Description
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.

Mysterious scent.
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.

Captivating
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.

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.

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.

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!!!

I'm not really into this chemical leather scent that has been going around. :( The rose is ok but it's not balanced.

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!

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.

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.

Okay Scent
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.

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.

Difficult Scent.
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Truly awful!
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.)

Unisex...maybe
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.
