Chapter 6: Steel Rose (wild rose, English rose, white rose, woodsmoke, patchouli, dragonsblood, metallic copper, metal, smoky incense) reminds you that badass roses have thorns, and aren't only sweet demure little things.
Both in the bottle and on application, I’m definitely getting the perfume’s namesake here with a nice fragrant rose. What makes this one really unique is how the rose is brought out beautifully against an awesome backdrop made up of a good quantity of smoke and metal, which gives a very nice contrast to the sweetness of the floral.
This scent is feminine in a strong independent way. This is a princess who doesn’t want to wait around for a knight to come rescue her – she straps on her own sword, saddles up her horse and goes forth to create her own future. One of my favourites of the whole set. 9/10.
