Rated 5 out of 5 by Cbow Beautiful scent!
When I moved to Ireland, I was unable to bring any of my favorite perfumes/scents with me because of the fear of them breaking in my suitcase and drenching everything. Not only was I excited to see The Body Shop in the Republic of Ireland (as I knew they were in the UK, including Northern Ireland), but that they just released these perfumes. I bought the fiji water lotus in body mist, as that was all they had in that scent and I LOVED it, and I bought this one because I assumed it'd have more lasting power being an eau de toilette. The scent is beautiful and airy, but not too light where you don't smell it. It's not as heavy and rich as the British Rose from TBS, as it's made with a different rose and doesn't had any other added florals like that one does (that one has peony and another flower I believe).
This does last awhile, though obviously not as long as a straight up parfum. However, I'd much rather buy an eau de toilette and have to refresh halfway through the day than buy a super heavy parfum that makes people choke, as those tend to have a lot of alcohol. This one is strictly a light rose... think bottled beach roses. It is timeless and won't make you smell like an old person, which is a plus. I loved it so much, I couldn't part with it when I moved back to the US, so I wrapped it up in towels and it survived the trip -- not like I'd probably be that mad if it broke and all my clothes ended up smelling like Atlas Rose! lol

Rated 5 out of 5 by EllenJo Favorite new fragrance
The predominant note in this Atlas Mountain Rose isn't rose at all, at least not in a traditional sense. At first sniff, it's an undetermined, fresh botanical, slightly green and woodsy.
The delicate floral undertone is evident, but it's not overly feminine or cloying and or old-fashioned. It's youthful and joyous. It's my new favorite scent. It reminds me of a favorite discontinued one-note perfume made by another company. I mourned its demise. But Atlas Mountain Rose by the Body Shop is now my new favorite. The eau de toilette has great staying power, subtly lingering gently in the air around me and clinging to the fabric of my clothes. I'll catch small sniffs of it throughout my day and feel energized. I bought it as a small purse size atomizer on sale and liked it so much I purchased the full-size bottle.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lorina Perfect except for the packaging
I love this fragrance, which is light, floral and gently lingering without being offensive or overpowering. My only complaint is the new packaging. Although the bottle is very pretty, the product now comes boxed and shrink-wrapped, which seems pretty much in direct conflict with Body Shop's original mandate. Which is a sad step away from responsible business.

Rated 5 out of 5 by calicoolchick Didn't disappoint!
I was immediately smitten with this fragrance in the body butter but wanted a spray to layer over it to deepen the scent and I am not disappointed. The fragrance is great! The rose is so fresh and pure and it's woodsy undertones are perfect and make it so sexy not frumpy or girly! So glad I have this for Valentine's Day coming up! Ii will go perfectly with bouquets, champagne, chocolates, jewelry or .....?!
