Aftelier Perfumes Summer Roses Body Oil Review

Press Sample (Unaffiliated Links)

Aftelier Perfumes just launched Summer Roses Body Oil, and it is a true revelation. If you are looking to give an exquisite ultra-luxe lovingly handcrafted gift, or you want to treat yourself, then I highly recommend any of Mandy Aftel's incredible creations.

As I have previously noted, 

Aftelier Perfumes is an extraordinary atelier perfumer, and everything created by Mandy Aftel is magical. Her deftly created masterpieces often feature unexpected combinations, and surprising juxtapositions of scents that are so wondrous and sublime that love quickly gives way to unmitigated obsession. Her scents are utterly captivating, and these creations are at once evocative and penetratingly visceral. When one slowly and deeply inhales her perfumes and elixirs one is quickly enveloped and enraptured by their complexity. Each of the individual elements slowly unfurls as they undergo metamorphosis against warm skin. The inevitable result, with Mandy's creations, is a perfectly balanced intoxicating scent that is far more than the sum of its parts. As any fan of Aftelier Perfumes will surely attest, everything that Mandy creates has an ethereal quality that inspires profound wonderment. Her creations are so masterfully articulated that they are truly works of art.

Aftelier Perfumes Summer Roses Body Oil is unlike anything that you have ever experienced, and as an award winning perfumer and an avid rose gardener– with a gorgeous rose garden of her own– Mandy knows as much about roses as most horticulturists and botanists. Mandy describes Summer Roses as, "a soft bouquet of honeyed, fruity, and slightly spicy roses on a summer’s day"– and that is such a poetic, and apt description of this fetching fragrance. It is such a surprising and sublime interpretation of the known permutations of the rose aroma. The honeyed and fruity rose aroma is underscored by this alarmingly beautiful spicy undercurrent, and the complexity of this commingling of disparate elements is nothing short of breathtakingly beautiful. It is the embodiment of the most beautiful, and complex, rose aroma transported in a warm summer breeze.
The nourishing base of jojoba oil and fractionated coconut oil is lightweight, fast absorbing and it has a lovely silky texture. Skin is left soft, smooth, supple, hydrated and luminous. The veil of fragrance sits close to the skin, and invites frequent sniffs in order to be enveloped by its transcendental beauty. I have never loved a body oil the way that I love Aftelier Perfumes Summer Roses Body Oil, and you must experience it firsthand to see why I love it as I do. 

Additionally, Summer Roses Body Oil can be used as a hair oil, and in that capacity it effectively fights frizz and fly-aways, conditions and moisturizes the scalp and hair, and it leaves hair manageable. The veil of fragrance is such a treat in the hair since it is ever-present throughout the day.

The elegant minimalist glass bottle is beautiful and befitting of the masterpiece that it houses, and it is so lovely that you will want to repurpose it after you finish Summer Roses.
According to Aftelier Perfumes, Summer Roses Body Oil is:

A soft bouquet of honeyed, fruity, and slightly spicy roses on a summer’s day. The mingling of their aromas is intoxicating and transporting, like when you bury your nose in a bunch of roses. This body oil leaves a soft rosy veil on the skin.

Our body oil & hair elixir is in a nourishing non-greasy base of moisturizing jojoba oil and fractionated coconut oil. This lightweight formula absorbs easily, immediately moisturizing, softening, and conditioning. Damp hair is the most vulnerable to frizz: our oil won't weigh hair down and seals the cuticle to prevents moisture from creating frizz. It leaves a veil of fragrance on your skin or in your hair that mixes beautifully with your own chemistry. As a hair elixir, apply a small amount to clean, towel-dried hair, from mid-length to ends, to nourish hair and give it extra luster
Overall Assessment: This is a masterpiece the likes of which I have never experienced in a body oil. A+
