume is that the packaging has the bottled date (expiration is six months). This underscores the freshness and authenticity of the product.
The market has been long overdue for this type of product and moms of small children looking for cleaner and non-toxic fragrance options can rejoice!
