* I don’t get the rose jam on top like with the shower gel – it’s more like toasted rose cracker.. There’s a bran or cooked starch weighing it down.
* That cracker note dissipates and the rose starts to get peppery and lemony. The rose is still the star – it’s just that the supporting players change.
* At this point, Rose Jam goes in one of two ways – either soapy or fruity. Each time I wear it, it’s a bit unpredictable.
* The starchiness of the top comes back again in the base – for a bready rose, with a touch of almond and honey.
Summary: After reading Victoria’s review of Rose Jam shower gel, I picked up a bottle and now use it a few times per week. Rose Jam Pure Perfume is a really good interpretation of the scent. It lasts 8-10 hours on my skin before it becomes completely undetectable. Rose Jam is more of a nighttime scent, and I wouldn’t consider it office friendly due to the projection. If you spray it after bathing with the shower gel, you get a really decadent rose experience. For the price point, I can’t think of another Rose scent of similar quality.
Lush Scent Rose Jam is a limited edition that was available only from their website. Check there first to see if it is still available. If not, ebay is pretty much your only option.
