Rozy EdP + Voille d’Extrait by Vero Kern for Vero Profumo 2014


Post by Val the Cookie Queen


We are coming up to the launch of the Rozy Extrait. I have been smacking my head against a wall for the last year trying to come up with something to say about the Rozys – Edp and the Voile. Verges on the impossible. If we are familiar with a fragrance before we read about it, we can then do something with what has been written. However if we do not know the perfume of which we are reading, it is much more difficult, if not impossible to know how it will smell. Hands up those who have read about something, only to try it and wonder where it all went wrong.

The Militia Company of District II under the Command of Frans Banninck Cocq (better known albeit incorrectly as Rembrandt´s “The Night Watch”) is a stunning piece of art, and one of the most famous paintings in the world. But until you have seen it you have no idea how awe inspiring it is. It is housed in it´s own room the “Nachtwachtzaal” in the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. It is 363 cm x 437 cm (142.9 in x 172.0 in). You can try to describe it but the only way to be able to see the fine nuances of the painting’s complex colour palette is to go to the Rijksmuseum. The only way to smell the fine nuances in Vero Kern´s Rozys is to wear them.

Imagine that you need to describe honey to someone who has never tasted sweet.

Fragrantica gives these featured accords in one line:
Oriental rose, tuberose, currant buds and leaves, honey, spices, sandalwood, labdanum, powdery notes, tarragon, peach, passionfruit, hyacinth

Both Rozys are objects of desire, lust and adoration, stains on the skin.

The Rozy EdP is hazy, peachy, rosy, sweet, divine, innocent and yet full of desire. Warm and erotic. It melts into the skin, thus becoming as one with the wearer. Bewitching. This perfume spills its secrets only over time. My most worn .vero.profumo..

The Rozy Voile d’Extrait?

“Gather your wits and hold on fast,
Your mind must learn to roam.
Just as the Gypsy Queen must do
You´re gonna hit the road” (The Acid Queen. Pete Townsend)

Wearing this is making a pledge or a vow to hold on until the end. A cerise ocean with and honey-capped sandalwood waves. A blushing rosy pink, tangerine colored aura, as near to radio-active as a perfume can get, shockingly surreal, and yet in perfect harmony. Astounding.

“The rose is the flower of virgins and women, but also of vice and prostitution. Thorns and roses symbolize the ambivalence of love and sorrow – the drama of finite love.” Vero Kern

How beautiful are the Rozys? How long is a piece of string?

    Wow. You really did find the words, Val. Amazing post about an amazing pair of perfumes. Can’t wait to hear about (and try) the extrait. You will have a blast in Milan next month.

    I’m wearing the edp today thanks to your heads-up. The Voile got to me straight away but this one has really impressed me over time.

    • cookie queen says:

      Yes tara. Me too. It took me quite some time to realize the beauty in it. The fragrances are very complex. And so clever, I mean how does she do that? xxx

  3. Sandra says:

    Wow Val! Your words are breath taking and you make me want to revisit the perfume tonight. Beautiful! Xo

  4. TinaG says:

    Oh Val, what a lovely review! “A cerise ocean with and honey-capped sandalwood waves…” Makes me wish I had some Rozy on hand to put in right now. I’ve never tried it – I keep meaning to grab a full set of Vero samples, I’ll make that happen!

    Thanks, great article.

    Nectar-drippingly gorgeous review! And your pick of colours are just right to support it synaesthetically. Love Vero’s comment on rose perfumes too. Rummages for samples to enjoy these again…

    Dear Val – such a lovely and dangerous review! You are a dangerous gateway drug – or rather, your eloquent writing about Vero Profumo is. I am anticipating today the delivery of the lion’s share of a split of Mito VdE. Having read your work on Vero’s oeuvre, I first got a sample from LuckyScent, then was stuck: couldn’t live without it, couldn’t afford a FB. Thank goodness for splits! But now I need to enjoy Mito, not explore more from Vero’s amazing line. Have a great time in March – I envy you!

    • cookie queen says:

      I am running for a spritz of the Mito Voile as I type this. Beautiful. Congratulations. I look forward to Milan, I know how lucky I am. I shall keep you updated! Thanks for dropping by. Bussis. xxxx

    Crazy vivid review, Val! Love everything about it.
    The paragraph above the bee photo deserves to be turned into a couple of paintings (a radioactive rose inspired by the Cookie Queen – the muse). I was looking for a subject for my new set of fluorescent acrylics! The easels are set up in the greenhouse and the canvases are stretched and ready to go! This is all for my own amusement, of course (the artist – the amateur) but while I “work” I will wear my Rozy EdP sample (TY!) for even more inspiration.

      Oh my gosh I wish I was there to watch! Enjoy the samples, I shall bring more at the end of the summer. 🙂 xxxxxx

  8. Maya says:

    Love love love this review!!! 😉 Have fun in Milan.

    • cookie queen says:

      Hello Maya! I love it that you find time to comment. Yes – I will do my best in Milan. I shall be very picky. 🙂

    …en nu, ik wil.

  10. poodle says:

    Beautiful description! This line is dangerous to my wallet. I’m going to forget what I just read and go have a cookie to distract myself.

    • cookie queen says:

      Thanks. I do cookies too. Hahahaha. It is a dangerous line, but once you have them do you need mich else? That is the question. Hugs back. xxx

  11. Tonia says:

    Oh Val, I just love reading your posts. très cool. Haven’t tried, must do so now!


  12. Anka says:

    Yes, Rozy is an object of desire, you put it so well! Rozy edp is on top of my wish-list, it’s a big, fat love of mine, I went through two samples and reading your wonderful review makes me yearn for it even more!

    • cookie queen says:

      Yearn is a good word. That was what happened to me when I realised I had used 10mls up and had no more! You need it. 🙂

  13. HI Val, Lovely writing on who I guess is your favourite perfumer. Cant’ wait to try the whole series of beauties. In Milan!!

      Hey Megan! Even if they aren’t for you, the .vero.profumo. line is, well, there is nothing else like it. We’ll sniff together. xxx

      • Can’t wait! I have LOVED everything I’ve tried so far from Vero but have only sampled the EDPs and bought Rozy. However they’re so outstanding that I can see why you stick to only wearing them now. They feel like they’re in another league.

  14. Came in late. Thanks to you, I’m head over heels with Vero Profumo. Classy, unique and beautiful. I’ve been mulling over which one to get first… Haven’t tried neither of the Rosy yet but I have a suspicion that I’d love. I wish I could be in Milan…

    • cookie queen says:

      Hi TM! I couldn’t possibly say which one to get first. My first love was Rubj EdP closely followed by Mito EdP. But I love them all and rarely wear anything else. That might change one day, but right now I am perfectly happy with it. Wearing Rozy EdP constantly. How about Milan next year? Time to plan. xxx
