pureDKNY A Drop of Rose and a possible dupe for Chantecaille's Darby Rose


So DKNY have a new addition to their 'pure' line. A Drop of Rose follows A Drop of Vanilla and A Drop of Verbena.

And it has a lovely back story about the amount of rose petals picked to make the oil and how they are picked pre-dawn etc etc..

But I stopped reading that when I smelt it. It's the closest I've come across yet to the now impossible-to-find-deleted-from-range-we-all-cried-when-it-went Chantecaille Darby Rose.


By far the best Rose fragrance I've ever used - this went out of circulation around 10 years ago (?? was it REALLY that long? *cries*) and left a lot of users bereft.

This is not exactly like it - the DKNY rose is Turkish for starters, not from Grasse - but to the average non-expert whiffer (it SO is a word) - its a good close second. So much so that I'm putting it away and saving it for Spring when I will bring out my very last teeny tiny pot of the Darby Rose body cream

Unless you're Persolaise, Candy Perfume Boy or Basenotes - you'd never know. Ish.

pureDKNY A Drop of Rose launches 3rd February. Prices start at £37.00

  1. I looove this line! I have so many happy memories from when I had the PURE scent about a year ago but I often think it's harder to find in stores. Good to know that it's still going strong! Also for all of you that loved Chantecaille's Darby Rose :)

    Love H&P

  4. Thanks Caroline - I'll definitely give this fragrance a try when it's available.
    Has anyone ever tried the Trésor Midnight Rose from Lancôme? This was the first rose fragrance I had ever tried and I love it (It replaced Dior Addict2 in my heart)

  6. I really enjoy DKNY frangrances. They may not last as long as some other brands but they light, everyday, very wearable scents.
