Rosarium Fragrance Reviews


My favorite in this brand. Incense and flowers on the altar. For me it's mainly a warm incense and a powdery iris. A combination i've never smell before even in the huge amount of incense based perfumes who already exist (Comme des Garçons). The first impression is really close to Rêve d'Ossian (Oriza Legrand) but then grows the exhalation of the bouquet near the font and all these old polished wooden benches.
Very evocative of an old country italian church.
So nice that it makes you wonder and daydreaming.


Another wasted concept and a mediocre interpretation of the idea. In Rosarium there is a missed chance, the use of incense theme to bring a Gothic and medieval aura of roses, which would fall like a glove on the aesthetics of the brand. Instead, we have a mediocre incense that is not going nowhere, with a smell a little sweet, a little referring the iris, but nothing that really takes a shape. As Aer, Rosarium seem lazy, and another where what is promised on the concept does not indulge in the perfume - no sign of the alleged flowers in this tabernacle. After a very well executed series of liturgical incense of CDG in many styles, Rosarium sounds unnecessary and uninteresting.


This is like Calling All Angels on a diet to me. It has that same balsamic-gourmand take on incense, only its density is closer to the infamous CdG series than the more sugary April Aromatics scent. And I think that’s Rosarium’s real strength: there’s a lot of restraint at work given the fragrance's theme and the materials involved. It’s cedar and rosewood (I think) with a coating of honeyed vanilla and a standard frankincense. Included, however, is the tiresome aldehyde C-12 that gives Avignon it’s chill, but here it’s tucked away to minimize the material’s industrial feel, allowing the warmth of the honey to shine through instead. The C-12, which is essentially a wonky pine-smelling material, is strong enough to clash with the honey though — especially once the frankincense has died down and the gourmand notes have elevated. It dries down to a uninspired ambroxan base, which is a bit of a let-down as the ambroxan swells up and swallows everything else. Rosarium is not wildly original, but it takes a decent stab at attempting to bridge two disparate genres (liturgical incense and gourmand) without trying to rewrite either one of them. Sadly, I find that these genres clash too much, largely because of the pine vs. honey battle, and so this was a tough one for me to wear. It won’t satiate the sweetest of teeth, nor could it be used to bury the dead, but it might hold some appeal for folks who want their gourmand and liturgical incense experience combined. I’m not that person, though.


Rosarium is probably my favorite release in this utterly compelling range. A smooth and highly comforting take on liturgical incense. There's something very familiar about this fragrance and yet, somehow, while bringing to mind of other similarly themed fragrances, there's still something incredibly unique about it.

The incense is clean, waxy, white and with a crystal quality. It feels fragile in its beauty but never ephemeral. There's a sense of detachment that pervades Rosarium throughout its evolution but it's juxtaposed to something warm and comforting. In this context, it reminded me of L'Orpheline by Serge Lutens. Mind me though, the two are pretty different in smell but they share the same fragrance profile. Several shades of gray (I promise less than fifty) with a lilac dye thrown in the palette. They're both aloof and affable at the same time but while the Lutens feels somewhat like a Comme Des Garcons wannabe, the Ciampagna takes the rural / rustic route. There's the violet-incense combo of Maria Candida Gentile's Exultat, something to enhance the general grayness probably provided by the iris-cedarwood duo (Carthusia 1681) while the waxy incense give a remarkable sense of cleanliness.

The drydown is all about a super warm and enveloping vanillic-woody-incense base with vetiver keeping the general powderyness / sweetness perfectly in check. Cedarwood is never overdone so that the fragrance can keep a well rounded structure from top to bottom. As most others *Ciampagnas*, Rosarium is incredibly easy to like while being slightly twisted to preserve its subtle but very defined identity. Fantastic presence and extraordinary longevity.

Well refined, easy to wear and completely addictive. A winner.

Rosarium is a balsamic incense-based scent (as the name suggests, with its “liturgical” reference) with overall a bit more complexity and color than many other niche incense scents; there’s a sweet-powdery floral accord comprising a hint of honey (quite dry and really subtle), jasmine and a dusty-buttery note of iris and carrot, and a nice, quite natural and almost raw woody base where you get both cedar (I mean “real” cedar) and vetiver. While many niche incenses smell quite synthetic, this one plays actually the “natural” card; incense itself is surely a bit artificial but here it’s surrounded by a really pleasant and compelling frame of earthy “nature” – carrot, flowers, woods, honey. All crafted in a quite subtle way, to keep incense as the main note. Somehow dusty, somehow gentle (flowers, powder), and overall much quiet, meditative, kind of gloomy as you would expect given the notes – but not overly dark, just more “churchy” with a feel of archaic rawness. Like the rest of this line, this scent as well evokes an intriguing feel of “Mediterranean gothic” which I find quite compelling and well played here as well. It’s still basically and incense scent and personally I am more than tired of this family, so don’t expect anything groundbreaking; but still, this is really nice..
