Hollyrose is a bewitching blend of rose absolute, black pepper, soft orchids, leather, and deep patchouli. It’s a crushed-out love note to the groupies of the Los Angeles music scene of the 1970’s, with a feel of blissed-out, warm summer luxury. Room 1015 has done it again with this intensely romantic and elevated eau de parfum.

This was an awful smelling one. And it got worse when I put it on my skin. I tried to get it off for like 2 days and it still left the slight scent of it. So gross
I had such high hopes after using 1015 and loving it. This smells like an inexpensive loud scent that comes from a drugstore. Maybe it’s just me, but this missed the mark when there was so much potential.
The first time I put this on I straight up didn’t like it. It was strong, gave me vibes of sitting in a bar. Had a strange smoky smell. I just didn’t like it. However, I gave it a second chance and I’m super glad I did. This is definitely a unique scent. It definitely makes me feel like I’m hanging with 70s rockstars when I wear it. I love it now! I have no idea what changed but I’m very happy with it. I will probably be purchasing a full bottle.
Old Lady Chic
I don’t know what this reminds me of, but it is some scent from my grandma’s house from childhood. It smells like an old lady— not going to lie. It just smells like an old lady in the way that you can still wear it and not feel like an old lady. It is strong. It isn’t patchouli. It isn’t any scent I can really put my finger on. But it is nostalgic and gives me the feels. I have no idea what it smells like exactly. It is something from my grandma’s bathroom from when I was a kid and would rummage through all her things. I don’t know if it is a powder, makeup, perfume, or what. I just know that I love it. And I get compliments on it all the time. Other people say it smells familiar, but no one has really been able to place it.
Good Lord. this is that weird perfume you find at the dollar store or at goodwill lol. Very strong, old fashioned smell. ugh.
The scent wasn't what I expected
Liked it more than I thought I would
At first it smelled a little too spicy/musky to me, but once I put it on and let it settle, the Rose notes came out more and it turned out to be a deep sexy smell that would work on me or my husband. I’ve received complements on it, and it lasted all day.
It was... okay.
The scent is pretty nice, it smells a little powdery and, "old woman," to me for the first few minutes but after it sat on my skin for a while it rounded out. My boyfriend told me, "you smell like a new jacket." The only issue I have is that it doesn't last very long at all.
My number one favorite so far
This is amazing and I’m definitely debating canceling my subscription to make this my new scent. I wore Marc Jacobs Honey for years and started this subscription to try and find a new signature scent. This just might be it
Grandmas old classic meets hippie chic
everything relates back to saturday night live
there’s a great saturday night live sketch where it’s a parody of THE VIEW and it’s emma stone doing lindsay lohan. it’s the purrrfect sexy junkie ally sheedy bit, where she’s got the too big purse full of surprises she left herself. she shimmy shakes those crazy bones, pulls out of her merry adderall and poppers purse the parliament lights. the sheepskin booties. then the atomizer, spritzes it & says, “i’m starting a line of perfume ... here it is ... it kind of smells like leather.” and for some reason emma stone can be jangly boned but reads wholesome, but we fiend to fear for the health of our hollyroses. (NOTES: patchouli, rose, tuscan leather [sheesh, do less, drake doesn't need to have everything], black currant, black pepper.)
I had to go wash it off because it was making my head hurt.
It smelled alot like bug spray to me. Very strong!
I did not like it at all. Didn’t smell like I thought it would
Does have a strong leather smell but it’s not to over powering or manly. Definitely not something I would wear everyday
Not for me
Smells alright but smelled too old for my liking
Just too much pepper and clove smelling for my preference with nothing sweet to balance it out
Smells too peppery. Not at all like the description
I really like this
Way to floral for me. Seems more like a room spray than a perfume.
this is excellent
The leather really complements the other notes. This is a clean scent, and I adore it.
A beautiful sexy, leathery rose. Absolutely stunning and very much fitting with the "vibe" projected by the brand. One of my favorite Scentbird discoveries! Only downside is that it isn't the most long lasting.
The description of this perfume is very accurate. It may not be a daytime perfume for most, but I think it screams "Who runs the world, GIRLS!".
Hollyrose by room 1015
Reminded me of an elderly womans perfume. Not for me.
Where is the Rose?
I was concerned this would be too floral but I don’t get any rose at all. It smells better when first sprayed. Then it dries down to mostly leather. I don’t hate it. It’s almost too masculine. It’s wearable but not my first choice. It lasts a long time too.
Super strong patchouli sent. Not a fan.
Overpowering patchouli smell. Smells like old lady perfume.
I didn't care for this scent. I would not suggest.
Did not enjoy this scent.
One of my favorites
Love this one! Smells great!
Perfect super close to the scent im trying to find
want it on subscription to receive and more!
way too strong
Smells awful. Had to shower after spraying as it made me completely nauseous. Absolutely will not be wearing it ever again or recommending. Straight to the trash.
the rose was a little overwhelming
Absolutely gorgeous! Dusty, leathery, rosy. Hippy musical festival in a field of roses. Intriguing.
The rose was too strong for me
THIS FRAGRANCE IS ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! I GET A LINE OF FOLLWERS EVERYTIME I WEAR IT. MASCULINE YET A BIT GIRLY. DEFINITLEY SEDUCTIVE. 1969 CALLED AND WANTS US TO ALL WEAR THIS SCENT!!!
Really didn't like it
45 to 54
This perfume is very sweet and smells very flowery! I personally don't care for it at all.
This scent was not for me! It def smells like a holly bush. Reminds me of salisbury steak and gym socks. No bueno.
Very strong and felt like a grandma wearing this.
My Fave Sdscott
This is a really interesting and artistically composed fragrance. I think the nose behind this 100% accomplished what they set out to create.....to me it's a "vibe fragrance" and really feeling it. Looking forward to testing some others from Room 1015.
Leather isn’t better
The leather just didn’t work for me. Initial spray was nice but it just didn’t work after about 30 minutes on my skin. I know others that love it.
woof too much on me. super heavy and smelled bad to me. Not for me.
Not sure how this is even a perfume
It smells like someone dumped a bottle of patchouli on a leather saddle. There is not a single floral or sweet or perfume smell detectable. If it were mixed with a sweet scent or even a musk it might be nice but on its own it’s literally just a wood/leather smell and i don’t see how it could be considered a perfume. I threw this away immediately after getting it.
This scent is like rawhide mixed with old books and cat pee. This is a strong smell and not in a good way. I made others sample this spray and everyone was in agreement ewwwwww what's that smell. This is a miss and can't give this sample away. Just trash it!
Didn’t like the scent
Not my cup of....ROSES?
I queued this up..solely based on note list and description. HOWEVER, what my mind put together as an expectation to what I smelt was complete POLAR opposites. To be rather blunt, it reminded me of visiting my Nanny at the home when she fell to dementia. Im a Granny myself...but this is for sure a much more MATURED scent. The 2 stars...well it is definitely a very defined scent that has lasting power...That, I will give. That's about all I can give. To be rather direct...I have not had a good experience with any of Room 1015 selection I've queued.
The black currant is very nice
The leather, rose, & dirty patchouli opening is very 70s. In the drydown the freshly crushed black currant shines.
The smell was not appealing.
25 to 34
Big Miss :(
I'm a big fan of leather and tobacco in fragrances, but I got none of that with this one. VERY sweet and... matronly? Mature? I'm not sure what word to use, but it's something my older aunt would wear. Disclaimer though, that I tend to dislike overly sweet, feminine scents and lean towards more androgynous.
Nice. Different. Kind of smoky/leathery top note which takes some getting used to. Which I have and have grown to like.
25 to 34
this scent is very unique, mysterious and long lasting. It's captivating warm and romantic scent sets it apart from all others. This is a must have. an entire bottle is on my Christmas list this holiday season!
55 to 64
This is an amazing fragrance!!!! It smells mysterious, rugged, fresh, sexy, feminine and alluring all at once!!!! The staying power is great. This can be a regular scent for me
very classic, and very bold in an unusual way
upon first application, the darker more masculine notes of leather and black pepper all but slap you in the face. I found that quite intimidating, and until it melts into my skin it stays very masculine. once those initial top notes dissipate I find this fragrance to be a very interesting floral scent, in my mind it brings up a classy Victorian lady strolling through the garden with hand tooled leather gloves and boots. It took me a couple weeks but this fragrance has grown on me, it has a dignified and cozy feel to it while still being unusual and interesting.
45 to 54
Below is the descript from fragrantica.com My thoughts at the end. 🌹 Cement flowers flout and sprout on Sunset Boulevard. Powered by the rock star fantasy, deflowered by the love of art, these young innocent ROSES become clutching vines in twisted poses. From anonymous groupie bedrooms to Hollywood backstage feats by way of their idols’ crumpled bed sheets, these ORCHID women awaken, leaving a scent of skin, night and caresses in their wake. Petals and thrills under the frills. In the dip of an ankle, like a fragrance of finely worked LEATHER, scratched with tales by the nails of guitar gods. A captivating, alienating trail without fail… Between romanticism and decadence." - a note from the brand. “The fragrance Hollyrose is a black leather rose and refers to teenage groupies who ruled over Sunset Boulevard in the 70’s. Anita Pallenberg, Bebe Buell, Pamela Des Barres were the muses and queens of the Hollywood scene, dating the likes of Jimmy Page, Mick Jagger, Alice Cooper, Robert Plant, Iggy Pop… Hangin’out in L.A, becoming the next somebody, the next fashion icon on some magazine covers, rock stars and their devotees could parade their sounds of tomorrow dressed in clothes of derision. A perfume as a tribute to these amazing women who sent most powerful rock n’ roll men to their knees”. Dr. Mike 🌹 My first impression was that smelled like an old perfume. Something vintage I had smelled before on a glam older relative or friend's mother when I was younger. Very strong and seductive and glamorous. A lady on the prowl in tall boots and deep decolletage. Look at me, I am here it says. After a 6 hour assessment I am sticking with that. I think the quip from fragrantica is very accurate altho perhaps more Bianca Jagger that Miss P. P is much more delicate than this. It's a very serious heavy fragrance.
35 to 44
Not for me!
This is a very strong fragrance. Heavy on the leather and tobacco. Not for me. I usually like deep intense scents but this one is just not a good combination in my opinion.
18 to 24
I thought this would be a little more "woody" but to me, it was more just overpowering. I went to my first day of work with about 3 sprits of this and felt like I had to keep my distance from everyone because it was that strong.
35 to 44
Not for me
This scent was just too mature smelling for me.
Pretty unimpressive and very little staying power.
Smell is horrible
This I would not recommend the smell is nothing like rose or flowers. It smell like burnt wood
45 to 54
Just a little to flowery for my taste
This scent is very floral. I don't particularly like floral scents. The good thing is that it isn't very overbearing.
I absolutely love this fragrance. There are so many beautiful tones and highlights.
25 to 34
This one is interesting! Don't let the name fool you, this one is a dark and intense mix of leather and patchouli that bites and doesn't let go. Very intense.
35 to 44
Not for Me
this stuff is terrible - smells like a mix of wood and old musk...not my cup of tea and I do like warm woodsy scents but not this one
25 to 34
This is such a sexy fragrance! Leather and rose on me mostly, and almost a smokey note. Like being in a smokey bar in a leather jacket. Definitely recommend for the edgier personality!!!
25 to 34
I'm not really into this chemical leather scent that has been going around. :( The rose is ok but it's not balanced.
45 to 54
Guys, don't be afraid of this scent!
I wanted to find a scent with roses that smelled more masculine. Then I came across this. It's a very strong scent, be warned! One spray will do it. It's a very heavy mixture of rose and leather. I've received several compliments on it already and they cannot tell it's "parfum" and not "cologne". This has to be my absolute favorite scent so far!
35 to 44
Black leather jacket
I felt like a bad ass when I wore this scent. I had on my black leather jacket, heels and felt so powerful and mysterious. I also picked up several numbers at the bar and I really think this scent is the prime suspect for the confidence.
35 to 44
The scent is lovely, but not on me. The scent itself is flowery with a soft musk, but on me, it's peppery. I'll try it during a different time of the month and see if it's any better.
25 to 34
At first sniff, this smells great. It has an amazing rose smell but the after smell is strong of smoke/cigarettes. I actually think it is okay but my husband hated it. Would not recommend.
45 to 54
This is the worst, most awful, bitter smell I've ever experienced in a perfume.
35 to 44
Unique Rose Scent 🌹
This scent is a sexy rose. It’s a strong peppery perfume and I was glad that I got to try it. I wouldn’t buy a full bottle, but worth having it for the month. It’s long lasting and memorable.
I wanted to love this. I really did. The leather with the rose just sounded so sexy! Unfortunately the soapy scent never really leaves. Have you ever smelled something so intense you tasted it? Well I tasted soap all day. The features of the scent are relatively accurate. It is a clean scent in the sense that it smells soapy. It is also an office scent because it would be perfect for a woman who in a boys club atmosphere. It would blend well with cologn and give you a strong vibe. I would almost consider it unisex. There is nothing sexy or feminine about this fragrance. The soapy smell does give it a winter vibe and there is almost a Smokey feel to it. Again, perfect if you work with men. My husband feels neutral about the smell but says it smells old. I agree. It has a dated vibe. No one at work commented on it. It’s been over 12 hours and I still taste the soap. The smell has improved as the day went on but I find it insane to spray it before bed so it will smell good at work. Currently it has more of smokey leathery vibe. I never really got the rose scent which disappoints me. It is definitely a one and done scent.
Love this scent
At first spray you smell the rose, then the leather comes out and lingers. Your left with a delightful mix throughout the day of pepper and rose.
No, No, Nope.
Not a pleasant scent for me at all. Besides shipping being drastically late AGAIN, it's disappointing that I hated both the scents I chose this month. I wish there were a limited number of "Do-overs" or something - I end up disliking just about half my choices. I put this one on my list before there were reviews but based on the description, it seemed interesting to try! No, don't do it. I really have a hard time imagining this smelling appealing on anyone. It's just a strange, kind of "old lady" scent.
Try the Fragrantica website before ordering. You'll get a stronger description of the scent. It's a learning process of sniffing many scents and understanding fragrance notes. Wearing unique fragrances takes learning and a bit of daring.
I didn't like this fragrance. Very loud and intense smell. More for an older person!
Unfortunately, I got this perfume instead of what was in my que and it’s awful. Not me at all. Smells either like an old lady or a man’s cologne. If you’re looking for sweet, floral scents this is NOT it.
Unfortunately this perfume was way too intense for me, very masculine lots of leather. It’s definitely for a very bold adventurous type who loves leather and pepper notes
Not for everyone, but I like it!
This is a strong, grown-up fragrance, heavy with rose and leather, in that order. I sometimes get a bit of what smells like pipe smoke, as well. Pleasantly complex and interesting, but I can see how it wouldn't float everyone's boat. Doesn't have amazing staying power, but it's not bad, either.
Smells like soap
Really Irish springy
I got mine today. I spelled the bottle and thought the same thing! Strait soap. Not getting the woody office vibe suggested. I plan to wear it tomorrow to work and review it then.
I love this fragrance it makes me feel so fashion forward very chic
This smells not so great at first but 24 hours later it smells good. I noticed I like the smell on a jacket or something the day after it has been sprayed on there. But not crazy about it at first spray. I wouldn't recommend it. It is strong but it does last a long time.
Not a fan.
Enjoyed wearing this
This has been one of my favorites because I love the rose scent. The patchouli lasted throughout the day but did not overpower me.
Not my favorite
I really get the leather and patchouli, and it’s just not for me
Do not like this fragrence at all. Smells like bug spray. Dont know what to write. I just dont like.
Do you like the smell of leather? As in, you just bought a leather handbag and you're pulling it out of the packaging for the first time or you're trying to shove your foot in a new pair of cowboy boots. It's just ALL leather, ALL UP in your face. I kept looking for the other notes in the dry down, but they straight up disappeared (if they were ever there at all). My husband didn't like it, my friend said it smelled like Dial soap, and me...well, it gave me a headache. So long, Hollyrose, I really wanted a love affair.
Intense and Gorgeous
This perfume is loud and brash and very sure of herself. The rose is a deep lush sexy rose that takes a backseat after the dry down and just lingers back there anchoring a heady intense leathery heart. It smells more drier and more smoky on my husband but in a great way. Easily a unisex fragrance. The sillage is moderate and it sticks around all day.
I love so many kinds of perfumes, here are my favorites just so you can get an idea of what fragrances are my style: Thierry Mugler Alien, Thierry Mugler Womanity, Dolce & Gabana Light Blue, Michael Kors Michael, Valntina Acqua Floreale, Calvin Kline Equphoria, and I could go on and on. This is my 23rd bottle from scentbird (I have over 100 bottles total in my collection), and the first bottle that will go into the trash. This scent honestly was just the worst. I thought maybe it was just my chemistry, that happens and I certainly didnt want to give a perfume a bad rating if that was simply the case, so had 3 other people try it, and it was terrible on all of us and no one was happy about having it on their skin or near their nose. It became the thing our group of friends laughed about for the rest of the afternoon. Anytime someone came near us they would say something along the lines of "what is that? it stinks" IT REALLY WAS THAT BAD and Im just kind of in awe. I hate to use the term "smells like an old lady" but this really hit the nail on the head. It smells of a combination of Jean Nate, White Diamonds, hair spray, arthritis cream, maybe a slight hint of Channel #5 and that scented powder older ladies used to wear (some still do) in the 80s and 90s. Probably before then, but I cant say for certain as I was born in the 80s. I dont particularly care for White Diamonds or Channel #5, but I dont think they are bad perfumes, and respect them as the icons they are. So please don't take my description as bashing those perfumes, they are treasures to the industry. This particular perfume creator seems to have tried to mimic the profile of those perfumes, and did a terrible job at it. I enjoy scents that are "younger" and also ones that are for older ladies, This was just beyond the "older lady" category. The scent is "thick." I cant even think of how to explain it. Not refreshing, not pleasant, just heavy, overpowering and all up in your face. I was miserable the entire time it was on me and slightly embarrassed about the offensive odor my body was casting off into the air. This is the "fart" of the perfume industry. I felt like Pig-Pen from the Peanuts cartoon, stink lines and all. This perfume was also only the second perfume, out of all the perfumes Ive smelled over my lifetime, that induced an immediate headache. Vanilla Fields was the other that did that as well. As for staying power, well it gets a solid five stars. There was no amount of scrubbing or washing that could get this scent off of us. We tried hand soap, dish soap, rubbing alcohol and as a last ditch effort, prayer. A prayer to any and all gods listening to please get this demon of a scent off our skin. Alas, evil triumphed over good and we just had to wait for it to diminish on its own. Which took well over 12 hours. To each their own, you might like it. That was not my experience, or the experience of the other 3 people who wore it, or the other 10+ people who were at the gathering with us who were stuck smelling it on us.
Was it bad? Try soft florals like Michael by Michael Kors. Miss Dior Blooming, Donna Karan Gold, Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Floral. I'm not a patchouli fan (at least the unaged, raw type of patch.)
Yes! Lol I agree 100%
Funniest review I've read in awhile. I chuckled quite a few times but most importantly I have what feels like a very accurate take on this scent. TY! 😄
Really, really strong unpleasant odor. I like a WIDE variety of scents (floral, musky, etc..) and I couldn't tolerate the scent of this.
The initial spray on my skin smelled of black currant, rose and leather. The dry down being very much the same, only with rose being the most prominent. It’s confident and sweet, mostly feminine in my opinion. Longevity seems good for me. Liked the fragrance over all but hoped that the other notes would have pulled on my skin more than the rose.
