In the vial: Rose and something more to ground it.
On skin, wet: It smells like rose incense to me, dried rose petals dipped onto wooden sticks. Yet there is a freshness to the rose. The rosewood adds a lot to the party here. It tempers the sweetness of the rose and makes it more resin-like.
On skin, drying: More of the same.
Overall: It reminds me of some of the Nocturne Alchemy blends that have a rose incense note it them. Except not as heavy. i have similar stuff, so I don't need a bottle of this, but CO's rose seems very natural to me and never sweet or cloying and I would recommend it to people who love rose and those who like rose but find it too sweet for them in perfumes. This one has a nice dryness to it.
