Questions & Answers for Fresh Rose Hydrating Gel Cream

Does it smell like roses or not?
I'm confused. The product description certainly implies that there is a "mood-enhancing" fragrance. One reviewer says it smells lovely, like a rose garden. But then another says it has "no fragrance at all" and someone else claims it "has a lovely fresh aroma. No noticeable rose smell." What?

I know tastes differ, but simply whether the gel smells like roses or not shouldn't be that debatable, in my opinion. And unfortunately I can't get to a Sephora to test it myself before buying.

I LOVE the smell of roses, and the (alleged?) rose fragrance of this product is the *only* reason I'm interested in it. I'm not in the market for a new moisturizer, but if this stuff truly delivers a fragrant sensory experience on top of performing well, I'm in.

So, seriously, does it smell like roses or not? Scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being "not a bit" and 10 being "it's like putting Roses de Chloé or Stella McCartney Stella on your face". (Which I wish I could do.)

And by the way, if anyone can recommend other rosy-fragranced products, I'd be very much obliged, thank you!

It does smell like roses. On a scale of one to ten, I'd say it's fairly mild and the smell dissipates quickly after application, so I'd give it a 4. If you want a stronger rose smell, then I'd check out Jurlique. They have some awesome rose smelling products. I especially like their rosewater balancing mist.

While I enjoy the smell, I do think it smells quite a bit more like cucumbers than roses.

answer 5
To be honest, I don't even smell it when I apply it. So I would say that the smell is not very strong at all.

answer 6
It has a light rose scent. Not as strong as a Stella McCartney perfume. It fades away after you put your make up on top of it.

This doesn't really have a scent to it. If anything I would say you notice very faint floral accents, but nothing dramatic.

I have similar skin and I love this product, it has not made me breakout at all and is very lightweight and refreshing.

answer 3
I've tried both and would recommend the rose gel. It's lighter and seems to have some healing/anti-inflammatory properties that help with acne. I like the lotus moisturizer, too, but it is heavier and would be more likely to cause a breakout.
