Probably the most famous perfume of the house, created in 1998 by Henry Fremont (CK One, Juicy Couture, Vera Wang Princess), Romance Perfume By Ralph Lauren opens with a distinct rose, and then it settles down to a green accord, which is signature note of this perfume, and gives, at least in the middle notes, and at least to me, an edible quality of juicy pear. It’s not that different in style from Eau So Fresh by Marc Jacobs.
And all this is kind of attractive, but in a subtle way. Not because it’s soapy and clean, but thanks to a vague fruity sweetness that will create something between chaste and pure and single-and-ready-to-mingle. As time passes, a more intense floral bouquet takes the stage at times, then it leaves and comes back with a trace of lemon (not sure if it was always there or if I was just distracted).
And so it fades, this Perfume Ralph Lauren Romance For Women, soft, feminine and (almost) innocent.
