Aerin Evening Rose Smells Like Roses Petals, Not the Flower, The Doll

When I was eight years old, my crush was invited to my birthday party. This was huge for me because although he lived in my neighborhood, he went to another school, so I rarely saw him. People, this was love truly! I remember he used to play basketball in the park with his friend Ryan and every day they’d walk up the hill past my house to go home, and I’d stare longingly out my bedroom window at him while I was working on my homework.

Anyway, he was the first boy to gift me a doll, Rose Petals. I’m telling you this because Aerin Evening Rose smells like Roses Petals, not the flower, the doll! I remember smelling that doll for the first time. It smelled like young love! Ha..I’m kidding. She smells sweet of roses with a slight smokiness. It was a very pretty smell for a doll, and I promise there was no weird plastic fragrance going on.

Aerin Evening Rose smells exactly like the doll! I went to dinner last night with my sister, and we did a little Lord & Taylor Friends and Family damage. While I was browsing fragrances, I misted myself with Aerin Evening Rose. I always forget how much this evokes the memory of being eight and madly in love with the boy from the house around the corner that went to different school.

Aerin Evening Rose

If you like rose fragrances, this is for you. It contains notes of blackberry which gives it a little bit of a sweet jammy note. This is combined with a gorgeous Bulgarian rose followed by a sultry cognac note. I’ve always been a fond fan of rose fragrances especially ones done right and Aerin gets it all right. This is sexy, sultry, but also flirty and sweet

After I got home, I changed my clothes and jumped into bed with my friend Mattie to watch some TV, and he said, “What are you wearing!?” I was stunned that after changing clothes that the scent was still so evident. It turns into a rather warm, comforting rose at the dry down which obviously lingers on skin well if he could still smell it after I changed my clothes.

I love fragrances like this one. Ones that not only evoke memories but ones that create conversation and have people asking you what it is you smell like because they obviously like what they are smelling!

Aerin Matchbox Gift Set

I wouldn’t say go out and buy a big old bottle of Aerin Evening Rose just yet but try out the Aerin Matchbox Gift Set for $20 at Sephora.com and you can experience almost all of the Aerin fragrances before committing to a big buy!

Who knows maybe one will evoke memories of being 8 and being in love for the first time.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Oh my! You’ve sold me! I’m definitely picking up a bottle of Evening Rose. 🙂

    Wow! What a throw back, I am buying this, like now! I agree she had a great scent for a doll. I adored rose petal as a young child and even had a pink rose petal bike. I had a bit of nostalgia a few years ago and bought a rose petal doll on evilbay lol.

      haha right? 😉 I’ve done this with He-Man, I may or may not have a Castle Grayskull on my bookshelf courtesy an evilbay late night nostalgic buy!

    Sweet memory!

    Unfortunately, I do not remember this doll at all. I was obsessed with Strawberry Shortcake as a kid, though, so I’d buy any perfume that smells like that doll.

    I have no idea who Rose Petals is, but Evening Rose sounds lovely. I’m not a huge rose fan, but I do like when they dry down to something creamy and warm. Must give this a go!
