This is it: The scent that launched a new line from renowned Swiss perfumer Andy Tauer. He created the limited-edition Rose Flash and had so much fun -- and sold every bottle so quickly -- that he decided to launch a new line that would give him the creative freedom to make whatever perfume seemed right at the moment. Rose Flash begins with dark shock of purply red that brightens as the jam-inflected heart blooms. That lovely orange color comes from the richness of the rose absolute. A slight sweetness is balanced by ambery wood tones that make Rose Flash perfectly unisex and sultry from start to finish. Andy doesn't share a full list of notes for Rose Flash, preferring to let your nose explore without preconception, but we can tell you that it's a diffusive, tenacious creation overflowing with greens, spices, citrus, and woods.

Rose Flash was inspired by (what else?) the flower herself.
