Rose Anonyme Cologne Absolute

RATING (out of 5 stars): 4.5 stars (but only in winter)

COST: $195 for 6.7 fluid ounces (or get a $75 bottle through Birchbox)

THE SKINNY: I'm smitten with Atelier Cologne's Rose Anonyme Cologne Absolute. Rose scents normally aren't my thing, but this cologne mixes in spice, ginger and other woodsy scents.

From the first whiff, I was blown away.

This smells like Christmas. It's heavily spicy, almost masculine, and brings a whole new dimension to the scent of Bergamont rose. I smell patchouli and a winter fire. And I smile.

This is a heavy fragrance that works well in winter but would be too much for the warmer months.

KEEP OR TOSS: Keep. There's nothing else like this scent. If anyone ever wants to buy me a special present, this would be it.
