Forbidden Rose is Avril Lavignes second Fragrance. The tag line for the fragrance is "Dare to Discover" which is said to be a message for encouraging girls/ladies to push boundaries even further than with the first scent.
"Forbidden Rose is a sparkling fusion of fruity, floral and woody notes that blend together to create a spirited composition. The fragrance opens with the forbidden fruit itself–ever enchanting red apple, enhanced by a delicious wine peach.The story unfolds further with notes of white lotus at the heart, adding a pureness and beauty.The base of the fragrance exudes warmth through vanilla and sweet praline notes. A deep woody accord, emerges at the base completing Forbidden Rose’s captivating tale"The packaging of the fragrance is actually very pretty. The bottle is created of pale violet glass, with a black rose being the stopper. The next also features a stylish band of silver, decorated with a barbed wire affect. This actually can be removed and doubles up as a ring accessory, which I found to be a nice touch.
Upon first use, It definitely seems as though its more of a night time fragrance. Its musky, definitely floral but also very sweet and spicy. After about 10 minutes though it settles down and the scent changes slightly. It becomes a lot lighter and has a nice clean fresh smell about it, becoming much more wearable for during the day. I think its a fragrance that could get away with used during the day and also of an evening and is a nice addition to my perfume collection. It currently retails at £20 from Boots.
